PS3 & PS4 storage space

Gaming. Review.

I'm the proud owner of an original PS4, a first generation model, which has served me fine for the last 3 years. There were two things I didn't like much though: disk space and noise.

I couldn't fix the noise (cleaning will help probably) but I did fix the storage issue, though it was sometimes hard to find clear information.

HBO Max - Game of Thrones - Season 1


I guess I'm one of the last persons on this planet to watch Game of Thrones. The advantage, of course, is that you don't have to wait a week for the next episode... (Thanks to Netflix binge-watching has become the norm.)

Jim Butcher - Storm Front / Fool Moon / Grave Peril


These are the first three books of The Dresden Files. Wizzard PI battles wolves and vampires and the IRS, all for a mere 50 bucks an hour.

Sluipverbruik ronde 3: de WHR 950 (Dutch)

DIY. Dutch.

Hmmm. In mijn vorige post rond sluipverbruik had ik niet de juiste waarde voor de WTW. Ik heb op zolder een Stork / Zehnder WHR950B WTW unit. Dit ding gebruikt in stand twee geen 60 maar 120 W. Ouch!

Ik verbruik dan weinig warmte, maar dit kost me wel 260 euro per jaar aan stroom...

Keep Calm and free House Elves

In 2000 there were just four Harry Potter books. 3 books and 19 years later it's clear Rowling still doesn't care bout them...

I haven't seen the new movies, but it's time I (re)watch the old ones and watch the new ones. As for the elves... Maybe Inverarity will address the elven's plight? Yeah, he's working on the next Alexandra Quick book again!

Helen Harper - Box of Frogs / Quiver of Cobras / Skulk of Foxes


What do you do when you find yourself next to a beheaded corpse? And discover you're actually a fairy, in love, and somehow blamed for all bad things happening?

Wakiewakie v1.44 - a more comfortable WOL tool for Windows

I've updated Wakiewakie to v1.44. On some laptops Windows was reporting a successful ping even before a network connection was properly established. The new 'all' parameter fixes that.

If you need a comfortable WOL tool for Windows, Wakiewakie might just be it.

Steed and Mrs. Peel


Hmmm. Mrs. Peel. Was she ever married? To whom?

(My first scheduled post for 2019. Blogging two years and nobody's watching, heh 😎)

Audio Infuser 4700

Completely useless... but beautiful in its own way.

It looks like the creator's website is down, but if you simply google for Audio Infuser 4700 you'll find more images and videos.

Look Ma' what I found! Or... the Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K

Call it an early spring cleaning...

And here's what I found: a Sony Vaio PCG-SR1K. Also known as the PCG-SR33K (I never was able to figure out the difference between the two).
1999 if I recall correctly. A 20 year old laptop... and still working!

Wired for sound


Well, I've finally done it. I've ripped all my CD's to the hard drive of my private server. I've got multiple SqueezeBox players as well as compatible apps on all iPads, phones, and PC's. Music everywhere.

I'm wired for sound.

Size matters... (the world is getting bigger)


It does! (And Ant Man and the Wasp proved it 😅)

The world is getting smaller, or so I always thought. I (we) have been living in a world with ever increasing possibilities. Distances are still the same, but travel times have decreased greatly.
