Great Midi Site

I stumbled upon a great site offering MIDI downloads and a MIDI to MP3 converter. I was looking for such a feature for a long time as my old SoundBlaster gave up after almost 9 years of working.

Now I have only my internal soundcard with crappy MIDI playback. Now I can make use of the 1000s of MIDIs again that I have somewhere on my computer. I started converting some of the songs I wrote myself some years ago and put them on my iPod.

My Chilis keep growing

It's been a while since my last post about my chilis. It's been amazing how fast they have been growing. The trick is simple: give them a good earth to grow in and they will surprise you every day.

I've stopped counting the fruits as their number has become uncountable.

If anyone out there has some hints of how to grow them into even more tasty chilis, please drop me a comment. I sure will post my experiences.

My New Bike

My new race bike

I got my new bike a few days ago. The day I got it, I did a 22km trip followed by a 35km one the next day. I love it. It's fast, it's light weighted and it makes your back hurt. That's what everyone will experience when using a race bike for the first time I guess. I wasn't used to this kind of sitting style. But on my third trip there was no pain anymore, just fun.

My third trip took me to my girlfriend's place - some 44km away from home. And I was almost as fast as the train to the same destination: only 1:30 hours for one way.
