Just moved the website again. This time it's not a physical move of the server, but to another server altogether. It should have a bit of better performance than the old one.
If you happen to find any bugs because of this move, please let me know.
Enlisted myself for a evening course of French. Since the latter is horrible, it is a very good idea, no?
Anyway, for those that are interested, can check out the website of the organizing party:
The website is in Dutch, but they also teach that, so it should not be a problem at all.
Time for a new experience, and a new hobby in my life.
Thanks to Bart (aka: my boss), who took me and a collegue of mine for a figurative spin around the block: in the form of gliding...
Next thing I know, I was signing myself up at Albatros Zweefvliegclub (note: website in dutch) at Hasselt (Kiewit), and already have had two lessons.
Those that care may keep their fingers crossed each time I'm in the air (usually on saturdays), and pray that I don't drill the glider down into the ground... ;-)
Found this article to be so true...
The move is as good as completed. I still have to clean up several stuff and such, and there are still some things that have to be moved out (like my father's encyclopedia).
The moving chapter is pretty much finished, well, accept the clean up of course. I'll post a picture as soon as I get there.
Some more intermediate shots of my own move...
More photos will be found in the gallery (if it ever gets finished, that is).
My brother Kurt moved out this weekend. His house is finally finished, or at least, just up to the point it is liveable.
Since we shared a room, you can believe I'm happy to finally have the Kingdom for myself. The reconstruction (so to speak) has already begun...
Attached are the very first photo's, in the very early stage of the reconstruction.
This part pretty much shows my soon-to-be-my bed. Most of the old cupboards and closets have already been thrown out; you can see the markings on the walls and such.
Server will be down again this weekend on account of a new kernel and the addition of extra RAM.
It will be but a few days before I have both my eyes lasered. Glasses, fare thee well...
The actual operation will be on Thu March 22nd (that's only a few days away), with a checkup the day after (Fri that is). As a result, I still have the weekend to adjust to the new situation; after the weekend, I'm thrown back into the life of work and more work.
The procedure itself is called Lasik (short for LAser In SItu Keratomileusis). More information can be found on the internet or on this site (in Dutch though): http://www.olc.be/.
Because of relocation of my webhosting to another server housing, this site (and others on that particular server) will be unavailable.
The relocation is planned on Thu 15th February around 4am. Expected downtime should be about 2 hours (depending on traffic ;-) ).
I said to post some more pictures about our christmas tree, and with presents, so here they are...
A picture of the presents, taken at christmas morning (well, if you can still call 1pm morning).
And of course, after the wonderful meal (I have photos of that as well, but don't want to bore you), the long awaited unwrapping of the presents: happiness all around!
And finally, once again to you all: happy holidays!
Happy new year to you all!!
Christmas in coming up...
Time to set up the tree, and get presents under it...
Here are some pics of this year's tree...
At the moment it's still missing presents.
The pics look a little dark. It's because I took them without flash, which gives it a much better effect, and bring out the little lights a bit more.
Later on, I'll make some more, with flash (and hopefully with some presents under it ;) ).
