Fresh lime soda 

Tags :

Around 24 years ago , we were enjoying a fresh lime soda at the Venite Bar in Panaji, Goa.

We’ve covered substantial ground since, and time has flown by, but my memories are still as vibrant and intense as my feelings for you today.

Happy ❤️ anniversary!

The Venite Bar is still open today and remains one of my favourite places in Panaji – and selfies were called self-timer shots at the time.

During our Indian trip, one of favourite tracks was “St. Teresa” by Joan Osborne on Fabienne’s Sony Walkman 😎

Recent Logs — or the next 10 entries

Well, they might not be all that recent. You'll find the older entries in the archives.


    While this strange year is coming to a close and New Year reflections and resolutions are popping up here and there, I would like to take the time to thank a client who has become a friend, and with whom I share many of my interests, passions and obsessions: Lionel Egger.

  • 2021 optimism

    Great illustration found on Instagram this morning.

  • Flashback

    I’ll be honest, I was never a supporter of Flash taking over entire web pages, or sites. I felt it as a coup against the open HTML/CSS web. Having learned most of what I know by looking at other people’s source code, I considered Flash as yet another black box.

  • My favourite podcast of 2020 : 20 Macs for 2020

    Over the course of this Summer, Jason Snell at Six Colors announced his project to “[…] construct a list of the 20 most notable Macs in history.”

  • A certain kind of person

    Apple presented a great movie clip on the greatness of the people behind the Mac.

  • Apple One is not (necessarily) worth it out of the US/UK/AUS/CA

    Apple launched its Apple One service bundle on October 30th, which brings together apps like Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade and some extra iCloud storage.

  • Apple Airpods Pro replacement program

    Apple has finally acknowledged tha Airpods Pro issues I described earlier this year and has launched a AirPods Pro Service Program for Sound Issues.

  • Subscription is the new black

    I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel subscription fatigue. There’s a limit to how many I can add to my credit card.

  • Name Mangler : a hidden favourite Mac app

    Name Mangler by Many Tricks is a life saver when you have batches of files to organise and rename, and it’s super fast (and revertible). These actions could all be performed on the command line or via a shell script, but it’s so much faster to launch Name Mangler and get on with whatever you are trying to achieve.

  • Protein Spotlight gets its comic strip

    Last year, Vivienne approached me with the project of adapting a collection of Protein Spotlight articles into comic strips, both in English and French versions. The Geneva-based cartoonist aloys lolo was to create them on a monthly basis and eventually publish a book as well as set of posters. Could these comics be easily adapted into Protein Spotlight’s existing website?

So, we are off to South East Asia again. This might be the last time (or not) Emma comes with us. Mathias is off to Myanmar solo, and to Indonesia with Célia this Summer, so we decided to explore Cambodia, eventhough it’s the wet season.
