Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

First impression: no torrent.. At this speed I'll have to wait until tomorrow before I get to test it out. ;)

Then I'll start playing with Metro for my app. Wiie! ;)

Here I am going at 80 kb/s. With an advertised speed of 10 Mbit. Guess my link to their servers isn't as good as that in NL.

Well, well. It'll give me more time to study for my exams.

I hate my 368kbps ;)

(and I pay 40 USD approx for it; it is a pity that internet is so expensive
and so slow in our developing countries)
