Coming home

Just a small post today: as of September first I joined Betabit (site is in Dutch). After having had several employers in the last few years, this feels like coming home. On our way to do nice things…!  

Making Valid choices

As of December first I’ll be joining the ranks of Valid (www.valid.nl – Dutch website). I’m very excited to start over there and I am convinced we will be able to do great stuff together 🙂 I would also like to take this opportunity to thank BDO (www.bdo.nl – Dutch website) for the past period and …

Changing lanes

As you probably know I’ve worked for my own company for quite a while (see my post ‘A new challenge‘ of October first 2008). Because business was good, I had way too little time to keep this blog up to date. Sorry for that… Since the beginning of this month, that all has changed: I joined …

Twitter

Of course, twitter has been around for quite a while. The popularity of the service is booming, because it is becoming more and more mainstream now. I myself joined somewhere in the end of 2007, when it was still underground… :p Do you (actively) use twitter? And if so, what’s your account, do you use …

Installing my laptop after a repair

I’m reinstalling my laptop after I got it back from a repair… EMPTY (grrr). What tools shouldn’t I forget when preparing this laptop to be my development machine? Already have Visual Studio, SQL Management Studio, Office and the Windows Live tools installed… (and of course I have all kinds of tools at hand from my …

(Re)surface

I know it has been a while since my last post, but I’m about to resurface! I’ve played in a musical the entire month of December and (because of that) we were busy getting our company up and running again in the new year. So now I’ll be developing more and I’ll probably have more …

I will return…

I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks. Between (the announcements at) all the congresses to follow like PDC and Tech·Ed, all the projects to do, the rehearsal for the musical I’m in in December (Dutch) and the start of our new company (Dutch), I didn’t have a lot of time to blog… Since we …

A new challenge …

As of today, I am no longer working for Avanade. I had a good time over there, but my personal goals changed. I found a new challenge: I started a company with a good friend of mine. We’re still building the website, so the information is not there yet. But it will be soon. So …

Rick van den Bosch .net – part II

It’s been a while because I’ve been so busy lately, but the next (technical) step for my personal  website is now online. When browsing to http://rickvandenbosch.net/blog/, the content of my blog here is displayed sort of mirrored over there. I used an OpenSource RSS component to read my private rss feed from blogging about, and …

Short personal update – March 2008

This weekend we got back from a skiing trip we went on with the school my girlfriend works at. We had a great time! The kids were great, and so were the teachers and the Huski people who were there to teach the kids how to ski and snowboard. If they need an extra pair of …

Upcoming: holiday!

I won’t be blogging for the next week. Tomorrow evening, we are going on a ski vacation! I was invited to join the skicamp my girlfriend is going on with her work. A nice opportunity to brush up my skiing skills. Let’s hope we’ll come back in one piece, but I’m counting on it 😉I’ll catch …

Earphones gone bad

Until the Zune is available in Europe (when will that be, if ever…), I’m using an iPod. To be honest, I’m pretty satisfied with the product although iTunes still doesn’t feel like a solid piece of software… (understatement anyone?)After lots of hours playtime the original earphones of my iPod died, or at least the right …
