On June 22nd, there's gonna be another so called 'Longboardtog' which is a cruise through the streets of The Hague, Netherlands with police escort and a DJ on a truck in front of the pack of longboarders :)

Should be lots of fun with all kinds of riders young and old!

I'm just getting to know Inkscape and my hands are itching to get involved. But since I'm not a diehard programmer, I'm trying to think of other ways to help. 

I figured I could translate the Wiki to Dutch for starters.

I've subscribed to the translator mailinglist, but I reckoned I could ask here to see if the translation to Dutch is actually something that's really needed before I get into it.

Any other suggestions or tips are welcome too of course! :)

Last Sunday, the last "Longboardtog" of the year was held in The Hague. It's basically cruising through the city with police escort and a DJ truck in the front. :)

A longboard crew made some footage and I figured I'd share this with you all.

Expanding a bit on what +Charlie Joslin posted earlier, it might be handy to post some minimalist design related sites.

On June 23rd, there's gonna be tour through the city of The Hague, Netherlands with only longboarders. This means police escort, a DJ truck in the front and cruising down streets which will be clear of cars... It's just for fun and the route is about 12 to 15 miles I reckon. :)

Registration is required, so for that and more info check http://www.longboardtog.nl!

(Just showing you all that events happen around the world ;) )

Join the club. Oh well, I don't do much tricks anyway, I just ride distances (transportation) ;)

So... Since Saturday, my wife is now in possession of a longboard now too. She has never stood on a board before, but I'm teaching her. In one hour she learned how to push off and stand on her board and ride that out. :) Sounds corny, but I'm really proud of her!

She's got a Landyachtz Totem Bamboo, Paris 180's and black Tunnel Tarantula's (from my Tunnel board). It's a really smooth ride :)

So, I've been busy building a jQuery plugin to prettify forms. I know there are more plugins out there, but I took this on as a learning experience mostly.

It's now in a state that I can show you all and I would love to hear feedback. I want to know what's good, what's bad and what can be improved for performance. :) Like I said, I want to learn!

It's all in Git:

For a live demo:
http://lab.robertvanderelst.nl/proforma/

p.s. There's still a few glitches and the demo isn't perfect ;)

The textarea is a dummy for now, so I didn't style it (yet)

There's still work to be done but I'm glad you like it so far! :)
