Checking EML files for OverijsselLast week, I noticed that Election Markup Language (EML) files with all the information about the elections on March 15 were published by the Dutch government. There is remark that states that the electoral council has not checked the quality and completeness of the data. All the EML files were stored in three zip files. I downloaded those files and decided to check them for the provice Overijssel to which Enschede belongs. I wrote the program Parse_EML_PS2023_Overijssel.cpp based the program I wrote in March. I already verified that the EML file for Enschede is exactly the same as the one I analyzed before. The program did report some errors, but non with respect to the summation of the number of votes being cast on all the candidates of the various parties.

NijmegenConny and I visited Nijmegen. Only in the morning, I discovered that the Valkhof Museum is being renovated and temporarily open at a different location on the Keizer Karelplein. There was a reduced entry price because they only had a small exhibition about the discovery of the Roman temple at Herwen-Hemeling. After this, we walked through the city and visted:
- Bookshop Roelants where Conny bought one book.
- Marienburg chapel where there was an exhibition about fairs
- Bookshop Dekker v.d. Vegt where Conny bought two books and I two DVD boxes with Season 4 and Season 5 of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Duivelsberg and WolfsbergIn the morning Conny and I went to Duivelsberg (Dutch for "the devil's mountain"). On the way there, we made a stop at Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery. We climbed the Castel Hill where in the Middle Ages there was a mergelp. Next we walked to the vantage point from where we could see Hoghelten (which we visited last year) in the far distance. The Duivelsberg used to be part of Germany, but after the second world war it was annexed by the Netherlands. It was the only (substantial) area that was not returned back to the Germany on August 1, 1963. We went searching for some border poles in the area. We found the following poles:
- At 12:32, pole 635.
- At 12:34, pole 636.
- At 12:52, pole 631.
- At 12:55, pole 630-E.
- At 12:56, pole 630-D.
- At 12:58, pole 630-C.
- At 13:00, pole 630.
- At 13:09, pole 631-B.
- At 13:13, pole 631-C.
- At 13:18, pole 632.
- At 13:27, pole 633-B.
- At 13:32, pole 634.
- At 13:35, pole 634-A.
In the afternoon, we parked our car near the hotel and restaurant De Wolfsberg, named after the hill with the same name (Dutch for wolf hill). Conny had bought a book with a walking route starting from the hotel and we tried to follow the description. Luckily there was some map with it as well, otherwise we would have got lost. It was a culture historic walk, which meant that with many of the highlights along the route, there was nothing to be seen anymore. We walked only a part of the whole track and returned to the hotel to have dinner in the restaurant. We went for the 3-course asparagus menu. It was a bit a classy restaurant. The dinner was good but not exceptional.

Next we walked to the 'square' called the Roermondsplein where work has started for a recreation of the 'Blauwe Golven', the largest art work in a public space in the Netherlands, which was designed by Peter Struycken and constructed in 1977. In the past years there were some plans to remove the art work but now it will be recreated and even slightly extended. Work just started a few weeks ago and the project is planned to be completed in 2025 in a number of phases.
We walked through the center of Arnhem and visited the Indonesian restaurant Batavia where we had a dinner and where Peter took a picture of use:

Archaeological Park XantenToday, Conny and I visited the Archaeological Park in Xanten at the location of the Roman city Colonia Ulpia Traiana, which was established in 110 AD and used to be a the banks of the Rhine. Currently the Rhine runs a bit more to the east. On the way going there we stopped at the location of the border pole 593, which is interesting because it is also at the border of the provinces of Gelderland and Limburg which runs almost parallel with the border between the Netherlands and Germany for about 300 meters and with a width of about 30 meters. We failed to locate the border pole. We did find some pole laying flat on the ground, which could have been the border pole, but we did not find any marks establishing this. We walked a little back and located border pole 594. We also drove a road called the Helweg in Milsbeek and parked in Plasmolen to visited the location of a Roman villa, the largest ever discovered in the Netherlands. On the way home we discovered a parking ticket of € 20.00 under the windshield wiper because I had not placed a parking disc behind the windshield to indicate our time of arrival. We had dinner in restaurant Glüxxklee in Kalkar. Conny ordered an organic pork schnitzel and I ordered a falafel burger.

GroesbeekAt the end of the afternoon, Conny and I arrived in Groesbeek where we are going to stay until Saturday. We hired an apparment at 'De Zeven Heuvelen' (Dutch for the seven hills). We had dinner at restaurant: Lee Fo Hook. At their website it says (in Dutch): Get to know the refined Chinese, Indian and Cantonese cuisine.the Chinese, Conny ordered Tipan sam sin (shrimp, fish fillet and crab with vegetables in kon bo sauce) and I ordered Kon bo kai (chicken with vegetables in sweet-spicy sause). We enjoyed the dinner. This is the first time I am staying in Groesburg. I might have traveled through it about fifty years ago. I remember that one day, we took a kind of train, more like a tram, where the train operator was sitting behind a window allowing you to look to the tracks in front of the train. I also remember that it was going to Germany and that we only stayed a short time to travel back. It is possible that this was the train service from Nijmegen to Kleve with an Uerdingen railbus that goes through Groesberg. The railroad was in use until 1991. Since 2018 the railroad between Groesberg and Kleve can be traveled with rail-cycle draisines. In 2019 a fast cycle route has been available next to the railway. We stayed on the balcony of the apartment till ten, reading something and eating some cucumber and cherry tomatoes.

live-bootstrapIn the past weeks, I continues working on the kaem_parser.cpp program, which I developed for analysing the fosslinux/live-bootstrap repository. The output of the program is the page live-bootstrap that contains the actual source of the program that generated it. (Whenever I continue working on the program, the page will be updated.) I have now reached a point that I feel it is rather stable. The output file out.txt that is generated by the program, now does not contain any errors and warnings. Please note that the program only processes the repository up to and including building bash. I expect that implementing a function to parse bash files will be quite a lot of work.

ZupthenConny and I went to Zutphen. We first went to pick up a Phonic MR 1843X mixer, which I bought second hand for € 25.00 because I want to experiment with No-Input Mixing. We walked around the city. We walked along:

ExhibitionsI went into the city and visited a number of exhibitions. I first went to TETEM Art Space to see the exhibition Digital Care: Jeep & Livinus van de Bundt and Steina, which was organized in cooperation with the AKI and LIMA. The two videos Violin Power by Steina Vasulka and Moiré by Linus and Jeep van de Bundt were alternating shown on two cathode-ray tube monitors. (The monitors belonged to a video wall that was installed around 1995 in the lobby of the computer sciene building at the University of Twente.) I talked some time with a teacher from the AKI that was present to answer question from visitors.
Next, I saw the exhibition Compu Compo with prints by Anna Pisula Mandziej at Fotogalerie Objektief and the exhibition of paintings by Ina Wolters at the galery Beeld & Aambeeld. While walking further through the city center, I encountered the Pride Photo Exhibition 2023 and the Street Art Festival. At Concordia there were no exhibitions, but I heard that they were selling the works from their collection because they stopped with their art lending activities. I did look at a work by Hill Boxem.

Foundscape OrchestraThis evening, I went to a performance by the Foundscape Orchestra at the Fictie Frictie Festival, which is organized and held at the area of Studio Compex & Hangarrrrrr. The performance was done by electronic musician Daniel Maalman and sound artist Jasper Schütz, who are accompanied by violin player Brit Issa Rijnen. The performance consisted of three parts. In the first part sounded like an improvisation between Brit Issa Rijnen and one of the other artist 'playing' on the snares of a piano. In the second part she played together with the piano that was producing rhythmic sounds by mechanical relays attached to it. The sounds were magnified and the large room also added it richness to the sound. It seems that Brit Issa Rijnen also sang some bits. I enjoyed this performance very much. The third part was in a different room, the long hall under the hall where the newspaper printing press was installed. There were many sound (noise) making devices around another piano frame with relays attachted to it. People, I myself included, walk a bit around the room, as the pillars obscured some parts. During the second half of the performanced, I decided to dance a bit to even more enjoy the performance.

ZEIT_SPANNENI went to Nordhorn and visited the former building of the sawmill, in German called sägemühle, that now houses Atelier Sägemühle. I went there to attend the opening of the exhibition ZEIT_SPANNEN with nine paintings by Carina Schüring. It is more than five years ago that I attended an exhibition of her works and she definitely has made some interesting developments. She still balances the line between figurative and abstract, although there are also works that are clearly figurative or abstract. I was surprised by the her use of geometric shapes in her works.
The Last WitnessI also went to see the exhibition The Last Witness with works by Heba Y. Amin (هبة يحيى أمين) at Städtische Galerie in Nordhorn. The exhibition also included the works: Project Speak2Tweet and Atom Elegy. The two-channel video projection The Last Witness is about the ghost town La Güera, which lies near the most south part of Western Sahara.

Finals cataloguesI decided to have a look at the book KABK Eindexamencatalogus 2005/2006, which is ahout the students of KBAK that graduated in 2007. There are eight editions of this catalogue, each of which is sorted on a different property of the students. The version that I have is sorted on phone number. There is no introduction and also no description per department. Each student has been given one sheet that is only printed on one side. In the outside margin of the printed side, the eight properties are mentioned together with a number indicating the position of the student in the sort. For my edition the numbers with the phone number act as a kind of page numbers (where only the right pages are numbered). I found the following students and/or their page interesting:
- Frouke Wiarda
- Marleen Rekelhof
- Marieke Korver
- Sofie van Dam
- Nicola Kirkaldy
- Merijn Heikens
- Suzanne van Soest
- Mischa van Pinxteren
- Zohreh Kiahady

I also had a look at KABK Eindexamen catalogus 2005/2006, which is ahout the students of KBAK that graduated in 2006. All students were given two opposing pages to be filled. In the margin at the bottom of the page some basic information is given about each student. I found the following students and/or their page interesting:
- Julia Casianova
- Maurits Fennis
- Michela Pelusio with Lightspeaker
- Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec
- Ron Alexander Bos

Finally, I had a look at Eindexamen 1996: Academie van Beeldemde Kunsten Rotterdam, which is about the students of what is now called Willem de Kooning Academy. The catalogue is in black and white. Most students are only given a part of a page. Through the middle of each page, there is some vertical perforation, allowing you tear of each page. I found the following students interesting:
- Maria Gabriela Davalos Array
- Evelien van Vugt

Dune 2 trailerI watched the Dune: Part Two | Official Trailer trailer. Here is my break down:
- Scene of Paul and Chani on a desert top. Paul says: 'It is breathtaking. Where you see sand here, imagine water. When you dive in you can't reach the bottom.' Chani replies with: 'You dive in?' and Paul continues with: 'Yes. It's calling swimming' where she reactis with 'I don't believe you.' It is on page 285 in Chapter 33 that Jessica talks about water falling from the sky and flowing over the land. On page 305 in the next chapter it is Chani who asks Paul to tell her about the waters of his birthworld. On page 367 of Chapter 40 she asks the question again. She has come from the South to see Paul ride on a worm for the first time himself. Again Paul does not answer her question. It is possible that scene also happens shotly before Paul rides the worm.
- WB logo
- We see Jessica travel in a palanquin on top of a worm and next we see Princes Irulan saying the words: 'In the shadows of Arrakis lie many secrets but the darkest of them all may remain.'
- Title: 'Beyond fear'.
- Shot of flame thrower on a large pile of bodies. (Most likely a Harkonnen solder burning bodies of Atreidies people.) The voice continuing: 'the end of house Atreidies.' (As far as I know, these text are not found in the book.)
- Shot of Jessica (without facial markings) saying: 'Your father didn't believe in revenge.' (I cannot find those lines in the book.)
- Title: 'Fury will rise'.
- Shot of Irulan, saying: 'What if Paul Atreides were still alive? She might be walking side-by-side with Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam.
- Shot of Gurney Halleck lowering a pair of binoculars.
- Shot of Feyd-Rautha.
- Shot of red glowing dessert.
- Shot of Rabban.
- Shot of the Baron.
- Shot of a mounted gun firing.
- Shot of a figure rolling down.
- Shot of Chani looking someone in the face.
- Shot of a lady in a dark dress, Lady Fenring, I understand from other sources.
- Shot of a fingers being placed in four glowing holes in the wall.
- Shot of people turning towards a dark tunnel.
- Shot of a bottle with water. Probably the water of life. In the book it is carried in a skin sack.
- Shot of Paul grabbing a knife getting into a fight with what looks like a Sardaukar. This might actually the scene in which he reunites with Gurney.
- Shot of Feyd-Rauta shouting to a slave in the arena.
- Shot of Jessica opening her eyes, which have turned blue during the transformation of the water of life, which is described in Chapter
- Title: 'From directory Denis Villeneuve'
- Worm riding scene starting with Paul placing a thumper. We hear Chani asking: 'Did you ever have a dream riding a worm?' Stilgar saying 'Don't try to impress anyone' (taken from the line 'you don't have to impress anyone with your courage' from page 370 in Chapter 40.), 'You're brave, we know that' (taken from the line 'We know you are brave'), 'Be simple, be direct.', and 'Nothing fancy' (from the line 'Do it simply and directly -- nothing fancy.') Paul answering 'I understand' and 'Nothing fancy'. Paul has no blue-in-blue eyes yet, which, as some commentator may indicate that this happens earlier in the film than in the book. Although the fact that it looks like Chani is wearing a Nezhoni scarf (the scarf-pad worn at the forehead beneath the stillsuit hood by married or "associated" Fremen women after birth of a son) might indicate it is much later, like in the book.
- Title: 'This year'.
- Shot of eleven ornithopters.
- Shots of Feyd-Rauta fighting with slave in arena,
- People in dresses, probably the Fremen reverend mother or even Jessica (as see is seeing to wear a similar dress in the teaser trailer). The words of 'You will never lose me, Paul Atreides,' being said by Chani.
- Shot of Paul and Chani kissing.
- Title: 'Long'
- Shot of girl sitting in a circle of light.
- Shot of Irulan with jewelry over her face.
- Title: 'Live'
- Shot of an enclipse of the sun with the two moons.
- Shot of the faces of Feyd-Rautha and Lady Fenring approaching, most likely refering to the fact that she mated with him after the fight in the arena to preserve his bloodline, might he die. This is mentioned on page 322 at the end of Chapter 306.
- Title: 'The'
- Shot of someone running in the desert.
- Shot of surprised looking Chani.
- Title: 'Fighters'
- Shot of person (Paul) riding a worm.
- Shot of Jessica saying: 'We gave them something to hope for'.
- Shot of Paul replying: 'That is not hope'.
- Shot of Paul looking down on a large crowd.
- Shot of Paul and Fued-Rautha and Paul saying: 'May your knife chip'
- Shot of Paul holding a cris knife. 'and shatter'. page 457, the last chapter.
- Shot of the crowd again.
- Title: 'Dune'.

Each department has its own chapter in the book that starts with an interview of a student that graduated in an earlier year. Each student was given one page in the book and seems to be given complete freedom in how to fill it except for their name and a page number. I found the following students and/or their page interesting:
