Happy birthday to my dad!
Thanks to the nice folks at Casema I've just had to reset all my television settings. They've changed all the frequenties and added a few (like Animal Planet, BBC World and The Box). Which is nice, but it sucks big time that all stations have changed. Oh, and the radio to. Nice. Just what I was looking forward to.
Today is finally the moment of truth. I'm trying to make a CSS version of my current lay-out. But I'm lost. I want it to work in both IE and Mozilla. But it doesn't. Maybe a little break will help. Sigh. And to make things even worse, my Hellacopters cd of High Visibility keeps skipping beats. Very annoying. I did get a fresh new haircut earlier today and I've read the new Aardschok whilst sitting in the spring sunshine. I love winter, but spring has some nice qualities also.
I really like the new Placebo album, Sleeping With Ghosts. Especially the Boney M cover, Daddy Cool. Who would have thought.
Spend the day shopping in Amsterdam with my mom. Bought Katatonia's Golden Dawn at Boudisque. Also, a black shoulderbag at the Albert Cuyp market, a Motörhead t-shirt at the Waterlooplein and a beautiful pair of silver earrings at Chimera. All in all, a great day.
Meanwhile, this is to weird for words.
My school has been renamed. Very weird. Almost like it never existed. It was the School for Communicationsystems (SvC) and it's now called the Academy for Digital Communication (ADC). I just got back from Utrecht, because my brother got his diploma. Hurah! Weird to be back. I feel old.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is very cool. Installed it this afternoon. Think I'm addicted all over again. Finished Dune earlier today. Watched Solaris, which I really liked. Started on Dune Messiah, part two of the series. All in all a very quiet Sunday. By the way, it's nice to see my comments system is seeing some action. Thanks everybody. Oh, and Dr. Strangeblix is cool.
Happy birthday to me!
We had a small presentation a few weeks ago about pension plans. I didn't get round to reading the material untill just now. My retirement date has been set to March 1st 2044. Scary. I'm turning 24 this friday. I don't want to be thinking about stuff like this. Sigh. Just got back from the hospital. Had two birthmarks removed from my face. Though it didn't hurt as much as I'd expected, it still was pretty far from a picknick. But atleast it's behind me now. I'd been on a waiting list since December last year.
I spend a while playing the original Duke Nukem today. Wonderful nostalgia. Not much else going on. In case you're wondering, I did not watch the Idols finale last night. The horror. I caught a preview of the movie Large. Among my list is The Provenance. Look forward to receiving that. I also finished Bernard Cornwell's
I just found something called MACCAWS, which stands for Making A Commercial Case for Adopting Web Standards. It aims to "provide Web authors with the resources necessary to promote Web standards as a commercially desirable choice for clients".
Macromedia has been redesigned. The
website, sorry, Rich Internet Application is a bit to much Flash for my liking. But atleast everything works as it should in Phoenix.
