New homepage

We have not only moved home, I have also moved my homepage.

In the past years, I have had my homepage hosted at the TU Delft Visualisation Group. I have worked there for about six years, so all that time I had free hosting, lots of space and lots of features.

I had also registered my domain (bvrolijk.net), six years ago, without hosting, but with domain and email forwarding, at redirection.net. So no disk space, just forwarding to the TU Delft.

Ever since I left the TU, I’ve been thinking about hosting my domain elsewhere, possibly even doing it myself. My homepage consists of only a small number of pages, but I like putting some photos online, I have a wiki, which I use quite a lot, and a weblog (yep, this is it). But since there are so many good, free services nowadays (at the moment, this weblog is hosted at wordpress.com, for free and with lots of space; and I uploaded lots of photos to picasaweb.google.com, also for free and also quite spacious), I was in doubt whether it would be worth it to buy a hosting package.

WordPress

Hello world and welcome at my all new and shiny weblog.

As you can see, my weblog has been moved to WordPress.com. If you haven’t done so already, please update your link or bookmark to bvrolijk.net.

I have used the import function of WordPress to copy all of my old (Movable Type) weblog entries to this new system. I hope the conversion went all right, but if you see anything strange, please let me know.

Many thanks to Charl for hosting my weblog these past four-and-a-half years and for his help in the conversion.

Lapidation (2)

Continuing on the lapidation story, I would like to vote for introduction of the death penalty. And I don’t mean some “civilised” death penalty like a lethal injection, the electric chair, or hanging… I think lapidation is a good idea. I think the convicted should suffer a slow and painful death.

Of course I’m not talking about people who have committed minor offences, small delicts, or even larger crimes, like thieves and murderers… No, I am talking about the real scum-of-the-earth, the utter lowest life-form possible.

Yes, I am talking about the SPAMMERS!

Homepage makeover

I just put my new homepage online. I did a complete refurbishment of it.
I’ve been thinking about it for quite some time, and already did some experiments to try to get the correct layout. Using tables it’s not so hard – just a lot of HTML code. But since tables should not be used to layout document content, and “authors should use style sheets to control layout rather than tables”, according to the W3C, I wanted to redo the layout using DIVs. That took me some time to work out, but I finally got it, just the way I want to. In a real browser, that is. It’s amazing to see how Microsoft Internet Explorer can f*ck up the layout. This is what my homepage looks like in IE, and this is what it should look like. Well, maybe I’ll sort it out some time. If you have a great idea, please let me know.
