I decided to get my hands on a modded Nintendo Wii. Well – www.flanders.de sounded good for bying one – completely modded and ready for gaming. That was on the 4th of april.
Today it was my 4th time calling flanders to find out, if it will ship within this century. I got the exact answer I got the last 3 times. They are out of chips, but mine would be the next one done and it will be here on Monday.
I send them a fax with a deadline for wednesday. Otherwise just another case for my lawyer. Too bad…
What a fax can do…I got my Wii, perfectly modded and ready to rock on the 5th of May right after some very interesting calls from flanders.de – out of chips, problems with the mod and stuff.
At least they cared after threatening them with a lawyer. Nonetheless I wouldn´t recommend them for further shopping.
After some time of thinking I got my GARMIN ForeRunner 205 – a GPS based training device for walking, hiking and biking with support for navigation and route tracking.
The first test seems promising, a short track around Ilmenau looks like this :
Short track around Ilmenau
A little part of the route is missing and right now I´m not quite sure if I did something wrong or the device did. But I´ll find out in the future.
What really sucks is the GARMIN Training Center Software, totally unprofessional designed (installing in a non-selectable path – C:\Garmin, adding a service without asking, only worked after downloading the newest version from the website).
But the 3D Route Builder – http://www.HybridGeoTools.com really helped me through – and the basic version is free for personal use.
So expect a very cool bike trail in a few days (and some pics of the device).
I´ve never been a great fan of Nine Inch Nails, mainly because I simply didn´t liked the music (exept for “Head like a hole”).
But what I really like about them is that they give away their music for free. Like the new album “The Slip”.

Great – thx !
I did it. After years of thinking and months of doubt now it´s here – my first blog universum. And you want to know about my motivation ? (I guess you don´t…)
(But wouldn´t be a blog if I´d mind…)
