9Lives.be: B.M. wil van downloadlimieten af

“Vincent Van Quickenborne, Belgisch minister van Economie en Innovatie, streeft naar een afschaffing van downloadlimieten in ons Belgenlandje. Dit als reactie op een studie die bewezen heeft dat België slecht scoort op gebied van internettarieven ten opzichte van onze buurlanden.
Als we de lijst bekijken die door Test-Aankoop in een onderzoek is samengesteld die ons de ranking geeft in prijs/kwaliteitsverhouding van internetproviders in Europa, staan Duitsland, Frankrijk en Nederland aan kop. Ook Groot-Brittanië heeft zijn plekje aan de top veroverd. Als we echter kijken waar België zich bevindt op deze lijst, zullen we zowat helemaal onderaan moeten gaan kijken.”

Belgian minister wants to get rid of download limits.
Cause Belgium dropped way down with the tariffs/rates ISPs compared to other EU providers. The Netherlands, France and Germany are on top in the EU.
Well, gee… Of course no one ever heard me whining about this in chat, forums, wherever.

<- Moves about from Belgium and Netherlands often…

Wii Death (25th May 2008)

*Caves in*

IRC chattings~
[2008:05:25 – 01:10:40] also I think my Wii died O_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:13:19] weird all power socket of that splitter and protector works o_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:13:24] Frozentrout: o.o;
[2008:05:25 – 01:13:32] (lamp plugged in all of them and testingz)
[2008:05:25 – 01:13:39] Wii DEATH~
[2008:05:25 – 01:16:38] * @CommS007 slowly googles o_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:17:17] some people lucky with Wii deaths o_O *copy paste*
[2008:05:25 – 01:17:19] ***lol! Well, here was the solution. Go to mates house and get his Dad to fiddle with fuses, eventually determining the fuse was fine as was the power unit. Then we plugged it in and it worked. Then I came home and it worked again. The moral of the story? Uh, I dunno***
[2008:05:25 – 01:25:13] and Nintendo website got a big ass list of what to do o_O and try first
[2008:05:25 – 01:39:57] okay suddenly Wii got a light O_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:40:59] guess what I did o__o
[2008:05:25 – 01:41:15] (Wii works again (>O_o) )
[2008:05:25 – 01:41:40] and like noone is aboutz in ze busy weekendz ~(o.o~)
[2008:05:25 – 01:42:18] I guess Nintendo likes to give everyone the nostalgia feeling o_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:42:40] Frozentrout: you blew into it and jiggled it around like NES?
[2008:05:25 – 01:42:43] There was no dust accumulation, but hey what the heck I tried blowing hard at the fan in back and disc insertion place-ness o_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:42:47] yea o_o
[2008:05:25 – 01:44:17] o_o

So I basically I followed advice 4 (blowing) on Nintendo’s site the last o_o And maybe I shouldn’t keep it running 24/7 in my reasonable hot room~ (Can reach 27°C on hot days) It wasn’t that hot that night, bit stormy and the socket and schtuff went out for everything attached/plugged in there. (So the main new puter and etc.) All sockets seem to work as read in chat paste above.
Yay, for uhmm… reliable nostalgia?
