Just make sure you can get a decent connection to your modem. If you get the largest bandwidth, but then use powerLAN adapters...
I will, there should be a cable from where the internet enters the apartment to my desk.
I won't know for sure that it works until August though.

Just got off the phone with my soon to be ISP. Speeds will be 220 (27.5MB) down, 20 (2.5MB) upload. However with a €5 monthly increase I'll be getting 400 (50MB) down and 50 (6.25MB) up. You best know I can't leave that offer hanging :laugh:

Man this new Windows update is pretty ugly...
I really really dislike the search included in the taskbar + the new internet icon looks lame.

And for the fail of the day...
I bought a W10 Pro license this weekend for my desktop since I lost my key when I upgraded my motherboard a few years ago and the tools to extend your trial/fake your license stopped working. Since there was a problem with my mailserver I only managed to get the key this morning, mind you it has been a pretty stressful morning already as I had to go to the hardware store to buy electronic outlets, and the ISP guy also came by this morning to install our internet but he concluded that it wasn't technically possible yet at this time.. (ffs). So I get back home and see that I finally received the key, being the dumb moron I am, I immediately activated the key.. on my laptop... which already had a genuine W10 license...
FORTUNATELY I did have a backup of the laptop's key somewhere on Google Drive. So right now my laptop has W10 pro, and my desktop has W10 home. So I didn't fuck up that bad, but still.. I feel like an idiot.
