    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    yeah, sometimes though they can overheat quite quickly. Usually i'd put plastic cable ties around the IDE (or SATA II) cables, so that they're nice and tucked away, power cables inside, should be bundled up, and also out of the way. If it's a new computer, i wouldn't worry about dust just yet, but if you can, tie the cables out of the way, it'll improve the airflow around the PC.

    Nothing wrong with the Phenom processors. Re-installing Windows might not help the hang up issue. And i am assuming that he bought a new hard drive to go with it. Edit: Some hang ups are caused by overheating,.. not to sound silly, but check the airflow around the inside of your PC. It's a starting point.

    My own blog!

    Oooh, a new fangled addition to the website, fun fun fun. So, after making the choice between Airsoft or a Gaming Computer, i chose Airsoft, which i feel is the right decision. But after the hard drive crashed on my main computer,.. well, i've been consigned to the laptop until i get a new computer! Anyway: Some new clone guns have come unto the market, tempting me to the point of narrowing it down to the Warrior L96, or the A&K M249 MKII,.. both have there good points and bad points, but with a bit of TLC they would make perfect skirmish tools for me. Also, the VCRA has now come in, which restricts, but not completely eliminates legit skirmishers from buying new guns, a major victory indeed, however i've also noted the increase in "if i import, do i avoid so, so, so an so" answer is quite simply NO. It's a stupid thing to do, and you risk time in the slam, so be sensible and stay within the law (if your 18 or above). Other shenanigans, well college was good, new assignment, such a doddle for me as it's to do with computers, and it's an easy assignment to do, i mean what is it lately with these new fangled assignments, they're getting easier by the minute, i thought the idea behind college was to learn new things to help you complete your assignment on time (or earlier by my self implied standards), but no the kids from school want em easier, and then complain when i walk away with Distinctions galore! Still, last day today for the half term, so i can be sure of a good sleep the next week. Shall update after half term! Ciao! N_R

    Aha an update!

    So, an update is now. A busy two weeks of coursework, and 5 finished assignments to show for it, alas there done and out the way. Well, what else has been going on in the past 2 weeks, well aside from college and the usual coursework skedadel, i've been making more time to see people, go out and do what men normally do.... when they go out. Now, talk about spreading the love of all things bacterial but, c'mon spreading the cold about is really taking it too far, and during a time when i had alot of coursework to do, really does take the *beep*. And also now getting to grips with this new fangled "Windows Vista Home Premium", .. it's good, and it works exactly how i want it to, best bit is, i managed to squeeze it into a very tiny tower, well hardly a tower, more like a media center type box thing. Coupled with a 19" monitor, not bad for £350, yes you might be wondering what the specs are, but rest assured it isn't the latest Quad Core, 8800GTX, a gazillion mega watt consuming PC, infact it's quite the opposite, specs are as listed below: Intel Core 2 Duo E2150 2.0GHz 1GB DDR2 RAM Intel GX3000 graphics (Who needs to be flash eh?) DVD-RW/CD Burner And a 19" Screen, infact it's so good, i even have a remote for it, so i can watch TV on my computer, but that will be for later. Not bad for £350 eh? So, whats new (Or not new) in the technology world today then? Well, for starters Sony have released the first ever LCD TV that is as thin as a 1p coin, your joking? i hear you say, nope i'm not, but it is only released so far for the Land of the rising sun. Panasonic have taken Plasma TV technology to the next level, by introducing a 103" screen, yes you read it 103 INCHES, and it's high definition, imaging all the latest games on that! Also, the Iphone has been released, whilst it is a pretty impressive little package, it unfortunatly falls foul of the compatability issue's of 3rd party software, something that the Windows Mobile based devices punch on, aside from that, the Iphone has some cool little features, easier to use keyboard (Which as a PDA user, can be a god send sometimes), So what can the Iphone do in the way of business and Office work? .. well i heard that an office was also built in, but whether this will be compatable with MSES (MicroSoft Exchange Server) we shall see. Also, floating around on the Microsoft website is 2 little packages i saw, one to rival Apple in the graphics department, and one that is a new version of Windows Server 2003SE (And having been trained thus far using Windows Server 2003se, CCNA), i'm beginning to wonder whether Windows Server 2008 will address some of the issue's with Windows Server 2003se, such as the Active Directory being too complicated to navigate around, of course for a new person getting to grips with Windows Server. The second package is Microsoft Silverlight 1.0, now having not used this OS i was skeptical at what it could do, but after being demonstrated it in the college, it gave me some insight into web development, and how Silverlight could eventually take over Apple in the graphics department, on the grounds that Silverlight can take hordes loads of graphics software that will make Apple fall flat on there face. Now, Tablet PC's, my god are they a god send of the bulky laptop, simply flip the screen over, and you have it touch screen, what a fantastic idea, and retaining normal OS's, compared to Windows Mobile, for example, the Tablet PC i currently use within the college for my course, runs on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, wireless enabled, fully touch screen, and also has a touch screen QWERTY Keyboard, for those in the know, this saves considerable space when the keyboard folded underneath. However, there will be no doubt, Windows Vista coming onto the Tablet PC, but i fear that it has already started. In all, this has been a busy "technology discovery" for me, learning about new devices, and getting to grips with other software, it's been a busy 2 weeks. I shall provide another technology update next week, hopefully with new devices, TV's, speakers and latest computer componants. Ciao N_R

    Laptops. Why the *beep* does mine keep blue screening itself upon shutdown!? .. Forcing it to restart and perform another shut down. Geez, why don't computers work properly when you need them to.

    OpenGL. Right, ... ¬_¬ my graphics card didn't come with it, .. it took me ages to find the correct one for my card. Why can't all GC's come with OpenGL as standard!

    Well if you had "any" sense, .. you'd ignore it. But as my name was also mentioned in this, .. i don't stand for stick. Now then, .. as i've rested my case, it's up to you and S_B to end it.

    Because jokes like that arent funny in the first place. And as he is my brother, .. about time i came in and stuck up for him. And retalitroy neg reps will be reported immediatly.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    He wasnt accusing you, ... you admitted it. Seeing as S_B is my brother, he being my **** buddy is basically incest, which is not funny, and we're not into it. Sorry, but you really bombed yourself in that time, .. think before you post. Hope you learnt your lesson.
