Yes, I strongly ‘dislike’ politicians

Lots of OLD news for those of you following me on Facebook. (Gosh, wish I had had that idea… I would be 18 BILLION DOLLARS richer….. just about enough to settle the perceived ‘national debt’ our politicians are claiming we have !!!). Anyway, many things happened since my last post.…

More fun than MS Flight !?

Winter is over !

Or it will be tomorrow when we leave the snowy white mountains to replace it for the usually drudgery that we call home……. or Holland. We had a great 2 weeks here with mostly gorgeous weather, some horrible headaches (what else), MAJOR muscle aches in the beginning and freezing cold…

Spring!

Sorry for being absent for a while. Actually, I still am. Nina and I settled in our Eagles Nest for a few weeks, taking in the snow, the sunshine, the sweat……. we’ve been skiing for 5 afternoons, been walking, and been relaxing as far as work for Computer Pilot allowed…

Who’s tracking you !

I know some of you are really paranoid about the Internet and the Big Bad World out there. Well, you’re right 🙂 And to prove it, here’s a great tool for you to install (trust me… oops) in your Firefox browser add-on group. After a while it will show you…

George Carlin

There are some people you just have to like. George Carlin is one of them and it is so sad that he passed away a few years ago. Fortunately his legacy lives on in his books and on Youtube. Here’s one I stumbled upon this morning…. a classic !

My Column on Aerosoft

Maybe you haven’t noticed yet, but I have been honoured with a little place on the new Aerosoft News Pages, notably under the ‘Columns’ tab. The invitation and start of that site coincided with the release of the MS Flight ‘beta’ and the ‘fire storm’ that it caused on places…

Microsoft finally lost me…..

On my Flightsim Soapbox. I know, I must be the Last of the Mohicans with SO many people over the past decades pissing on Microsoft for their monopolies, cranky OS’es, disdain for their customers and many other reasons. So call me naive, I don’t care. Fact is, I have been…

Navigating Brains……

Have you ever thought about this? How amazingly wonderful our brains are in terms of ‘navigating’ the world. Oh well, admittedly, some people cannot discern left from right, but in general we have some awesome computing power ‘up there’ and I think our brain deserves it to give it some…

Yo Simmers ! Come and get MOUNTAINS!

Yup, I FINALLY came up for air after some two weeks of major problems with a variety of things technical. Since the last update in December the webshop would not accept LARGE files for download anymore. Bummer! Took me an entire week of ‘helpdesking’ between the US, Bulgaria and Russia…

Stop SOPA/PIPA

  There’s a lot of talk about this all over the Internet. Basically the US wants to install laws to prevent the Internet being used by pirates and such. In reality such laws will very likely ONLY hit ‘normal netizens’ , just like many off-line laws do. Criminals of any…

My 5 seconds of fame!

Hey ya’ll, I never thought I’d get my moustache on a tv screen…. but it happened nonetheless. Let it roll for a bit and you’ll see me, straight from the FSAddon HQ ! Now I will hide back under my rocks again….. 😉   http://www.komu.com/videoplayer/?video_id=6317

Hanging out on local tv in Missouri !

Because one of the primary bits of FUN running this particular company of mine is INTERACTION with our customers, here’s a little tip of the veil of WHAT ELSE I do besides running a flight simulator add-on company. All my life I have been involved in breaking (IT) technology and…

I was on US TV News today

Now that sounds rather ominous, doesn’t it? Although I didn’t say much, it IS true though. So let me tell you about this Google+ Hangout On-Air thing that is starting to shape yet a new road into Social Media and News Gathering/Sharing. Google has released Google+ some time ago, which…

Running for air !

One of my friends suggested that I’d actually ‘blog’ about my new Activity; running! That’s Activity with a Capital A, because it really IS physical, (e)motional activity, unlike the rest of my life spent mostly in front of a bunch of monitors. Went to see my doctor a few weeks…

Facebook Junkies

I am one, that’s for sure. Running two monitors (and sometimes 5), a notebook on the side and a smart phone on my desk, I am back to the old days when I was a ‘cellphone’ junkie. That was when this stuff was still new and I was an executive…

Mercedes camera shoot !

This blog IS about automotive things, so the attached Youtube video is not THAT much out of place as you might think! I foundf it through my Twitter account and it provides an interesting view into the world of movie makers and car manufacturers… and how they come together! Enjoy…

Life is good in Italy

And that, my friends may sound strange from an embattled Europe where one COUNTRY after another shows similar deficits as the US and threatens to collapse altogether. Italy is in fact one of the main ‘problems’ in the world today. But, staying with Dutch friends in Umbria, helping them to…

Addicted to Internet…..

… or rather, to my sales website and the sales there. Or the lack of them, at times. I just noticed last week that for the past 6 years I’ve become really addicted. I NEED to make some money, and that is proving to be increasingly difficult in the current…
