a pointer

For the non-Flickr-contacts that visit here: there's tons more Berlin photos to see in this Flickr set of mine, and plenty more on the way, probably.

Almost three weeks on, and browsing through the many photos of my short trip still makes me discover more cool stuff to post. If only the photos sucked, maybe then I would learn not to shoot so many; but no, somehow I like almost every one of the 1000+ photos I made. I'll be in real trouble the next time I go on a longer trip.

hidden Flickr referrers

Looking at my Flickr most-viewed photos stats just now, I was surprised at how many views this photo had gotten - 542 views with barely any comments or faveings! As it turns out that might have something to do with the fact that it's actually the 4th(!) result in Google for the phrase no smoking allowed - while a copy of the same photo on my own site is the 5th result.

Which makes me wonder how many other people end up on my Flickr photostream via Google, or via any other site for that matter, without me realizing it... I guess it's too much to ask Flickr to offer personalized referrer listings for stats-addicts like me. :)

This problem is solved, for Pro-users anyway, with the recent introduction of Flickr Stats!

December 2005

Saving the photos I take in my dreams doesn't seem to get any easier; I checked and double-checked the viewscreen and memory card this time (recalling past experiences), but still they disappeared.

The only conversation I had yesterday was with somebody calling me up to ask me 50 questions about cheese.

NS Zomeractie

Belangrijk bericht voor treinreizende bezoekers: hebben jullie je kaartnummers al 's gecontroleerd op de NS Zomeractie pagina? Elke dag maak je opnieuw kans op prijzen.

Als je een aardig voorraadje kaarten hebt heb je bijna altijd prijs; ik heb inmiddels al drie dagkaarten, drie ijsjes en 1 flesje frisdrank(!) gewonnen. [via Martijn]

I have Gmail

Had it for some time now (thanks to Brent), still don't know what to do with it; I generally don't use web-based email.

But if you have any interesting large-but-mailable files (mp3s, pictures, whatever), feel free to send them to,milovermeulen. I'm trying to see how fast I can fill up the 1GB limit... :)

my name in chalk

Wow... Don't see that very often.
Having a relatively uncommon name means that when I see it it's usually because I wrote it or it refers to me. But apparently I'm not the only Milo in my neighborhood. :)

June 2003

Idea: to compile a list of current stories, meaning any tv series, book or movie with a continuing narrative that I'm reading/watching and haven't yet reached the end of:

24 (in the middle of S2)
Angel (waiting for S5)
Firefly (cancelled after ep. 10)
Hellsing (at ep. 8)
LOTR The Two Towers (1/4th remaining)
Stellvia of the Universe (at ep. 6)
Samurai Jack (at ep. 4, ignoring horrible Dutch dubs on tv)
Six Feet Under (waiting for S2)
The Day of the Triffids (only a few pages left)
The Matrix Trilogy (waiting for Revolutions)
The Quiet American (paused halfway)
The Sopranos (somewhere in S3, currently rewatching S2)
Wolf's Rain (at ep. 14)

Also, sort of:
Aeon Flux (still haven't seen all eps to be able to fully comprehend the story overall world view)
Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (at ep. 14; if there is an overencompassing story arc, it's rather subtle)

April 2003

I'm going to try to not post any photos for the duration of oh, let's say one week, limiting my posts to links, text or artificial images - I'm curious to see what will happen...

Need to break the cycle; even when typing this entry I found myself automatically starting with <img src=...

In the mean time, you can always jump to a random entry/photo.

I watched a couple of kids playing the old wallet-on-a-string trick—and succeeding! And this was alongside a bicycle path, so people had to actually stop and get off their bikes, trying to pick up the wallet (no doubt intending to return it to the proper owner); but whoosh, there it disappears into the bushes! Ah, the classics...

Als ik het niet lees, is het niet waar.

The fun thing about building a site with comments, forum or chat abilities, is that you can use those functions to discuss the development of the site itself—an interesting mechanism whereby people test the site by giving feedback (or vice versa), the system gets improved giving people more/better means to give feedback, even more suggestions are given, and so on, and so on...

One problem with using public transportation, convenient as it is, is that you're repeatedly confronted with huge, offensive billboards advertising tobacco. Last December saw a particularly good one:

Seasons Greetings from Marlboro Country

Wtf do they mean by that?! Something like: Merry Christmas, we hope you'll buy plenty of our products before you die from using them as they were intended ?

Smokers suck... (literally)

Oups! Don't print a page with a black background when you've activated the 'Print background images and colors' option! Well, nice printer test, anyway...

For a while I had trouble holding my Graphire2 pen steady long enough to make tooltips appear when hovering over items. I have since learned to simply lift the pen up high after positioning the cursor.

Mailing lists and vacation auto-responders are a dangerous combination...

argh.. second day home sick..

Wat hebben die weblog-tools toch eigenlijk mooie namen: 'Pivot', 'Nucleus', 'Movable Type', 'Greymatter'.

Heh... 'right before I left'.

By the way, I've returned from my vacation in Portimão, Portugal (the previous post neglected to mention where I was going, sorry). Currently opening and reading a *lot* of familiar and new weblogs to find out what people wrote and experienced this past crazy week. This is gonna take me a while...

idea: generate a calendar-view of all my entries, colouring the days from white to red depending on the amount of text posted on a given day, and seeing what patterns emerge.

Yay! My cable-modem is back online!

todo: make the list of names next to the comment link clickable urls also, instead of static html.

referrer-pages be fun. here's my extended referrer listing, btw:

Those icons to the left are clickable, by the way.

I lost my watch a couple of days ago. Luckily, the alarm is set to go off daily at 21:15. Which gives me 20 seconds each day to try and locate it by sound, or wait for the next day.

Today, I found it.

Using a green pen makes writing so much more fun...

You know, those Windows 'Save as' dialog boxes could really use a type-able address bar, like in regular Explorer...

Hard to believe I've only had this new template online since last week... Seems much longer.

Fun thing to do late at night: walking thru an empty shopping mall, pretending you're living in a deserted, post-apocalyptic city...
