GR 412 Sentier des Terrils E1: Eijsden — Blegny — Micheroux

I decided to walk the GR412 – Sentier des Terrils — a walk along the coal mining axis — and thus spoil tip (Terril) axis of Wallonia. The GR runs from Blegny, close to Maastricht, to Bernissart, on the French border.

Ik heb besloten de GR412 – Sentier des Terrils te lopen — een wandeling langs de kolenwinningsas — en dus steenberg-as van Wallonië. De GR loopt van Blegny, bij Maastricht, naar Bernissart, dicht bij de Franse grens.

GR 412: Terrils visited

I am walking the GR 412 – Sentier des Terrils.
There are a lot of terrils (slag heaps) in Belgium, about 740 in Wallonia alone, mostly lying on the Liege ­— Charleroi — Mons — Lille axis. The GR 412 follows this axis.

Below is a list of terrils my walk put me on, or directly next to. There are many more I have seen.

The list will be updated as my walk progresses.

Upgrading, no, Killing my media PC

I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 as media centre, with beamer attached.
It played most movies well, but some stuttered. It turned out this box doesn’t have the oomph to play movies. Adding a graphics card would help that.
Today, I tried to add that graphics card, succeeded, and about 3 minutes afterwards, killed this pc.

Installing WordPress Multisite with different domains

I own a few domains: IIVQ.net (this has always been the host for my e-mail-domain), citrastructurae.net and it’s brother xn--citrastructur-ggb.net (see) and urbanandrural.net. I made a few posts on citrastructuræ, but wanted to keep that page for it’s subject while also writing about the tinkerings I do, mainly to serve as a memory to myself so I know what the hell I did 2 years ago setting up that raspberry pi or kodi system. IIVQ.net pointed to the citrastructurae.net page, but I wanted it to contain it’s own blog.

Because I have chosen the cheapest package at my webhost antagonist.nl, I can’t install multiple wordpress blogs, nor do I really want to. Enter wordpress multisite (I recommend you read that and Before you create a network thoroughly before going on). However, I have found the installation non-trivial.
