Gaming, Modding and Computing Stuff.
On the gaming front, I have "reclocked" Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 on Hardcore mode and I'm glad it's over. It is extremely hard, especially the last mission; I lost a couple of teammates when they were fast-roping out of the helicopter at the start of the mission...crazy level designers, that mission is hard enough on easy or normal mode.
On the more creative side: I have not finished as many 3D models as I would have liked to, maybe I'll dedicate this last week to finishing a few models off. It might be time for me to do another fighter or a tank.
Above you can see a photo of a CPU die. It looks complicated, because it is. That is a CPU that has 8 cores and 24MB of cache. That might not mean much to most, but to the technically inclined, it's a hell of a lot of computing power. Speaking about power, one CPU consumes about 180W of power, compare that to the monstrous Nvidia GeForce GTX 295 card which guzzles about 290W of power, you are going to need a pretty big power supply for that!
Over these holidays I wanted to go out and take photos of landscapes and cityscapes, but the weather has been rotten (even though we need the rain), so this hobby has to wait for a while.
Whilst out driving, I've realised that there are some people who need some anger management classes, glasses, a reality check or just some plain commonsense. Is it too much to ask that people obey the road rules? In some situations I'd only feel safe driving a tank, while some people think they are driving tanks and do whatever they like.
You can probably notice that I need more sleep, some sentences may be incoherent or I may just be completely random, I should really stop staying up so late...well I don't stay up on purpose.
Just one last thing: What is the best game soundtrack(s) that you have heard?
Gaming. Building Stuff. Sleeping. Talk later.
Good Gaming and Good Modding.
