In August of 2015, Tim Urban, the author of Wait But Why, was invited to give a TED Talk. Here’s his full story on how to do a great talk – or wing it during a informal speech… .
After many months of use; the sound level of my B&W C5 in-ears was starting to degrade – to the point where even with volume control turned all the way up on my iPhone, music or conference calls became hard to hear. Clogged!
Google did not have any good results on how to fix this. Common suggestions for in-ear buds include cleaning with a cloth, a soft brush and some detergent (lukewarm soapy water, alcohol etc). This did not work for me – the fine metal mesh in the in-ear piece appeared to be stubbornly clogged.
While some users reported successfully opening the earbuds with a vice and pliers, that seemed too destructive to me.
Luckily, I tried the following as a last resort: carefully sticking a needle in the mesh allows to exert enough pulling force to remove the screen from the earbud.
Taking out the metal screens allows me to clean them easily, fully restoring the sound output to its original, glorious levels.
After cleaning, the mesh screen can be easily placed back in its original position. In my case, the remaining glue residu was sufficient to keep it in place, but you could carefully add a small amount of glue to be safe.
“Want to make sure you nail your 2015 resolutions? Make them public, psychologists advised.” Consider this a brain dump first and a way to create some accountability to myself second. Anything else is a bonus. So here we go!
This is a work in progress. Until 31-12; I should be able to edit, right?! Any suggestions or helpful hints are welcomed. I may have to order these goals somehow at one point…and maybe do some pattern recognition to look for a deeper coherence?
We mogen weer!!!
Een nieuw blog via Deloitte.nl over veilig open Wi-Fi gebruiken.

So suppose you are interested in developing a basic website. Without special technical training, let alone security specific know-how, but armed with Google and some terms you heard a friend throw around you get started.
Today, saying “no” to a end-user is close to saying: “go ahead without company oversight.” So while not supporting BYOD may feel prudent in the short term, it may set your company up for larger problems down the road.

After a quick lesson from our local espresso guru in Nijmegen, I concluded that my espresso grinder was just not grinding fine enough to pull that perfect shot.
The grinder was already on its finest setting, so I was tempted open it up and see what adjustments I can make.
Luckily, it is a very simple device. It is easy to see the limiter screw in the shot below, and it is just as easy to move it one hole further.
Apparently there has been a batch that do not adjust fine enough.
And now just one more Espresso…
Gisteren was ik te zien bij Opgelicht?! op NPO1; aardig item over de (on-)veiligheid van open Wi-Fi netwerken.
Ik zie net dat op DutchCowboys.nl mijn blog over de gelekte foto’s van afgelopen weekend gepubliceerd is!
In dit blog probeer ik een aantal lessen te trekken voor security managers, maar op een leesbare manier.
“Niemand geeft om de feiten”
Wie zich zorgen maakt over de eigen accounts:
- Zet 2-factor authenticatie aan waar het kan (o.a. Gmail, Apple ID, Twitter, Dropbox en Facebook)
- Gebruik 1Password of LastPass om complexe passwords te onthouden voor andere sites
- Sommige dingen bewaar je misschien het best niet online, of alleen met een extra laag encryptie. Bijvoorbeeld in een zip file met password.
- Gebruikt een plugin als https-everywhere om zo veel mogelijk HTTPS (veilige verbindingen) te gebruiken op het web
