New Mac mini (Intel based) – Macs now running windows

The last experiment with getting a Mac worked out just fine. And then 2 weeks ago the company I work at found out that we needed a Mac, so the supporters was able to actually look at a Mac and be able to assist our customers running OS X with their needs. So I got an oppotunity to sell my “old” Mac mini G4.

So fast forward to yesterday: My new Mac arrived. 220MB downloads later (Turns out OS X 10.4.6 was released same day) I was up and running. A quick restore of my files from my external Iomega firewire drive to /Users and creation of a new user with my usual username (OS X asked if I wanted to “reattach” the files I had just restored – Which is basicaly a chmod to get the permissons right), and I was back where I left off. Things going a lot faster though.

Today Apple released a press announcement about Boot Camp. A bit of a surprise, as it was not excatly something I saw coming, considering Steve’s latest interviews and tradeshow talks.

But here it is, and it is working just fine too. A few screenshots from windows:

Selection of startup disk – Not unlike the OS X program for the same job:

How windows see the devices on the mini:

Only a few devices does not show up as working. Apple says it is the remote control – And I frankly do not have any idea what that should be doing in windows, with the apparent lack of Frontrow.

Apple say that Boot Camp is going final along with OS X 10.5 (Aka Leopard).

What I would really like to know though: Is it ok to ignore the parts in the manual specifying what to install, and install something more interesting than Windows XP Pro SP2?


It seems that some crafty people have managed to do the tricks and boot multiple OSs

Old picture

At “Onsdagsmam”, my aunt offered my a copy of some an picture she found and had made replicas of. For your viewing pleasure I have scanned it.

Featuring (From left to right): Me, my grandmother holding my sister Charlotte and my cusin Karen Marie. The picture is taken in front of my grandmothers summer house, now owned by Charlotte. My guess would be that it is taken sometime durring the summer of 1977 or 1978.

Got myself a new bicycle

Well… Not quiet yet actualy, but I went to one of the [many] local bicycle store to look for one today.

What I ended up with was this baby, which I am going to pick up tomorrow.


The manufacturer MBK has all the specs. I’m getting it fitted with tire and chain fenders and a lock to boot.

It’s going to be interesting to be riding something with considerably less than 95HPs, but as winter seems to be unwilling to go away this will have to do until there are 5+ centigrades…

Soekris 4801 PXE boot installation

After half a weekend at LinuxForum 2006 I retuned with a Soekris Engineering net4801 witch I got from Wim Vandeputte, who runs

Soekris 4801-50

Now the challange was: How to install something on it. The solution was at Ultradesic site. They got a very through HOWTO on how to install most *BSDs (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and miniBSD) and some Linux distros on this SBC.

Worth checking out if you either have a Soekris 4801 or are considering to get one.

WordPress II

A new version of WordPress has been released. In fact it has allready been installed here. For some reason the developers have named it the Duke Ellington-version?!? There is not much to see here, but on the backend there is a lot of improvements. A new editor, hopefully a functional distributed antispam filter, post-preview on the fly, more easy uploading and importing and now headlines can be edited too.

Just arrived home from a concert with I Am Bones we have arrived at the conclusion: They rock!The I Am Bones concert was followed up by LARSEN AND FURIOUS JANE – And they suck, except for one (1) riff and their go-go girl. Get a head shave and a bigger guitar dudes!The goood thing about Johannes’n’friends live must also be the extended use of rock’n’roll guitars – There’s a lot more of it live than on the album (Although the album is still highly recommendable).

The I Am Bones concert was followed up by Larsen and Furious Jane – And they suck, except for one (1!) riff and their go-go girl. Get a head shave and soem bigger guitars, dudes!

The goood thing about Johannes’n’friends live performanvce, must be the extended use of rock’n’roll guitars – There’s a lot more of it live than on the album (Although the album is still highly recommendable). I got a copy at the concert – even though I got the MP3’s!!!!!11 :)

You can listen to a track on, and another track is available on the record companys website: Morningside Records.

A few pictures are online at the gallery

Diana, the wife of my friend Niels, has taken over, in her project to sell stofblomster (Or flowers made by cloth). Appart from the flowers, the most impressive must be that this is her first website, and it was made in a few days. Nice going, there.
