I got RickRolled on Queensday IRL

Just a short, personal, non-techie post from the person behind this blog / website. I just got a new (parttime) job as a PHP programmer at WIWI Websolutions. The CakePHP framework they're using is pretty cool and I'm learning it now.

Yesterday, it was Queensday in the Netherlands. It's a national holiday, celebrating the birthday of the Queen. This simply means: A free day with loads of partying.

In the morning, there was a flea market down town which I visited. When I was going through some old vinyls, checking for some "good old songs", I stumbled upon the following record.

Rickrolled

I laughed, thinking that I got RickRolled in real life. I know it's pretty geeky, but seriously: When you listen to Rick Asteley's Never Gonna Give You Up, it'll be stuck for the rest of the day in your head. As you can see, this isn't the vinyl of Never Gonna Give You Up, but from Whenever You Need Somebody. I spended the next hour searching for the correct record, but sadly I couldn't find it.

Here are a couple of more pictures from Queensday in Arnhem that I made with my iPhone.

The browser that destroyed my April fools joke: IE

"Your website has ben hacked! Everything is turned upside down!". One of the more common e-mails that I found in my mailbox today. I think many people actually forgot which day today was: April Fool's day.

For those people who have contacted me with the message above (or a like), a big thanks for you. You're showing some real appreciation for my website. But let this be a lesson for everyone: Be aware of and don't believe everything on April 1st. And which hacker / defacer would take the time to turn all article upside down & add a nice CSS floating corner?

April Fools 2008 on Marcofolio.net

I got the idea of this joke from flip and the upside down ternet router hack. It wasn't that hard to make, but the results were pretty funny. I used some unicode characters that has upside down characters that replaced the original ones.

There was just one problem with this: The more commonly used web browser Internet Explorer 6 couldn't handle Unicode and only displayed boxes / squares. I had to check the browser the visitor was using and if it was using IE, showing upside down images of characters instead of the Unicode. Thanks again Microsoft! And for those visitors who indeed are using IE6, please save the developers by getting another web browser.

Adam's Apple

Who doesn't know the story about God, Adam and Eve and the Forbidden Fruit, the Apple? Wait, why is the word Apple linked to the website of the company that created the iPod, the iPhone, the iMac, the macBook etc.?

This is because here is a modern version of the story of Adam and Eve. Read it, and you'll understand.

The story is pretty funny and has a nice rhyme, but can be a little bit lsfw. By the way, the "Forbidden Fruit" became considered a form of apple, because of a misunderstanding of the Latin "malum", where malum as an adjective means evil, but as a noun means apple.

Joran van der Sloot - "I know what you did last summer"

Joran van der Sloot. A huge media hype in the USA, Aruba and here, in The Netherlands. Why? All because of the death of Natalee Holloway. If you still don't know what I'm talking about, consider reading the complete story or try to follow the news more often.

Because of the new developments, the story is a hot topic these days. The confession of Joran, taped by crime reporter Peter R. de Vries with a hidden camera, has put everyone in shock. Especially the mother of Natalee is stunned of the cruelty of Joran.

A couple of days ago, I placed an article about geeky t-shirts. Now a dutch company has placed the head of Joran on a shirt with the text "I know what you did last summer".

I know what you did last summer

Click on the image to read the full article (dutch). Source: Sp!ts - 6 February 2008 and you can buy the shirt at SMLX.
