I recently discovered a really nice feature where trying to connect to a new server using ssh/scp will display a GTK+ popup, asking you to confirm the identity if there’s no stdin (for example, when running ssh/scp as part of a custom command in MonoDevelop).

Features like these make me really happy, because it means that someone actually thought this through. So I answered the question (only 2 answers are valid), and couldn’t help but smile at what I saw.
SSH secret answer

No one will ever guess which answer I picked!

Last year blog recap

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Let’s see… Birthday. Spam complaint. That’s it.

Two short blog posts in one whole year, that’s just pathetic… Turns out I’m a clogger. I’ll try to make better use of my blog this year though ;)

But don’t hold your breath just yet…

Dear Mr. Google

I know you’re reading my mail, and that’s fine. So you’re probably also aware that the only types of email I read are either written in English or Dutch. The reason for this, is that it’s the only two languages I master. This means that all email written in any other language can go directly into the spam folder. This would also eliminate the SPAM problem I’m having on gmail. Over 90% of it is written in some language I don’t understand. There’s a simple rule you can use to combat spam. If $(language of mail) != $(one of Richard’s spoken languages); Then get the fsck rid of it!

Especially CJK email… Puhlease…

Thank you!

Yours truly.

Happy Birthday to me!

So yeah, today is my 24th birthday :)

I’m not celebrating it in any fancy way, except for eating some cake with my parents & brothers and perhaps some relatives if they choose to show up ;)
