So I've been dragging my feet for years but it finally happened today: I upgraded my blog in one major WordPress leap and refreshed its theme at the same time. Everything on it should now be slightly better-looking, better-working and work much better on smaller screens like mobile phones.
I'll probably continue to tweak the look and design a little bit more over the next few days to try out some alternative approaches.

I've been running a keylogger on my main Linux box for exactly one year now. The keylogger logs every key-press – its scan code together with a time stamp. This now allows me to do some analyses and statistics of what a year worth of using a keyboard means. This keyboard being logged is attached ...
