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).


CSS Cards (Socially) Compared

28th May 2011

Since I wrote my CSS Playing Cards, I wondered how to best publish a comparison of all the various techniques of cards I found and how to keep it up-to-date.

Then I found the answer in a great new service that’s perfect for this kind of thing:

It lets you easily create and edit comparison tables.
You can compare just about anything you can think of. Anyone (well, any registered user) can edit the tables (i.e. items and criteria) or knock something together out of already existing items. It’s more future-proof as it’s easier to update and less error-prone (if the community is there to help to maintain it). It is well thought out: You can re-arrange items and criteria to see more easily what’s important to you.

This takes the wiki concept to the next level.
If you love spreadsheets (like me), you’ll love SocialCompare.

Here is a preview of the Comparison of CSS Playing Cards I created:
