Looking for some details about a train I found, the personal site of Dennis Koster. Dennis seems to be a long-time trainspotter who has been photographing trains for years. A lot of his pictures would not look bad in railway magazines.

Strong words from Paul Thurrott (a writer who seems to be quite pro-windows) in his reaction to the IE 7 beta versions still not fixing CSS and other web-standards compliance bugs: My advice is simple: Boycott IE. It's a cancer on the Web that must be stopped. IE isn't secure and isn't standards-compliant, which makes it unworkable both for end users and Web content creators..

I am back from WhatTheHack. It was great, saw a lot of people, attended interesting workshops, gave a few lockpicking workshops, competed in the Dutch Open 2005 lockpicking championships (ok, I never got close to the finals, but it was fun to be there). I met people from the German lockpicking club (Sportsfreunde der Sperrtechnik Deutschland e.V.) which was real nice. Best feature was EventPhone who managed to set up a complete network of DECT coverage on the site.
