I like my day job, but I would like it even more to not have (and need!) a day job, which is why I built payformystay.com, an index of job offers for people looking for temporary work abroad. We feature job offers in many countries. Whether you want to polish your Spanish by working in Costa Rica or working in Honduras, or whether you rather go grape picking in France, we may have wat you’re looking for.
UPM is a forest company. They have a website about forest life. Check it out; it's breathtakingly beautiful, its usage of Flash second to none.

Over the years, I've made a few half-hearted stabs at learning assembly language. In doing so I've discovered this great PC Assembly Language textbook by Paul Carter. Last October, Halfgaar and me took this free book as a starting point to rediscover the joy of programming.

Today, in the images-that-I-stumble-upon-somewhere category: an image of a very old homepage that I hosted at my ISP back in the day:

Wiebe's posting of the two-hundred-and-first post, made me think of this image of the front page I made a short while after the new design went life. The image clearly shows that we have a little competition thing going on in that we both seem to be pretty determined to have our face dominate the home-page. :-P

During the recent redesign of my blog, I decided that I wanted to have pretty pagination with numbers instead of the WordPress default Older/Newer Posts links. The plugin I decided to use was WP Page Numbers by Jens Törnell.

Often, I come across websites that have a beautiful design or even just interesting design elements. Instead of continuing to spread these URLs all over my $HOME and my (del.icio.us) bookmarks, I thought I'd start adding them here. Today, I want to start with an entry from ~/jot/exemplary-web-design.txt: Qt

For a while now, I've been following Crimson Dark, which is a very cool, grimy sci-fi web comic. David Simon, the writer and artist, created quite the cynical bunch of characters. I love it. The story and dialog are a compliment to my intelligence, the artwork is nice (and getting better with each new chapter). Pure procrastinator's poetry, that's what it is.

I'm scanning old Flor y Fauna news letters for my Dutch Hardwood Investment Wiki. I need to do this because most of these newsletters, although produced digitally, are available in the Sicirec archive only in paper form. The only graphical item these news-letters sport is a simple graphical header, so I want to convert the scans to text and put the text in a wiki article for each newsletter; I don't want to upload dozens of image-heavy PDFs just to show the original (crappy) layout.
