Anne van Kesteren

Back from Kenya

Spent a week in Kenya together with my brother, Remy van Kesteren. It was really, really great. Three days of diving, did a nice boat trip and went on safari (obviously). Some day I would like to write something about traveling and post pictures and such, but I’m too tired at the moment and probably too busy in the foreseeable future. (Yeah I know, lame excuses.)

As always with holidays there is this thing called backlog. About 370 unread weblog posts (I skipped 90 from Scoble right away) and about thousand e-mails. Good thing I went during Christmas and the New Year I guess. Anyway, happy New Year (again). Oh, by the way, what do you get when you cross a hedgehog with a giraffe?

Also, by Remy: Terug uit Kenia.


  1. A long necked toothbrush

    One for work:
    What du you get when cross a turtle with a donkey?
    A Norveigan wearing a helmet!

  3. Very glad to have had you on my continent! Glad to read you enjoyed your visit. Luckily there's no (serious) war going on in Kenya at the moment.

  4. That sounds like a painful toothbrush to me. ;)

    Kenia sounds interesting, you must have a nice tan now?

  6. Welcome back, and happy new year.

    By the way, isn't this your handwriting in Remy's source code? ;) And why is he allowed to benefit from a language definition (via lang), while you don't specify it for the entire page? (AFAIK, there's no default specified in neither the HTML spec nor in any RFC - but I wouldn't wonder anyway if you could surprise me here.)

  7. If everything is still correctly set up the language of this page is set through the Content-Language HTTP header.

  8. Anne: You should have both. I don't want to link to Working Drafts but Authoring Techniques for XHTML & HTML Internationalization: Specifying the language of content 1.0.. You can probably find more ("informal") resources on this; although this isn't fully standardised yet (as far as I know) it's probably a good idea to follow these guidelines. I do.

  9. Well, blah. While I agree that may be nice and all that, user agents are required to check for Content-Language. So really, I couldn’t care less.

  10. Ok, so you counter my Working Draft with another. Cool. :)
