Valentine day at HamsterTracker.com
I expected a different start of Valentine day,
I went to the barber shop;
where got a great hearcut, close shave.
I also washed my biters (= brushed my teath ),
and used some nice cologne...
it then happened after entering the living-room;
I noticed this:
" Very Smelly Source Located ! " - Mathijs
[ Lucy's bathroom ]
After some tedious cleaning,
I almost forgot it's Valentine's day today.
Presenting my Valentine day
Greeting's to you all:
" Have a GREAT Valentine day !
may everything smell and be nice ! " - Mathijs
Photograph shot with the webcam,
trying to maintain a very serious posture,
while laughing behind that silly mask !
it didn't take long for Lucy to wakeup:
" Happy Valentine-s !!!
After I've gone to the bath-room,
( which I CAN'T smell from here ! )
then I want to give you a nice cuddle !" " - Lucy
Note the empty treats container;
I am holding all the treats in my hand ...
" Smells nice again, Dude ! " Lucy
" Please excuse me, Dude, !
Can YOU say hello to all my fans...
I need to, like, REALLY, go ... " Lucy
" Not really focused photograph, of a huge bunch of cuteness ! " Mathijs
Having an offline good time, as you read this!
We hope you are enjoying Valentine day too !

Pouchin' Lucy - part II
We left off yesterday with Lucy's right cheek, pouched to
Tha MAX! with a peanut,
Or so we thought ...
" Nicely focused !
[ also posted on Lucy's flickr™ page ] " - HamsterTracker™-Photography Dept.
" Look at those stuffed pouches !
Isn't it amazing that Lucy's 'neck' grew a few sizes ?
(Yes ! I am still workin' on aiming the camera.) " - Mathijs
" Fffffanks Fude !
Fi Fove Fyou ! " - Lucy
" She's movin' it all to the bedroom ... " - HamsterTracker™-Observation Dept.
" It's (almost) all gone in one go ! " - HamsterTracker™-Observation Dept.
I ordered an immediate refill ! !
So todays entry ends here, 'cause I've got some work to do !
YES, that does involve refilling !!!
Regular visitors know that I am the proud owner
of a new sound card.
Although I installed it 12 days ago,
just this weekend I did the final thing.
HamsterTracker™-Presentation Dept. Presents:
Installing THE soundcard:
" Before we started,
we made a diagram on how all (labled-) cables are hooked up ..." - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
" On the inside,
there are two PCI-Express slots;
they are the little white ones,
just below the (passively cooled) VIDEO-card.
We picked the one furthest away from it (for better cooling-flow or whatever :-)"
" We hope it SOUNDS as good as it LOOKS !" - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
This is where I,
the HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
We forgot to hook up the in front of the computer audio connectors !
That's pretty stupid,
that was one of the reasons to buy this card !
So this weekend we opened up the Dream-Machine again:
" Installing the WRONG connector !
(50% chance)" - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
The cable that came with the computer casing has two connectors,
one marked AC 97 (the WRONG one),
and the other HD Audio.
It didn't break anything while hooking up the 'wrong' one.
While using this connector, the soundcard 'thought' I was only using headphones (=front connector).
Using the other connector,
this signal is processed by actually plugging in a headphone !
COOL (!!!) because this behaviour can be altered by the software !
(you can (optionally) automatically shut down the external speakers,
when plugging in your head-set)
" The right connector,
together with the WRONG connector, tied up !" - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
Then the patching of all the cables re-started,
" It improved a bit,
depending on your view !" - HamsterTracker™-Geek Dept.
So I played some nice relaxing loungy sounds
and then I then offered Lucy my head-set:
" I hear it just fine, Dude,
that's relaxin' .....
Makes me Dreamy .... ! ... " - Lucy
It al now functions as it should !
together with Lucy's approval
equals : Awesome !
