Ok, I haven't really said anything in a long time...so I suppose (again) that this is my futile attempt at babble babbel babel (ala the 27 significant tr00ths): 1) www.yourethemannowdog.com finally gets it. my hero. 2) ??? 3) MAME is just about the best thing around. Buy me a cabinet already. 4) I live here, and I still haven't been to ground kontrol. maybe tomorrow. 5) Meg Lee Chin photos are up 6) The -C operator in perl will tell you when a file's inode was last changed. Duh. 7) Let's hope these things are better than the shit I'm currently using... 8) Tho the two are not entirely related, you should hire alphafight and go install qnx 9) The Doors + Bauhaus + The Cramps + Jesus and Mary Chain = Spacemen 3 10) FileZilla cures all your Windows FTP client needs. period. 11) If I had access to anything physically connected to hotmail, I would pee on it. 12) Dammit, I deserve it 13) WinPicProg is free, while the p16pro thingy is $$$...let's hope it works when I try it. 14) SuperPiMP is truly pimp. 15) You can get lost reading World Power Systems. Ok, maybe you can't, but I did... 27) At least one person in the world will never forget EBN (think 'television, the drug of a nation...') and you should definitely check out gnn if you don't already go there every single goddamn day, and PLEASE somebody please tell me where my favorite site went before I cry...I spent forever looking for it....
So the links page has a nice little addition -- our lord and savior jesus hovering ominously over the lower 48. You know you're going to burn in hell, so just relax.
I've also put cowstick up in the art section just for fun. Popsicles are yummy!
The projects page now has a wish list section. This should provide you, my humble viewer, an outlet for those massive wads of Benjamins that keep filling up your pockets ever-so-annoyingly. I know you find wealth so frustrating, so here's your chance for relief...just pop on over, pick something up, and send it my way.
And furthermore, if you haven't been to dustinplumb.net in a while, you should scope that cause I tossed up some new material.
I also tossed a few new anchors in the links page. Somehow some things of importance were forgotten in the whirlwind of stagnation. All apologies.
Sheesh, it's already September. Time flies when you're old.
My last few posts were written in a pretty foul state of mind...my demeanor was meaner. I'm not feeling nearly as bad as I was.
A p4 2.0AGHz drives my new main machine. I'm very impressed with it so far. I cannot say enough good things about the Gigabyte 8iexp motherboard. It's got everything you ever want. I really have to say this is probably the nicest piece of PC equipment I've ever purchased. In fact, I was so pleased with this new setup that I stuck the "intel inside" sticker on my generic case. Heh. I still have a bad taste in my mouth about AMD, but I may try and pick up a cheapish CPU to replace the old one and do the upgrade shuffle.
So not that much is new. I spent a week in Lubbock on business but managed to hook up with some friends. It was a nice change of pace.
The inlaws are in town with the Recreational Vehicle. It's nice to see them again. If we can convince the rest of her side of the family to move up here (hint hint) perhaps they will come up here permanently?
I caught Sonic Youth live in Portland on 08/30. Rad! I had completely forgotten that Jim O'Rourke was playing with them. His addition really creates some new sounds. The set wasn't very surpristing (cause Ev already gave me a good idea about what they're playing live right now), but the show really kicked some ass. 2 encores though? A little strange. Hmmmm....I suppose I can live without Bumbershoot since I saw them down here.
I posted 4 new sets of pictures in the photos section, some newer than others. Enjoy and come back soon!
I don't give a fuck what AMD says, this article is 100% accurate. A heat sink falling off an Athlon will cause instant failure of the CPU. And smoke.
I learned this the hard way.
Out of nowhere, the fuckin thing fell off. I wasn't 100% sure that I had it on securely after I put on the thermal paste, although my pulling in various directions seemed to hint that it was. The horrible position of some caps on this retarded ASUS board didn't help matters much.
So now my main box is toast. Smoked. Literally.
I'm stuck either scrapping this crappy thing entirely (which is what a smart person would probably do) or buying a new CPU to see if the MB is kaput as well. I wonder if any vendors would be willing to work with me on this...I know that most of them do not like to exchange CPUs for any reason. Fuck. I am not happy.
In my continued attempt to phase out the Infiltration Lab name stuff and phase in noisybox.net, I have created a new logo (see above). Sure, it's nothing special and it looks a lot like the old logo and I cranked it out pretty quickly...but it's still something. Again, those bookmarks should be updated to http://noisybox.net.
I should really get around to fixing the bug I discovered in ChachScan the other day. It's a single character bug caused by an improper array size declaration. Ug, I only found that because somebody emailed me asking about some code and I happened to see it. I suppose since I don't have dev studio installed (yet) on my box I'll have to do it on my work machine. No biggie.
I should also get around to working on the silly little article that I started for Wirehed Magazine the other day.
...and I should clean up the office and unpack some boxes and take out the trash and get out of the house more, but ultimately I'm lazy.
