GMail and IMAP: Trash Folder

Friday, December 21st, 2007

One thing was still wrong in my perfect Thunderbird/GMail setup: the Trash folder. The default location of the trash folder in Thunberbird is not the same as GMail’s. So, if you want things to work seamlessly, you also need to remap that one. For this one, there are no user-friendly settings you can tweak though. […]

GMail and IMAP: Sent and Drafts folders

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Today, I’ve switched my GMail access in Thunderbird from POP3 to IMAP. I didn’t do it earlier because I was too lazy I guess. But now I’m really pleased by the results, it works so much better than POP3. GMail and IMAP is just a perfect combination. I did change some of the default settings […]

bramzistor on deviantART

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

I have finally created an account on deviantART. Unfortunately, the username bramz was already taken by another Belgian Bram, though he’s not using it. Nevertheless, I had to choose another one and the outcome is bramzistor (short for bramzistor radio =). I hope using it for displaying some of my better (read: less sucking) photographs. […]

monitor calibration

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

When viewing my gallery from another PC, I noticed that the images showed a bit too dark, especially the black and white ones. This was of course due to a badly calibrated monitor. I started looking for some resources on monitor calibration, and this is what I came up with: black point The black point […]

first HDR photo editing experiment

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

My first experiment in HDR (High Dynamic Range) photo editing. I’m a bit reluctant to use the term HDR, because technically, none of the images were ever stored in a HDR file format. Unless you count Canon’s RAW CS2 format as HDR, which I don’t. Not really anyway. I also do not count the use […]

pyvtuneapi 0.1: VTune API for Python

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

pyvtuneapi is a very simple extension that binds the VTune API to Python. If you have VTune, and you’re using it to profile a Python driven application, you can use pyvtuneapi to pause and resume the analyzer.

does KB936357 patch kill VS2005? (probably KB928365 instead)

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

As you could read in my previous post, my devenv.exe stopped working since last Patch Tuesday updates. Since rebooting and even reinstalling the entire VS2005 suite didn’t resolve the problem, I’ve tried the only other approach I could think of apart from reformating my laptop: reverting the windows updates. I made an extra backup of […]

today, vs2005 died, badly!

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

Today, after a mandatory reboot because of a patch Tuesday windows update, devenv.exe of Visual Studio 2005 no longer wants to start. Well, it tries to start, and sometimes it gives a flash of its main window, but then it dies without a cry. The first thing one tries to resolve the problem is to […]

Le Tour de France in Ghent

Monday, July 9th, 2007

Today, the second ├ętape of the ever legendary Tour de France finished in Ghent, Belgium, the city where I work and live during the week. We got a day off for this event, so what else could I do than to go and watch the tour in real life? I positioned myself on the front […]
