Way to early in the morning once more, but my on line banking still had to be done and the looming dread of unpaid bills had overshadowed me in my dreams. So at about five thirty am I allready had bitten into the sour grape and got my stuff done. Enough money to buy me a small Powerbook went 'poof' as once again its time to pay taxes. I HATE that ! … But the good thing is I found this cool hack on line how to turn your pc into a terminal server.
Remote desktop hack : As you know : With remote desktop you can log into an xp machine remotely, but the bummer is that the currently logged in user gets bumped out. Not with this hack ! It enables you to tweak XP in such a way that it will accept one LOCAL user (who is behind the keyboard at the machine) and TWO remote users to connect to the machine at the same time. For me personally this opens up a great realm of possibilities. Imagine using my high end system as a 'terminal server' that is mainly used as a media center (recording video, playing mp3"s and so on) and whenever we need XP-Computing-Power we can connect to it with our MACS via remote desktop :)Of course i'm gonna try this out ! I just Have to … Here is the link my geeky friends.
Don't you just hate it when you have to send large files over the internet ? I mean .. anyting bigger than two megabytes is a bitch to pump over the lines. One just cannot cram it in an email (for gods sake : that technology is for TEXT only actually) Not everyone has an FTP account where you can up and download stuff for them. So whats left ? Doing your own file Bar-Mitsva and cutting the file into peaces ? Or perhaps the other hard-timer : Waiting for your contant to come on line and sending it via Instant Messaging.
Free one gigabyte online file storage : Or you can use : http://www.thebox.net its an on line ONE GIGABYTE file storage service that lets you store your stuff ON LINE for FREE. So up to One gig its free (mind you : the files you upload are only allowed to be 10 megs per file if you use the free account). Payed accounts go upto 5 gigabytes. You can also make certain 'folders' in your box and share these out to the world. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me, certainly with all this cool web 2.0 stuff flying around. Now you can use a wordprocessor on line, and store your files on-line too. Who the frack needs a harddrive anyway 🙂

One of the great things of being a cyber-citizen is the fact that one does not need to worry about the weather. If its hot or cold, sunny or rainy.. I seldom give the preverbial excrement because … I'm inside too much. So my fiancé decided to take care of that.
Combine your brain and your GPS : Me and Nyana had a lovely lovely easter weekend this week. Doing some shopping in Hasselt on Saturday, lounging out all day long sunday and going for a wonderfull trip to the seaside on monday. And we could not have picked a better day. Great weather, nice cappuchino's.. you know the drill. And as usual when we got back : Traffic jams ! Now one of the tricks here is to use technology in a way that IT works for YOU and not the other way around. As everybody around me followed their GPS blindly they all ended up in the same traffic jam. The trick is to disengage the GPS system but let the 'map view' run. So you can see an actual map from where you are. Next zoom out untill you see your possible destination and calculate your own shortcut. Now I must say it takes two to play this game. One looks at the map and calls out directions, the other drives. But what do ya know ? It worked like a charm. We cut in in front of the jam an were on our merry way. (plus having the privilege of hearing the most sexy gps voice ever : my fiancé). So letting tech work for you does not always mean you have stop thinking. Sometimes disengaging 'the auto' and flying manual with instrumentation can get you farther .. faster …
