Hi, I am Floris.

  • PageRank Went Down

    Today I read on vBulletin.com that Google’s PageRank has been updated again. So I bothered to take a look. Let me start by saying that I do care and do not care about page rank. It doesn’t bother me a bit if a site has 1 or 2, or 4 or 6 or 10. But […]

  • Using my Mac Software

    When dealing with data such as a video file, audio file, text document, spreadsheet and such, I have always been told to use a office solution of some kind. Something that ties things together. So when I moved away from Windows to a Mac solution I have purchased additional software solutions to replace for example […]

  • I Forgot To Blog Today

    Oh my, so sorry. The other day I kind of implied I would make up for slacking, but I had a busy day, went to bed, woke up late, and continued my todo list. I run into the item of writing a blog and realized it’s already nearing midnight. Woops. I still have so much […]

  • Kitty Got Scared

    Ok, I have to admit, I wasn’t so nice to Sasha, but it was funny!

  • CES 2008

    CES 2008 has started and all the tech sites are going crazy over it. They’re posting the thinnest and largest monitor, the easiest new devices and the super cool technology etc. Personally I am not impressed, but I should be.

  • Secure Browsing Using FireFox

    In an earlier blog entry I kind of promised to come back to explaining how I try to be more secure about how I browse using FireFox. So here it is. First of all there are two different ways I do this, one is on my Powerbook (laptop) which I bring with me and therefor […]

  • Using Moodblast

    [Update in 2016] It’s been years, and I no longer use or recommend this tool. I thought the blog post was fun enough to keep around though. Maybe consider something like Hootsuite now? Over the last year or so I have been signing up on one social network after the other, from MySpace (ugh!) to […]

  • Tired

    Today I just can’t deal with nonsense, so I am staying in bed feeling sorry for myself. I didn’t sleep last night due to my shaky eyes, woke up every other hour with an increased headache. Spend the day ignoring a migraine and felt like shit each time I ate something. Life can suck it, […]

  • Catching Up on Christmas Dinner

    Because I was enjoying (cough) the flu around Christmas I invited my parents and my sister over for a catch-up dinner. We’re just getting together and having a nice dinner. Nothing fancy. We’re ordering it from a catering service so no fuzz or anything.

  • Windows Oh Windows Why Are You Such A Pain

    Today I’ve tried to work on installing BootCamp 2.0, doing a 32GB partition for Windows XP Pro with SP2. Boy oh boy, that cost me a few hours of nothing but frustration. After a lot of screwing around, a lot of reboots, a lot of forced shutdowns and a lot of swearing towards Microsoft .. […]

  • Getting Finances In Order

    Through the last summer and especially the last few months I’ve had a bit of a rough spot when it comes to my finances. And I won’t go into detail to ensure that I won’t bore anybody with the specifics, but .. now that the holidays are over it’s time to revisit my pile of […]

  • Die Hard And Fireworks

    Yes! The HDDVD Box with the four Die Hard movies has arrived. And it’s the 31st of December today, which means that we are enjoying enduring an evening of old classic movies or Christmas movies, and top100-everything lists on TV, speeches and musicals before we start having fun with friends and family, set of fireworks […]

This blog is just a little bit of me.
