Using the Thinkvantage key under Ubuntu (8.10)

A few weeks ago I found a way to assign the Thinkvantage key from my Thinkpad R60 to open a terminal under Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex (8.10). Because most documentation is outdated, I will place and share a little tutorial with you. I will go to all the steps, even those who might be useless for some, just to make sure that everything is correct.
About Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope): I don’t know if this works in 9.04, but I’m planning a clean install real soon (I talking about 2 – 3 days). You always can subscribe to my RSS-feed to get notification.

Changed to WordPress + new Domain name

Hi people

After a few weeks of designing I have finally finished a blog design for wordpress and decided to use it as my default blog engine.

Why? Well because it’s popular and while I was designing I noticed it was quite easy to extend with your own code. Next to that, it’s also stable ^_^

Together with this wordpress I decided to ‘ditch’ my old domeinname (codeforpron.com) and in a few days or weeks I will redirect them to this domein (http://stijn-dhaese.be/blog).

The disadvantage of this little operation is that I will lose all my old post from my own system, however I currently moving them to wordpress and for most of the time it’s just copy and paste (lucky me).

Offcource you can find lots of information how to get it running if you google a little bit, but even then it was hard for me to get it up and running. Because I know that I’m not the only leek in the world who is learning C++, I written a small tutorial in human language. Here you can read how you install MinGW and get it up and running together with Geany under Windows Vista. I did this under the “home premium” edition of Vista, so the change is big this will work under other versions as well. (and hopefully also under VISTA SP1)
