Update time, in no particular order:
After a year I quit my job
. I got fed up with the 4 hours a day commute, and decided to take my chance and try to be a fulltime panorama photographer -dash- mad scientist. I thought I'ld have lots of time on my hands now, to do all that I have been wanting to do
for so long but couldn't. Alas, I am still too busy to do it all. Dang.
As an aside, as far as I know, Avinity
is still an interactiondesigner short
, so if you're a designer with aspirations to influence how people spend a considerable part of their day, give them a lookover. They're a great team to work with.
Since my Eolas hack
(wow, it's just a silly hack!), hoeben.net jumped from ~400 visitors to around 1500 visits daily. Amazing.
Hoeben.net is yet on another server
, at another host.
I'm pretty impressed by the connection speed/cost ratio at Dreamhost
. They host fieldOfView.com
, and now they also host Hoeben.net
. We'll see how they like the bandwidth hungry experiment I'm launching later this week ;-)
I turned trackbacks back on
, tollerated them for a while, and turned them back off again.
In the ~9 months they were enabled, hoeben.net attracted around 53.000 spam trackbacks, and 3 real trackbacks. Most of the spam was detected as such, but honestly, who thought of the mechanism and didn't realise the spam-danger? Oh well, they looked crap anyway...
