I volunteer as 'IT person' for a museum in its early days, (eicas.nl - @EICAS).

I would love to connect with other "museum people" and "museum IT people", here and elsewhere.

Any boosts/recommendations welcome!

Spent some time adding some of the local places I like to the page for my town,

Not sure if it is 'worth it', as a traveller I don't find wikivoyage pages particularly easy to consume, but it was a nice relaxing activity for a slow sunday afternoon.


You'd think being a vector format, would be really easy to scale.

No free lunch though: for straight horizontal/vertical lines, they will either be anti-aliased or sharp depending on whether the edge happens to end up aligned with a pixel or not.

Once you see it, you see it even on a fancy-schmancy 15" 4K UHD screen...

So now, rather than just doing 'imagemagick convert', I'm considering scaling the SVG and doing a quick script to pull the straight lines to the nearest pixel first...

Memory Analyzer (MAT) my old friend!

Such a nice tool for tracking down memory leaks in applications.

Sure, I'd rather not have a leak at all, but it was a lot of fun hunting it down and finding it in an unexpected place! Long time since I last had to.

So... apparently we had a in the network? Almost causing a large-scale ?

I'm a total n00b when it comes to these kinds of things, but it sounds fascinating!


Today I had a lot of fun re-listening the "West Coast Boogaloo" album by the Greyboy Allstars, with 2 of my musical heroes: Karl Denson (of his Tiny Universe) and Fred Wesley (of James Brown fame).

When it came out back in 1994 I bought this album "as a download" - which was somewhat of a novelty at the time.

Imagine my surprise when I found out just last year they re-issued it on fancy 3-colored vinyl. Somewhat of a gimmick, sure, but I couldn't resist :D

I just submitted my Call for Participation (CfP) entry for @mch2021 - the hacker camp in August, 2020.

Have you, too? Time is starting to get tight ;).


The screw thread from this Edwin Jagger razor broke off. Made a hole and fixed it with a regular screw :D

Hi there!
