new external hdd

Soo yeah this is my new 1.5 tb external hdd. I'm very happy with it. It's a western digital hdd, and I bought it from Too bad that they already made me pay the new 10 euro copy tax though, they were only supposed to start with that in february. It's not really fair though, we have to pay a copy tax on CD's, DVD's, ipods, mp3 players, hdd's, USB sticks etc. Yet piracy is still illegal. Then why are we paying those taxes, if we're not allowed to store pirated stuff? And a lot of people use USB-sticks to make backups or transfer their personal files...doesn't seem fair to have to pay a copy tax for that.
Anyway, here is my new hdd.

I will call her Gomorra, after one of the two sinful cities (the other being Sodom) that were destroyed by God. Not that I'm a religious person, but it seemed kinda nice to give one of my hdd's a biblical name. Yes I'm the kind of retard that names computer stuff.

Hey, welcome to my own personal blog. You should know that this isn't my first attempt on keeping a blog, I'm just very bad at it. Ah well, let's hope that it goes better this time.

Today, I'd like to share something sweet I made...cupcakes!

This is my first attempt at making these, I just followed a simple recipe (which I will include below) and added some food colouring. The original idea was to make a few blue ones too, but mixing the blue colour with yellow dough resulted in green cupcakes, and I couldn't find a way around that. Next, I added some butter cream topping (which is really delicious too) to make it look a bit more special.

Hehe, ok maybe I ate a few in the process. They were really good.

More cupcakes...chocolate and green ones

In the end, my family got a bit sick and tired of eating cupcakes so I had to quit making them. Ok, maybe they never really were enthusiast about it anyway, guess no one wants green cupcakes, they do look a bit poisonous.

Now for the cupcake recipe!

125 g self-raising flour
125 g sugar
100 g butter
2 eggs
30 ml milk
vanilla sugar

1. preheat the oven on 180°C
2. melt the butter in the microwave
3. mix all the ingredients
4. put cupcake liners in a muffin tin
5. divide the dough over the cups
6. bake in the oven for 25 min

hint: add more milk to make the cupcakes lighter
