In the last week or so, i've added a few more goodies to Trogdor (the computer I built recently). These are the last upgrades/additions that I've got planned for the thing, at least for the short to medium-term future.
I added another 2GB of RAM to the thing to bring it up to a total of 4GB (totally overkill, but the prices of RAM will only go up from here-on-out, so better to get it now than later), and also added a 500GB Western Digital Hard Disk to serve as my main storage drive.
I also bought a new fan to replace the original Antec case one with the intention of making the computer more quiet, but despite the specifications of the fan being quieter than the original case one, it actually turned out to be much louder. So i'm back with the original fan and out of pocket $30 :(.
Anywho, a internal pic of the updated Trogdor below:
Today I didn't go to work, after feeling sick last night and this morning. I blame the horribly expensive and just plain horrible Earth'n'Sea pizza that we had at the family dinner last night. I wasn't feeling well at all this morning, but it got better throughout the day without me having to restart my new streak again, thankfully. I don't know what it is with sickness and me lately, i think i've taken more sick days in the last few weeks (only 3) than I have in the entire of the previous year!
Anywho, I did a few geeky things today that i've been wanting to do for a while. I've finally installed VMware on the new computer and had a play with a few virtual machines. I also finally had a good session playing Lost Planet that was delivered from Hong Kong a week ago. This is probably the first proper DirectX 10 game, and the visuals in it are absolutely amazing even if the game itself is so-so.
