BattleSnake “HeadHunter” update


So i’m entering the battlefield…

After testing solo mode a lot. I added new logic to dodge possible head-to-heads with bigger snakes.
With my longest path mode enabled, i even had some fights where i just won because i was the last snake alive…


But i could’ve ended the game earlier…. how?

By going in for the kill…


I’ve added new logic to my snake to be more agressive… let’s see how it plays out in BattleSnake!


I’m going in for the kill 😀

My debut next week

Hello all!


I didn’t write a post for a long long time, but here goes…

I’m competing in the Battlesnake 2019 Winter Classic!
We are taking Battlesnake tournaments into the cyber-streams with the Battlesnake Winter Classic! This will be a three tournament series running over November and December that will have snakes battling it out for the title of Winter Classic Champion.


Dutch Viper!

My Logo for the Winter Classic 2019

I mainly program in PHP professionally. This was a great opportunity to try something new… so my snake is written in Golang.

I’ll enter the rookie bracket, since it’s the first time I’ll compete (My snake wasn’t ready for the battle last year…)


Wish me luck

When does it happen?



My First Tournament Ever! – Saturday, November 16th @3:00 pm PST.

That’s midnight next Sunday 00:00  (CET +01) for you folks in Amsterdam, make sure the beer is in the fridge this saturday night!

The tournament will be streamed live on the Official Battlesnake Twitch channel.

Housewarming 2018

Hallo vriendjes en vriendinnetjes,

Het is zover. Eindelijk een plek met een “eigen” voordeur (binnenhuis… maar boeiend!)

M’n huisgenoot voelt zich een beetje kut… want…. alles is weg. Maar… ik zit maar op 300 meter van m’n oude stek vandaan!

Maar wacht?!?

Je woont toch inclusief, J?

Ja klopt…! dus voor de verwarming hoef je het niet te doen.

PartyFlow / Planning

Ik ga er van uit dat je genoeg hebt gegeten om de avond door te komen,

whatever the fuck may happen, genoeg donor tenten in Haarlem (I LOVE THIS CITY)!

Je komt even langs, we doen een shotje (kraanwater, wodka, jaeger) op goed geluk in de liefde, leven, gezondheid, woongenot en alle andere dingen die we kunnen bedenken.
Afhankelijk van de beschikbaarheid van stoelen en banken kun je nog even neerploffen, anders is het een “Dutch STANDING circle party”, hopelijk kan ik een FatBoy vinden voor die tijd.

We kunnen altijd nog even naar m’n oude huis als je daar nog geen housewarming hebt gedaan (schaam je! 2,5 jaar! 😉 )

Zeker de 24e is het plan om richting de stad te gaan, want ik ben bijna 3-0. maar suggesties zijn altijd welkom.


in m’n nieuwe stek.

Some people can’t physically make it. You can send a card or digital warm regards. Or fly me in to Bali, Vietnam, Thailand!

Time and date

10 / 17 / 24 Maart 2018 / Pick-your-own-date

Kies de dag dat al je vriendjes en vriendinnetjes ook komen. Of dat je juist die mutual friend kan ontmoeten die je altijd al hebt willen zien. Of juist even stiekem afwachten of die ene niet toevallig op dezelfde dag komt. het is ook jou feestje! Niet in de party mood? gewoon lekker thuis thee drinken, kom ik gewoon nog een keertje langs, of kom gewoon op een ander moment voor een kopje thee bij mij.



Het is geen verplichting om een presentje mee te nemen, een kaart, digitale foto of er gewoon zelf bijzijn (in spirit of IRL) is ook helemaal prima.
Maar wil je toch wat meenemen? Let even op dat nietmand anders je met jou super-cool origineel cadeau de show steelt. de halve ikea leegroven ben ik ook aan het doen as we speak.
roep gewoon even “ZOUT!” (mand!) op Facebook en je bent er, managen binnen de vriendengroep of met de Host mag natuurlijk ook maar is lastiger, zeker als je geen Facebook hebt, drop dan gewoon wat in de comments below of contact me at any availabe medium.


– Food Pounder / AtoomVoedsel
— neem een peper (4 seizoenen) of zoutstel (zeezout molen ding?) mee
— 4 blikken Unox knakworsten? Be my guest!
— Sojasaus, kruiden, boulionblokjes, you know where i’m going.

– Drank! met drank kan je nooit verkeerd gaan (*kuch*)! kan altijd in de kast, en kan je zelf nog op komen drinken als er nog over is…

– Keukendingen
— Slabak, Kommen, mokken, glazen, SHOTGLAASJES, bierpullen, borden
wat is er al? (12 theelepels, een schaar en een kaasschaaf)

— iets tering lelijks van de Action o.i.d. waar ik hard om kan lachen en wat echt “You-And-Me” is.


– je 200 kilo aambeeld van je grootmoeder (wel vet eigenlijk, maar ik heb geen schuur).
– BBQ of BBQ gerei (Ik heb geen tuin)
– Zonnebedden (ik heb geen balkon)
– die oude billy-kast die je nog had staan maar die van ellende uit elkaar valt.
– Meuk uit de collectie “Home is where the heart is”

Bij twijfel:

Bij twijfel –> Vraag en u krijgt antwoord!

of ben je net zoals ik… en vind je dit tering moeilijk om te bedenken, doe niet moeilijk!
Of kom gewoon empty-handed, het is al een cadeau dat je er bent, anders zit er een supermarkt in de buurt die tot 22:00 open is,
Mooie Nel, Life’s a beach of een ander lekker biertje (2! want dan heb je er zelf ook eentje) is prima!

Ik hoor van jullie! RSVP.

Universal Standards: Part 1 (Time)

Part 1: a Time standard

Let’s agree on Time

Time is what?

Google time…


I’ve recently learned about GMT, in Greenwich, London, England, UK, Earth.

GMT is a timezone.




Time Quotes:

“A friend is what the heart needs all the time.” Henry Van Dyke

“Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” Bil Keane

“The problem with time, I’ve learned, whether it’s those first two weeks I got to spend with you, or the final two months I got to spend with him, eventually time always runs out. I have no idea where you are out there in the world, John. But I understand that I lost the right to know these things long ago. No matter how many years go by, I know one thing to be as true as ever was – I’ll see you soon then… —Savannah

Nicholas Sparks, Dear John

And the list goes on…

But… no fear… UTC is here!

Universal Time
That’s our Earth‘s Time from this point onward for me…

UTC. >

Q1: Why is the abbrevation UTC but “Coordinated Universal Time”?

A1: Because of the French

So… until we find any other sentient race then us Humans (Homo sapiens)… This is our Universal standard, IMHO. Then we can either welcome them like Will Smith, or make peace like James Cameron

That’s including our Moon and Mars! (Is local Moon/Mars time already decided?)


SyS. Over and Out.
