More dentist-stuff

As you might have guessed my trip to the dentist didn’t kill me…  It wasn’t even as bad as I had thought, it was a bit bad though. I was drenched in sweat afterwards, weird how that can mess with my mind, but now it is done. I have to go a couple of more times in may, but then thats it and my toothache should be over! But it stills scares the shit out of me…

To fear or not to fear.

I think all of you know what I’m talking about, that cold fear that will keep you awake at night. Or at least give you the kind of nightmares that will wake you up with a short, but intense, scream. The thoughts about being violated over and over again. The dreaded sounds of things that hurt and children crying…

I have postponed this for almost twelve years, but now it is time. I’m going to the dentist! Not because I want to, but because I have to. Toothache! Actually it has been bugging me for about a year, but i’ve been to scared to go.

Now I’m going, but not freely! With friends like that, who needs enemies 😉

Netgear EVA 8000 HD

Some time ago I bought a Netgear EVA 8000 HD, it is a media player that plays multimediacontent on an USB disk or your network. I quickly realised that the firmware it was born with was bugridden and not quite ready. It is save to say that I was a bit disappointed. But mutch to my surprise I discovered that not only was I not alone in my disappointment, Netgear was developing the software for this player rather aggressively! The first update fixed a LOT of bugs and I have become a betatester for Netgears developmentbranch of the software and they ship a new betafirmware approximately once a a week.

It is turning out to be an interesting, rather than disappointing, piece of hardware 🙂


I completely forgot to mention that it runs Linux!
