All my thoughts, my work, and some stuff I thought would be interesting to share from over 20 years!

My Apartment version 2.0

I’ve been doing a lot of apartment stuff in Blender for other people and because of that, I learned a lot, and then I thought I could reapply all those things I’ve learned to my own apartment. So I started from scratch, use the old apartment only for measurement and build all the walls now … more →

This place is like a diary

It happens quite a lot that I can’t remember when I did a certain thing, like build my PC. So I come here and use the search and the date of the blog post tells me when that happened. I realized that this website is kinda like a diary for me and that doesn’t bother … more →

RSS Feed

The state of RSS in 2021

I’m feeling like a dinosaur or just a weird human being by still using RSS in 2021 in a time of social media dominance but an RSS Feed App is still my most used app every single day, sometimes by a wide margin. But why is it that no one in my close social environment … more →

It’s close, very close

It’s been one hell of a busy week but I made so much progress with SoaPatrickNine that I think it’s ready to be released very soon. It’s been a blast to start from scratch and actually reduce code and optimize the theme once again. It will be different but at the same time it’s similar, … more →

SP9 is in development

Yes, I’ve started work on SoaPatrickNine and I’ve come quite far with my first coding session. Now I don’t use an app like Photoshop or something like Adobe XD, Figma, or Sketch. I use my coding editor and do something which is called ‘design by coding’. So far I’ve written very hacky code but it’s … more →

My plans for SP9

Yesterday I published the new section SoapLab and with it, I thought a lot about a new structure. Actually, I thought about it for some time but with this new section, the idea to rearrange some things became more imminent. So I played around with it locally and I realized that it was important to … more →

A place for my smaller work

The page is updated so sparely that it seems that I’m not doing anything, which isn’t quite true. I do a lot then there’s a personal issue which I might go into further details another day. But this post is about the creative work I do on a regular basis. Usually, every creative project gets … more →

It’s difficult to accept…

It’s difficult to accept the difference between who you are in your head and who you are in the world.
