More geekyness!

I’ve really got too much time on my hands during these summer holidays. However I’m putting them to good use. Since I’ve upgraded my computer (and the “my pooter” section WILL be done at some point soon) I moved the old CPU and motherboard to the server. Now that should run alot better. I’ve even taken the liberty of setting up my FTP/HTTP servers on that too. Unfortunately due to ntl’s routine maintenance in our area, I’m getting an intermittant connection to the internet. It works when it wants to but disconnects every minute or two. It’s damn annoying, especially when I’m trying to download stuff over eMule and get these servers working! Still, it should all be over by the end of the week (or so ntl’s service status website claims).

I’m bored…

…so I translated a huge block of alien text on a Futurama DVD. Sure, I could’ve just looked on the net for the translation but it’s more fun doing it yourself. Plus, as I made my way though, it was clear what I had become…

NOTE: What follows is a spoiler! If you want to work it out yourself, don’t read the rest of this post! (more…)

I posted an image on b3ta

I’ve decided that any new images I post on b3ta should go on here as well. It’ll fill in any gaps and give you all a good laugh, I hope.

64 bit baby, yeah!

I’ve finally upgraded my computer after what feels like god knows how long! I’ve finally ditched shoddy Intel and gotten onto AMD. Before, I had a Pentium III 1.2Ghz PC with 1.5Gb SD-RAM. Now my PC is running on a sweeeeeeet AMD Athlon 64bit X2 Dual-Core 3800+ with 1Gb DDR-RAM. The speed is noticeably different! The PC doesn’t stop to think when I reply to an email or anything like that. I haven’t tried it with any games yet (it came with a built in video card so that’s been updated too!) but I’m sure it’ll have improved that by quite a bit!

But that’s not all! I’ve also replaced one of my case fans with a Blue/Green UV fan, switched my IDE cables for Blue/Green UV sensitive tidy IDE cables and installed a UV bulb on the bottom of my case. Now it has an eerie glow from within the case as well as on the outside! I’m going to install a switch soon so I can just turn the lights on and off at will though.
