Yesterday (15th of May, 2017) I finished coding my site for smartphones. Google had already indexed almost all my pages for smartphones, but the letter size was still too large and I had to remove the edge that is visible on larger screens. By accident I got lost out of the search machines earlier this year, because I had fouled up a database. My site was still visible and that was why I did not know that for the search machines it was not. After I had offered it again it recuperated.
In 2016 I suffered from depression and extreme tiredness, which proved to be caused by clotted arteries around my heart. I did some work though and made quite a few notes for my dissertation on Thomas à Kempis. Recently (in March) I had an angioplasty on one artery and together with the spontaneous natural bypass, I can live to some extent. But of course I tire quickly.
some time in 2016. At the end of that year I also hope to have completed the second volume of my course in New Testament Greek. Subsequently I hope to write the sequal to Gospel of Love
, viz. Gospel of Truth
in 2017. After that I am planning to work with some dedication on my Ph.D. thesis about Thomas à Kempis. Before I put it to a professor, I hope to have written the bulk of it. I have already divided it in chapters and made some notes. I am reading the On the Imitation of Christ
in Latin, which is not too difficult.
Today, towards March ultimo 2015, I finished the recoding my site to HTML5. It is far from perfect, yet a bit professional. I do not want to be too good at it, as the Christian message as the contents of the site, is what it is about. I hope that for the first 5 to 10 years it will not be necessary to do such an extensive overhaul. It took me a year to redo the code of several hundreds of pages. I do not use a content menagement system, as I have many individualized pages, which is nice for the layout in my opinion. I employed the Validator at www.w3.org to some extent, to fix overlooked mistakes.
I hope to finish recoding my site to HTML5 before my birthday in June. It will not be perfect, but it will be a huge improvement. When I began 15 years ago in about 2000, I started learning a bit of HTML through looking around at code on other sites. But most of the code I learned then was already old. But it did do the job. Also now I look at it in a pragmatic way, though a bit professional.
I decide not to make music CD's anymore, as people now use USB sticks. Nobody buys them anyway.
Finished the Dutch course N.T.-Greek, both paperbacks and hardcovers. The hardcovers are better to handle, for lighter and smaller; smaller but sharp print. (3 January, 2014)
Today, November 16, 2013, I finished the proof of my New Testament Greek Course. Hope to have it completely ready towards the end of the year.
I am about to finish the layout of my English translation of the New Testament Greek course. Then I hope to switch from Word Perfect to Word, as the italiced Greek does not show in PDF's from Word Perfect
My first CD has been completed! (1 July 2012)
A beginning has been made to make some 'musick' and a little bit of 'art'! (9 May 2012)
Around this date (8th of August 2011) i am finally on my way to putting my ethical theology into writing. what began with a study over many years (from 1981 to this day; more or less interrupted from 1991 to 2010 [but with some continuity and a few improvements during those 20 years]), i now hope to realize in committing it to this website and eventually to a few books in English. i still have a large pile of notes, most of which were written between 1987 and 1991, after the previous notes, made between 1980 and 1986 were destroyed by a fanatical brother (who also wanted to burn most of my then expensive and extensive library [sic!]); but i rewrote all of it and in the process greatly improved them.
I don't know whether i can keep this blog up, we'll see
next year i hope to work on my english new testament greek course. have no idea how long it will take. probly several years to completion. will turn it into a book as well
