A friend of mine asked me how it is possible that she pushes buttons on her keyboard and mouse, and in an instant her peer reads the text she had in her mind. This is a step-by-step introduction of what happens in-between.

Do-Not-Track in IE10 vs. Apache

Apache developer decided not to accept Do-Not-Track headers from IE10 users, because it’s enabled by default. So… if I install a plugin that hides the fact from the web server that I’m using IE10, I become eligible of using it. But if I do this, I simply became eligible because I consciously installed that addon, so I could actually use it without hiding the fact. Sorry if I’m a bit Philosoraptorish…

A friend of mine asked me today how to become a web developer. It took me a while, but I made up a checklist. It’s short, but it’s enough for the first steps.

Gergely Polonkai is a systems engineer of a telco company, and also a freelancer self- and software developer.

He is learning about different IT subjects since the late 1990s. These include web development, application building, systems engineering, IT security and many others. He also dug his nose deeply into free software, dealing with different types of Linux and its applications, while also writing and contributing to some open source projects.

On this site he is writing posts about different stuff he faces during work (oh my, yet another IT solutions blog), hoping they can help others with their job, or just to get along with their brand new netbook that shipped with Linux.
