Hoewel de keuze moeilijk was, heb ik uiteindelijk de knoop doorgehakt en werk nu bij Dutch Open Projects, waar ik websites bouw gebaseerd op Open Source oplossingen (PHP, Joomla, MySQL, Drupal, Symfony). Daarom heb ik helaas ook de Mini Cooper Checkmate moeten inleveren. Gelukkig heb ik wel een prima vervanger gevonden!&#13;</p> <p>Sinds 1 september werk ik niet meer bij AEBIZZ E-consultants.

The Checkmate had to go for a big checkup, the one that comes at 100.000 km, although due to large distances it asked for it a little later - I'm now at 110.000. As a loaner, I got an R56 Cooper with what looked like the Chili pack. It had lounge leather seats, a little spoiler and only 145 km on the odometer. After returning the car, I ran into Jesse, my Mini sales guy at Jan de Jong Mini in Hilversum. Having announced earlier I wanted to drive an R56 S, it was...</p></div> Tue, 26 Feb 2008 13:39:02 +0000 eelke 62 at https://blokspeed.net Een maand met Tomtom HD Traffic https://blokspeed.net/blog/2007/12/een-maand-met-tomtom-hd-traffic <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Begin november stond er ineens een bericht op het forum van de Mini Seven Club Nederland; ter introductie van een nieuw product organiseerde Tomtom in de vroege ochtend van maandag 12 november de Tomtom Filerally. Mini's, Fiatjes 500, Eendjes, Kevers en Dafjes mochten meedoen, volgens Tomtom oude autootjes die niet zo snel gaan en het in de ochtendspits dus moeten hebben van een slimme bestuurder. Om een lang verhaal kort te maken (want, daar ging ik geen blogpost over maken, wie het leuk vind kan op het MSCN-forum een en ander nalezen), hier heb ik met de witte Cooper aan meegedaan. Het...</p></div> Wed, 12 Dec 2007 00:00:00 +0000 eelke 83 at https://blokspeed.net Huisje https://blokspeed.net/blog/2007/08/huisje <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Jawel, het is zo ver, ik heb eindelijk een eigen huis gevonden. Het staat aan de rand van Bussum, een gezellig appartementje met een garage.

Although it was a Mini, that was about all it had going for it. So, I asked for and got the chance to order my very own Mini. Exit CR Mini, enter metallic black Peugeot 307, which I had to drive until my own Mini would arrive. You can read about everything related to that CR Mini and everything concerning the ordering of my own Mini2 under the category New Mini.</p> <p>However, this post will not be about Mini's. As the day that I will be getting my Mini Cooper Checkmate and will be handing over...</p></div> Fri, 30 Dec 2005 20:10:52 +0000 eelke 79 at https://blokspeed.net Race Experience https://blokspeed.net/blog/2005/11/race-experience <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>It's been some months since I left webMethods. At my last day, my ex-colleagues gave me a voucher for participating in the Michael Bleekemolen Race Experience; a whole, motorsport-packed day at the Zandvoor Circuit, where you drive all kinds of vehicles including a Porsche 911. Last sunday finally was the big day. </p> <p>To cut a long story short, this was the best going-away present ever. For the long story, have a look at the pictures.</p></div> Thu, 10 Nov 2005 21:05:14 +0000 eelke 78 at https://blokspeed.net Tomtom 5 - Final Word https://blokspeed.net/blog/2005/10/tomtom-5-final-word <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Well, end to another story. Last week I received a phone call from Tomtom support. They had a solution to my problem. They needed me to send them my PDA and GPS receiver, on which they would then install some software that would allow me to use the GPS receiver. </p> <p>As it happens, I bought another GPS receiver only a week earlier, so I was less then excited about this offer, and declined because I need my PDA daily. </p> <p>I was pleasantly surprised, though, when I looked in my inbox today, where I found a reply notification for my support request. In it, they referred to the phone...</p></div> Sun, 09 Oct 2005 21:09:06 +0000 eelke 77 at https://blokspeed.net
