Did I Say That?

random thoughts and other junk

I guess it makes me smile

Last weekend, after quite some time, foobar2000 0.9 was released. So today I downloaded and installed it, along with some plug-ins (some still have to be updated) and did some configuring / tweaking (some still need to be done). So far: thumbs up.

Other than that, meh. C'est la même merde, dans un autre jour. Or something like that. My french isn't what it's been, and it's never been much.

Actually, some time ago, it once crossed my mind to take some classes to get my french to some level where it's useable. That could have been triggered by last years adventures in Wallonia, or my current affection of a dutch chansonièrre (whom I'll be seeing live in Amsterdam on the very last day of the reprise of her tour if all goes well), but guess what? Indeed — being the procrastinator that I am, I let that notion just float out of the window, because like with a lot of other things, I can't be arsed to make the effort.

And that, that is nothing new. Earlier last year, I had the crazy idea that it might be cool — or at least, mildly entertaining — to take some writing classes. As I think I've noted before, I used to quite enjoy stringing words together, people told me that what I wrote wasn't bad (baring all disclaimers in mind), but lately, every attempt I make seems to end up on the well, actually … lets just forget about it memory-dump.

Maybe I should get up of my lazy ass and do something. But on the other hand, oh well, whatever. Nevermind.

hmmm... sleep

With some quick prototyping, a little bit of recoding and a lot of tinkering, I've given the ol'e weblog a make-over. Nothing too fancy, but better than the previous version. Lemme know what you think…

And with that, I'm about to call it a day. Don't particulary feel the need to go out at the moment, and I've got a warm bed and a good book calling out to me.


  1. ziet er cool uit! heel cool!
  2. ja wel beter dan de vorige versie, maar dat was de uitdaging niet :p

To whom it may concern:

  • There seems to be a very good reason I don't have that much to say lately: nothing even remotely interesting is happening.
  • After tomorrow's volleyball practice, I'll be standing on the delivery-side of the bar. People who are planning to meet me on the receiving end of another bar have to take note that I'll be about an hour late. Or they can just show up on the receiving end of the bar I'll be behind.
  • Now these memories come back to haunt me / they haunt me like a curse / is a dream a lie if it don't come true / or is it something worse? Bruce Springsteen, The River

  1. Sage is a lightweight RSS and Atom feed reader extension for Mozilla Firefox. It's got a lot of what you need and not much of what you don't.
  2. Me And You And Everyone We Know. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it. If, like me, you have seen it — go see it again. It is that good.
    So tonight I saw Me & You & Everyone for the second time, and I loved it as much as the first time. I'm now a badge-carrying enthusiast. It's showing down at the Lieve Vrouw until wednesday, so don't wait—go! Me, I'll be waiting for the DVD.
    (afterwards, I went to Marktzicht for one quick beer for the road. "One quick beer" turned out to be "three not so quick beers", because it was, well, interesting.)

Got nothing to say I ain't said before, so here's a list:
