Vreemd. Iemand op de wereld gebruikt een mailadres op mijn domein bij een Microsoftdienst. Maar ik kan het wachtwoord en het account op geen manier overnemen...

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!

Oh yeah... I just figured out my Pixelfed account is federated. So you can follow my photofeed (although inactive at most) here as well. It is on @frank. I might even post some more pics here to show here. Just because hey internet rules!

Another nice run this morning. From our campsite to Utah Beach, one of the landingsites during D-Day. This area is filled with remnants and memories of this amazing military operation, 75 years ago. From tombstones to abandoned bunkers and commemorative plaques along the road.

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.


literally Art Spiegelman, author of Maus, was writing an intro to a Marvel collection but pulled it after he was told he couldn't criticize Trump

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!

A few days ago I saw that had joined Telegram, and now I know a bit about why:

A worthwhile read on what thinks are like in Hong Kong right now.

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

Three people worth following and interacting with on any Mastodon instance are...

Thanks for helping me grow my world here.

Good deed for the weekend:

Just released mastotool v0.1, a (growing) collection of tools to access the Mastodon API from the terminal.

Generates lovely statistics for your account and lets you search your toots for keywords, so far.

Get it here:

(On Arch you can simply install package 'mastotool')
