anniversary vdP

March 2024 marks 15 years since I was registered as an independent consultant with the Chamber of Commerce and 10 years since I transformed my sole proprietorship into a private limited liability company.

In June 2024, it will be 45 years since I started my working life as a surveyor. 

vdPConsulting website v3.0

In August 2011 a new website was developed in HTML/CSS. A nice slick style with photos and videos. In addition/below that I had a WordPress weblog.

I have to confess something….

Recently I’ve upgraded the website to v3.0 and I have moved away from the HTML/CSS site and switched completely to WordPress. I have chosen the simple standard template 2017.

Plus migration from HTTP to HTTPS

Our internal network consists of a KPN Experiabox v8 router ( Asterix ) in which the fiber network enters and is distributed to an Apple Airport Time Capsule ( Obelix ) our internal WiFi base station in the office. The network signal is amplified by an Apple AirPort Express ( Idefix ) WiFi router in the living room. Now we’ve anywhere in our home and office a perfectly working WiFi network.
