In the closet

      2 Comments on In the closet

Finally, my Asus EEE Box B202 has arrived. It is a very small computer, with its main property that it does not consume a lot of energy. This way I can get to my files and manage my downloads while I am away from home. It is conveniently stored in my hallway closet next to my wireless router and ADSL… Read more »

I finally caved in. I could not sustain the pressure anymore. Everyone has one, or knows someone who has one. With the end of the year bonus I had to buy it. So I finally have my own Wii! I am practising my tennis very hard. I need to be top notch when I am going to compete with my… Read more »

Since I live on my own, I was trying to have less cables as possible in my house. Every room had a phone wired to it. All are now removed and replaced by two simple DECT phones.

This site was hosted on a VPS I rented with a couple of friends. Of course we ran in some problems. Lots of times we had to reboot our server because it ran out of the memory we shared with other VPS’s on the same machine. At least that is what I understood about it.
