FUN: Away for today...

...because I won a Microsoft Xbox today :oops: and have to do something better now then posting any news here as you might can imagine... :-D :lol:
No, honestly - today Microsoft Germany held an event for community leaders here in Germany which isn't comparable to the Microsoft MVP program but similar anyway and I was invited.
However, Microsoft wouldn't be Microsoft if they wouldn't give away the one or the other stuff and since this even was pretty much developer driven, most of the prizes were development tools (VB C++ .Net Compact Framework or what was the name? :oops: Sorry still not a developer :oops: ) but the grand prize was a Xbox with "Midtown Madness 3" and the Xbox Live pack and to make it short - I was the lucky one! :-) So please don't ask what I'm doing right  now... Driving like hell through Paris for sure! :lol:
I haven't owned a Xbox before nor a PS II but my last video game system was from Nintendo - maybe it's time to start having fun again... :-D

So see you tomorrow or later on the streets of Paris but take care - I'm still learning how to drive this digital "bastard"... ;-)

Thanks a lot Microsoft - you saved me my cold winter evenings now (and it's really becoming annoying cold now...)!

Cheers ~ Arne

Kewl! Enjoy mate! I have Midtown too and it's a lot of fun, maybe we should have a race on weekend? :-)

And BTW I don't think you have to thank M$ for the XBox but they have to thank you and others who run such great sites. At least yours and others was a reason for me to move from Palm to PocketPC (still waiting for my SmartPhone).

Keep up your great work and enjoy your virtual drive! :-)

JA

Hey, congrats Arne! wink

Talking about games: I'm going to buy Max Payne 2 - The Fall of Max Payne that is released in Europe tomorrow (friday). So, you're not going to be the only one playing this weekend! big_smile (What else could I do when there is snow outside? lol )

There are some great XBox live games. You can add me to your friend list to play online sometime. Send me an email with your online ID and I will give you mine.

Have I ever told you that I hate cables!? ;-) I'm still not online with the Xbox because it's in another room then my PC/DSL connection and a while back I sold all my LAN cables because everything except my main PC is Wi-Fi enabled. So my printer is around 5 m away from my PC but connected to one of my old Notebooks (the Notebook is behind the printer) which is connected to my Wi-Fi Network and works as a "print server". So even my printer prints wireless.

Now I have the Xbox (as I said in another room) and no LAN cable for it to connect it across the whole apartment with my DSL router...

If anyone of the Microsoft Product Planing team reads this lines: "please make sure to enable Wi-Fi for the next Xbox version" you might already working on.

So I have to buy a LAN cable first on Monday :twisted: to meet yo guys online.

BTW - Filip: Another thing you could do with snow outside is snowboarding!? :-) Can hardly await the season start hear in the Alps! :-D
