    • 2 Comments
    Well, I'm back. Yes, I feel terrible that it's been what 18 months since I last posted here. All I can say is that I'm going to try to do better. Somehow in the daily crush of emergencies I just never seem to find the time to sit down and write something...

    Using Note flags in Onenote

    • 0 Comments

    • 0 Comments
    Tehdessäni Vista-kehittäjäpäivän materiaalia tuli puheeksi tietotekniikkatermien suomentaminen. Lähtökohtaisesti teen materiaalit suomeksi, mutta koska (puoli)valmiit materiaalit ovat englanniksi, tulee eteen varsinkin käsitteiden suomentamisen vaikeus...
