I started out by splitting the screen clip from the cam.… Fortsätt läsa
Recently the batteries in my shaver (an old, but working, Philishave 5890) and hair trimmer (an old, but working, Philips HQ-C280) died. I looked around online for replacement batteries but didn’t find any specifications. I opened the devices but they didn’t tell what to use for replacements.… Fortsätt läsa
Some years ago I wrote about how to create a Windows Rescue CD. Today I was stuck with a similar problem. I wanted to merge all data from one disk to another without needing to re-install my computer.

Some days ago I booted up Ubuntu Gutsy (the next Ubuntu release that’s due October 2007) and it was kind enough to tell me that the battery in my Thinkpad T40 was being recalled. That’s so nice of Gutsy to tell me that; I don’t want a battery blow up in my head!… Fortsätt läsa
After fixing three different mp3-players with the same problem I’m starting to see a pattern of bad soldering on the connections for the ear phones plug. Fortunately the fix is easy if you have a basic knowledge about soldering.
I’ll go into detail for how I solved the problem with a SanDisk 1GB, MP3-Player (model number: SanDisk SDMX1-1024R).… Fortsätt läsa
Today my cellphone got stuck in headset-mode. I mean really got stuck. Nothing seemed to work (reboots, hard reboots, all the ”standard” trix) .
