We had a nice daytrip to Mont St Michel yesterday. Tons of tourists and very crowded but we managed to find a secluded place for drinks amongst the crowds. Beautiful place, worth visiting.


hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure

We dropped by a Jack Kirby exhibition on our holiday. A happy little accident so to say. The exhibition had some great panels drawn by the King of Comics. If you are near Cherbourg in Normandy, France, check it out!

Current setup for feeding the bio-hardware on our holiday. Minimal yet good.

Get it here:

Hi everyone who remembered they have a Mastodon account now that Twitter is down.

@gvenk hahaha... ik kwam hier ook eens kijken voor het leedvermaak. Ramptoerisme :-)

I'm slowly migrating some content from Medium to my blog:



I really hope that doesn't kill my Google ranking because Google thinks I stole that content. But I unlisted the articles on Medium, so hopefully that helps.
