On TomTom POI’s

Last weekend I went to Antwerp to shop for clothes, followed by a visit to the world’s best frituur, N°1 in Antwerp city. It’s been years since I was there, seems they’d expanded and the fries were still as good 😉

However, after that I found it was time for some gas, so I entered the nearest Shell station in my TomTom. Alas, after driving for a bit, and circling the place where this Shell station was supposed to be, decided this was a wrong POI entry. Selected the next closest Shell, drove there, NO Shell. Getting a bit pissed off I stopped at a Total we passed and fueled up. (however I prefer V-Power above Excellium 98).

This was not the first time TomTom let me down, earlier I was driving through the Netherlands and craved for a Whopper… I had to try 4 times to find a Burger King, but all POI’s turned out to be fake, there were no BK’s around there anywhere.

What value do these things have?

Additional Bluetooth Drivers for Microsoft Bluetooth in Windows XP SP2

I was looking for drivers for one of my bluetooth sticks, lost the cd years and years ago, but finally got my usb ports in order on my new workstation, and wanted bluetooth. Apparently nothing wanted to support it, and all webpages seemed to indicate I should be using Microsoft’s XP SP2 stack… alas, no driver. Until I found this:

Additional Bluetooth Drivers for Microsoft Bluetooth in Windows XP SP2.

I just installed the MSI they offered for download, and everything started to work. Note for Google: Vendor ID 1131 Part ID 1001 (Vid_1131&Pid_1001) was my bluetooth stick and it’s working with this MSI installed.
