A new chapter has begun

It is amazing to be part of the birth of a child… A totally new experience which i followed closely. There are 3 kind of people: the ones whom are informed, the ones whom are under informed and the ones whom are over informed. I am one of the under-informed ones, and my wife rather over-informed, all in all a good balance ;-). I’ll keep this blog post rather short, an extended version might come in later. Without further ado: We are proud to present: Our Family (extended) Gender: male Name: Sietse Rein van ‘t Veer Birthday: 22/01/2017, 21:24 Weight: 4150 gr Length: 54 cm...

I’ve started my own company 0

I’ve started my own company

Posted by on January 28, 2016, 9:18 PM in Rein, Technologie

And then the time arrived to put it out there: I’ve started my own company. It has been a dream for a very long time, but I never really came around to actually do it. Being in Denmark has its benefits and starting a company is one of them. Denmark is extremely good in supporting startups in many different ways. Thank you so much for that ;-). After reading a couple of articles about being a startup in Denmark I finally pushed myself to actually make my dream come true. Of course I’m still in the very beginning of the whole process, but at least the start has been set. And then to answer the obvious question: it’s a web hosting/consultancy company. The reason for starting up something like that is 2 fold: 1- I love being a system engineer and administrator. It has been a part of my life and I would not want to miss it for anything in the world. and 2- as a web hosting company my physical location is not limited in any way. I can do this from everywhere in the world, the only thing I need is a decent internet connection and I’m set. Some of you know I’ve been doing the same...

Boot Camp number 2 4

Boot Camp number 2

Posted by on May 3, 2015, 8:23 PM in Bible College

And then there was another … Boot Camp! Unfortunately this time no biking but hard core walking. The theme of the week was “Dry Bones” and this had some implications for our journey. As we were ready to leave Moïse gave small speech and explained what our goals for the coming days were. We were going to walk 30 km (which wasn’t too much in my opinion) and this without eating and drinking the lunch we prepared just before he started his speech. That way we could train ourselves in keeping our faith based on our character. So, divided in groups of 5 having a pretty decent map and the above average noise our group left at 9:20 AM to our destination. GPS turned on and there we went. The members of my group were Caressa, Luca, Mara and Loise. After walking for about an hour my left foot started to feel painful because I just did not have any decent shoes to wear. Around lunch time everyone started to feel his or her empty stomach (except for Luca, he already ate with the excuse: “A sandwich like this would be a waste to throw away”, a saying from his grandmother). At some point we decided to sit down...

Drobo FS – Why I use it 1

Drobo FS – Why I use it

Posted by on April 27, 2015, 3:44 PM in Rein, Technologie

On a cosy Sunday morning, when I was just checking my mails (as I always do before I get up). I saw a disturbing message in my inbox… My long forgotten DroboFS  (4x 2TB and 1x 3TB, installed at my parent’s home attic) had sent out a mail with a critical disk error. I use this device everyday, mainly for storing my backups (TimeMachine) and storing my pictures and video’s. Together with my Asrock ION 330 it is the perfect storage solution to use Kodi (formerly known as XBMC). I myself know enough about storage and software to be able to set up my own server and ZFS pool and I did do this in the past. But: I’m amazingly happy about the fact I did go for Drobo. Why? As you just read there was a disk error. As I only have 1 disk redundancy I panicked a little, I went to my default web shop for disks, ordered a new disk (figured I could go for a 4TB model instead of the 2TB model that broke) and let it ship to my parents. The next day the disk arrived and I asked my totally non-tech-savvy father to replace the disk. He unpacked the disk, went to the...

Road trip with photography

Posted by on April 14, 2015, 11:41 PM in Photography

Last monday (13th of April) we went on a road trip with the people of the school who enjoy or want to learn more about photography. We went to the west coast in Denmark, through a couple of small towns (which apparently are officially called cities) and ended up (thank you Apple Maps) at the Nationalpark Vadehavet. Afterwards we went to a small town called Ribe and gave (and received) some tips and tricks for low lighting photography. Here are some of my shots...

All pictures have been after edited in LightRoom 5, a program which gets me more and more excited with all the possibilities and options. Long live the internet and all the guides which you can find...
