geek technique is now officially a business!

Well, people who watch my flickr already saw I visited the Chamber of Commerce last friday

...but I forgot some paperwork and had to come back today. But… it’s final now, the ink on the paper is dry… geek technique now officially is a business!

Now of course, this doesn’t say a thing on it’s own. It’s just something I wanted to do for a long time, but I also wanted to make sure this made sense. Until now I could very well do my business without a registration, just as a private person, but time has come this makes sense for Dutch taxes and such. So, a business it is!

About the type of business, translated literally, it’s a one-man-business and I guess that’s a perfect fit, because geek technique has been a one-man operation from day one.

As far as this site is concerned, nothing much will change I guess. This is just some paperwork to be able to continue what I love doing most and that’s everything you can see on this site. *^_^*

    Is dit wel een slimme post?
    Je zet zo wel indirect je adres online…

  2. markie @ 27 March 2007, 13:27 :

    Dat heb ik inderdaad wel bedacht voor ik het poste, maar wat zou het gevaar zijn? Inbraakgevaar? Ik denk dat ze meer hebben aan courantere spullen bij zo ongeveer iedereen behalve mijzelf. Zo ongeveer alles wat ik heb, is op straat geen drol waard. Ik zie een gemiddelde junk nog niet met unix-ijzer over straat slepen…

    Daarnaast, enige manier om het te voorkomen was een postbus geweest. Ik ken alleen iets teveel gevallen van startende ondernemers die al dat soort details tot in de puntjes regelden… voor er ook maar 1 cent omzet was en waar verder ook niks uitkwam.

    M.a.w. ik geloof het wel.

    Ik zou me daar ook niet al te druk over maken. Met wat zoekwerk op je site, kun je toch al redelijk in de buurt komen van waar je woont. Ik meen ergens ooit eens een google maps linkje gezien te hebben hier, dus dan zou de straat al geen probleem meer zijn.

    Of je lokt gewoon Bates met een blik kattenvoer, en volgt hem naar huis (optie 2).

    Even tussendoor zou je de .nl-versie van je domein ook niet snaggen?

  5. robert @ 28 March 2007, 02:54 :

    Hmm ja, ik zat ook niet direct aan inbraak te denken maar aan dat vervelende gastje (ben zijn naam ff kwijt en ik ben te lui om het op te zoeken :)) waar je een tijdje geleden last van had. Maar iig goed dat je er wel aan hebt gedacht.
    Verder: Keep up the good work! en succes!

    >aan dat vervelende gastje

    hahaha, ja, die laat z’n proza nog wel ‘ns achter… Misschien is het probleem het snelst opgelost als hij me inderdaad op zoekt, dan krijgt ie in vliegende vaart een stuk unix-ijzer van me cadeau .. ^_^

    btw, let's keep this all dutch thread on this site a rare one, shall we? :-)

  10. markie @ 1 April 2007, 12:16 :

    >have a nice day idiots

    well thank you! I’m pretty sure my day will be a lot nicer than yours…

    >thanks for deleting my comment again

    Well, if, for a change, you’ve got something useful to say instead of your usual negative crap rants, I’d say, take it away and give it all you got! I know you can do it, a normal comment in understandable english where, for once, you’re gonna try to prove a point with arguments and such.

    But if that’s too farfledged for you and you keep on ranting like a little child who can’t come up with any normal conversation and instead tries to impress with cursing and threatening (which is really laughable and takes all the value out of whatever it is you try to say to me for quite a while already), yes, there are chances I keep removing your comments. So, it’s up to you. Give it all you got! If you don’t like it, go complain to your momma.

    Happy April Fools day! (seems fitting somehow ;-))

  11. Ceristimo @ 2 April 2007, 12:44 :

    Well, nobody is forcing anything, you dumbwit. Besides, you’re only talking shit, regarless whether you understand what we’re saying or not. You’re not listening to what anyone is saying, because you’re trying so hard to overshout yourself with your meaningless threats. In case you haven’t noticed: Nobody is taking offence (that should be a bummer for you) and everybody’s just laughing at your stupid behaviour.
    So do yourself and everybody here a favor, and get a life.
    Achterlijke idioot.

  12. AIR @ 3 April 2007, 05:21 :

    u dumb fucking gronk ass lil bitches i cant get a life in a shithole country like mine so fuck urself bitch but I feel myself pretty good on the net. And I feeling pleasant to comment to pathetic pages like urs.

  13. Ceristimo @ 3 April 2007, 11:12 :

    “Air”. Funny nickname. Probably one of the things you didn’t got during birth…

  14. Pete @ 4 April 2007, 19:26 :

    And why is anyone paying this child AiR any attention?

  15. triobot @ 6 April 2007, 15:49 :

    Congrats mark… You are an absolute genius… I total support all your work…

  16. Erudite @ 23 April 2007, 17:07 :

    Oooh, Air sounds sexy! Think he’d be up for a little man to man quality time? I guess my bisexuality makes me half a faggot, as you put it, yes. Also, I’m not a jew, I’m an autokemetic, and if you’re going to attack a religion, at least attack one that did something to you first.

    Damn JW pamphlets. I’m a sin against god! And they want me to JOIN them?!
