High speed internet

Got a mail from Chello… they’re doubling speeds 😀

That means my internet connection goes from 3Mbit down, 256kbit up to 6Mbit down, 512kbit up… Other changes are the 4Mbit/384 going up to 10Mbit/768, and the 5Mbit/384 (which I have at work) goes up to [b]16[/b]Mbit down and 1Mbit up! Very nice, finally a decent connection 😉 (10/10 would be fine too though)

Been pretty busy at work having almost no time for other stuff…. except Need for Speed Underground 2 which I’ve been playing for a while now. (see below post ;)) Fun game 😀

Power went out on friday… one machine didn’t come back up… sucky. This means my fileserver is down, which also holds a virtual machine where IPG’ers can get online from 😉 Gotta fix this soon…

Went to InterXion saturday to put a Wake on LAN card in my server… turns out it doesn’t have a connector on the motherboard and the onboard LAN doesn’t support it… So this thing will never wake up if I reset it through the APC MasterSwitch :'( Did see the use of a serial console though… went to grab something to eat and then saw Alien vs Predator… which was actually nice and relaxing to watch after a hard day’s work 😉

Went to eat out with “the boys” yesterday… that was fun. We decided to do that every monday 🙂

Diana is coming to Belgium soon… Yay 😀

Now, back to work to work to work…

Need for Speed Underground 2!

Finally released… Looks a *lot* better than the first one 🙂 Only a pity that sometimes my PC doesn’t seem to be able to pull all the rendering off… slows down considerably at some odd moments (not a lot of cars on the road or anything) 🙁

Anyway, lots of improvements, very nice game :d (if you enable autosave, otherwise the abundance of questions gets annoying pretty quickly) and the outrun races ROCK 😀

Short week

Hm, long time no update here again… Diana was here last weekend again 😀 and she got a job here 😀 😀

Saturday was ISP-kart day.. met some new people… saw some other new people from far away… gave up my place to someone else so I could stay with my sweety 🙂

Belgacom annoyed me to no end with their PhoneMail… had to look for ages for instructions on how to turn it off… tried a bunch of answering machine numbers which could all change different settings… Anyway, 1920 to turn off PhoneMail.

Friday is my first vacation day 😉 This is a short week, only 3 days of work..
