Randolph Lalonde - Warpath


Lalonde continues, but I think the last two or three books in the Spinward Fringe series haven't been as good as the earlier ones. In fact, the best books of the series might have been the free First Light Chronicles omnibus, as well as The Expendable Few. He's losing a bit of steam, perhaps things got too big?

Let's hope he gets the story back on track for book number 10.

Sticker (lijm) verwijderen? WD40! (Dutch)

DIY. Dutch.

WD40 is raar spul. Het helpt om tandwielen en schroefdraad te smeren, werkt als kruipolie, en je kunt er zelfs lijmresten mee verwijderen...

Kung Fu Panda


Kung Fu Panda. I've seen this movie now... what? Four? Five? Six times? Once in the cinema, couple of times on DVD and NetFlix.

And I keep laughing every time.

Neal Stephenson - Cryptonomicon / Snowcrash


I should change the title of this blog to 'reviews of old novels everyone already read'...

I was never a big fan of Neal Stephenson (but neither is he a big fan of mine, or so I assume 😄) and I never was much into 'present tense'... I tried some of his other works, and couldn't 'get into' them.

C J Cherry - Foreigner - Visitor / Convergence / Emergence


We're at books 17, 18 and 19 of the Foreigner series. It looks like Cherryh isn't giving up. And, to be honest, these are quite readable, though perhaps a little slow.

D&D Player's Traveling Kit


Hobbies are great. Combining hobbies is even better. After fixing up my 'rollsnijder' (papercutter) I found a new use for the 3D printer... a 'D&D Player's Traveling Kit'.

Not very useful, but still fun 😇

Netflix - Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress - The battle of Unato


Netflix does bring a lot of Anime lately. Some of it awful, some of it not that bad. Some of it... euh... incomplete.

To quote Trump: sad.
