Over at Jut blogt you can read an alternative version of the christmas story, which I actually prefer above the original ;)
Yesterday I had some good old fun trying to replace the backup battery of an Acer Travelmate 803 laptop.
… waking up at 6 in the morning, because you hear a certain sound you associate with water that’s coming under high pressure from a tap.
I’ve been having a weird issue with the motherboard on my pc. The first time you boot it in a day, it was very likely to freeze on you – either after the USB started flopping on and off, or the sound starting cracking, and so on… not very fun. Solution: power off the power supply for a minute, power it back on, and it would be good to go for the rest of the day. It’s not an unknown issue (see t...
Woohoo! Another milestone reached:
Yesterday, when walking through Ghent, we discovered a new shop specialised in coffee and tea: Simon Lévelt on the Kleine Vismarkt (nr. 5) in Ghent. It’s a small shop easily passed, but really worth a visit.
Yesterday, Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Oddysey” and other great works, passed away at the age of 90. He’ll be sorely missed both by the science community and the millions of fans he had.

A few weeks back I finally decided to get me (yet another…) new phone.. and I decided on the Motorola V3. Coming from using a multitude of phones from different vendors, this one took me the longest to get used to. It has a different style phonebook, the menu system is totally different, … Intuitive, yet different. The manual, on the other hand, is totally crap. Half of the things aren’t explai...
… and on this fair day, my trusty ‘old’ USB Logitech optical mouse ceased to process electrical inputs.. henceforth it shall go to silicon heaven with all the other mice and electrical appliances.
Had the pleasure of installing a good old box (pentium 200 with 64mb of ram and a 2gb disk) for a friend of mine who gives them to the lesser fortunate ppl.
