Almost a year ago I made a few icon’s that I used as network shortcut for my network so I could easily connect to my laptop. Today I improved them and re-release them for you under the name Black OS icon. Next to an Ubuntu and Windows Icon, I also added a Apple Icon.
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).
I just started to learn C++ and finding a good compiler for windows Vista isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. Even more, after I found one it didn’t really work on its own. 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)
Problem: You have 1 hosting package but 2 websites. How do you make a nice looking redirect, so that they run nicely side by side, with .htaccess?
