Toyota launches Lexus in Japan

Posted by on Wednesday, 31 August, 2005

Toyota Motor Corporation introduced its top-of-the-line luxury Lexus brand cars on Tuesday across Japan after their successful launch in more than 60 countries.

Opening over 140 showrooms at once (another 40 are already planned), especially designed for the Lexus, it is anticipated to intensify the competition in the luxury car segment, previously dominated by imported brands like BMW and Mercedes Benz.

The product lineup will initially consist of the GS, SC and IS models, with the LS model to be available from next summer.

I updated the Links page

Posted by on Friday, 22 July, 2005

OK…. It’s been way, waaaay too long since my last entry. But things have been really busy here, for a lot of different reasons. Maybe I’ll write an entry about it someday soon. If I get any new inspiration.

Anyway, I updated my links page. It was so old and ugly so I didn’t even want to visit it myself! The new one is slightly more fresh, I think. Definately not your usual links-page. Most of those banners I made myself, because the site in question did not have an official banner, that’s why some of them look kinda weird!!

New webhost!

Posted by on Friday, 1 April, 2005

Well, finally, after about 24 hours, the webhost-move has finalized! (Of course, it depends on local DNS-servers’ cache etc.)

I decided that the deal I was getting from my last host was not good enough, compared with what was available from other companies – so I started searching for a new one a few days ago, and my choice fell on Quality Host Online.

Much better speeds than the previous host, and a much, much better deal price-wise. (Plus the admin control panel is much cooler…… 😛 )

HTML 4.01 compliance…again

Posted by on Tuesday, 18 January, 2005

Finally… after a few weeks break, I managed to convert even Sebastian’s pages into HTML 4.01 Strict; so the whole webpage should be fixed now (apart from the areas beyond my control, such as this blog utility)

Anyway, after reading some stuff on the web I have re-thought my task of making it XHTML compliant. As it turns out, that is not something to strive for.

:EDIT:
I forgot about those darn Scancup-pages… *sigh* Anyway, I will redesign that part of the webpage anyway, so no need to polish up the current coding.

Meaningless Entry (again)

Posted by on Tuesday, 4 January, 2005

So…for the first time in about two years, I assembled a new computer again.

My parents were going to give my sister a PC for Christmas, and I got the task of buying it. Naturally, I apted for buying parts and assembling it – to get the best value/performance ratio (and the coolest computer…)

Anyway, when I started looking for parts etc. I realized that being out of the computer business for nearly two years REALLY makes you lose touch with what is cutting edge technology etc. When I buily my own computer early in 2003, it was fairly high-end with a 2.4 GHz P4, 333 MHz DDR memory, UATA/133 harddrive, DVD-R drive and an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP card.

Well, the computer I assembled for Christmas cost slightly less than mine (excluding the Samsung 172X monitor) but definately kicks its ass.

It is a 2.66 GHz Celeron J, 400 MHz DDR memory, SATA harddrive, DVD+/-RW DL drive and an ATI Radeon X600 Pro PCI-X card.

All this built into this sweet box, with the latest Intel i915 chipset:
