Some HTML5 fun

Mixing one of my Freiburg photos with some HTML and CSS:

Looks best on a 13″ or smaller. On larger screens, the photo doesn’t fill the whole space.

The original is here:



I got very lost in the Küttigen-Rombach-Aarau area yesterday. Google Maps sent me to the wrong place. I missed the event.

It was raining. I gave up. And walked back to Aarau.

I found a nice place to recover called Tuchlaube.

Next time I’ll try Gossip:

On my way back to the station I found a nice book store to browse thru.


Jog log: Sunset

Today I went for a nice 5 km in the sunset.

Not sure if I’m ready for a 10 km race by end of the month. I’ll decide this week.


Jog log: Oh deer

I went for a short run this evening. Nothing to write home about. Simply trying to keep up with the regular running system. Nothing spectacular. Except that I saw a deer. A deer. In this urban part of north-west Switzerland.


I really like this idea

Just saw this entry via this tweet:

A Book of Tweets By People Claiming They’re Working on Their Novels

Maybe one day I will publish my Twitter poetry collection on dead wood.

Via an Indieweb wiki page, I found this article:

Unless your friend bows to the same silo-god as you do, the two of you can not communicate.

fun running

Jog log: This hill in my backyard

I went for a slow run up the hill today. Two kilometres on the sawdust track and then further up the hill, all the way to the top. I don’t have any metrics to share because I haven’t jumped on the “quantified self” bandwagon. Yet.

My guess: more than 1 and a half hours and about 10 km.

Due to all the rain we had in the past week and the summer temperatures, it felt tropical. I like.

While running, my mind was busy answering emails and writing blog entries. That’s so weird. It shows: we need movement and fresh air to cope with all the data we’re consuming and processing.

A few days ago, I was searching through my blog and saw an old entry that I wrote about running in San Francisco and the advertising campaign at the time: These hills will chew you up. Run easy.

At the end, I did some stair climbing. There are many outdoor stairs along my route. Better than any gym.
