The blog is dead, long live the new blog

I've decided to move my blog to Wordpress instead since Blogger doesn't seem a priority to Google.

My new blog is here:

This space is no longer inhabited

Just a quick note to let anybody who gives a damn that from now on I'll be posting all my ramblings, no matter the topic, in my other blog.

Keeping more than one blog is too much work and I hardly have time to update just one so I'm doing a merger.

If you don't know... Now you know!

Why isn't this guy locked up in an institution?

First of all, how the hell can anybody be a Zune fanboy? I mean, take a look at it. It looks like crap, and on top of that just like everything else from the big Satan in Redmond it's a handicapped device weighted down by DRM and functionality that only works a little bit (such as the retarded song-sharing). It's ugly, stupid and the claim that it was the "iPod killer" is the silliest ever.

But still, there's people actually delusional enough to willingly call themselves fans of the device. The most radical example of a Zune fanboy is the wacko with all those Zune tattoos and apparently now he's taking it one step further - he wants to change his name to Microsoft Zune!!!

This guy is beyond retarded. I'm really at a loss for words here. It almost makes me want to buy an iPod just to counteract his "Zune-love".

What time is it?

Seriously now, what's up with all these huge clocks that seem to be a part of every piece of software these days? These things are everywhere!

Windows Vista's desktop gadget application? Huge frickin' clock. Google Desktop? Huge frickin' clock. iGoogle homepage? Huge frickin' clock.

Has every computer user suddenly become half-blind or forgotten how to read the ordinary clock that's been part of desktop systems for twenty years now? I don't get it.

Mine! All mine!

Bought me a new, although used, computer the other day. I've been looking for a machine to use as a fileserver (running NFS, Samba and such) and stumbled upon an auction for a dual-processor PowerMac G4. I really love the way those boxes look so I decided this was to be my fileserver.

The specifications for this model of PowerMac are not that impressive, 450MHz processors hardly scare anybody even when they come in pairs, but there are some pretty neat upgrades that can be made for a reasonable sum of money and that would make it a fairly powerful beast.

I won the bidding however and I'm picking it up on Tuesday next week. Yay me!

So much for selling your soul to the devil Novell...

Begun the Linux wars has...

As reported and thoroughly investigated in this article on Groklaw a lawsuit has been brought to Linux-distributors Novell and Red Hat. In the article a good case is made for who's really behind the lawsuit (no, it's not really the plaintiff IP Innovation..) and you guessed it, it's Microsoft.

This should come as no surprise though. We all know that Microsoft are scared shitless of the little penguin that could, particularly Steve Ballmer it seems. In my opinion, unlike in the SCO-case this time they're not even trying to hide that it's them behind it all. The trail back to them is not very elaborate and good 'ole Stevie B. even predicted that a lawsuit was on it's way just the other day, which makes it look like he said "we could do this" and then went on and proved it. Not very smooth if they really were trying to remain the secret backer of yet another patent-claim catastrophe.

Interestingly enough Apple were previously attacked by IP Innovation with a similar claim and apparently have now paid the patent-trolls in order to keep them quiet.

Novell must be damn proud of themselves right now. First they sell their soul to Microsoft and now they're being stabbed in the back. Nice one, Stevie.
