Week 18 - Summer Sun Has Come

The past week passed by as normal, with work and studies and walks and buddies.

I spent Saturday at buddy Bear's place with a bunch of people, celebrating his move to a new apartment and his newly celebrated Birthday. I gave a plant and a candle holder in salt stone, and a little temperature-controlled water-powered LED light for a tap. It was revealed that the good people in Hong Kong probably don't use the same tap size as in Sweden, ARGH, because it didn't fit. But it did work when you held it under running water, so hopefully it'll be fixable one way or another. We went bowling in the middle of the night (won 2 outta 3... aint bad), ate a taco buffet and chips and dip for breakfast the next day.

I took a long walk on a quest for deserted golf balls in thorny brush and the first bicycle ride of the year with my cousin on Monday and Wednesday, both graceful days with plenty of sunrays to pave your face. The weather's been mostly blissful, and existence drifts in whiffs of... sniffable pitfulls (what rhymes).

I Watched Speed (1994) on Sunday night while placing bids on a few computers, and guess what, I got one. It's not just any computer either, it's going to be a beast! With an AMD FX-8120 processor, 8 cores @ 3,10 Ghz (8MB cache), 8/32GB RAM and a Radeon HD 5850 GPU with a whooping 1GB memory... it looks like I'll finally get to play GTA 4. Something in the back of my mind is telling me that maybe the GTA games only work on Intel processors, but that can't be, can it? If it can then can it, I'm hyped. I can't wait! I am waiting, but damn, it's a grand weight. The computer also has Windows 7 Ultimate installed, which means I should be able to emulate some old OSes this time around, making it possible to run both new and old games without swapping machines.

My current computer, which I proudly announced at the verge of the new year 2010 here, has 2 cores @ 2,50 Ghz (1MB cache), 3/8GB RAM and a nameless GPU which has been making it difficult to run all games I'd like to run. It does run Oni, and Doom, and Knytt, and 8Bit Killer and Need For Speed Underground... but it doesn't run GTA SA properly, and it doesn't run GTA 4 at all, and I haven't even tried any of other new games I've bought these past couply of years, because... why bother. Might be a time issue too. It's not like I'll suddenly have time to play all the greatest games of the past couple of years to my hearts content, but maybe just one or two... or ten or a hundred. Man I'm in a good mood today, but today is this week and this post is about the last. I'll just conclude with: it's been a blast. And here's 16/17, the first dual post of the year. See you next week; maybe earlier!

Playing With Hexels

Blazing Peak of Blue Cloud

Is it a torch? A sword of destiny? An octagonally caged interpretation of a mountain with a blister of sky? I intended neither in my desire to try out this entertaining program, but it's surprisingly interpretable. I think I'll be having plenty of fun with this...

Week 16 & 17 - Civilization Void

We flew up to Kangos during week 16, Tuesday. I stayed up late on Monday plowing through assignments I'd need to hand in in advance. Usually I find myself pushing them papers ahead of me until it's suddenly Sunday and I stay up all night fixing them (at least that's been the routine lately) but this time I was forced to differ. Start of good habits, maybe. The flight didn't take long, we met up with a couple of friends, hitched a ride to Grandma's place, and there spent the remaining week.

The snow was still thick on the ground up North. Half the week it rained, and the other half the sun reigned. I sat on the upper balcony and soaked it in occasionally, surprised that it can be so warm even though the landscapes remind of winter. Apart from greedily soaking in sunshine, I shoveled snow, kept the furnace burning and read three books. I know I jotted down the titles somewhere, but all the info you'll get for now is: they were good.

Vacation was good too, the little that was left to savor after extreme bouts of physical labor, probably better than it would've been if it would've been constant and not a limited luxury. It's like eating a meal after a long walk: it always tastes better! On Tuesday last week we flew back to Bro. I spent the rest of the week catching up on studies/work/NG/anime, playing Doom, recording gameplay footage from Doom, thinking I should post my weekly post and now I am, far in on week 18, making it seem like the vacation was like a dream, longer than it was, just like Oz with the moss falling off. Last week.

Long Processing

9813 minutes remaining.

YouTube aint what it used to be. :(



Behold. Cyberdevilian design. Masterpiece of metal and scraps.

I call 'im Jim.

Quick Old Poem

Digging through textfiles, and I found one I hadn't posted. :) It probably sounds better if you rap it. Maybe I'll get a recording of this done eventually...

I haven't added any poems on the site since last year
Haven't added any sound or new designs it's just clear
A shitload of things on my computer to go through
And when I do that I might just do some uploads too

It's not like I haven't written anything I write lines
Every day and some days I write them many times
But my time's no fun nay it runs out constantly
I want to ask it "what the hell do you want from me?"

But now I'm back, desk clear and I'll keep it that way
