Hey there. I’m Josh, a SydneyCanberra-based maker of Internets. I don’t update this very often.

Vinyl 45 arrives





It’s here.

DFI LanParty UT NForce4 SLI-DR VENUS, AMD 64bit 3200+ (939) @ 2.4GHz, 2GB (2 x 1GB DIMMS) OCZ Platinum DDR PC4000, 256MB GeForce 7600GS PCIe, 250GB Sata2 Seagate, Pioneer DVD Combi drive, OCZ Powerstream 520 Watts… and XP Pro still sucks. Necessary evils, I suppose. 2221 3DMark ’06, don’t remember ’05 score.

All this firepower and I’m sitting here playing seven-year-old RTS games anyway. Sigh :P Next stop, another hard drive (just so I don’t have system/data on same disk… I’d complain about the pagefile — wow it’s weird calling a swap partition that — but somehow with 2GBs of tasty memory — mmm brains — that shouldn’t be too much of a concern just yet ;-)).

Also, I’m rather sold on the dual core myth so if anyone has an X2 939 they’re trying to get rid of… PWTB. Not that I need it right now so it’ll wait a while. I’m planning on saving again and getting some decent video hardware to go with my new Sony PVM-411CE :-)

I’ve got some case mods planned but am thinking they’re going to have to wait until summer break for reasons of time and money. And it’s now 1.30 in the morning and I’ve got to be up in five and a half hours. Doh… computers suck.
