Actually I can...

I can add a blog entry title with contribute. It still sucks as a program though.


Adobe Contribute is for losers! It absolutely sucks!!!!! For fuck sake I can't even add a fucking TITLE to my bloody blog post! Or can I...? You never know with the twisted UI of CONTRIBUTE!!! And anyway Google Chrome loads my pages faster, therefore, I can post to my blog faster with Google Chrome than with a specially designed Blogging tool. Contribute sucks!

More RAM baby!

I just got 2 DDR2 sticks of RAM totalling 4GB (had 2GB previously), which adds up to a total of 6GB of RAM! way to go! It's true that I can run about a thousand apps simultaneously now. it's so cool! Plus the 64 bit versions of Crysis and Crysis Warhead can use 5.5GB if all other apps except the bare minimum stuff is open (windows XP; AVG; etc). The bottleneck now is my CPU. Gonna get a PhenomII at the end of the year provided I get enough money.

Anyway, that's it. PS. this post posted by Adobe Contribute CS4 (just testing it out, haven't used it before).

Upgrading my Computer

I am going to buy some new computer parts today so my compter will now be a super fast machine (I guess that it will run 4 times as fast after the upgrade.)

So I guess you wan't me to tell you what I am going to get? Well here is the list:
  • Akasa 8cm Fan Filter - This ought to keep my PC clean
  • Nexus 80mm Silicon Absorber - And this ought to keep my PC quiet, I am going to be running the fans at 60% to 80% of there maximum speed to make it "super silent"
  • Xilence Red Wing 80mm Quiet Fan - These fans are made of really heavy plastic so it takes a while to start, but once it has started it will spin for ages, and it can cut your finger! They are quiet fans too so I will be having a noise revolution.
  • Akasa AK 965 (Socket 775) Aluminium with Copper Base Processor Cooler - This is a really cool (as in good and cold) processor cooler that I will be getting to keep my CPU at 30 degrees, or to over clock it with if I so wish in the future.
  • Akasa AK-MX004 High Performance thermal compound and TIM Clean fluid bundle - I will be using this to clean off the rubbish that you always find on the CPU's and cooler's that you are "supposed" to use instead of thermal compound. How ever I will not be using the thermal compound that it comes with........
  • Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound Thermal paste 3.5gram - ...........I will be using this, it is pretty much the best thermal compound that money can buy. I will probably keep the thermal compound from the bundle, even if I only use it for low-importance jobes, It is still very good, and it is made of silver.
And coming up for the big one.............

  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 (3.16GHz) Socket 775 Wolfdale 1333FSB 6MB L2 Cache - I will be getting this whopper of a processor for my computer! Even though it technically has .14GHz less than my Celeron D, it is much more efficient per a cycle and I will probbably have a quadropal performance boost!!!!!!!

Well I will post again when it has all arived/I have installed it.

Too slow

I have just decided that this blog is too slow and that that is a reason why I don't post on it so often so I am going ot do something about it such as decrease the length of posts shown.

I have also just installed 3 amazing Firefox addons they are:

Speed Dial - If you don't know what speed dial is then 1) Have a look at the Opera browser 2) don't come to this blog anymore as it is too techie for you (well maybe not, but almost every one knows what speed dial is)

iMacros - If you always need to log on to your Webmail or Blogger account every day (or even every week) which requires clicking on a link, typing in your user name and passwork and then clicking on your inbox, then this is the plugin for you. It can automate what ever you do in Firefox, just press the record button, go to your webmail address, type in your username and password, and click on your inbox, then hit the stop button. Next time all you need to do is click on the Macro and it will take you straight there! (It is actually quite fun to watch it zipping between pages doing what ever you told it to do) And if you do really want to do some coding they are text based and you can edit them at will.

AutoPager - Everyone uses google to search for stuff regualarily, but don't you just hate it when you have to scroll down the page a little and then click on the 'next' link and then wait for the page to load and scroll wond, click next, wait, etc? Well this plugin automatically adds the next page to the bottom of the page that you are vewing and then you can just keep on scrolling!

I have also found a really good gnome app called:
Gnome Do - As its name might imply, Gnome Do can do almost anything. Summon it up with Super + Space and then just start to type, as you do, Gnome Do displays the results it finds on your machine. The clever part is that these results can include almost anything. If you're searching for an application name, an icon will appear from which you can run it. Press Tab and the icon on the right is enabled, and from here you can press cursor down to list any other options for the same search result, you can also just type for the option. It's functionality is endless because it is expandable by plugins so if one of the plugins already there does not do what you wan't you can just make a new one! For instance the Microblogging plugin will let you add your typed search to your Twitter of Identi.ca account. This is by fare the quickest method to update your status from the Linux desktop.
I.E. You have to get it!
