Hi, I’m back from Dublin. Here’s a picture of what we did:
I’m off too Dublin for a couple of days. Be back on the 25th. Ahoy mateys!
For the last year and a half, I’ve been terrorized by mosquitos. At night they even had to queue up and draw a number before they got a chance to drain my blood. I’ve tried everything to get rid of them, all to no avail. I kept the windows closed, burnt essence, air-tightly closed off […]
“This will be the year of Linux on the desktop!“. This has been the topic of tech-predicting articles on the web since at least 2001. It’s been repeated (and proved wrong) so many times, it’s even become an Internet meme. But ladies and gentlemen, rejoice. For the year of Linux on the desktop has arrived! […]
I’m back from Lowlands 2007, and it was absolutely fantastic; like always.

Refined sugar is the sugar you buy in bags to put in your coffee, tea or whatever. It’s bad for your teeth and bad for your body. Sugar breaks down vitamins and other stuff […]
During this Challenge of the Month: Don’t drink any coffee. I drink too much coffee. And I really mean too much. About twenty mugs a day during weekdays; five a day on the weekend. It’s an addiction, plain and simple. When I stop drinking coffee, I’ll get a headache for two days. Recent scientific research […]
When it comes to computers, I’m what I call a ‘tweaker’ (no relations to tweakers.net, thank you very much). I spend a lot of time getting my computer setup, my directory structure, my documentation, my configuration, my everything just right. This can often take up a lot of my time, but I think I more […]
