Added the download area

2011-02-26 (86) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

This afternoon I switched to WordPress completely. I found a little Perl script to import my previous posts. Oke, not completely nice and all, but better this than cut and paste.

But I missed my downloads. It's not much, but I want them back. So I did. WordPress has a very nice download manager, so I installed it and added all files. Created a download page and added the categories.


Switching to WordPress

2010-07-20 (54) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

I've been using NanoBlogger for some time now, but the evolution of this stuff lacks progress. So, as an experiment I've setup Wordpress and I'll see how that feels.

Updated the Geek Code

2009-06-05 (23) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

It was a long time ago that I created a Geek Code Block for myself. As I aged this block aged with we, so it was about time I updated it.

Take a look at the about to see the new code. I also added a decoded verion for those who do not like to decode stuff.

Changed the top photo

2009-05-10 (18) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

At the top of this site I used a photo I found on Flickr and that was made by Toverberg. It was a nice panorama.

However it was a very nice photo I thought it would be better to use one I made myself. So today I was out there with a friend of mine (Niels) taking pictures for his camping. When selecting these pictures I was triggered by the one now shown at the top of this page. It shows the "Dutch National Liberation Museum 1944-1945" in our beautiful village. The white part in the middle resembles a parachute and inside it is "The Dome of Honour", with the "Roll of Honour" and was built in 1987. This is in memory of the dropping of thousands of American paratroopers on the landing zones alongside the Wylerbaan and in Klein Amerika on 17 September 1944, as well as the great Rhineland Offensive.

At the right of the Dome of Honour is the main building. This is largely build with portacabins from the former Neeltje Jans flood barrier construction site in Zealand. These were moved here in 1987.

W3C Compliant

2009-04-14 (13) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

I did take a lot of care to make this site W3C compliant, but a little bug entered the code. This spoiled it and W3C give me 48 errors. Of course that's too much. A little debugging session showed the problem and now I'm W3C again.

Have a look at the W3C Validation Service

Markdown patched

As you might know, this site is created with Nanoblogger and Markdown. This setup works nice and almost completely as I want it.

Nanoblogger code plugin

2009-04-10 (11) by Ton Kersten, tagged as blog

Miek pointed me to a nice plugin for Nanoblogger called the Code Plugin

Some nice examples:

#include <stdio.h>

int main( int argc, char* argv[] )
    /* A Hello world example */
    (void) printf( "Hello, World!\n" );

    return 0;



# A Hello world example
echo "Hello world"

If you want to cut and paste code examples, just go into vi and give it a
