Things I did yesterday (135)

I’m writing this from my iPad while I actually should be packing for our annual Into The Wild hike. Yesterday I finally finished the specs for an event calendar. It’s not so funny to see how quick things can get complicated and how hard one has to fight to make things simple again…

After work I went to get the meat for our BBQ later today in Germany and then I rushed to Knokke. Rushing isn’t that easy when there’s a shitload of crappy drivers in front of you!

Knokke must be one of the furthest away outskirts of Belgium and god knows why they put it there. Probably a metaphore for ‘only the persistent get what they want’. In this case: a testdrive with the Renault Twizy.

The Twizy is a futuristic car the size of a motorcycle. It’s not that futuristic as Messerschmidt and BMW built similar cars right after the second world war but it runs on nothing else but electric power. It can reach a top speed of 80 km/h and brings you 80 à 100 km far with a full battery. Don’t try to do Brussels-Knokke-Gent-Brussels with it, you won’t make it. It takes around 3 hours to fully charge the batteries. Basically, it’s only good for soccer moms with one child as there is only one seat behind the driver and not even room for a soccer bag. Hmm. Ok, it’s only good for city yuppies with 7.000 euros to spare.

Afterwards, I networked a bit about building apps and then I drove to Ghent, an hour later than planned. That’s what plans are for…
