A painting in Dutch Museum ‘More’ by a man,
in a project about more attention to female painters …

I’ve included a large version of the ODP logo to indicate the location of the horizon: that’s at the top of the logo.

For me it certainly was here: reminded me of the Mediterranean and hundreds to thousands of years ago.Just found out that some left wing… Continue reading Atmosphere

Centre of Utrecht, The Netherlands

Kilobytes vs Gigabytes

Left: Bull-mainframe eigthies, right memorycard today

The first time I ‘used’ a computer was in the early 1970s. At the technical university in Delft. As a student you made a pile of punched cards on a very large, noisy machine into which you had punched your ‘app’ [programs we called those app-lications], values ​​for some parameters and your name and student… Continue reading Kilobytes vs Gigabytes
