Pictures

So I posted a few pictures that I took. The original size was very large, 2592 x 1944 and about 2 megs each. Taken with a nice little sony 5 million pixel camera. I took all three of the pictures outside at night with a very slow shutter speed. I think they are pretty cool, I'll post more pictures later.

I am thankful for Google

I got to say, google is quite possibly the best thing that has happened to the internet since....the internet. It has helped me in so many ways at so many times! They just recently went public with their stock; each share is worth, and hanging around 200 dollars. Dayamn is all I have to say to that. Anyway, just wanted to say thanks to google, they are a rich company, and there are a lot of rich bastards working there, but the web wouldn't be the web without them.

Geforce 6800 Ultra

Due to an anonymous post, I have decided to write a little something about my eVGA Geforce 6800 Ultra. This isn't really a review, more of a heads up to anyone that is going to buy it, or thinking about it. The card has a few flaws with heat dissipation. The HSF design is poor and ill-efficient. The fan is placed near the back blowing air toward the center of the case. On top of that the air the fan uses is recycled air from the inside of the case, rather then fresh air from the back. And just to add to the problem all the Heat spreaders are aluminum instead of copper, while they make the card weigh less, they definitely don't help with heat dissipation. What they should have done is had fresh air pulled from the back of the card (where there should be a plentiful supply of air from outside the case either from a front fan or a side fan) blown over the RAM Sinks and the GPU Heat Sink, and out the back of the case! Got to go now, need to go home, might write more when I get home.

It's been a while

Well it has been a while since I posted here for a few reasons. The main one being my last post I made November 22nd. I don't regret that post, and I still hold true to every word, but I was afraid of reading comments on it. I didn't want to read a comment that disagreed with my post because that would piss me off, and believe it or not, I don't like being mad. I would much rather just relax and enjoy life for what it is. Unfortunately I can't do that just yet. I will try to cut back on my swearing and negative comments since this is obviously what drives people away, but then I look at this guys website

http://maddox.xmission.com/

and I can't help but think to myself....WTF!? All this guy does is complain about things, yell at people, and tell everyone what he thinks. So if someone could please explain to me how he has over 152 visitors every minute, AND how he has a pagerank of, like 8, then I would greatly appreciate it. Seriously, if anyone knows for the love of humanity! PLEASE tell me!
