The search for a new watch

Three years ago I got a Casio WV-200E-1AVEF. It’s a good watch. I wear it everyday. What I specifically like about it is that it tells the EXACT time. You know, the thing watches are supposed to do. It does so because it is a radio-controlled watch. This means that everyday, the watch will sync up with a radio tower and get the exact time. If that fails you can still set… Read More »The search for a new watch

500 podcasts later

I keep track of the podcasts I listen to in a Google spreadsheet. This week I entered the 500th one. I started to keep track in november 2015, after a few months of listening. And I probably even forgot to add a few, but you get the picture: I love listening to podcasts! So, here are some stats: I have listened to 57 different podcasts for a total of 505… Read More »500 podcasts later

Thoughts about the Snapchat IPO👻

  • Tech

Last year I wrote about Snapchat and their unique approach to things. I’d like to think that my predictions at the end of that blog came true 😎. Why? Because we see Instagram betting big on streaming and disappearing video i.e. copying Snapchat features. If anything, it’s proof Snapchat is a force to be reckoned with. And they seem to be making Zuckerberg & co. nervous. So it’s not unexpected… Read More »Thoughts about the Snapchat IPO👻

Rising NBA stars

The 2016/2017 NBA season has been a lot of fun so far. Just like the previous season. All kinds of records are being broken. It seems the game is changing. Or maybe it’s because we just keep track of everything now. Either way it’s much more interesting to follow the NBA than it was a decade ago. We all know the global stars like Curry, Westbrook, Durant, LeBron and Harden. They’ve… Read More »Rising NBA stars

I still love RSS (you can too!)

RSS. It’s kind of a weird acronym and people can’t even seem to agree on the true meaning behind those three letters. It doesn’t sound too sexy, but it does sort of have a recognisable logo. If you have seen this logo before and wondered what it is, well, this post is for you! TL:DR: RSS is a specification that will allow you to keep track of all your favourite sites in… Read More »I still love RSS (you can too!)

My music discoveries of 2016

Last years’ post was pretty popular, so let’s continue this. You know the rules, so let’s go! I’ve always had a soft spot for Conor Oberst’s (aka Bright Eyes) fragility. After a rough period he dropped a new album, with pearls like this next one. Only 3,594 views so far, we should all be ashamed. To stay a bit with fragile singer/songwriters, this big man John Moreland will break your… Read More »My music discoveries of 2016

Let’s encrypt all the things!

You may notice something different on your favourite blog. Left of the URL in the address bar there is a little green lock! This means is now served to you via SSL/TLS. You know, https:// instead of http://. This means the connection, and therefore, traffic between you and the website is more secure, because it is encrypted. This was way overdue, even more so because it’s oh so easy now with Let’s Encrypt. Let’s… Read More »Let’s encrypt all the things!

My Chromebook Acer C730E-C480 review

  • Tech

Last week Google was kind enough to provide me a Chromebook. I had been eyeing one for some time, but I had no reason why I would need one. I have a laptop, smartphone and a tablet. So what would a Chromebook add? Well, now I know. TL;DR: I love the Chromebook! The good Reasons are actually pretty obvious. It is a laptop but it is light, small, cool, quiet and has… Read More »My Chromebook Acer C730E-C480 review
