Hear ye, hear ye !
Big news … which is also a bit of old news since I think most people already know this. But I’m going to be a dad ! Yes me, geeky Jorn, is going to be a dad. I’ll let that sink in for a little while
Didn’t fall off your chair ? Excellent So far we don’t know if it’s going to be a boy or a girl, but we MIGHT know on Monday. We have an appointment with a new gynecologist then. We are probably changing hospitals because we aren’t very happy with UZ Gent and their impersonal approach. Hopefully the one we are going to on Monday will be better
Also good to know: the baby is expected in the beginning of February.
Talking about babies, Tom2 & Kaat had their baby boy last month, Titus. Awesome name. It’s really a baby boom with a lot of my friends, I guess that’s what you get when going on 30
On to other news and where I left off last time, my home server. Tranquil has it in their possession for over 2 months already and they still don’t have a fix. They claim that they have the problem with all of their home servers and are trying to find a replacement for the internal PCI SATA card. It keeps dragging on. Yesterday I was frustrated by it and made a post on WeGotServed, a well known site about home servers. This morning the owner and Microsoft MVP posted that he would contact Tranquil and see what’s going on. Maybe that will help speed things along. If that doesn’t help, I’m going to demand a full refund (chances are they’ll refuse though) and just get an HP. I’m really fed up with this.
So on to the good news: it’s vacation time ! 2 weeks of no stress, well maybe a little bit of stress I did manage to already do most of my chores though. Treated all the wood that still needed to be treated, so we’re good for a few years. Tomorrow I’m leaving for Holland for 3 days and next week I’m going to Limburg (province here in Belgium) with Katrien for 2 days. So yeah, good times I’m also fully enjoying the release of Starcraft 2. That game was sooo worth the wait ! We’re having regular LAN parties and I’m sure we’ll have them for a long time to come
Last Saturday we also had a party here in the neighborhood just like last year. A great barbecue and for once the weather was actually ok. We were having a champion barbecuing over and it really was very yummy
Well I’m off to eat, till next time !
