|About the Condor and the Snail|
The Condor is my Optima Condor recumbent bicycle. More about recumbents (ligfietsen) can be found at the Ligfietsplaza (NL).
A Condor is a perfect bike to use in the mountains (FR). People even use it in offroad (NL) conditions (FR).
Why Snail? It's a feeling.
Who am I? Maybe the following will give you an idea.
These are my "ten CD's to bring with me to a desert island":
Rush - Moving Pictures
Underworld - Everything Everything
The Church - Starfish
Pearl Jam - Ten
Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters
Reef - Replenish
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Beastie Boys - Check Your Head
Acda & De Munnik - Op Voorraad
Alice in Chains - Jar of Flies
BTW I decided not to take any music with me. I'm sure all kinds of songs will pop up in my head instantly.
These mailing lists I was subscribed to.
Bruce Schneier's Crypto-gram: A monthly newsletter providing summaries, analyses, insights, and commentaries on computer security and cryptography. Computer security often has surprising analogies to the "real world".
The Filter: A regular newsletter with law-related news and commentary from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School
Apache Week: Weekly news about world's most popular web server
The Atlantic Online: Online version of The Atlantic Monthly, a magazine on politics, history, literature and more. Too bad it's not available in the Netherlands.
These are the sites I visited regularly:
Slashdot - a geek gathering, not just tech stuff though
The Register - a tech tabloid, high sarcasm factor
