BloggingAbout .Net meeting?

I’ve been thinking: would there be any interest for a bloggingabout .net meeting among the bloggers? We are all into .Net and most of us seem to enjoy a good discussion. Maybe we can organize a platform for those discussions in real life in stead of through posts and comments. It could be about anything, …

Thank you, my friend …

After years of loyal service, I’m going to sell my current digital camera. I’m interested in buying an even better one (7.1 MP), although the Sony DSC-S85 I have now (4.1 MP) has brought me lots of great  pictures. It accompanied me on several holidays and events. I’ve got a few Gb of images to show for it…. …

Media Center Trouble – Gone!

Sometimes things aren’t as difficult as they seem… After some extra reading, and searching on gathering.tweakers.net, I found that everything I had done was correct. The only uncertainty was my graphics card. I went out and bought me a faster one (a Radeon 9550) and everything works well! As I am typing this, the same machine is …

Media Center Trouble – Part 2

Ramon’s tips helped me a bit further, because they enabled me to test some of the settings and try where the problem is. I now encounter a very nice but weird phenomenon: when I use DualView on my NVidia card, I can drag Media Center to my TV. This works and shows up properly. When …

Media Center Edition trouble

It’s been a while since I’ve been blogging, because my project has been extremely hectic. Now I’m enjoying a week off, so I’ve got time for toys now… 😉 One of these toys was going to be Windows XP Media Center Edition. I installed it, bought a compatible TV card together with a MCE remote and …

Here we go – summer 2005 edition

We landed in Eindhoven this morning after a great holiday in Turkey. I’ve done some resting, got a tan and I’m ready to go for the rest of this year… And not only at my job: I’ll also pick up on blogging about .Net again. While on holiday I had a strange encounter: we were looking at …

Leaving on a jetplain…

I’m leaving for a 2-week holiday next sunday. Or actually, I’m going to a childrens camp as group leader for a week first, and after that I’m in need of a holiday ;). So then I’ll be leaving for 8 days of sun in Turkey. I’ll be back august twentysecond, but the two days after that …

Trying to find the right new look

We finally made the change to Community Server here at bloggingabout.net. Because of this, some stuff will change. One of them is the appearance of all the blogs. And I’m not entirely happy with the way my blog is looking right now. I guess it takes some getting used to. Maybe I’ll switch a little the …

Hair

Last weekend I went to see the musical Hair at the Stadsschouwburg in Eindhoven. It was played by an allmost all American cast: only the male lead was a Dutch guy, if I understood correctly. (Normally the female lead was Dutch too, but that role was played by someone else last saturday.) And I have to say: it …

Upcoming change

Soon bloggingabout.net will switch to new (and better) blogging software. Because of this, the URL to my blog (and any other blog at bloggingabout.net) will change. In stead of bloggingabout.net/username, all blogs will become available through URLs like bloggingabout.net/blogs/username. Don’t worry if you can’t remember: the old URL will keep working for a while: it …

Almost 40 people visited our apartment in Eindhoven, so it was pretty crowded in …

Wanna see my star?

Questa star-listed me on his blog (together with Frans Bouma!). He wrote: “De blog van Gump is nog jong, maar tot nu toe voor mij in iedergeval al de meest gelezen weblog” which roughly translates to “Gump’s blog is still young, but is the blog I recently read most.“I’m flattered Questa: thanks! I’ll try to keep up the …

A*%holes

They stole my leather jacket this weekend, containing my wallet and my keys. Assholes. First thing I learned as a kid: leave other people’s stuff alone! Why is it some people simply don’t have the decency to work for the things they want? I do… Just like all of my friends. And although you might …
