A real-time journey through the Apollo 17 mission. Relive every moment as it occurred in 1972.

jquery.smoothState.js lets you add transitions to eliminate the hard cuts and white flashes of page loads that deface the beauty of the user experience.

Bram.us is the technical/geeky weblog of Bram Van Damme (nicknamed Bramus!), a 31 year old geezer raised in Deinze and living in Vinkt (Belgium) with his son Finn and daughter Tila.
Professionally — after having worked as a web developer for several years at several web agencies — Bramus became a Lecturer Web Technologies within the study programme Professional Bachelor ICT.
Having worked in education for seven years he – in 2015 – moved on to become part of the team at Small Town Heroes (Ghent, Belgium) to build groundbreaking solutions that make watching TV more interactive than ever. Bramus also freelances using the 3RDS moniker.
