Skyland

Review.

Skyland was showing on Dutch television. I downloaded a few episodes in the past, and noticed that the broadcasted version was post-processed to look more 'dirty'. Which made it look a lot better, to be honest. 

Storywise it's okay.

Galactik Football

Review.

I'm not into soccer much, but the anime series Galactic Football wasn't too bad. Though it wasn't too good either, to be honest 😅 Most interesting was perhaps the drawing style, CGI 'cell shaded' characters on more detailed backgrounds.

The writing process

Column. Writing.

Writing is hard. It's very hard. People have no clue how hard it actually is. Even writers themselves are clueless.

So, I set out to document the writing process. Read on (besides, it was about time I created another mindmap)...

Converting and formatting manuscripts

Writing.

Every writer has their own preference. For example, I prefer to write with empty lines instead of indents. (There are some disadvantages to that method, but I just find it easier that way.)

Still, you might want to go for the 'official' format when submitting.

Netflix - The Queen's Gambit

Review.

I’m in love. Not necessarily with Anna Taylor-Joy (who, frankly, does have a bit of a weird face, though that might be a deliberate make-up choice) but with the sixties. I’m a bit surprised that nobody is mentioning Beth Harmon’s… eh… predecessor / inspiration misses Emma Peel 😅

Here's some information if you need to pin a batch file shortcut to the taskbar, if you want to create a desktop shortcut to a Microsoft Store App, or if you want to automate stuff...

Rename a Bluetooth device on Windows 10

You can rename your Bluetooth devices under Windows 10 (1909 and 2004). But it's not obvious how to do it, and in some cases it simply doesn't work at all.

Follow these steps...

Will Wight - Cradle 1 - Unsouled

Review.

A typical (?) LitRPG, no tables, but it’s all about leveling and power, and boring as hell. It’s book 1 of the Cradle series, and I got the first eight books for free, but I doubt I will enjoy any of them.

Anything even vaguely resembling LitRPG or GameLit is a definite no-go for me.
