Skeemz on Brussels Jazz Marathon

Brussels in the sun, what a pleasure. Some glasses of white wine, listening to music on a ‘terraske’ with some friends, yesterday was really a nice day. Certainly with the pleasant contribution of Skeemz, a Ghent-based band that played funky… Continue Reading →

Spam ads in Atom-2-RSS converter from 2RSS.com

I publish my blog via Blogger, and since they refuse to support RSS, I have to find a way to convert my Atom feeds into RSS, so it is accessible for any RSS reader. I had found an on-line service… Continue Reading →

StereoSearch – a new Hizmo

I’ve got a habit of every now and then making tiny web applications to solve some issue/challenge I encounter. I call these Hizmo’s, for lack of a better term. (You have to be Belgian to get this typo). The last… Continue Reading →
