Project 365

Posted by dblancquaert on 05/01/2010

I noticed on twitter that several people did a 365 project in 2009.

It seemed interesting to try it myself as well.

My reasons for doing it, are these:

  • I believe my life is rather dull. Being asked to make a new picture every day, will force me to look at my life from a different perspective (I hope).
  • Time goes fast, and a picture often says more than a lot of words. Let me keep more memories.
  • I have the tool (my new Nokia) to test and use!

My pictures are visible in the left sidebar, and here on Flickr.

Twitter Blocked

Posted by dblancquaert on 04/01/2010

Back @ work after the holidays, I open my Tweetdeck, and guess what… I cannot connect to my twitter account. Password is incorrect.

Yes, right. I changed the password during my holidays. So I enter my new password. Still no access.

Let’s try the website. I enter my login details, with the new password, and this page is displayed:

What is going on? Is my account hacked?

No. Turns out Tweetdeck tried to log in a few times with the wrong password. As a safety measure, my account was blocked for about an hour.
A few hours later, I could log in again. First on the website, and then with Tweetdeck (and changing my password).


At least I had a learning experience.
