I hate email spam and not just receiving but sending it, especially if it involves my own mail server. I’ve noticed in the recent weeks, that the amount of mail log produced on my mail server is at an all time high. Upon investigation it showed these are the result of unsuccessful login attempts. So… Read More Automatic SMTP blacklisting
I have a confession to make. I don’t like what Oracle is doing with the IP they get their hands on. This is just one of those times when it’s easly shown why. FreeplaneGTD has gone over several stages in the past years. It started off as a spin-off of a long abandoned project, that… Read More FreeplaneGTD 3.0 – Back to school
I decided to pass my trusty old computer down to my son. Before doing so I decided it needs some cleaning up. It was mostly used for running in Linux in the past years, and Windows 10 was installed just in case.

I could not answer straight away, as I currently work in the bank sector and thus on the receiving end of… Read More PSD2 for insurance
After using my addon for a while, I’ve completely got fed up with the ugliness of the task list. The flying saucer library, I’ve used to display the list is great for simple HTML display. When you consider what the original list looked like it’s a great improvement. Unfortunately it was quite difficult to get… Read More FreeplaneGTD rebooted
