Weekend stuff… Drobo again & Philips Latte Select

July 26th, 2009 2 comments
Latte Select

Latte Select

And again I have troubles with two items in my flying circus.

The brand new Philips Latte Select failed now the second time – after it was delivered the first time by I had to return it immediately because the watertank was broken (the water indicator).

They sent me a new one and everything worked fine – until yesterday evening. We made two cups of Latte Macchiato – but then the machine stopped working. Normal coffee worked, but as soon as a ‘milky’ version was selected the start/stop button light was just flashing… not the fast flashing indicating that milk or water is missing – no a slower one which is not described in the manual…

Drobo 2TB

But not enough – I started to move large files to my drobo (about 5 files each about 2GB). While the move was performed my MacBook Pro decided to start a backup via TimeMachine to my drobo. After 2mins the light indicators of the drobo where black. It just stopped working.

I disconnected the drobo from the Airport Extreme, pulled out the power line, waited some minutes and then re-powered the device. Re-connected it to the APE and tried again. Same procedure… this time much faster :-(… after seconds the lights where black and the drobo didn’t respond any more.

Because it was already two o’clock in the morning I decided that I wait until the next day to try it again.

This morning I connected the device directly to the MacBook Pro because it was not possible to restart the drobo again while it was connected to the Airport Extreme – and it worked.

So I think this time the Airport Extreme seems to be the device to blame. I restarted the device and then reconnected the drobo – and now everything worked. Strange behaviour….

The Airport Extreme was not dead during this time – everything else worked fine…

The Philips Senseo LS has been picked up yesterday (Aug., 3rd 2009) evening to take a little repair session… we’ll see how long this session will take.

Update 2:
As promised by Philips Support the Senseo was sent back within 10 workdays. And works great 🙂

‘Offline’ the last days… because of ‘Flight Control’

July 19th, 2009 No comments

You realized that there have been less entries in my blog over the last days?

Yes – you’re right… and it’s all because of ‘Flight Control’



I’m in fact not a gamer – just sometimes I like it to play around with new games… but never for a long period.
Well – with Flight Control maybe this will change… I’m playing around with this game now for several days and it is still pure fun 🙂

200PS on the river ‘Inn’

July 12th, 2009 No comments

Yesterday Nico & Marco – my two sons – had an appointment with our local Firedepartment in Kufstein, Tyrol. They have been invited to have a ride with their 200PS jetboat on the river ‘Inn’.

So we started at 9 o’clock and where shown the equipment of the firedepartment – their cars, trucks, watertanks, uniforms, helmets and much, much more – the kids had fun, really fun 🙂

After half an hour we where picked up with one of their trucks and rushed to the docking station of their jetboat in Zell. The kids – and we too – where very excited. They got their lifejackets – a little too big for Nico… but no problem at all… and then we started to a ride over the Inn.

It was really great and we all had fun and learned much about our firedepartment. Photos will follow on flickr soon – check them out!

Thank you to all involved who made this event happen!
