Hi, I am Floris.
Upgraded my RAM to 6GB
Yes! I found out I have two open slots on my riser board for 2x 512, 2x 1, 2x 2, 2x 4 or 2x 8 – Well, let’s not get crazy, but .. I left the default 2x 512MB in, and added 2x 1GB later, and 6 months later another 2x 1GB, and the other […]
yum update script
So the other week I have been working on my dedicated box, just to make it a bit easier to work with in the future. One of the things I was trying to understand and learn was yum update and bash scripting. So why not combine the two? Right.. This blog entry is the result, […]
Improving Gmail Security
In a few of my other blog posts I have already used the example of Gmail and https to improve security. But I feel with the recent improvements Google introduced that it is time to emphasize security and email again.
Promising Movies = Pants Wet
As a dork, nerd, geek, computer idiot, sci fi, technology lover, etc .. I can’t help but write down a few promising movie titles that should get your pants wet.

I’ve got some additional information, so I thought to waste my time writing it up. Here goes ..
My xbox360 – Part 1
Here’s my fist post about my xbox360 issue / repair / and hopefully getting it back.
Skype and ISP Quality
Over the last few months I have noticed a drastic decrease in quality over Skype. Regardless if we use one, two, or ten users on Skype, (and I am usually hosting since I have 2.5mbit upstream) we notice some people have excellent quality, and some have very horrible quality.
As corny as it might sound, I had a great time meeting this girl I know online. Ok, now that we have that out of the way. Let’s explain the situation a little bit. So since early this year I’ve been a member on the social lifecasting network Justin.TV and last April I got to […]
It has been quite a few years that I have been enjoying Scrubs and I am following with anticipation the news if they get an 8th season or not, or if the 7th one is really the last one. Let’s hope for the better. But despite chatting about it on forums I have also received […]
Yep .. I jumped the bandwagon and bought a copy for my xbox360 last week and played daily. Since I played daily (and I am not a gamer) you can tell that I like the game. I progress very slowly, because I enjoy driving around town and finding out what it can do and not […]
