❭❭ Demand Responsive Transport

A great insight into what could be the future of transport in more rural areas.

❭❭ RegExr

In computer programming there is this thing called regular expressions (or short RegEx). They are basically simplified patterns in a special format to find (and replace) text. They are very powerful, but also at first can be hard to understand. I struggled with them for years until I found RegExr. It allows you to live tests regular expressions and has a handy, really helpful cheatsheet next to them in the sidebar. Now I understand them much better and I'm actually happy, if I can use them.

"Edit the expression & text to see matches. Roll over matches or the expression for details. PCRE & JavaScript flavors of RegEx are supported. Validate your expression with tests mode."

10 Years

Blueprint

Ten years ago on this day I registered this domain and published this website. In the following years the website has undergone many changes. On the 5th anniversary I published a small article about the changes until then. Now another five years later it's time for another update:

The website and domain are now hosted by Variomedia after my previous provider got taken over by a bigger company and quality began to suffer. The transfer was easy and the underlying technology stack is now much more modern. I couldn't be happier with its new home.
I still edit this website with the best editor made by Panic, but its name changed with a big update. It's now called Nova and it's even better than before.
I continue to use an improved Sketch to design the header images and ImageOptim to optimise their file size afterward.
The customs fonts are all gone and instead I now use a combination of your system font and Helvetica. This greatly helped to improve loading time.
My own CMS is still used today, but it got several small improvements.

Ten years is a long time, especially in IT, and I'm really thankful for your continued support!
