"I feel good - tadadadadadadah" :)

Posted by Michiel Scholten in posts   

It was a lovely day today. First of all: the sun shined while it wasn't quite supposed to. Second, I'm currently copying 3 albums to a 256MB memorystick I bought earlier today so I can listen to them from my pda. I got a fresh haircut [boy that was needed …

Posted by Michiel Scholten in posts

Work work

Posted by Michiel Scholten in posts   

[Anybody who's played WarCraft III, remember the Orcs saying "Work work" - that's what's playing in my mind now :)]. Anyway, setting up a new website with a co-worker at the moment. Converting html designs into java jsp's, setting up xml files and stuff. Big fun :| Ah well, we've planned to play …
