OS X: an unfinished bussines

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something larger than a tweet. A lot has changed since…

So I’ve got a Mac – after 18 years of PC I’ve finally returned to the wonderful world of Apple – It has changed a lot since the last time I was there (it was Mac OS 7 & 8 back then). It’s changed to something really good – and I can agree with everyone who has switched to OS X, that it just works. All the preinstalled apps, like iMovie, Pages, Mail and Maps – they are a great set of products made to be useful from the very first boot.

I’m writing my own OS, intermission (updated)

Holly jumping Jesus … I just got my 15 minutes of shame/fame over the internet. I linked my “just write down what you’re thinking” blog post on dzone.com and somehow it got posted on Hacker News and from there … Shit just hit the fan. It seems that writing “I’m writing my own OS” as a blog title can be translated from “I have spare time, I want to try out new things” into “Fuck this shit, I’m going for a revolution!!!” 🙂 It’s time consuming to answer all the comments I’ve gained, so I’m writing this post as an answer to all of you.

In the shade of impulsive development

Sorry, I haven’t managed to write the third part of my “Every developers dream” series, because as it is with everything in my life, there comes time when you just do not have enough batteries left to do something. And that is what I’d like to discuss now.

Hello world!

NO, this is not a default blog post by wordpress engine. 🙂 This is me, speaking here.

NO, this is not a default blog post by wordpress engine. 🙂 This is me, speaking here. So anyways I’ve finally decided to switch my blogging language to English, as I have a lot to talk about web/software development and music production to a broader audience. My old blog can still be found here, but the future of ORB is getting shady, so I decided to switch to WP.

So, who am I? My name is Gusts, I live in Latvia and I’m currently (on 28th of October, 2010) 27 years old web developer and musician. I currently play in two bands: Riga Metro & Bottleyed. I am also a part owner of a web development company in Latvia, where I work as a head of IT departament. My knowledge in development languages are mostly centered around web, so I spend most of my days in the world of PHP, JavaScript (I love jQuery) and a little bit of HTML, CSS and ActionScript 3.0. I’ve done some hobby software development and wrapped my head arround languages like C, C++, C# and Java.

I think this will be enough for today.
