And in other news...

... On holiday at the moment, my brief but pretty cool experience with the big red train is over.
(or it is purple.) I have a feeling I'll be seeing a couple of the girls again soon.
My new job at agency begins on the 14th. Wohoo, I'm back to being an Account Exec. (although this job title is used for just about anything these days. So, you will all still have no idea of what I do - or don't do all day!!)
Actually slightly excited.

I miss Liz right about now. I'm not really looking forward to doing the job without her.
We will work together again, Sm, we will! :)

... As this was a subject on previous one of these, those pillows I mentioned. LOVE 'EM.
Finally, I have found pillows that do what they are supposed to (- unlike the mattress).
And (and this is big news!!) I have at last left the clan of the futon lovers and have restored my bed back to its normal height.
Nice one Ikea, a grand total of 11 months to get an order right. (Although I must say they were very amiable and helpful in their incompetence.)

... I ordered a nice new toy. The Mvix MX-760HD. I surely won't appreciate the wonder of this little box, as I would need both a nice HD screen and decent video quality from my files. And I have neither. But basically I bought it so that I could finally stop having to burn my TV shows onto dvds or cds (depending on which one of my drivers was feeling helpful that day), and just send them straight to my TV through the Mvix. I can also put all my music (and all other media) on it. It should give me some respite from my current storage space crisis.
Today, the 4-6weeks are up. So where the hell is my bloody Mvix?!?! :(
(first ebay purchase, coming from Canada)

... Going to see Cirque du Soleil on Sunday. The show, Delirium, is coming to the SportPaleis in Antwerp for only two days. Not only will it be the first show of its kind that I'll be seeing, but also in the biggest concert hall. Very excited!!!

Hey nice one! that new toy of your looks great. As for quality, just down load the full 4.4Gb dvd torrents, they're just a video_ts folder full of VOB files, AND you get your full quality vid with full 5.1 surround. I just have a stack of em on an external drive that I stream to my cinema system through FrontRow. Oh and expand your collection when you rent or borrow a dvd using MacTheRipper to extract the dvd to your HD (it also strips any region coding from the disks making them playable anywhere)

Oh hey, since its coming from Canada, will the frequency of the video output be ok?

errr... I assume so, his geekness would have thought of that.;)
(I hope)
