Only 9 days and I’m off to London to join the @media conference. Not only am I looking forward to this event because of the interesting speeches and learning material, but also because of the social aspect. You know, putting faces to the familiar names.

My travel destination of this Summer

19 comments 2005 at 03.17 am posted by Veerle Pieters

A while ago I asked your advice on my travel destination for this Summer and a lot of you came up with some nice tips and hints. Thing is that there were so many nice destinations that it was difficult to make a choice. Italy was a topper in the comments. I decided to go to a travel agency, get some travel books and do some browsing. My favorite destinations were : Kos, Sardinia, Sicily and Cyprus.

Using the blend option in Illustrator CS

28 comments 2005 at 02.28 am posted by Veerle Pieters

A while ago I was drawing an illustration in Adobe Illustrator CS for one of my clients. This Illustration required some time and labor because of its complexity. I thought it would be interesting to share some of my experiences on this…

When I received a meme from Andy Budd, first thing I did was hit F12 and look in Dashboard what the hell a “meme” and a “baton” was? And yes I got my answers there, I LOVE Dashboard! So now on to the music maestro!

Geek night out for StarWars Episode III

22 comments 2005 at 07.50 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It might come to a bit of a surprise to some of you since not a lot of girls do love Sci-Fi movies. At least I don’t know any who like Star Trek or StarWars. I’ve always been a fan of movies where a lot of fantasy is involved. It started all when I got to know my boyfriend, he is a Star Trek fan and so I was completely sold from the first Star Trek episode. You could say I’m a ‘late-flower’ into the world of Sci-Fi.

My thoughts on NetNewsWire 2.0 (review)

12 comments 2005 at 04.15 am posted by Veerle Pieters

When a programmer put his heart and soul into a project it shows and that’s exactly what Brent Simmons has done with the recently released NetNewsWire 2.0. I’ve been using the beta’s for a very long time and never had any issues or crashes. It has become an indispensable tool in my daily life.

Real world test of H.264 vs Sorenson 3

5 comments 2005 at 06.22 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Here at Duoh! we have been using the Sorenson Video 3 Pro Codec for a long time. We had great results with it and it’s probably one of the best codecs on Mac. That was until H.264 came on to the scene. We haven’t got time to play around with it. Fortunately for us, Jeff Harrell did.

The end score is same file size but dramatically different results. If you’re into video this a good read and leaves us with a pleasant feeling that great things will be possible thanks to this new H.264 codec. Eagerly waiting for Apple to ship the new Final Cut Studio ;-)

Using Spotlight to index external volumes

18 comments 2005 at 03.51 am posted by Veerle Pieters

We at Duoh! use our Xserve to store all work and were wondering why Apple didn’t create an option in the interface to index external volumes with Spotlight. Or maybe it isn’t obvious enough to me and I didn’t find it yet? If we perform a search, 99% of the time it will be on an external mounted volume.

A game for the weekend

13 comments 2005 at 04.17 am posted by Veerle Pieters

There has past some time since I last linked to one of those Yeti games. The last one was part 5. I skipped a few versions because I found them not cool enough to link to. Now they are at part 8 called Jungle Swing. Your Yeti must play Tarzan in the Brazilian jungle and swing from branch to branch.

It’s actually pretty difficult, at least for me :-) The ideal time waster for the weekend if you’re not working that is ;-)
