Geek heaven!

I went to Media Markt, but GASP! I couldn't find the PDA I wanted! But PC city next door did, so no worries!

I got a HP iPAQ 1710 WITHOUT GPS functionality because in the end, I'd probably never use it anyway...

Then I went to Media Markt and I got a beautiful iPod Mini Blue, Another Code of Nintendo DS, Cold Fear for PC and a ton of B-movies! I didn't even know they sold those kind of movies here! YES!

The first thing I did when I got home was install these beauties, first the Ipod...

OK, if your PC stops working after installing the iPod, then just unplug it until it has booted up. The manual didn't say a thing about this and it nearly gave me a heart attack! After that it uploaded a the whole Gig I had of music quite fast (I never knew I had that much music) and I left it charging and started fidgeting with the PDA...

The iPod only comes with software, headset and belt attachment, and to navigate through the menus I had to rotate my finger around the controls, which seemed a bit weird and I had to get used to it... It's kinda like an Atari Paddle Controller...

The install program was an IE window which kept giving me errors, but I just used the install program in the CD and that did the trick...

I transfered my game list Excel Spreedsheet and I installed Lemonade Tycoon and The Emperor's Mahjong on it. I put my own wallpaper on it and registered the gadgets...

HP gave me some points I can redeem for games or software!
I could play Sim City 2000 for free!

Ooooh! So shiny! What to play with first!?!

Ok, maybe I played a little with the PDA, but then I started playing Another Code...
