Actually Celine Dion is not the only one who get the pleasure of entertaining me 🙂 on March 1st 2008 I’m going to see the “Mamma Mia” musical, based on 22 Abba hits…  Almost as great as Celine Dion…

Mamma Mia

Yes, its now officially true…  I am now the proud owner of 4 tickets to Celine Dion’s concert in Copenhagen next year…  It only took 1½ hours constant internet hammering on the ticket office and constant calling their overloaded phonesystem…

Unfortunately I had to settle with cheap rows, but hey I GOT TICKETS…  He he, guess my daughter is even prouder as she is among the 4 people going 😉

I am very much looking forward to this, Celine Dion has a special place in my life..  It is actually a bit sad, but never the less.  The day my mother died we all gathered in her house, and right there on her CD player was “I’m alive – Celine Dion”, yes I know odd with someone dying and remembering them by a song called “I’m alive” but every time I hear it it reminds me of my mother and that night in her house…  I tend to say that Celine Dion has the voice of an angel, and with this scenory in mind that could actually be just what she was for us that night…

No latebreaking technology here, but for those of you who have turned off automatic disk defragmentation in Windows Vista (with 1tb diskspace all it did was to work continuously on the disks), this might be useful..

A third party disk defrag with some extra features (cleanup before you go etc.), and best of all its FREE 🙂

You would not believe it if you did not see it, but after installing Vista and Office 2007, the startup of Outlook 2007 vent from seconds to minutes… It would take up to 4 minutes to get to your inbox, my first thought was the same problem with the spam-filter as I recently had with Outlook 2003.. But I finally got to the ‘lets google’ point and within the first few seconds I got a bite…

It would seem that Windows Vista was the corporate (what a surprise ;-)), something called TCP Windows Scaling (sounds mean), but to my relief the cure is quite straight forward, you issue a single dos command and everything works again (mind you, being Windows Vista you need to issue the command with Administrative privileges)..

Issue this command (using sufficient privileges) and the delay is gone..
“netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled”

Just spend about 30 min finding out that the usernames in WordPress is casesensetive, bummer 🙂
