A new home

In 2016 I moved this blog from my own CMS over to WordPress. But seeing what a pain it actually is to keep it all updated, I decided to move to a static site generator.

Testing out silicone sponges

less than 1 minute read

I was reading some stories (don’t ask my where anymore – might have been on reddit or Lifehacker) about silicone sponges to replace (the often gross) disposable sponges we used in the kitchen. Sounded like a great idea – something that you don’t need to throw away, that doesn’t become a bacterial warzone, durable.. but after trying it out I’ll be going back to the disposables.

Why did you become a vegetarian?

2 minute read

“Why did you become a vegetarian?” – It’s one of those questions I get asked fairly frequently, when it comes to food choices / eating habits. I recently had the question again, at work – I’ve changed jobs recently, and it came up during a discussion. I guess it’s a good question, as not everyone has the same reasons.

A new home, a new look

less than 1 minute read

I finally decided to retire my custom-written CMS (wrote it back in 2003, when I had more free time), which – while obviously fantastic, super advanced, and capable of making coffee for you – had some drawbacks. Mostly being that it was a pain to use and update content with.

My pirate name is: Black Jack Flint Like anyone confronted with the harshness of robbery on the high seas, you can be pessimistic at times. Like the rock flint, you’re hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you’re easily chipped, and sparky. Arr! Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com. </div>

Being sick sucks!

Since last weekend I’ve been stuck with a nasty cold, reaching climax on wednesday when I bailed work at noon and went to the doctor. Sickleave until friday, and some painkiller (perdolan) and a coughsirup (mjummm.. not!)

Carnival in Aalst

1 minute read

Yay. Soon it’ll be Aalst Carnaval, a so-called cultural feast. I rather call it a drunkfest, since there’s actually very little culture and loads of drinking going on.

Fuckin’ NMBS

In june 2006 I switched from the cable provider Telenet (Expressnet) to the ADSL/hosting provider Schedom / Dommel (Netconnect). I can’t say I’ve been sorry.

Second Life

After all the hipe that’s being created around the virtual online game Second Life, I decided to give it a quick spin. Quick being very quick here, since after around 30 minutes I bailed out and deleted the game.

I sold it on eBay…

1 minute read

A while back (basically, in december) I decided to sell my Cisco Catalyst C2924-XL switch on eBay. Since I’ve done plenty of auctions before there, no problem! So, the item got sold to someone from the EasyHost company. Fine by me, I don’t really care who buys my stuff, as long as they follow up ;)

Well, what can I say? Best of wishes to everyone for 2005, and hopefully less violence/war/stupidity/suffering in the world.. Tho we really didn’t start of well, with the disaster that happened (and the medical disaster that’s starting to happen now) in the middle east with the Tsunami.. I hope that solutions are worked out quickly to make sure the needs get resolved…

Wondering…

less than 1 minute read

I’ve often wondered if there’s a point to so many things we do, we say, we see. More than once I’ve come to conclude that many things we do are just for the masses, for the appeasing of the public that surrounds us. Looks are everything, who gives a flying fuck about the person underneath these days?
