Chilling in Caen near the merry-go-round. Son is having fun on it, daughter and wife are shopping for shopping-things. I'm just happy to be in a vibrant town again. It occurred to me our family feels more and more at home in a town instead of small villages. This will definitely impact future holiday plans!
A lazy day off with the family. After the funeral of my mother-in-law yesterday and all the arrangements that come with it we had to make last week, we really needed some downtime.
No walk in the woods, no beach, no sun in the park. Just the four of us at home, chilling in a hammock, finishing a jigsaw puzzle, reading and just be together. We really needed it. And it feels good.
Yesterday I rediscovered an old gem from my arcade past. Amidar, an arcade game published in 1981. You play as an ape or as a paint roller (yeah I know) Its basic format is similar to that of Pac-Man. Clear the board by collecting all the coconuts, or painting all surrounding edges. Such simple gameplay yet so much fun. Even 38 years later. To play Amidar on OpenEMU, you can find some ROM images of the game in various online places... #arcade #retrogames #coinop
Re-reading Kevin Kelly’s book The Inevitable and wondering how he would think about these new movements towards decentralization and distribution on the edges. https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/b7fJmQn7Cuc3gbXM9x8
Change takes time.
A year ago I was a couchpotato. Something had to change. I started running and today I ran the Singelloop in Utrecht. In a PR for me of 61:14 (official, my app said 61:30). This feels so good, even though I don’t like running with an audience. Now, let’s have a beer. https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/npwV3mLz8X4Mqi0DiU8 https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/lERnLctFzbtwfKMmqhQ https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/k3fhHVoxULYA7HGgp7U
Our 1 day company retreat is at a nice hotel in Amsterdam called De Hallen. Worth visiting and looking around! https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/dtOKe791E9ihywegpA4 https://me.frankmeeuwsen.xyz/media/9f86G0S8s5s1MevCnzA
Every now and again I have this problem on my Mastohost hosted instance. Nothing loads and UI get the same error message for a while. Does anyone know what is up here? What helps is going to settings and back and everything works. That kinda feels like a Windows 95 solution... /cc @mastohost #mastoproblems #BreakingTheFediverse
I am ready for the Singelloop next week here in Utrecht. Last year I was a spectator at the finishline. I had just started running myself and I made a promise I would run the 5 km this year. It turns out I can run 10 km now. It's something I still can't believe when I look back how I started a year ago.
Yes, I am proud of myself. It's not something I say a lot but this time I really accomplished something for myself. 💪

This is an instance-of-1 for Frank. Let's see how this works...
