Last year when we saw the year 2018 out visiting dear friends on the shore of a Swiss lake, Y took to the digital drumkit immediately.

We just arrived, a year on, for the same thing. Y spotted the drums and started jamming immediately again.

I would have treated you to a view of the lake as well, but we arrived today in the fog…

The new Depot of the Boymans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam is becoming an amazing building.
I visited the ThingsCon conference recently in the Nieuwe Instituut across the road from the building site of the depot. Walking towards it I saw the entire Rotterdam skyline with high rises reflected in the building. They’ve only recently added the mirrors to the facade. In the end, the building will have trees on top.

The Depot itself when finished will be opened to the public and allow access to the entire collection of the museum. It’s still a depot, so nothing is curated into exhibits, but you can opt for guided tours through the collection. The regular museum next door will have the curated and temporary exhibits. Rather amazing that you can go see a museum’s entire collection. Like visiting an Alladin’s cave of modern art. Can’t wait until they reopen.

My site’s RSS feed both contains more postings than the site shows, as well as less postings than are on the site. E.g. I post my Week Notes unlisted, so they do not show up to casual website visitors, but they do get distributed through RSS. Vice versa I post things to my site, such as check-ins and messages that get syndicated to twitter, that do not get added to the RSS feeds. I am not at all sure how any of those categories do or do not show up in my microformats feed. It might even be that the h-feed only shows front page postings, which means most of my postings won’t be visible in it, as I only post a selection to the front page.

The discrepancy you encounter (“items missing text”) sounds like something different though. RSS feeds might contain only excerpts of posts, where the h-feed has all of a posting (unless the blog page with h-feed also only shows excerpts). My feed is a full-article feed, but I think the WordPress default might be excerpts only.

Turns out a lot of IndieWeb peeps’ RSS feeds are rather incomplete. Like, if I subscribe to their Microformats feed, everything is there, while RSS items are missing text. Should be an easy fix.
