Flickr search plugin for Firefox

The productive Christian Heindel, who created the Plazes .NET launcher has done it again. A Firefox search plugin for public Flickr tags. That means that what I wanted to do before is now very, very easy. And the search for [freeform](http://flickr.com/photos/tags/freeform/) works like it should. [Roleplaying](http://flickr.com/photos/tags/roleplaying/) yields the same Stockholm pictures, now in more traditional […]

Runestone – Game Development

Ã…rhus-based game developer [Runestone](http://www.runestone.dk/index.php?page=2) is an interesting case of *our guys* using their resources and aiming for the sky.

Skype, friends

Just came back from a conference in Norway. Cold, friends. But very sunny and friendly. Met up with millions of good poeple again, and now we all need Skype, the free (as in beer) phone solution for us who have a computer and a headset.
