I just realized I never posted about the “life changing event” that occurred April 1st on this blog. To quickly recap: as of April 2014 I became CEO, Sole Proprietor and Sanitary Manager of Caelum, a software product company that produces Zed. The business model that I cooked up is experimental: everything is open source,Continue reading “On My Own”
About a week and a half ago, February 16th, Justyna and I got engaged! It happened in a hotel, just after sunset at the seaside, it was very romantic :) (Old picture, and I look a bit weird — but Justyna likes this picture) Because Justyna is Polish we will probably do two weddings. The civil wedding endContinue reading “Engaged!”
Last Saturday we went to Saturn, a huge electronics store in Rotterdam, to buy Justyna an iPod. Incidentally, this is the kind of shopping that I like, much better than acting as a clothes hanger for three hours in a row. She got an iPod nano 4GB with a “cute” pink leather “jacket”. Great.

Anybody seeing this as often as I do when going to Gmail? For the past week now I see this every so often. Kind of annoying, especially when there’s an email you want to read. The “basic HTML view” usually works though, but it’s not the same.
Only minutes after my post about some advantages I found about Linux over Mac I already started receiving comments that OS X does, in fact, have all the features I mentioned. In Finder, if you start typing a name, it will go to that file or folder (this, apparently, even works in iTunes — I was soContinue reading “Rectification: Forced Linux”
An hour ago I had to think of a poem I once read for my English studies. The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost. I don’t know why I had to think of that. Maybe it was because it was briefly cited in Dead Poets Society, which I saw again a few nights ago. ButContinue reading “One of Those Moments”
I’m not a gamer, not even close to it. But today and yesterday I have been playing Armagetron Advanced a lot. It’s a simple 3D open source game that runs on Windows, Linux and the Mac (yay!) based on the Tron movie. What I like about it that it’s live action and in essence veryContinue reading “Armagetron”
