My best intentions for the new year

  • from a business perspective : getting the new Duoh! website online asap

  • from my “free time” perspective : giving my blog a face lift ... and I don’t only mean design-wise here ;-)

  • personally : give a donation to the people in Asia who need every help they can get. Geert and myself donated 137 Euros which is the amount that Unicef needs to install a water pomp to supply a whole community of drink water. I think it’s the least we can do. This all made me realize even more how good we have it here. So I plan to enjoy life a bit more and value the good things.

If you have a blog that contains publicity, maybe this is a good starting point. A nice initiative from Andy Budd is BlogAid.

And the winners are…

Well I've got to say, it wasn't easy to pick out 3 winners. Some of you helped me by giving me a hint that you aren't really into this kind of music but just wanted to let me know why you come visit my blog. Others gave some funny reason in an original way, like bici, but then he didn't answer my DJ question. Anyway these are the winners of the Defected CD:

  • Raven
  • Marc Kohlbrugge
  • AkaXakA

Please send an e-mail to with your home address so I can send it to you. Congratz!

2004, my personal highlights

Looking back on 2004 I realize that it has been a hell of a year. Since a lot of people in the blogosphere are making up their ‘list’ I thought I can do this as well.

After all that try-out cataloging software of last week, it’s time to take a break and be creative again. In other words, play-time for you, show-time for me! ;-)

In our search to the perfect Digital Asset Management tool I recently also discovered a FileMaker Pro solution called 2. So if you’re already working with Filemaker like I do you can manage your files with your existing FileMaker solution. version 2 enables you to import file names, paths and icons into FileMaker. Additionally, any file can be opened out of FileMaker together with its parent application. It’s for Mac and Windows and more info about can be found here. A free try-out version is also available. A single user version has the very reasonable price of $29.

A holiday present for FREE!

Imago… developed by two Belgian Mac users

Since the topic of this week seems to be cataloging, this new solution for photographers will fit in nicely. The fact that the solution is developed by two Belgian guys is a nice bonus, and no I am not getting paid to plug it here ;-)

Digital asset management

23 comments 2004 at 07.15 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Digital asset management that is the “fancy” term of the topic from last Friday. Since then I’ve tested several of the applications that were mentioned in the comments. For those that haven’t been following along we we’re talking about archiving solutions for all the files that we have to deal with in our daily job. In our case that is a DVD full of all kind of files like fonts, icons, music, QuickTime files, eps, psd, pdf, Abobe Illustrator, InDesign, Quark etc.

Indexing a CD or DVD, how do you do it?

24 comments 2004 at 02.21 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It is amazing how much data of work we collect. Clients send CD’s full of stuff that we need for a particular job etc. You know the drill, websites, brochures, logos etc, gigabytes that no longer fit on a CD. As a company we need to store all that in such a way that it is easy traceable and quickly found.
