Still playing and enjoying on my Jekyll blog. I live to tweak and experiment with little changes in the templates. Do the hard work in code. Don’t click options. Learn the skills.

🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️🏃‍♂️ I had my first nonstop run over 60 minutes this morning. A year ago to the day I started running regularly to get back some of my condition and endurance. Slowly but surely this has turned into a very satisfying and fun thing to do.
In the first week of october I will run a 10K here in Utrecht during the Singelloop. I hope my time will be around 1:03 - 1:06. Now it's time for a lazy Sunday.

Yesterday I visited the unconference Smart Stuff That Matters. Here are some thoughts (in Dutch) -

Ah gevonden! dus. Die organiseert de periodiek Birthday Unconference bij hem thuis in Amersfoort. Meer is te lezen op

Morgen ga ik naar de Unconference van Ton Zijlstra (hmm.. hij zit op Mastodon maar de zoekmachine vind zijn handle niet) genaamd "Smart Stuff that Matters". Ik schreef er over, waarbij ik direct al mijn sideprojects maar de wereld in gooi.

people who join mastodon, post twice, then immediately write long essays on the public timeline about how mastodon is destined to fail because it's too hard to use

Since a couple of days I see this screen when I go to After some refreshes it might work again, but mostly I go to a Halcyon instance where everything works. Any idea what might cause this issue? ?

Anyway, breakfast is in the pocket, 40 minutes of running done, time to go to work and have a discussion with @patrickloonstra if we should use Genesis as a WordPress framework or just a theme we can mod to our own liking.

Jeetje zeg... hier op de federated instances lijkt al niet veel beter dan op andere netwerken. Wil Wheaton is er door een "mob" afgejaagd. Hoe is dat mogelijk? Check de thread die hij schrijft die ik zojuist boostte....

I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.

It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x

En in een complete breintwister (hup federatie!), ik kan nu dus mezelf volgen op via mijn account. Dit is echt hoe federated servers kunnen werken dus. Niet alleen dezelfde Mastodon-posts, maar allerlei soorten content. Geweldig!

Utrecht rocks the smart city hypecycle. With SMS.... You can send a text to a lamppost...Yeah...

An SEO webmaster walks into a bar, public house, tavern, pub, club, menu, beer garden, pool table, darts, games, snacks

Played around with the old OPML editor from Dave Winer. After a few hoops to get it going, I finally had something on my screen. Too bad the software doesn't stand the test of time. Docs are gone, incomplete preferences, no idea where to go next. The main concept is pretty cool, a local webserver, bloggingtool, podcatcher, newsreader, outliner etc but too hard to get started with...

Shouldn't Mastodon servers work together like the old newsgroups did? Every server is a newsgroup and you can subscribe to any. With one account you have yourself. Smart software could show a unified timeline.
