I’m Pepijn de Vos, a web scripter/designer like person living in Holland.

I can of course do the general stuff like XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL but also SQLite and I have experience with working with jQuery and writing plugins and themes for WordPress.

The next step for me is to finally make my own website. I believe that for a client you should always use an open-source CMS with at least a medium size community, so they can ask for help and get updates there. But for my own website I want to make my own CMS. I don’t intend to share or publish it, because it would just be another tree in the dense CMS forest. However, if someone really wants to use it they can have it, if they promise to take care for themselves and don’t blame me or ask support.

Why re-invent the wheel? to make it rounder?
No, just to learn from it… And maybe a little ego is also involved 😉 But I want to know how something works before I start using it. I also don’t plan on using a framework, look at all those rails noobs, they only know how to do it, not why, and most of them don’t even know proper Ruby!

So my plan of action is: Learn Python, write a CMS, then learn a framework to make it easier to write a CMS, but then at least I know how python works and how a CMS works behind the scenes.

My website and CMS are also my end project for school. Not because I have to, but because I want to! For more information about my school visit aventurijn.org
I decided to keep this CMS project for later and make toverveer my end project.

    Hey Pepijn 🙂

    Do you know if it is or would be easily possible to operate an Ipod Touch using a BlueTooth mouse or preferebly Trackball.

    I have a disabled friend with limited hand movement and dexterity and this would allow them access to all the Ipod Touches fabulous features.

    Thanks mate

    please comment on an appropriate post next time and use Google some more.

    I remember a topic on the iPhone fan forums that it was not possible, which sounds plausible because you can’t run software in the background and bluetooth is really limited on the iPhone.
    The only possibility would be a jailbreaked iPhone 3.0, i’ve once seen a keyboard connected to an iPhone… someone might hack a Bluetooth mouse onto it maybe…

    I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone would grasp the mantle and begin assessing the concept of p2psn… I hope you’ll get some inspiration from the p2pfoundation as well as enjoy learning about message queuing with python – kind of helps that goog’s appengine runs python code 😉

    I’ll enjoy watching this develop and if you want to chat some time just drop me a note with your IM contacts.

    Meanwhile it’s kind of interesting that PirateBay shut down because they feel p2p is now mainstream as a data hive – i.e. the market opportunity for p2psn is massive.

    Best Regards,
