After the false starts of the day before, I was eager to get a few things done on Friday. I arranged to meet up with Gapie from the forum, and after ChrisB and I had visited a couple of coffeeshops for supplies, we settled into a chilled out routine.
I’ve occasionally blurred faces out in the pictures below – some people don’t want their photos online.
Once we met Gapie in Nes (and DC as well, who’d not been working the night before), ChrisD phoned me, with the good news that he was in Amsterdam and not too far from us!
After a good few drinks and smokes, we decided to try out one of the burger restaurants that had good reviews online – so Burger Bar was selected. I snapped a few pics, but wasn’t actually very hungry, so just had chips and tomato soup.
ChrisB had heard about some sort of freeparty at a squat on Friday night, so after a LONG walk we eventually found the place. I had been expecting dance music, UV lights and loved up people, whereas the event was actually an open-mic night organized by the group that had reclaimed the derelict building. They also had a small art show. Actually not too bad considering what I’d been expecting.

For those that haven’t heard already, I’m currently waiting for a few things from the local PC shop over here, and have been for a while.
Actually, five and a bit months so far for most of them. However, Irina called them for me today, and apparently….
A 7900GT grafx card should be ordered in for me arriving next week (paying the difference in price between it and my current 7600GT)
The 320 Gb Seagate SATA hard drive I gave them wasn’t recoverable, data wise, but they’ll replace the unit, as it appears to be faulty (hmmm, I’m guessing that accidentally reversing the polarity of the DC input, via plugging in lighting system incorrectly might not have helped, but shhhhhh ;-> )
If they can’t service the printer, they’ll replace it. (The printer pretends it doesn’t have any paper loaded, you click on the continue button, and then it notices it, multiple times per print job)
When they come over and swap the grafx card, they’ll hopefully disconnect my case alarm as well – before anyone laughs, yes I do think I’m just about capable of doing that job solo, but I’d invalidate their guarantee…
