I was about 16 when i first read about Oak Island, it was the first book posted below (it’s from 1979 and i still got it, it already was a few years old before i got it.). It was mysterious and about a place that still existed and i never forgot about it in all those years.
I even wanted to build a model to understand how it could have worked, with the drain system and the ‘boobystraps’.
In 2014 a series started on History Canada about trying to solve this mystery.
I still watch it whenever a new episode is posted.
A few years back i’ve been playing with Unity and Unreal. I’m really a beginner, but it would be nice if some community effort was made to get a Oak Island in a game engine where you can explore some of the things they found.
Another book i got some years later.
- Je hebt wel iets te verbergen
- Missing microbe’s
- John Cleese
- Michael McIntyre
- Komt een vrouw bij de hacker
- The cathedral and the bazaar
- Ons feilbare denken
- Singularity is near
- Randall Munro books
- Dat wordt niets met Bert Visscher (read, see other post)
- Ultimate Cigar Book
- Oak Island
But most of the times manuals/howto books about beer, fermenting, computers .. reference guides.
We used to have a lot of books, but when Monique moved out she took a lot with her. And i’ve got a lot of digital versions of books now. We needed the space, so i got rid of the paper ones.
I’m using Calibre and Calibre in server mode, to access my ebooks and comics.
I use fbreader a lot and sometimes the calibre webreader.
My tunebooks are in there also, and i’m using my DIY bluetooth pageflipper to flip though the pages. (Other post)
Calibre in server mode

g --port=8008 --enable-auth --auth-mode 'basic'
# To manage users

# Server is behind a reverse proxy
Some comics i’ve collected are:
