      Since I don't come here very often any more, I haven't gotten around to sharing this with you all yet. At the end of May, I had an album of my electronica/alternative music released on itunes, amazon and about 30 other online retailers. It's pretty exciting, considering I make all of my music on my pc.

      itunes
      Amazon
      Zune
      LastFM

      I also have an account on ReverbNation, which is absolutely awesome - I now have over 500 fans and I'm rank #10 in their alternative charts for my area.

      My soundtrack type music is also progressing nicely, since I've been playing with the sound libraries to see what sort of different sounds I can make. Here's one of my latest pieces (I have done a few since this one, but haven't gotten around to making a video for them yet). I made this in May, shortly after a perfect and eventful holiday to my homeland...

      ...Oh, and I got engaged to my boyfriend :D


      Please spread the word about my album to your friends if you think they would like it :) I would really appreciate it :D

      Some of you may have noticed I've been rather... absent. I've been busy. I've been very busy.

      Recently I got my specially built pc, and since then I've been working out how to compose with the new music libraries I purchased. It's taken time and perseverance, but I think I'm learning. Take a listen for yourself.

      Infinite Prison is my latest composition. Let me know what you think of it :-)

      My Easter Bunny came a little early. Floss (my cat) seems to have misunderstood the concept of the Easter Bunny. Instead of being brought Easter eggs by a kind rabbit, Floss brought me a dead bunny in the middle of dinner and spat it at my feet. It was obviously a gift sad.png Oh dear.

      It's nearly halfway through February and I feel like I haven't posted a journal in ages (probably because I haven't). The job is going well, I've been there about 4 weeks now so I should get my first four-weekly review any time now. I'm learning lots of interesting stuff about internet retailing and vector artwork, plus I get to see lots of nice merchandise that I would never cough up the money to buy. (For those who don't know, I'm working for the company who run this website.)

      Candy, our kitten, has discovered a favourite new prey now as well. She used to like attacking mice and bringing them home. Now, she brings home worms. And I mean your common garden earthworms. Every now and then we'll find one of the poor things squirming around in the hall or kitchen. I think perhaps that she misunderstood a conversation about cats having worms. roll.png

      Is anybody else getting Bulletstorm next week? It looks pretty cool.

      Not very. It's a shame the machinima has fallen by the wayside since the ideas of the whole group amounted to something that was so much fun. But, since it appears we will never get any further with the SBN films, I thought I'd post the product so far for old time's sake.

      Went to see Harry Potter yesterday. I quite enjoyed it. The humour is still present even though the film is a lot darker. The only thing I don't like is that some of the scenes which should be really scary have been toned down a bit too much. I'm curious to see what they've done with the second part.

      Also went to see RED a few weeks back. It was bloody excellent. I think John Malkovich had the most fun part to play. If you haven't seen this film, you really have to.

      Life has been quiet lately, so naturally I have too. Since I haven't posted much lately, I thought I'd give an update.

      1. I keep finding mice (dead and alive) in the house. Those cats keep bringing friends home.

      2. I swear my kitten is running on liquid schwartz.

      3. Slowly starting to get ready for Christmas. I've got most of the presents I need to buy and I've started buying mince pies (yummy).

      4. This Christmas I hopefully get to see my Mum and brother, so I'm looking froward to that.

      5. I've been dabbling in musical composition again. I have to keep it small though since my pc is very temperamental. I think it's going to die sad.png

      6. Still looking for a job too. A decent one.

      That's more or less where things stand just now. How are you guys & gals all doing?

      I voted. Megafire and Buck are breaking even with my vote, lol. I don't even know who that Kman guy that you're up against is.


      No-one knows who he is, he has about 4 friends and most of them seem to have voted already lol.png It's gonna be interesting to see who wins in the Mega/Buck pairing - if Mega wins, it's Soviet civil war. If Buck wins, it's Red vs. Blue all over again lol.png

      That's messed up. The comments'll likely appear suddenly in an hour or so - the databases have been a bit screwy. Gus says they think it's a glitch in SQL, so they're trying to arrange some downtime to upgrade to the latest version in the hope that'll fix it.

      k, with my person atm i'm just trying to level him up because the difficulty curve on this game is as hard as the first one, and if you dont get a higher level it's going to kick your ass hard.

      Yeah, I got a lucky break when I restarted the mission. A healthy application of Shotgunslap to the two Elites who jumped outta the field, then followed my cohorts inside and used them as a distraction for some headshottage, some shotgunface and some knife-to-the-back bigsmile.png One of the pilots even survived lol.png

      The big differences are that with the i7, you also get hyperthreading(essentially turning a quad-core into an 8 core) and Turbo Boost, so that if you need a little extra power, it will give it to you. Core speed really doesn't mean much anymore, honestly. And with most of the Core iX processors, you can overclock anyway, so it doesn't make a huge difference.

      Oh, and the moat thing was actually referring to another piece of British news I came across a few months ago, where one MP used government money to clean the moat of his country estate.

      ...Not nearly as entertaining as this story, though.

      The lag wont be nearly as bad in the full version. Fewer players plus a lack of debug information being sent to beta servers will greatly reduce lag.
