Sharing is caring: Websites that inspire us to contribute

There are days when I feel like the Internet is fucking me sideways. Working in IT gives me a special opportunity to be bombarded with the most retarded information available (anything from funny kittens to conspiracy fear-mongering). Add to this all the commercial stuff I have to actively ignore during my surfing and it’s no wonder that my shock tolerance has grown unusually high. Ultimately, most days I feel like this guy.

But then there are days that don’t just simply make me go ”heh” in-between my excessive scrolling, but stops me in my tracks and evokes hope for humanity.

(The pain of) managing content in Confluence

Creating content in Confluence is easy and fun. It’s not perfect – in fact even content creation in Confluence still has a long way to go, but compared to the competition the tools are excellent and the important thing is: it just works.

El Naturalista’s Nido shoes

Thank heavens the neon 90’s are now history and I can make a review of these shoes instead of the cap.

Own a computer and save money for traveling

There is a high probability that my computer is the sole reason I have been able to save anything for our RTW 2012. It is hands down the cheapest hobby available (except maybe walking). So I thought it would be a fun to go through all the myriad of ways my computer is distracting me from spending money and giving me value to spend.

Our first ultra light gear list

It has been apparent that for the last 4 months I have developed a serious gear-a-holic-problem. I think this might be a general flaw (or a blessing depending of the view point) in my nature that tends to show it’s eager head time to time. If there is a thing that I get excited about I leave no stone unturned when doing all the necessary research about it. Jatka lukemista »
