Overview of GNU/Linux distros
I just read the following nice article that gives an overview of the main GNU/Linux distros
Lectures in the open
Today the weather was beautiful so we decided to do our seminar on game theory outside. We carried a whiteboard and tripod to the grass just outside the university building, and Jan Feitsma gave a talk on duopoly. It's great to attend a lecture in the open! Passants were also smiling a lot at us... :)
Teacher of the year!
Today was a great day, because I won the 'Teacher of the Year (for exercise sessions)' award! Thanks a lot, all my students from Linear Algebra! I already knew for some time I was nominated, and today at the 'award show' I heard I won. All the nominees were supposed to give a five or ten minute talk. I didn't know what to say, so instead I sang a song together with Johan
: 'Het Studentenassistentenlied'.

やった, it's my birthday! I'll start celebrating by sleeping a long long time. :)
I'm an editor for the Periodiek
, the little magazine of our student association the FMF
. This weekend we had 'Perioweekend', which means the weekend we put all the articles into the layout. Abel and I just finished the editorial proces. I'm not allowed to say too much about it yet, but I want to share the following picture with you:
Book: De Eeuw van mijn Vader
The other day I finished reading 'De Eeuw van mijn Vader
', written by Geert Mak. It's about the history of The Netherlands in the previous century. Just like the 'In Europa
' it is written in a clever way and I learned a lot from it.
I recommend anyone who is interested in Dutch history to read this nice book.
I voted 'yes'. Why? I don't know.
