Grr. Why is the laptop so slow? Video playback lagging?



Oh no! Somebody swapped my CPUs out for... wow, I guess overclocking has come a long way.

In other tech news, my former employer has swept out all the personal servers we left connected with very little notice (which is sort of fair enough, since most people have long since left, but showing uncharacteristic levels of efficiency to have noticed after barely a year), so gallery and webcam are down until further notice. This makes me sad. Suggestions on hosting 4G of images and a persistent video transcoder gratefully accepted.

And yes, I shall soon blog about the awesomeness that is my birthday Kindle from msvyvyan. I started writing about it here, but it turned into too mcuh excitably lurid prose, 'coz it's seriously excellent. Not so much for the device itself as potential implications on industry and reading habits.

Aww I noticed I couldn't see Oliver earlier. Whenever I can't sleep I try and catch a glimpse but he's always hiding...

Aww shit I forgot then I remember then I forgot then I was reminded. .. Happy Birthday!

I hear that our data centre ran out of power which motivated the proficient turning off of servers ... now I left that employer 9 months ago and they had run out of power then, so I don't think its quite as efficient as you make out :-)

Funnily, I actually once owned a dual 486dx 33mhz. It was an old Unisys System V server. It had a whopping 128mb of ram, in 1mb SIMMS, a couple of SCSI disks and a tape backup drive.

I bought it from some guy via the Trading Post, who had found it at an auction house. It had all these files on it from the Victorian Department of Planning (or something).

I almost wish I hadn't chucked it out, now. :(
