Let’s continue where we left off last time. Hardware. In the end I sent my homeserver back to Tranquil to get it fixed. They’ve had the unit for over 2 weeks now, so far nothing has happened. I’m seriously starting to lose faith in their customer support. Tomorrow I’ll contact them again (again) to push a bit. It’s starting to get on my nerves.
Moving on to happier thoughts. I went to Valery’s and she got me hooked on Avatar – The Last Airbender cartoon series. In the meantime I’ve watched all 3 seasons, it was pretty good. It’s a shame it’s over. Going to go see the movie when it comes out, I’ve not really heard anything good about it but I still want to check it out. We also went to see the Prince of Persia movie which was also not bad, quite an accomplishment for a movie that comes from a computer game. I’m going back to visit her next weekend. We’re going to a Japanese restaurant of a friend of hers. It’s been ages since I went to one of those, so should be good Let’s practice those chopstick skills !
I’ve also done something that no one who knows me would expect from me. I went especially to the Netherlands to watch the final match of the soccer world championship. I’m really not a soccer fan (a bit of the opposite actually), but it seemed to fun to go cheer along with the Dutch. Unfortunately they lost else I’m sure there would have been a big party afterward. Of course there were some jerky Belgians there who came especially to Holland to support the other team.
Last weekend we went shopping for TV furniture. The stand we have now can’t really bear the weight of our TV. I was expecting to pay maybe 500 euros max for a new one but the ones that have the room we need for gadgets all cost above 1000. So that kinda sucks. We might go for Ikea again, but I’m a bit afraid it won’t be able to hold the weight as well (our current one is from Ikea also). So there’s some debate on that
That’s it for now
