Compacter GMail for netbooks
As I'm temporarily 'confined' to an eeepc, I got tired of losing too much screen space to the unhideable chatbar on GMail.
So, I fired up #Stylish  and wrote this simple #userstyle  to scratch my own itch: 

* {box-sizing: content-box;}
.no {position: relative; width: 100%;}
.no .nn {position: fixed; top: 60px }

/* Left bar */
  /* Contacts */
  .no .nn:nth-child(1) { width:200px!important; bottom: 200px;height: auto!important; overflow: hidden;}
  /* Chat */
  .no .nn:nth-child(4) { width: 200px!important; top: 280px; bottom: 0px; overflow: hidden;}

/* Main */
.no .nn:nth-child(2) {width: auto!important; height:auto!important; left: 200px;}
/* unknown */
.no .nn:nth-child(3) {display: none;}
#\:5 {width: 200px!important;}

(didn't even know that : was allowed in IDs)

inconvenient things always happen at very inconvenient times
Such as the hard disk of my MacBook Pro crashing...
... while I'm visiting +Siw Falch's parents
... without spare hardware
... without any installation media with me
... while only having access to slow internet, so I couldn't even download OSX either
... during easter, while all shops are closed; at least around here.
... with nothing but rain and sleet falling outside

At least I still have Siw and her family to keep me company <3
(and Siw's EEEPC to write this post).

Circles and Home Stream Visibility
+Google+ Help, perhaps you can clarify what the intended behaviour is for the "Show in Home Stream: Amount" settings is when a person is in multiple circles.

If a person is in multiple circles, is the settings with the highest or the lowest amount supposed to take precedence?

In other words, if I would put you in two circles, one where the "Show in Home Stream: Amount" is set to Fewer, and also put you in one where that circle's setting is set to More. Should I be seeing More, or Fewer posts by you?

Alternatively, if I have you in a circle that is set to Standard, but also in a circle where Show in Home Stream is disabled, should I still be seeing posts by you in my Home Stream?

Permanently reject specific Community invitations
Dear +Google+ Help (and fellow Google+ users / developers),

is there a way to prevent being invited to specific communities, regardless of who sends me the invitation?

I know I can mute the user who has invited me, but:
a. I might still want to be notified of +mentions by that user
b. there might be other community members who feel the need to invite me to said community.

Ideally on a Community invitation, there should be not just as "Accept" and a "Reject" button, but also a "Reject and block future invites from this Community" button.

Alternatively, add a Mute this Community option.

FiXato, open source developer, IRC enthusiast, devoted nitpicker.
I'm Filip H.F. "FiXato" Slagter, a Software Developer born and raised in the Netherlands. My favourite language to develop in is Ruby, but I'm always willing to pick up new languages.

If you want to include me in a publicly shared circle, please send me a message first, as I'm not that fond of being mass-circled like that. I prefer people to consciously add me to their circles, rather than being part of a list of dozens to hundreds of other people.

Don't even bother inviting me to religious or political communities.
I have no interest in religion or politics; they usually are equally obnoxious. Please let me be the agnostic I love to be.
If we don't regularly interact on posts, or when I haven't circled you, don't even bother inviting me to a community at all.

Professional life
My last long-term corporate employment was at yoMedia where I did backend development in Ruby, using various open source projects such as Git, FFmpeg, ImageMagick and Rails. Afterwards I worked briefly for the Dutch ISP Networking4All implementing EPP using PHP
For now I am self-employed, looking for opportunities to make the lives of people easier.

Open Source Contributions
I also like experimenting with other programming languages, such as Python, which has resulted in for instance open source WeeChat scripts which help automate tasks in my favourite IRC client.

Contributing to open source software projects is something I aspire to do. An overview of some of my contributions and personal side projects is available at my GitHub page, and my 'gist' scripts list

Personal life
My interests vary from time to time, but retro computers, photography, poetry and digital arts often surface. I love taking my camera outside and capturing things I see. It's part of sharing my view on the world with whomever is interested.

I prefer the nocturnal life most of the time, but can also enjoy bright sunny days. I'm also a fan of science fiction, in particular the TV shows Doctor Who and Star Trek.

  • I am a native Dutch speaker and I consider myself to be fluent in English

  • I am also working on broadening my knowledge of the Norwegian language due to moving to the fair city of Bodø, high up in Norway because of my long-term relationship with Siw Falch.
    Because of this, I have followed the Norwegian language courses "Noors 1-3" at the Volks Universiteit Velsenwhere it was taught by Mrs. Yvonne Vermeulen, which gave me a nice basis. I am currently trying to improve my vocabulary through self-study.

  • I also had to take up German and French while in high school. However, I rarely use these languages, so I can't do more than read simple articles written in either of them, or order a nice glass of Bier or bière. I do kind of appreciate being taught these languages though, as they do help understanding various other languages in the same family.

  • While I attended the Graphical Media Technology study in Rotterdam, I also took up a semester of Japanese, but sadly I've forgotten most of it.

*Kafé België is...* Another one of my favourite bars to enjoy a good beer as well as a good chat. I've marked the _Food_ as excellent mostly because of their *huge* selection of beers from all over the world. They have about 20 beers from the tap as well as over a hundred more on bottle. The staff knows their beers and pours each beer in an appropriate glass and is willing to give you some suggestions regarding similar drinks or food that goes well with it. The food selection isn't as broad though, but apart from typical (Dutch) pub food such as deep friend snacks and a delicious garlic-buttered toastie with red onion (do give it a try!), they at least do serve proper dinner food as well. Menus vary often enough and are diverse, including flavourful vegetarian offers. Unfortunately the pub is rather small, so during a hot day the outdoor terrace usually is too packed to find a spot, and if you are unlucky the few tables inside will be taken as well. Since the place is small, some of the tables are positioned near the entrance of the toilets; as a previous reviewer said: I would avoid those. While the rest of the establishment is clean and well maintained, the toilets are a bit of a let-down. On various occasions the paper towels and/or soap had run out, as well as the toilet floors being wet and/or dirty. _(I'll spare you the details of the stall my fiancée used once, which showed clear signs that a previous occupant had been having her period..)_ After notifying staff about it, they did clean it up though, but personally I feel that proprietors should keep a better eye on their bathrooms, however, I do realise these things can happen. The atmosphere of the pub usually is very comfortable and interesting, with all sorts of people attending. If you are new in town, and want to meet new people, this is the place to be. Looking for a quick bite to eat, or expanding your beer experience, be sure to visit this place and try out a couple of beers you haven't had before! *(Updated on 09 August 2013 due to typos.)*

Wonderful food, stylish and clean entourage, warm, friendly and professional service. Prices might be a bit steep, but you get very good food in return. The dishes are original, well-dressed, colourful and well-balanced. Especially the appetisers were a pleasant surprise as they were a delicious flavour explosion. Their red house wine is also very recommendable. The couple who run the establishment are friendly and know their food well. Overall a very satisfying experience, and would love to visit this restaurant again to celebrate a special occasion.

Café 't Spui-tje is a very cozy and friendly bar where you'll feel right at home. The owner is a real Sinatra fan, and the décor really shows that; lots of memorabilia such as gold records, posters and autographed items. Besides Sinatra, the Muppets also settled at the café, for instance Statler and Waldorf are hanging above the door. Along with the ambient lighting it makes you feel right at home. The prices are fair; not outrageously high as you might find them at some of the other bars in Amsterdam's city centre. Food is good to very good and consists mostly of the typical pub food such as for instance a deep fried snack platter with cheeses and various sausages or a bun with a juicy meat ball. If you don't like a particular kind of food on the platter, they often are happy to oblige to substitute it with something else, which is useful if you have some vegetarian friends. Don't expect a three course dinner though. They have a variety of liquors, wines and beers in stock, and every second Friday of the month (if memory serves me well) they have a German Beer Night where they open a barrel of some imported German beer and complimentary snacks tend to be provided. Service is excellent. The owner is a warm and friendly guy who knows his business and will soon start to recognise you too if you pop in every now and then. The rest of his staff shares this welcoming attitude.

Great food at a decent cost. Quite some choice in Indian dishes with a good indication of how spicy each dish is. Food is served in pans on the table on top of tealights, so the food stays warm. Serves a good variety of drinks. Service is quick and friendly. Bathrooms are clean, though can be a bit noisy.
