Sweet Doughnuts has a new home! This blog along with all the other sites and services that I host on this server are now on a new server. More memory, more disk space, more speed, latest version of everything and Windows Server 2012. Between that and my new exceptional BlackBerry Q10, you could say that my life is pretty much complete (that + my wife & my 2 girls of course). If you’re searching for a hosting company, I recommend Soft Layer: great price and great service.

I’m on Reddit!

Today is Reddit AMA day.
Ask my anything today on Reddit.

AMA on Reddit, March 15th

Microsoft recently announced that they’re about to pull the plug on Windows Live Messenger, formerly known as MSN Messenger. After maintaining this software for almost 14 years, it’s safe to say Microsoft can call it a success. Even if nowadays, most people use other forms of communication, “MSN” will be remembered by many as the cornerstone of our early internet social life.


To celebrate this day and at the request of several old time users/friends, I’ll be hosting an AMA on Reddit on March 15th 2013, starting at 11am (Eastern Time). I’ll be happy to answer your questions about my previous involvement with Messenger Plus! as well as about anything else you want to talk about (recent projects, fast diaper changing, etc…). Until then, enjoy your very last chat sessions on Messenger :-).

C’est la vie

J’écoute un CD symphonique des musiques de Zelda et je me rend compte, en l’écoutant, que la musique me rend extrèmement nostalgique, voir triste. Je pense qu’en vieillissant, je me rend compte a quel point j’étais dans ma bulle, entouré d’amis incroyables et d’une famille toujours motivante. Dans mon monde, je me pensai vraiment héro d’Hyrule, pourfendant les monstres et sauvant toujours la princesse, acclamé par le village à mon retour.

C’est seulement avec beaucoup de recul et en cherchant pourquoi j’avais eu autant de chance dans ma vie que tout ceci est devenu clair. Aidez les gens qui vous entourent quand vous en avez l’occasion, et ne cherchez pas le mal ou il n’y en a pas. C’est une des rares choses que je compte vraiment inculquer a mes merveilleuses petites filles. Maintenant que je suis fiancé avec ma propre princesse, avec deux succésseurs au royaume, il ne me reste plus qu’a trouver le temps de revivre la gloire passée, reprendre mon épé, et repartir a la conquête des plaines d’un monde lointain. Plus qu’a attendre qu’un papillon se pointe a me fenêtre.

Merci a tous d’avoir fait de ma vie ce qu’elle est aujourd’hui.

New baby girl

My lack of recent updates has been caused by two things: first, I’m spending a lot of my time on my personal home automation project, which is finally producing nice results. Secondly, I’ve had the pleasure to welcome my second baby girl into this world, here she is on a recent photo. Next step: updating Media Center Themer!
