Long time no see

Backup to the cloud! With berries.

Off-site backups are always complicated. In my main development machine, I have an SSD with all the data, and the data is nightly copied to the RAID1 disks. That seams like a decent backup solution in the case of disk failure, but what if somebody steals my computer or the whole house burns to the […]


Moving from self-hosted Orchard to WordPress on Azure

Maybe you have noticed – and probably not – I’m moving my blog to another platform. I was using Orchard. It’s a nice piece of software, but I wanted to test Azure Web Sites with PHP and MySQL, so the WordPress seamed like the right choice. We’ll see :-) I’m still moving everything to the […]

Only three days after it’s first birthday (not the TwBirthday, the Twitter […]


Prepare for the summer!

Microsoft Croatia made a nice goodie for the summer – IE9 Sun Care, for surfers only. So, there is not much of a story behind this, I just wanted to put this photo on my blog. Yesterday on the Web User Group meeting we have given away 26 of those, so if you see someone […]


Aktivnosti na WinDaysima

[English summmary: overview of my activities on WinDays, the biggest Microsoft conference in Croatia] Sutra počinju WinDaysi, vjerojatno najveća domaća IT konferencija, poznata u narodu i kao “proljetni odmor”. Doduše, za ove WinDayse naradio sam se kao nikad prije, tako da sam taj “odmor” i zaslužio, iako ću se odmarati vjerojatno tek od srijede kad […]

How to pronounce my name?

Sorry about this, but since a lot of people have problem with this, I need to publish it somewhere, and personal blog seems like a logical choice. I’ll keep it short and simple.
