Politics

I try to keep this blog only on the technical side and not discuss religion or politics, but this seems like a nice site, that involves us all: http://www.us-election.org go post your vote.

Windows XP SP2 (Dutch)

Ik heb in mijn referrals gemerkt dat ik nogal hoog scoor op google als mensen zoeken op Windows xp sp2 en dutch (ofte Nederlands). Windows XP SP2 Dutch is beschikbaar voor download.

Minor Upgrade

 Over the weekend I was forced to upgrade. This new version (29.2) was released on a strict yearly schedule and not quality based like the Microsoft Products. Some new and exciting features have been added over the year and many existing features have been improved considerably.  In honour to celebrate this happy event, and while reflecting…
