Implementing security.txt

Two and a half months ago, I checked another item off my ever-growing todo-list; writing and uploading a security.txt-file. I honestly don’t expect it to do much of anything, but at the very least, something now exists. I think having a way to easily contact me about potential issues is important enough that I don’t want people to have to hunt around for it. On the other hand, the amount of traffic to the site is an argument to leave well enough alone.

Graduating!

Over the years, my studies have inspired a number of posts here on the blog, and for good reason. Learning has been a significant inspiration for me on a number of areas. Sharing what I have learned and how that has affected my thinking on a number of areas has been a useful part of the studies.

Changing it up, yet again

I know that it has been a very short time indeed since I last changed the theme, but I have not been completely happy with Latte, either. In particular, the fact that it has too much white space on either side of the posts when viewed on a large monitor has bothered me, but also the size of the header image, neither of which can be changed on Latte.

Changing it up, again.

Since changing to Alchem back in Q1, there have been a few things that bothered me about it, and I’ve been looking for a replacement for some time now. The other day, I came across this one, called Latte. It does many of the same things that Alchem did, but better.

#BTS: Brain Teaser Saturday

I happen to like brain teasers and logic puzzles, and will be posting a few going forward. I will do it like this: On one Saturday, I will post a brain teaser, leaving the solution out of it. The following week, I will post another brain teaser, again sans solution, and include the solution to the preceding week’s puzzle. These posts will all be titled #BTS, for Brain Teaser Saturday. I hope you enjoy!

Seven years, four hundred posts

The first post to this blog was made on September 14th, 2007. Since then, seven years have gone by, I have moved twice, changed jobs as many times, gotten married and become a father, and embarked on a bachelor’s degree. The blog has gone from being hosted on Blogger to being hosted on WordPress, and I have moved it from a subdomain to the primary domain where you find it now.

Cookies!

Over the course of the last few weeks, you may have come across this message when visiting the site:
 

 
If you wonder why, there are two reasons. The first is that I want to be open and honest about most things, and this site is one of those things. The second, which is why it happened now, rather than at some point down the line, is that the EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications took effect for Norway, as a signatory to the EEA agreement. If you click the link in the picture, you will be taken to the cookie policy page of my site, which tells you about the external cookies, as well as shows you where to find the privacy policies of the external cookies used.

A new outlook on life

Having played with the idea for some time now, I finally decided it was time to switch out my old theme for this one. Though there was nothing wrong with the old theme, per se, I had grown tired of it, and opted to swap to this one. The old theme, NewBlue by Blog Design Studio has served me well since I first started using it. That, however, is almost four years ago, and I wanted the site to look differently.
 
For now, I will use Twenty Twelve, by the WordPress team. If anyone has any suggestions for a new theme that might suit the site, feel free to drop me a line or two in the comments.

2010 roundup

Almost past us, I think it is time to take a look back and take stock of 2010, and see what the year brought.

A hiatus

It’s been a while since I’ve posted with any regularity here, and it has a logical and simple explanation; life has caught up with me.
 
Inbetween planning a wedding, working full time and several volunteer projects, this blog has been put on the back burner.
 
Instead of promising a definite rate of posting to come, I’ll promise to post whenever I can, usually on mondays or thursdays.
 
I hope to get back to writing two or three posts per week, but that just isn’t realistic right now.
 
If you want to keep reading my posts, I suggest you start subscribing to my RSS feed, so that you’ll get a notice when I post.
