I guess I could say I’ve crossed over to the dark-side because Twittering is something I said I’d never do. But I didn’t want a mobile phone either (ten years ago). I also said I’d never move to Amsterdam. But never say never. My new phone is exactly the reason I changed my mind and [...]
I ‘slightly’ restyled my ronvalstar.nl site. Partly because I was not completely satisfied with it but mainly to prove a point: in a lot of cases a HTML site is a better solution than Flash. Don’t get me wrong, I love Flash, especially the new features in the new version 10 (although they still didn’t [...]
For a year now I’ve been freelancing. Sometimes on location, but mostly at the studio I share with two other freelancers. One of them has now decided to leave because she rarely used the studio. So, if you are, or you know, someone who needs a place to work right in the middle of Amsterdam, [...]
For the last year Ultrafris (a friend of mine) has been working very hard on the Hyves redesign. It has gone live for goldmemenbers now. If you are not a goldmember you can get a previeuw over here.

Filter Forge is released. Big up to the entire Filter Forge team for a job well done. Let’s hope it takes of like a rocket (the kind that doesn’t blow up). Even though I earned a copy I still want a second license for my machine at work, besides $299,- is a bargain.
It is still a bit of a beta-test but here’s my latest creation: the strip.o.matic. You can create comics with your webcam and send them to your friends by email. Thanks to Quasimondo for the bitmap exporter.
Filter Forge is an extremely cool Photoshop plugin (also works in Photopaint as well as standalone). Besides a set of cool filters you can also create your own in a very intuitive drag-and-drop way. Making your own is almost addictive. I’ve made these so far: threshold-blur, liquid chocolate and the seventies.
We’re really busy at Shapers these days but I found some spare time (weekend) to make a christmas/newyears card. Niels found it a bit cruel to send to clients … but hey clients are cruel to us to!
