Starting from today, you can call me Dag Wiiers

Yes, resistance was futile. When everybody in my team at work had one, I could not be left behind.

So I bought myself a Wii. Plenty of Wii's still in the stores in Belgium, but it seems that most of the Wii-motes and Wii nunchucks are out of stock.

Playing with a Wii for the first time is very different. I would not be surprised if people in 20 years time still remember the first time they played a Wii (and against whom and if they won). It's those little facts of life that people cherish :-)

Anyway, boxing really is exhaustive and I am going to commit myself to work out for (at least) 30mins every day to see if it makes a difference.

After hearing about some great games at work (yes, work!) I bought 2 extra games (besides Wii Sports), namely Wii Play and Mario Party 8. I like Tanks, Laser Hockey, Find Mii and Shooting Range on Wii Play most. On Wii Sports I prefer Boxing and Tennis. On Mario Party 8 the interface is so annoying that we didn't play any game (yet). I need someone from work tell me how to disable the fluff and just select a game.

I am also interested in buying a first-person-shoot game (that can be played with at least 2 persons) and a game that can be played with more than one Wii (so maybe up to 8 people at the same time). Not sure if that exists (but I read about the possibility).

So if the RPM packaging seems slow, or I have become even more slow in answering mail, just remember that I am enjoying myself for once. See you in 2009 !! ;-)


The is the greatest thing that we ever bought for my family. My wife and children love playing it. Plus it gives me some peace to work on my hobbies.

BTW Thanks for your and all contributors great efforts with CentOS. I had been using Ubuntu and am now using CentOS.
