Love Letter history and overview

31st July 2022

I love Love Letter, the popular card game by Seiji Kanai. It still amazes me how a game with just 16 cards can be so entertaining and exciting.

It sold millions of copies, is available in 28 languages, has 30 different official versions (at least one is published every year) and dozens of fan-made re-themes. It started the whole microgame craze which made lots of people design very small games.

To celebrate its 10th birthday this year I have made two videos.


Erasable Notebooks Review

26th August 2018

Erasable notebooks are notebooks made of special paper which you can write on with a special pen which you can erase again and again. I really love the concept and how it’s more efficient and environmental friendly.
I had recently bought 6 of them: Rocketbook Everlast, Elfinbook, NewYes Notebook, InfiniteBook (also called EcoBook), WhyNote Book and Esquoia Notebook. With so many to compare I made a video review:


Pure CSS image lightboxes

13th May 2016

I don’t like using JavaScript unnecessarily. That’s why I love pure CSS solutions. As browsers are getting better and better at implementing CSS3 features, pure CSS solutions are getting slicker and more production-ready.

One of the few pure CSS solutions I built recently was a pure CSS lightbox. I built my solution first and then looked at the tens of other solutions out there to compare and check if I missed anything important.


Trialling recipe boxes: Conclusion

27th October 2015

Between 3 July and 31 August I have been trialling 7 different recipe box services, i.e. I cooked 42 portions of meals (7 services × 3 meals × 2 portions = 42). I generally consider this experiment a full success.
I was super-excited every time a new box came, I learned something new with every single recipe, I ate healthier and tastier food than usual and I especially loved the experience of each first bite of a new meal.


Trialling recipe boxes: Introduction

16th August 2015

Recipe boxes are boxes with fresh food ingredients measured to fit recipes sent with the box, delivered to your door, ready to be cooked by yourself.

When I first heard about this concept I immediately loved it and wanted to try it out. Since living in London I very rarely cook for myself, often eating ready-made meals (although usually from Marks & Spencer’s, so not as bad as many others) or take-away food.
The reasons for these types of services are clear to me: It is more convenient (no shopping, searching for rare ingredients, carrying it home, etc), healthier (fresh, often orgaanic, nutritionally balanced recipes, etc), eco-friendlier (less waste due to exactly measured ingredients, less packaging, often organic, etc) and learning new recipes (diversification of your diet, trying new tastes, (re-)learn how to cook, etc).
