New MSN

So I thought I'd update my MSN Passport with my new email address. Well it worked except it seem that none of my MSN contacts work anymore. Feel free to re-add me as jcapka@xcomplica.remove.com

I should have remembered that Nick tried the same thing and told me it sucked. Sorry folks.

Company website

So I finally finished the first version of my company web site. It's nothing too stellar, but it's up there. I learned quite a bit about ASP.NET 2.0 and CSS while building the site. Too bad almost none of the ASP.NET 2.0 features made it into the final version. :-) I realized that web parts were probably overkill for what I needed to do, and since I only have one employee (me) at this time I don't expect the login feature to be too useful.

So go and have a look at www.xcomplica.com and let me know what you think!

Working in Amsterdam

So I'm starting a 2 month contract in Amsterdam tomorrow. Should be interesting. The company has issues with MCMS and from the very informal interview I had with them, I think I'll be able to help them out quite a bit. They wanted me to sign up for as long as possible, but to their surprise I am not willing to do long term projects at this point. I need to get a good network of clients and I can't do that working for one place for 8 months. Most people I talk to are surprised that I don't want the job stability, but if I wanted a well paid stable job I would have stayed at Infusion.

Another year older

Thanks to all those that remembered my b-day. 27 - I'm getting old. I didn't even really celebrate this one, I had a few drinks with my bro and a friend of mine on Saturday but it's not quite the keg party that I've done in the past. I guess that's all part of growing older and I'll have to deal with it.... FUCK THAT! I'll write this b-day off as a loss due to the recent move across the ocean, and next year it best be back to the usual party ritual. Look out for 28...
