i have a new ISP: XS4ALL
i'm paying 12% more, for which i get a 30% faster connection. & hopefully a better service in general.
after i got all things wifi set up, i noticed something weird with the Vista start menu. while sleep mode was still there, the hibernate option seemed to be missing.
fixed that, got the option back..

oh and you may have heard that a little football (soccer) tournament kicked off last saturday.
& the dutch aren't playing too bad.. :)

we decided to run a sweepstake again at the office. sixteen people are putting in a tenner and if your team wins the final, you get all the money. the only problem of course, is that you cannot pick the country of your choice. two years ago, with the world cup, i drew australia. this time i got russia.
i'm seeing a pattern emerging here..

I've heard good things about XS4ALL. I hope you have a good experience with them.

yes, they come highly recommended. they're not the cheapest ISP around, but they have an excellent reputation and a very interesting history..

thanks.

so far, things are going great for the dutch team. if they keep playing like this, they are going to be tough to beat..
