December 31, 2015 So, 2015 is coming to a close. It has been an interesting year, to say the least.

The birth of Lucas this Februar has been a source of great joy, but it definitely has reduced the work on both this and my other sites to a minimum.

The terror around the world really bugged me. As one of those who try to promote knowledge and peaceful coexcistence across cultures, the political and religious nutjobs trying to keep the world ablaze really bothers me. War, terror and refugees are bad enough, but after that, the political opportunists steps in and feed the fires instead of handling the problems.

The political trend in Denmark the last 20-25 years or so, has been to cut funding for education and libraries, thus making my sites more and more necessary. Now the Danish libraries has started cutting down on the amount of books and shelves to make room for a cafe-like atmosphere and I'm thinking 'are they friggin' nuts?'. Libraries being nice and cozy places is fine, but their primary function is literature/information. Cutting down on the service that is their reason to exist, to make room for more people to sit on their candy asses and sip latte? Seriously?... what the hell are they thinking? Next thing will be the government having an excuse to close down libraries, because it is not the state's job to run a cafe. My work on my sites is done because I like doing it, and that is how it should be, but it is rather saddening to vitness how inept politicians and hate preachers, on both the political and religious scenes, turn the things I do into a necessity and not just an alternative to be used if you want to.

July 27, 2015: So, on February 10th Lucas Thume Pilgaard was born... and suddenly it was the end of July!

I have just finished converting the site to an adaptive design. The big thing these days is to have the site being readable on all platforms, as search and web browsing is shifting from PCs to tablets and smartphones. Changing all the pages is a royal pain, but I guess it has to be done. On the other hand, going through the code made me discover a few errors that had to be fixed, so some good has come out of the effort.
