It’s Kirby Time

I’ve decided to leave WordPress as my CMS and move over to Kirby, a flat-file CMS. I’ve been using WordPress for a LOOOOOOONG time, so this wasn’t an easy decision, and it sure wasn’t a decision that was made in a haste or quickly. I thought long and hard about this and after some testing … more →

Invisible Monsters

During my vacation, I’ve read my favorite book again, and I loved every minute of it. It still fascinates me even after my fourth read or so. And this time I got very emotional at the end. So I thought I share some snippets from the book, snippets that got to me or mean a … more →

Kirby + Vite + Tailwind + Threejs

Yes, that’s a mouthful but I’ve been playing around with Kirby a lot the last few days (trying to recreate SP9 with it and see what is possible and what is not) and it’s been a blast. The idea with this development stack is to have a quick way of developing and deploying the website … more →

Did I lose my Mojo?

It’s been such a long time since I’m posted anything and what kinda bugs me is that I’ve had multiple moments where I felt like I could post something about this or that but every time I’ve chosen the consuming way and watch something on TV instead. There are so many things I kinda want … more →

Getting into VR

I’ve had my first VR experience about a year ago, where I went to a VR Center and tried on a rather old headset and could experience certain worlds by just walking (or better yet, teleporting) around. It was fascinating but the quality was subpar and I knew that there are better headsets out there. … more →

I took a break

It’s been some time since my last post and the reason for this was that I took a break, deliberately. I used this time to do other stuff, like catch up on some movies or TV Shows, did try out some games, and made some purchases like a VR Headset. Now I’m on a break … more →

Doing something great is overrated.

Doing something great is overrated. ‘Cause then people expect that from you… all the time. What they don’t realize is you’re just as screwed up as they are.
