Lucky shot

Once every year I have a lucky shot. Maybe you recognise this?

I take pictures with my mobile to remember a family setting, a nice view, a holiday or special event. The pictures serve their purpose, when I see them I remember the event, the place, music, strange smell, or nice conversations. But once every year I discover a picture on my mobile that sticks out. The picture shows more than the initial purpose.

Ms Pac Man is still alive

Remember when video games were best played on an Arcade machine? I was triggered by a post on Arcade games to check if it was possible to play Ms Pac Man one more time. It turned out to be really easy. After looking at a couple of options, I downloaded MAMEUI64, which is a "Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator", meaning that it's software that can play original arcade games from multiple vendors.

Google text to speech

I was looking for a text-to-speech solution for one of my projects to provide narrative to an educational animation video. The video’s are explaining how to perform certain Scrum sprint events. After trying a lot of sites and software, I ended up with Google's text-to-speech. It's really impressive how the sentences are so close to being natural speech.

Thank you Boris for the nice DJ tag

A year ago I bought a second hand Native Instruments DJ set (Traktor S2 MK2 & F1) and started fiddling around with it. This summer a young friend of the family made a nice “tag” using FL Studio and Google’s text to speech engine. You can listen to my "DJ Oscar" tag, which is included in this six track 125 bpm "quick mixing practice" recording (at 1:08 / 3:14 / 4:10).

Old school VBA coding

Een tijd terug heb ik in Excel-VBA een tooltje gemaakt die het DSS resultaat stroom-diagram van de KNLTB volgt mbt rating bij het dubbelspel. Het was een goede oefening om meer gevoel en ervaring met VBA "programmeren" in Excel te krijgen. 

Deze code zorgt ervoor dat je alvast kijken wat de impact is op jouw rating als je wint of verliest in een dubbelspel.
