My laptop was broken again today (it was before) out of the blue.
A dreaded 2 beeps during POST (no screen or anything).
The same beeps as before.. When I analysed and found it to be the video card.
I baked my card on 200 C, 7 minutes that time and it lovely went to work again (thanks, oven trick!).
So, I did it again today, and ah… it works again after 8 minutes 200 C ^^
But I do hope its going to last longer now >.> Not just 2 months.

Hm, I never know what to write, so that’s why there’s never a post.
It’s not that people would care since noone really reads it except for 1/2 people
But I think I’ll try to convert my webpage to Drupal. I’ll be going intern at someone and I’ll be using Drupal, so it seems a good way for me to start trying this stuff out.
Perhaps it’s also a way to increase my impulses to write something in my blawg.
Only, ofcoure, I’d need to link Drupal to WordPress. Seems like a good project! … Though, there are probably plugins, but I’ll see.

So, a lot of people probably have upgraded to Messenger 2009 already. I myself used this back when it was still in BETA. I quite like the version, it’s a bit cleaner and less stupid things.
Though.. One moment in the beta I suddenly couldn’t log in with the message that the service was down. I thought perhaps the BETA ended so I reverted back to an old version that worked. Still, other people actually could still use it. I just blamed the new version not working and lived on.
Now I actually wanted to try the version again, perhaps it fixed. Nope it didn’t. I still have the error. Then I tried logging in with another account. Jollymolly’s, it worked. So it was based on my main account. I removed some files (to be exact, the directory C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts\). It’s a directory containing 2 empty ones, but if you check the data it’s actually 60 MB (for me) with 10 files and 6 directory’s. Right. I removed them and.. as expected, I could log in, only to be kicked off after some time. I currently think it might be some user in my list perhaps screwing up, but it’s annoying as hell.
Guess I’ll have to wait on MicroSoft’s explanaition.

So, the server’s back online. Yay. I first destroyed it because I removed a vital file in the FreeBSD shared objects directory.. Stupid me. It was because I couldn’t run a program, was quite annoyed over it (some weird error about the shared object being unable to do something..) and deleted it. Meh.
Server back, tried to run the program again.. I thought this repair install of Fbsd fixed it.. but still the same error. I didn’t know why, till I figured out that the program’s executable was still set on version 6.2 while I needed 7.0. I did download 7.0 but I just forgot to overwrite it in that directory too.
Nonetheless, I think everything is running again. Enjoy the TeamSpeak server for as far as you use it and perhaps the ZDaemon server..
Besides that, I’ve started running a stream server. The idea behind it lies at a forum I visit (GSRealm if you’re interested). The people there will be able to stream so others can listen to it. I’ll be one to stream quite a lot I think (though I gotta use FooBar2000 and I prefer using WMP), so in case you want to hear the stuff I listen to, be sure to stream in at http://xslicer.nl:8000/stream.ogg.m3u
On a little side note:
As I was ranting about Pokemon Diamond/Pearl being so slow.. Appearently more people thought so and the devs made it faster (Ruby/Sapphire speed) in the newest Pokemon Platinum. It’s for now only available in moonspeak so gotta wait till the English version before I’ll test it out.
