Goodbye Facebook and WhatsApp

I became increasingly annoyed by Facebook and it’s gathering of data, so I deleted my account.
Instead of Facebook I’m using now Movim, Mastodon, Diaspora* and Friendica

I’ve replaced WhatsApp with Signal, Conversations (XMPP), Kontalk and Telegram

LineageOS on Motorola Moto E 2nd gen

Finally I rooted my Moto E and installed LineageOS.

Why? Quite simple, the last security updates from Motorola were from December 2016. Besides that, my Android version was 6.x

First I had to unlock the bootloader of the phone to install the TWRP recovery, needed to install LineageOS.

Motorola has a good tutorial to unlock the bootloader, you can find it here

This post is still under construction and need lots of editing. I will do it in the next couple of days.

April 2018


A trip to the Landtong, Rozenburg ZH.

It’s been a long time since my last visit. First I went to the Caland Canal to see the Aegir up close. Then I went to the reservation where the Highland Cattle is. 3 of them were in the meadow besides the motorway. I didn’t see them in the reservation, except for 1 in the distance half behind the trees. So I took pictures of the scenery and the gooses that were around. It was a good hike, about 3,5 hours with good weather, a bit hazy when I left, but during the hike the sky cleared.


First White Stork at Park Esdoornlaan, Rozenburg ZH, Netherlands 2018 April 17

This morning I spotted the first White Stork in my village. About 1,5 year ago a stork’s nest was build. Sometimes a Great Cormorant used it as a watchtower.
The nest is in the Esdoornlaanpark and you can see it from the street and the houses


Update : 1 of my photo’s is published in the local newspaper (Rozenburgse Courant 2018, April 25), page 6.

Herons at Park Esdoornlaan, 2018 April 3 and 7

When I went for a hike this afternoon I saw a heron at the small ditch in the park. Looking for food. After a while he flew away, fortunately I could capture him during his flight.

When I moved on I saw another heron at the toad pool. Finally he got something, a toad or a frog, I can’t tell the difference.
When I tried to get closer he moved a couple of meters so I stopped closing in on him. On the pictures you can see the legs of the toad outside his beak.


Another album with a heron.
Same park, a heron eating a fish and then walked to the other side of the bridge.


Happy Pi day

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
