Build a business case: developing custom apps

We hadn't previously heard of Docktor Nårton, so we're deeply grateful to Register regular Eric the Troll for drawing this skilled hardware technician to our attention. As yet the Doctor's site doesn't have a great deal of information on it, but it goes into commendable detail in describing its projects so far, and if anything, we feel it all being in Swedish adds to the overall clarity.

In one project the Doctor tackles hard disk defragmentation with the aid of a screwdriver, a toothbrush and some household cleaning fluid, while his use of an angle grinder and insulating tape to upgrade a graphics card is a neat tip. No more fiddling with tricky little screws round the back of the case.

We're not quite sure how the next project, apparently still in progress,* will develop. The Doctor appears to be upgrading a Compaq server and, tantalisingly, has got as far as measuring up the case with a menacing-looking saw blade. Register hardware site of the week, without question. ®

* Our astonishingly large number of Swedish-speaking readers corrects us on this one. To quote the one who actually used Swedish in his email, Nick Thomson, "If you click on the 'Vi sparar utrymmen!' links at the top of that page you will see the various stages of this 'project'." Sorted. Please stop telling us this now, people, OK? We've got 30 already...
