With Firefox 2 spell checking in text area's is a breeze ! Although the word FireFox is not recognised ;-)

I'm not sure what to do at work: I mean, tell them right away or wait till tomorrow when Ed comes to Delft to tell them I found another job yes or no. I'll call Ed later in the morning.

Sunday, going to Delft ...

Instead of making good use of the very nice weather I'm going to work. Boehoeh ! But I took last Friday off from work and because I don't have enough vacation days left I've to work today. Plus I have some things to finish before the weekend is over.

Thursday, rain and rain ...

Will it ever stop. It's July ! come on ! But with my excellent rain gear I'm almost impervious (I had to look up that word first, I wasn't 100% sure about the spelling/meaning, but I was pleasantly surprised ;-) ) to rain and other weather elements.

Fireworks in the US later today. In ten days in France (ok, it's my birthday, so go ahead if it makes you feel good). Yesterday quite a bit of natural fireworks: thunder. And what kept me busy for most of the night was the result of the get-together with Leo. I must say I'm really impressed. A solid plan. Very interesting projects. Down to earth approach. So I left the cafe yesterday a happy man.

This afternoon I'll have a talk with Maarten at the TUe. Looking forward to that !

Hannah and Sade on the couchWe had a jolly good time last Friday at Maudy's house. The food Fran and Maudy prepared was excellent (the oven dish with chicken breast, red sweet peppers, red pesto and creme fraiche). Maudy sent us a very nice picture of Hannah and Sade . It was fun to hear that Maudy had been to many Prince concerts in the past too. She even got to see a few of the famous after parties (!).

Friday, MI-Partners

Tuesday I heard from Angelo that Leo Sanders was leaving AppTech to form a new company: MI-Partners together with Maarten Steinbuch (TUe) and Bart van den Broek. Interesting ! I sent an email to Leo and called him yesterday. We'll have a cup of coffee coming Tuesday at 5 o'clock at the train station. I've a good feeling about this new endeavour. But let's wait and see what happens.

Thursday, full raingear day

Yep, pouring down this morning. I put on all my gear, went out and thought: is this all ? but 2 minutes later it really started ... so glad I had my rain trousers, shoe covers and coat on. Just checking the pda version of and it should be dry here in the west of Holland now. I'm between Breda and Dordrecht and the sun peeped through the clouds for a second.

Yesterday Fran said it would be nice weather today ... I hope that's true for the rest of the day.

Staring out of the window in infinity. The sun is playing its usual tricks with the clouds. On my right is a nice funnel shaped cloud releasing its burden.
