Yesterday when I left Hoofddorp for traveling home again, I felt not that good. I was extremely tired (slept very bad the night before…. darn flies and mosquito’s!). My throat was hurting and I had a little fever. So just not feeling that well.
I was happy that Marion picked me half way home up and drove me in her car home.
Finally at Marion’s home, she prepared a very hot bathtub for me and that did a lot good to me. As Marion’s attention did me good as well.
Today I feel a lot better. We have been to a sauna to sweat out my fever. And I must say, although my throat still hurts a little, I feel as said better.
I also have been working on my computers today.
My “old” Pentium 4 is now empty and I will prepare it for someone I know who will be very happy with it (yes, it a bit older computer, but it is still in very good condition).
My duo core desktop is now my second computer (oh my…. I am running duo core only now :P). It will be most be used for storage, MSN and downloads.
My new laptop I prepared so that I can use it with a 19 inch TFT screen and my wireless keyboard/mouse. Also I installed some things I still needed… as iTunes, Office XP, driver for my printer and alike that. All my pictures and music are on it now as well.
I will be looking for a docking station for my laptop, but this already a good begin.
Also I did spend today some money for my laptop.
I bought a nice small external hard disk. I will be using this to install Linux on (by booting directly from the external hard disk I don’t have to alter anything on my laptop and that is something I prefer at the moment). Linux is important for me because we use that a lot at the company I work. Linux provides a complete C development environment. Also I will install Ingress on it. Ingress is an Open Source SQL database.
Also I can now access the Internet with my laptop where ever I am in the Netherlands. Well… almost everywhere (tunnels under Schiphol airport and the area between Amersfoort and Apeldoorn are well known for bad mobile connections). As I travel a lot that is very handy for me. Nice thing was that I could combine it nicely with the current contract I have for my mobile phone at the moment and so this will cost me just 10 euro’s per month.
Tonight Marion and I will go and something nice. I leave it all up to her…. I won’t be disappointed :P
