    So this is Christmas…

    Eleven days no postings?! That’s not a good start, Luc. I plead guilty on all accounts. I have no excuses. But I have a great explanation! You see, when all of you were preparing for this Grande Bouffe event that is coming up, I have been chasing down webhosting companies for 7 days. The...

    Friday the thirteenth! And nothing bad has happened to me all day yet! Okay, I’m a little bit short of news to tell you, but it doesn’t feel right not to post anything at all. So here goes, the new schedule: I will leave on Saturday, 4th of January 2003. If all goes well...

    And the weather is…

    I succesfully added a live weather badge for Iraklio, just below the calendar. From the looks of it, the weather in Crete isn’t so bad. Nothing more to report.

    Winter hits all of Greece

    by  • 9 December, 2002 • General • 0 Comments

    Heavy snowfall, torrential rain and powerful winds caused havoc across Greece on Saturday and yesterday, disrupting road, rail and sea transportation, flooding homes, destroying roads and wiping out crops. The central regions of Pieria and Larissa were hit hardest, with the government declaring them in a state of emergency, as floodwaters covered their fertile...

    I’m (almost) home, honey

    by  • 9 December, 2002 • General, Tech • 0 Comments

    With a lot of help from the friendly experts at the Radio Userland discussion forum, I got this thing to look more or less like I want it to. I will not need to re-install the software after all, which is great. For the moment I’m still using one of the predefined templates which...

    Don’t worry, be happy…

    I missed my self-imposed deadline for my departure to Crete. About one year ago, Yvonne and I agreed that we would celebrate my 50th birthday in our new home. In september this year we adjusted that plan to what I already described as the new plan (see Friday). It still meant that I should...

    Not yet ready for prime time

    by  • 8 December, 2002 • Tech • 0 Comments

    Radio is still not working as it should. I’m seriously thinking of reinstalling the software after throwing away the existing blogs and re-registering as a new user. I don’t know what the effect of that will be on the server, but I can’t continue like this very much longer.

    Ik ben blijkbaar nog niet helemaal klaar met het configureren van mijn weblog want er gaan regelmatig dingen fout. Ook op het discussie-forum van Radio Userland kom ik veel kleine irritante tekortkomingen tegen. Ik blijf proberen.

    Mijn thuis is waar mijn ouzo staat

    Voor de belangstellenden: we zijn volop bezig ons huis te koop aan te bieden. Wat een gedoe met makelaars. Voor ik vertrek zou ik dat graag afgerond hebben. Natuurlijk zijn we daarmee veel te laat begonnen. Bij de grote opruimingsactie (een dozijn abonnementen op computertijdschriften vanaf 1980, zo’n drieduizend kilo papier in het Yariske...

    Alle begin is moeilijk

    by  • 6 December, 2002 • Tech • 1 Comment

    Wel, we zijn zo ver! Neen, niet zó ver… Wat ik wil zeggen is dat ik een eerste poging om onze avonturen te registreren en publiekelijk toegankelijk te maken met redelijk succes heb afgesloten. “Ja maar, er staat hier toch niets over Kreta!” Dat klopt, zoals ik al in de aanhef zei: “zó ver...
