I'm really happy with Visual Studio 2012, and I do think it's by far the biggest leap forward for any iteration of VS. However, one new feature that bugs me is the "Auto Preview" where any file I click on in the Solution Explorer is opened for me in a special preview tab.
This can be prevente... [More]

So it’s been a week since I got back from GOTO in Aarhus. All in all I must say that the conference lived up to my expectations.

I always find it hard to create a schedule before going to a conference. And especially one with as many amazing talks as this year's GOTO. However to give myself just a little of a head start, I created a preliminary draft of a schedule a couple of weeks ago.
I do know for a fact that t... [More]

Up until a couple of years ago, I was an active photographer. I have done everything from fashion, modelling and wedding photography to concerts, shows and events. I carried my camera pretty much everywhere and have taken tens of thousands of shots in my lifetime. But then I kind of lost interest. I... [More]

I've been invited to participate as a blogger at the GOTO Conference in Aarhus this October. Yay, that means more activity on this blog in the coming weeks/months!
Since I will be there "as a blogger", my main task will of course be to blog about the conference and about topics ... [More]

All good things, as they say, come to an end. This unfortunately also includes my free SVN hosting service, svn.graffen.dk, that has been running almost non-stop since some time in 2006.
I started svn.graffen.dk as a free hosting service, mostly because no others really existed at the time,... [More]
