Some of you may have noticed that my activity has been less than usual during the last days. And for those of you keeping in touch with me on MSN has seen I am offline.

I am currently doing some renovations in my apartment, new pipes are being pulled through the apartment and new radiators installed. This has forced me to move a lot of furniture including half the computer room. I had to disconnect all my computers except for the server, laptops are of course mobile so I am writing this on my Macbook.

This temporary downtime has halted my work on BA, I won't be able to prepare any releases until I get my stuff running again. At the time of writing the pipe pulling has been completed in the apartment, but since half my stuff has been packed and disassembled I take the time to do some moving in the apartment. My current livingroom is about 50% larger than the computer room, and the computer room has about 20000% more computer hardware than the livingroom (:)), so I want to move everything to the livingroom and move the TV and stuff to the old computer room.

I am planning to do the bulk of the work this weekend, starting with the desks where my computers are located on as well as moving the server. So if everything works I should be able to get my computers up and running by the end of the week. Once the systems are online I can resume my work with releases, and then I can take all the time I need to move the rest of the furniture since it won't affect the system operations.

So please keep uploading new stuff, I'll go through the bulk when I am back. I will check back on BA from time to time, but since my Macbook has become my emergency workstation, labstation, gamestation and test center the resources and time are limited to fully do all of it. My Macbook is powerful, but not that powerful :).

When they have Toshua's rank, you don't take anything they say seriously.

And that's why I don't go on first impressions, people change. Fact.

Renovations are complete! I've moved most of my furniture to the new rooms and connected most of the computers. I still have a few stuff to move around, but systems are running and I am resuming my releases. Be ready for quite a big one this time, since not only do I have some older Win2k8 R2 stuff, but also the recent Win7 stuff along with a MacOS release. So it will be a few gigs.

When I am all done perhaps I'll snap a few pics of the "new" computer room and put it in a thread. Perhaps....
