Mobil-app: Kjøreplan for barnevakt

Du skal ha barnevakt til barnet ditt, og står der rett før og tenker: Hva må jeg sende med av mat, klær, bleier, leker og andre greier? I tillegg må du lage en liten kjøreplan/oppskrift for den/de som skal barnevakt. Det er like klønete hver gang, og alltid noe jeg glemmer å ta med, enten av mat, klær, bleier, ting eller i kjøreplanen.

World's smallest Content Management System

Ok, lets not argue, I guess you can always find a smaller one written in Perl or something, so let me rephrase to “a really small and simple CMS”.

A year ago I needed a CMS. My challenge was an easy and small one, and I wanted to keep the solution easy and small. I was running a phpBB-forum and wanted a simple way to make a list of featured forum-posts. Each item in the list of featured posts should contain a title, a photo and a link the forum-post in mind. I also liked to keep the hardware requirements at a minimum and have as little maintenance as possible.

Google Docs to the rescue! Read more

It’s really simple. The whole idea is to only show you messages written in a language you are able to read. If you simply define which languages you can read, and which you can write, it’s not hard to match.
