.. to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I had a quiet Christmas. That would be because on the 23rd one of our relatives suddenly passed away. So no festivities this year.
Still, I did go visiting and it was ok on the whole.
I do like what I got myself for Christmas though. I went out and got myself an AMD64 X2 4800 and a GeForce 8600 GT. Brilliant. I can actually play Crysis and it runs at a respectable detail level at a good framerate. I can play some of my older games at full detail with anti aliasing on.
I've finally got myself a dual CPU PC. It's interesting. I'm sure there's a lot I must learn about multi processor machines. The extra power means exploring stuff that I used to play on low detail and see how it looks like on high detail. The dual processor also helps with FM2008. It's noticeably faster now. The downside to all this extra power is that my computer's temperature has gone up.
My next two home computing projects are:-
1. Dual channel RAM
2. Dual hard disk stripe RAID
These ones are for next year I guess. For some of you, I guess all this techno talk is rather dull. You have my apologies.
No girl trouble this year unfortunately, so no emo posts. Yet.
So I've been keeping myself occupied. I've also been offline for the pass 4 days so it was a complete and much needed time off from... well, everything.
I'll be quite busy in January and will continue to be busy as long as we remain short handed.
I hope the last few days of the year will be good for all of us.
