WOW, really… WOW! It has been 10 years since I started my blog…! And here we are… more than 500 posts later. With more than 300 comments being posted. At the moment this blog has about 7000 visitors per month. My head still cannot fanthom this.
When I first started it was a kind of attempt to document things I discovered. As someone who has been an active member of the OSS community, I’ve always seen given back to the community as a task of everyone. I often joke that my job is “google premium”. Though when looking at ourselves, we must admit that a big chunk of our job relies on finding the right information. Therefore I always publish my findings online, in the hope that it might help someone else out there. That way we can keep evolving at a great pace. 🙂
Anyhow, as closing thought of today ;
Thanks to every single visitor out there!
After having hosted my own blog myself since the beginning, I’ve decided to move to WordPress.com. It might look like an odd choice to make, yet this leaves me without the worries of maintaining (upgrades/upgrades/security/…) of my own.
The last theme was getting a bit old. So the time was right to update it! Most of you have probably already noticed it, so this is merely a shoutout to the RSS-only readers! 😉
About a month ago I started my own webdesign agency. So after almost 2 years of kvaes.be I’ve took the step towards entrepreneurship!
We focus on the “local” market, providing quality websites at an affordable price. It’s not “yet another high priced” bureau… The OpenSource world provides the means which enables us to provide a very interesting price.
Today I stumbled upon an article mentioning the existence of BitNami. It was an unknown product to me, but I think it has some potential. Imagine the power of Lampp combined with your favorite cms/wiki/…

Bitnami Stacks won’t interfere with any software already installed on your system.

This version contains a bugfix and the new “PostOnly”-feature. By selecting this feature, you won’t be pestered by non-posts in your listing. Examples here are the “Flavicon” & the “Homepage”.
Have fun with the release. Suggestions are always welcome!
There is a new version available of the “OWA Most Popular”-plugin. The big change is that it’s now possible to configure a certain date range for the most popular posts.
