It’s probably the first time I write about my personal life on this blog but don’t worry: no picture of my cats (I don’t have cats) nor of my latest knitting projects (even though knitting blogs and the like seem to pop up by millions everyday I don’t have the passion for it… who said “yet”?).
Three months ago the girlfriend and I moved to a new house. After 2 years in a 35 square meter apartment right in the city center, 4 years in 45 square meter just outside the city, we now have a 110 square meter house just for the both of us (a bit outside of the city center but a 20 minute bike ride can’t be that bad).
We moved to a house built in 2008 (and now the geek in me is back behind the keyboard) that has all the things I used to dream of while running cables all around the places I lived in: 14 Ethernet wall sockets around the house and a 100Mb fiber optic Internet access (for a bit less than $50 a month).
I just have one comment though: the switch could have been included with the house but I bought a Netgear ProSafe Ethernet Switch (GS116) and must say that I’m quite happy with it so far.
I have the NAS, the media player, a desktop, the printer, a Sonos Play:5 and even the Blu-ray disc player (I still don’t want to understand why a freaking movie player should need software updates) connected to it and they seem to all get along pretty well.
