In Memoriam: Marcel Oud

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/01/19

Last night, Marcel Oud – a friend and inspirator – passed away at the age of 47.

Suffering from Cystic Fibrosis, he carried his fate with optimism: every moment for him was a gift (hence the “present”).

He had two famous quotes, characterizing his life long battle:

  • “ziek zijn is slecht voor je  gezondheid” which translates into “being ill is bad for your health”
  • “ons leven is wat onze gedachten er van maken”, which translates into “life is what our mind makes of it”.

He and his wife Sandra enjoyed playing and listening to music – especially percussion – very much.
Marcel was conductor of the Percussion Ensemble at Harmonie “St._Caecilia”, Lutjebroek for almost 20 years.
Shortly after he stopped being conductor, his wife joined the percussion group at Drum- and Showband Adest Musica, which Marcel was very proud of.

Eventually having to live by the day, the hour and even minute, his optimism stayed.

I’m proud to have known him, as he taught me a lot about the mental things in life.

I wish his wife Sandra, family and friends all the best.

Fritz!BOX 7340 Firmware-Version 99.04.86 issues

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/01/19

It seems that Fritz!BOX forgot to test some of their model 7340 Firmware-Version 99.04.86 features with the English language.

If you have any of these problems, then the solution is to switch the device to the German language, and reboot it:

  • WLAN connected devices cannot connect to LAN devices (no ping, telnet, RDP, SMB, et cetera)
  • You get HTML error messages and HTML trash in your browser when configuring IP-settings for a specific LAN device
