Just wanted to make a new post here.
All is OK for now, all my PCs are feeling OK.
I wish I was feeling that good.
Will try to update tomorrow.

Another tiny update

I forgot to say, I’ve bought a USB based charger Energizer Duo. It works as expected, but the driver is buggy. The clock sometimes shows crap. I tried to recharge (well, not completely recharge) 2 GP 2100mAh AA cells, the charger overcharged them, so they got hot as hell (and the clock was showing 1:40 left !). It charged 2 included enegizer 800mAh AAA cells wayy longer than 2h as was promised on the package.
I connected the charger to a powered hub, now the batteries recharge faster. It seems that the usb port in my pc doesn’t have enough juice to charge batteries faster.
The charger also works with my wall USB charger and car 12V to 5V USB charger.

I also bought a blinkie a few months ago. I now found a better use for it. I now use it as a decoration for my secondary monitor (the one virtual PC uses). The blinkie uses 3xAA cells which keep running out after a few days. I connected the blinkie to my second USB wall charger and the blinkie worked (the charger dropped voltage to 4.35V). I had to add a variable resistor to avoid overloading the blinkie as it was too bright. I made an usb plug for the blinkie from an old usb cable. I’ve tested and the blinkie works with computer usb ports too as the blinkie is LED based and default 100mA juice from usbport is enough for it.

One bad new: my phone’s lcd broke and the warranty is void. I will now have to pay for the repairs.

A tiny update

Simply wanted to update.

Well, VM is much more stable now.
But I see that our main system is running out of diskspace and that is not good.
Don’t have any extra cash for harddrives now, so I have to remove some stuff (removing duplicates now) from them.
Well, nothing more.

Update !

A not so small update:
We have a new address: and my contact email is dds[alpha]
Some other news:
Our virtual PC keeps crashing due to recent VMWare update (bugs, bugs, bugs…) always due to problem in usb driver. Waiting for the fix, but VPC is still usable, it crashes rarely, but these crashes are annoying as I have to reboot it (I could just let it restart instead of showing a BSOD, but it hangs on boot then)
Second: remote access to has died due to lack of bandwidth. Please do not visit this site. Also, do not hotlink files through our new domain, this doesn’t work due to our host restrictons.
P.S.: I guess you know what [alpha] means, as I do not want spam to my website mail.
