    Published on

    I've been working a lot on Apache Rave lately. Apache Rave is a new light-weight, open source portal that uses OpenSocial gadgets and W3C widgets to render content. You may have already used OpenSocial gadgets in iGoogle or Atlassian Jira wi...

  4. Google+ minus 1

    Published on

    A social network is like the new hip club in town. The innovators start a place that is hip, maybe a bit underground. They invite their friends who are not mainstream but know how to create a good atmosphere. Those early adopters invite their frie...

  5. Cleaning up the WYSIWYG HTML

    Published on

    My blog is built with Hippo CMS and the Hippo Site Toolkit. This means that I use the Xinha (Is Not HtmlArea) WYSIWYG editor to type the content of my blogposts. The Xinha editor does its job, but has its limitations. Editors may mess up the HTML ...

  6. GOTO Amsterdam — day 2

  9. San Francisco — Day one

    Published on

  10. Send email with iCalendar events from your website

    Published on

    Let’s say your website or intranet contains information about events, seminars or courses. Your visitors can view them and subscribe online to attend the events. Wouldn’t it be nice if they receive an email that contains all the event data in the ...

  11. Coffee gone, is that 404 or 410?

    Published on

    The Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (HTCPCP/1.0) is most known for its own status code 418 (I’m a teapot). For most other status codes the specification says that normal HTTP return codes are used to indicate difficulties of the HTCPCP server.

  12. It works on my machine — Maven site plugin

    Published on

    Today I had a very strange case with the Maven site plugin using Maven 2.2. The site and the reports built fine on my machine but failed on several other machines. One of these was the server that hosts the documentation so I had to fix it. It fai...
