ping – Part 2

Posted on Sunday 1 April 2007

OK, so if it wasn’t obvious before, it certainly is now, because four days ago I wrote, “I’ll post a few of entries on consecutive days.” Well, sod that, I’m just gonna put it all into one, otherwise more stuff will pile up while I, no doubt, procastinate further.

Slip – Part 1

Posted on Wednesday 28 March 2007

OK, I know, I’m slipping, shut up. Anyway, multiple things to post about, since when they occured I promptly didn’t post about them. So I’ll post a few of entries on consecutive days to cover the various things I should have said but didn’t. Therefore, without further ado, I present … MENSA. Ado (dammit).

All Of Them Shiny, I Assure You

Posted on Friday 23 March 2007

I started writing this at 23:33, so I’m gonna say that this counts as a thursday post, which would be two days after my tuesday post, which is what I was aiming for. In any case, meh, it’s well within the three day limit. For those that don’t remember, I’m referring to when I said this, From now on, (until I start slipping again), updates will be no more than 3 days apart, preferably less. I’ll aim for 2.

The Great Rewiring

Posted on Tuesday 20 March 2007

So I finally got pissed off at having 5.1 speakers and an awesome sound card, but only getting stereo sound. It’s quite retarded really that the S/PDIF output on my sound card only supports stereo sound, although it can quite happily output AC3 audio from DVD’s … which is surround sound. It’s something to do with Creative refusing to pay license fees for Dolby Digital audio and instead pushing their own EAX audio … or something.

Frets On Fire

Posted on Sunday 18 March 2007

I was referred to a new game by Milkman on MSN, ’tis an … interesting game. Basically it’s a clone of Guitar Hero for the Playstation 2, and it’s somewhat addictive. As you may have already guessed, it’s called Frets On Fire. It doesn’t take a beast of a computer to run it, a graphics card might help but is not essential.
