Wow! After my little success with the cuff links, my RSS-feed-subcriptions went through the roof!

Now, that came down just as fast today so I guess the guys over at feedburner got a little lost in counting my subscribers or I’m not sure why it jumped like it did.

Anyways, for everyone who did subscribe to the feed,

Welcome! *^_^*

What is it you can expect here?

This is my personal page, I try to post whenever I can, but this is not a business (...yet ;-)) so expect some inconsistency in blogging.

Next to that, since a few months I changed from blogging like everyone else does on the 44 million blogs out there to post more or less personal posts using almost only own genuine home-brew content. I choose that above daily updates.

And further, in my normal RSS-feed you’ll also find my pictures I post to my flickr-album and links I bookmark in my del.icio.us. If you somehow don’t like that, try my RSS minimal feed, that one only has updates on this page.

Anyways, without you, my dear readers, this wouldn’t be the site it is now. I would probably be a geek-hermit instead of a geek-rockstar (that is a joke) so thank you all! *^_^*

and if you have anything (and I mean anything) to say, please do so (in the comments for instance).

    Hey mark, I’m one of those 961 readers. The cuff links hype bring me there ;) I subscribed to the feed yesterday. I like the design and the fact that i’ts a personal thing.

    For blogs, I’m all for home brew content and inconsistencies! ;)

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi Mark!

    I’ve stumbled upon your page some time ago when I was searching for some documentation about disk-based encryption. I found your OpenBSD tutorial, but it didn’t help me, because I’m a Linux man. :) However, I subscribed to your feed and read back all the old articles. :)

    I can only repeat Danulk: keep up the good work! :)
