Herbal liqueurs from Bärwurzerei Hieke Zwiesel in Germany

I recently got a present from a good colleague. It was a package with three jars with different tasting German herbal liqueurs from Bärwurzerei Hieke Zwiesel.

The reason I write about them is simply because I only knew the standard brownish herbal liqueurs - I have never tasted something like these before. These taste super! Here they are... give'm a try.


Use Flot graphing library with Lasso Professional

I have created a quick example on how to create a graph with Flot and Lasso Professional. Flot is a really cool graphing library and Lasso is a cool programming language. Together, they create a great graph!

My Cat Ate My Croissants


I was just bringing the first load of groceries inside and then our cat took his chance ... and succeeded ;-)

End october 2010 my wife and I went to Berlin where I attended the Lasso Developer Conference 2010 (see previous post). We planned a long weekend so we could see something of the famous city. I have never been there before! We had such a nice weather, it really was amazing.
Via a tip of a good friend of ours, we booked an apartment, instead of a hotel, via Airbnb. I found a very nice apartment, right in Berlin Mitte. The photo's on the Airbnb site show exactly how the apartment is. But it also has a balcony where we had our breakfast every morning! On top of all this, the apartment also offers a DSL internet connection for free - wifi or cable. By renting an apartment, we could spend our money during the day and cook for ourselves at the apartment.

I made a panorama of the living room:

and here's a shot of the nice balcony:


It was soo quiet in Berlin Mitte, you hardly imagine yourself in the middle of a mega city. I can really recommend this and I would certainly rent it again when we go back - I haven't seen all of Berlin yet. We only did the major touristic stuff by foot and bike. Funny, look at the shape of the route we took:


At the Lasso Developer Conference 2010


The Euro Lasso Developer Conference 2010 was held in Berlin on 30 and 31 of october 2010 @ GLS Campus Berlin. Organized by ANU Internet Services, this was a great idea and happening. The brand new Lasso 9 was discussed very much; various demos and presentations of code and sites built with Lasso 9. LassoSoft announced they found an investor and were getting back on track! Only good news - of course!
It was nice to meet fellow developers who I normally only have contact with by reading and posting to mailing lists.
Thanks to Chris Wik from ANU for his spontaneous idea and rapid put-together of a well done DevCon!

Tijdens een bezoek aan Wawollie in Goor, zag ik dit prachtige beestje staan:

Meer over Wawollie bij Man Bijt Hond en hier is de locatie (waar de groene pijl staat op de kaart).
Hier is een groot-formaat png met alfa-kanaal: IMG_0053.png


Ik ben een nieuwe pagina gestart waarop ik al onze zelfgemaakte ansicht- en wenskaarten ga plaatsen. Ik pas de kaarten na eigen gebruik aan zodat ze algemeen toepasbare zijn. Van sommige heb ik de Photoshop file ook beschikbaar gesteld en die bevinden zich in de download link. Dus ... als je op Ameland zit of eens een andere kerst- of nieuwjaarskaart zoekt, kijk hier dan eens.
