  • Powerbook Upgraded to 2GB RAM

    It used to be quite expensive to order a few gigs for the Powerbook, especially from Apple.com – but now Kingston has some proper 2x 1GB ram sticks for the latest edition of the November 2005 Powerbooks. I paid 30 euro incl. shipping. So nice.

  • Create, Merge, Share PDF Documents

    One of the problems in the past with multiple Operating Systems and versions, was that you could not easily share a document from a UNIX machine with a Windows machine, or a Mac. These days this is no longer an issue and great solutions that look beautiful can now be used. Hopefully this blog entry […]

  • Crossover Games and Counterstrike: Source on a Mac

    Yes! It’s possible. There .. that should answer the question of ‘Can I run Counterstrike: Source and Half Life 2, etc on my Mac?’ Now let me explain how I’ve experienced it.

  • Upgraded my ISP Account

    A small update about my ISP account. I do not have an HDTV and won’t be getting one any time soon (unless I get lucky and get a load of money suddenly) so now that my ISP (UPC.nl) has introduced new accounts with discounts it was worth looking into it to see if I could […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 .. […]

  • Top 10 Apple Products

    At this moment I can not browse the web without running into a Top X list, and some are fun or nice to read, but the majority of them are just made without any thought. For example, there was an article on Digg about top25 movies from 2007, but a good handful were all made […]

  • What Goes Where On My System?

    My Mac Pro has a bunch of hard drives right now, and I have been adding, swapping, and removing drives the last few months. It was time for me to get a bit more organized and I think that’s a great tip for everybody. It gives you a much better understanding of what is on […]

  • Organizing Important Information

    Update: Since 2010 I have moved to 1password, because of continues development, browser integration, and iOS support. Strongly recommended! Since I’ve moved away from Windows I’ve found myself wanting to be more organized with the way I store important information such as logins to web sites, private web addresses, shell accounts and what not. In […]
