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.
I wanted to convert an Flash Video (flv) file from YouTube to MP3. The first tip I found essentially streamed the original file into a different file:

I have been wanting to protect a certain page on my Dutch 15Monkeys wiki for weeks. I could install the ReCaptcha extension already (the best Captcha there is), but it's just that one page that's being spammed. So far, I've been unsuccessful in regaining my Sysop right for that wiki. I need these rights if I'm going to protect these pages.

Earlier today, I wanted to download all songs by this totally kick-ass rap outfit:

Wiebe uses his author Atom feed to generate a list of his blog posts here on his own website. WordPress feeds only display the latest 10 entries. He has written 16 so far. What he needs is a feed with all his entries.

Ok, so according to the family doctor it was never a fungal infection (which a jock itch is), but really eczema. Nobody knows what that is. Whatever. I'm not a doctor. It itches and it affects my cock, so I am just going to refer to it as my cock itch.

Wiebe reminded me by mail to send him a Windows executable. I use Gmail. Gmail doesn't allow me to send archives containing .exe files. Something to do with viruses on Windows. Wiebe doesn't use Windows. He uses Wine. I just want to send the damn executable.

I really, really liked the new style of administration panel that was introduced in WordPress 2.5. In all the time since I've upgraded (and increasingly with every update), I've started to like it more and more. I hadn't thought it possible but everything just felt at exactly the right place, while before 2.5, the whole always felt like it had been thrown together by a blind child. Had I written it myself, it would have at least felt as being thrown together by an adult (chimpanzee).

During the first gentoo update session for this machine, I didn't get very far. I already mentioned the problem I had with e2fsprogs, but this was not the first or the last problem that I had.

During my recent Gentoo update session, I was once again confronted with the inconvenience of not having my /etc/ directory under version management. This time, I thought I had the ideal SCM for this job: Git.
