The articles

Last post of the year

I wish my millions upon millions of readers all the best for 2009. And let us hope for lots of great content on this website during that year!

Finest moment

Whilst digging through my dvd collection, I came across the DVD my school made about Worldskills 2003. I ripped a part of it for your viewing pleasure.

Video content test

I've been moaning about adding video capability to my website for quite a while, and finally, here it is.

Macro photography primer

Since Christmas 2007 I'm the proud owner of a Nikkor 60mm Micro Prime lens. This article contains a quick run-down of why this lens is made of awesome.

HTC Touch Diamond

As my usual two year Vodafone contract was coming to an end, it was time to renew, and pick a nice new phone. It became the HTC Touch Diamond.

Fashion model

She looks a bit like a fashion model, doesn't she? Picture taken as I was showing beautiful Madalina the Netherlands.

A few changes

Recent changes and notes for this website.

Services resumed

Ahh yes. Two weeks go by way to quickly! On Sunday evening, I got off the airplane on Schiphol, arriving from Cork.

Gone again, off to Ireland

Those of you expecting regular updates from now on, should hold their breath for two weeks, as I will be on vacation to Ireland, starting Saturday.

HayoBethlehem.nl V10

This website has been pretty boring since February. There were a few reasons for that. I'll be talking about those in future posts. I did use the lull productively, as I hereby launch my freshly improved website. You may need to refresh your cache.

1814 relives in Archeon

Archeon was warped back in time, to the year 1814, the year when the Peace of Paris was signed. For the occasion, more then 300 members of the Napoleontic Association of the Netherlands provided an accurate reconstruction of military life during that time.

Thoughts on HTML5

I have an issue with the HTML5 draft specification. I hadn't read it before, but poked around in it yesterday. I've come to the conclusion it's not what I want.

Why the USA can’t join the EU
