Facebook stole my blogging mojo.

... I'm just after realising that it has already been 6 months since I last updated this blog - and then even just to say its been 1.5 years ... so ...
2 years - I blame Facebook!

Let's see if we can get this old blog going again.

People who know me and who want to comment on any post, are invited to do so on facebook (...) that way I can keep comments switched off here and not open the gates for all those spammers who are flooding a lot of blogs out there.

If you don't know me and would like to comment, I suggest you look up the contact details and send an email. If its SPAM or looks like SPAM to the SPAM filter, I won't get it - too bad.

So ... December 09 2010 - missed 3 wake up alarms this morning - nuff said.

Roads are lethal - or more specifically the people driving on them - had some near misses on the way home, shocking.

Also closed my PayPal account in the light of this wikileaks witch hunt that is currently taking place. I know it won't hurt PayPal as much as it'll annoy me buying stuff online, but hey - its a statement, that's all.

Other than that - same old story. Work, eat, sleep ...
No gameport on Vista - who'd have thought?

... so after half a decade of using only Linux for my non-work-related IT, I was trying to get this gameport-steering wheel running under Vista. Turns out that MS removed the gameport support altogether and the creative driver hack doesn't work. Looks like the Vista drivers of my sound card are making sure this remains a futile attempt.

So now what - usb adapter? :-/

I really wonder what MS gained from removing this hardware support. Its beyond me.
