Yeah right

The new computer...

It's great... besides a few things... I can't get the ethernet card to work without opening the box... for some reason it shares IRQ with the GeForce4 board... and that makes the ethernet card come and go... it looses link, like if the cable was unplugged... and a few seconds later it reconnects... telling me it's on a 10mbit network, just to disconnect a few later... very annoying... oh well, I've put it to work anyway... crunches random RC5 packets... it's gonna improve my Distributed.net stats a whole lot as it crunches packet at 3.1Mkeys/s... my old P133 does the same task at 180Kkeys...

Watched Shrek the other day... on AVI version... and Joan of Arc this morning... a pretty crappy rip, the sound was lagging about 5 seconds through the whole movie... but I liked it...

The chassis issue... might be coming to an end... a friend told me last night he had a few empty chassis that he was about to toss away... I'm gonna adopt them... to house the naked Pentium boards I got a few weeks back...

Yeah right

Hmm...

The Spy Cam eats batteries... I've had it for a few days and now the first set of batteries are running flat... ehm... taken about ~250 pictures with it... that might explain it...

I like it anyway... it produces pretty good images for being such a cheapo thingy... I paid about $60 to get a 0.1megapixel camera... pretty low... me thinks.
