    • Thursday update ;-)

      Yeah, it's thursday. For those wanting to hear the show tonight I'll have to appologize as it's been cancelled due to the foster dog staying with the owner of the place we cast from (and my co-host) kinda destroyed the downstairs bathroom...spinning him in to a dimension of pissed off. We'll be back next week and I invite you to check out our previous episodes at www.iugaming.com.

      On a lighter side, my watercooling kit came in. On the darker side, I'm short 2 hoses....ARGH!! Oh well. I've been meaning to get pictures of it all before I started anyway so while I wait for my additional tube-age, I'll see about getting those images up.

      Super, busy week at work too :-( I had to skip lunch today due to a server emergency. But it's 5:00 now so off I go! The leftovers in the fridge be calling me name!

    • Just has to get this out a day early

      Oh, and happy belated 4th of July to my United States peepz.

      I just wanted to say that I've officially gone out of my #&$^%*#@( mind! As per my previous journal rant on the inherent flaws with my computer case, I've gutted the front bezel of all its bay plates and spec'd out the craptacular watercooling setup that will become the basis for my overclocking adventure. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't go overboard with the "flare". Here's the list of what will soon encompass my largest modding endeaver to date...even if it is my first smiley8.gif

      First, the stuff that makes sense:
      Pump: Danger Den - Mag II LE
      Water Block: Copper RBX w/ Bronze Top
      Coolant: Non-Conductive MCT-40 ...I'm just a tad fearful
      Thermal Adhesive: Arctic Silver 5

      And now....why'd I do this? I guess it will look cool...
      Tank: ThermalTake Aquabay M3
      Radiator: ThermalTake Aquabay M2
      Level & Flow Indicator: ThermalTake Aquabay M1

      I'm sure I could have saved money by not going with the Aquabay's, but for now I'll just be fearful my pump is not strong enough to pull the liquid through all the intermediaries. I'll let you know how well it works. If I can get ful power from my pump I'll see about adding a waterblock for my ATI card...and the north bridge.

      Ok, rant over. I'll have to post something tomorrow for the podcast. Maybe get you all some pictures of my gutted case and why I'm going crazy with this project.

      *edit*
      Oh, and I'm sure I could have gotten better performance from 1/2" tubing instead of the 3/8" that I chose, but for my first time doing this, I figure it's safest to go with industry standards (all prefitted and leakproof guaranteed)

    • I actually got shtuff to report?!

      13 years ago

      omegawolf

      Hey all. It's been about two weeks since my last journal post...but at least it's a Thursday posting so it's in accordance with my stats smiley8.gif

      So what's new? Well, I got the parts in for my new computer...the reviews are mixed and so are my emotions. I guess my current complaints have to do with my choices for video card, case, CPU Sink, and processor.

      The gory details as follows:
      AeroCool Case
      ATI Radeon X1800GTO (Crossfire ready!)
      AMD Athlon64 3700+
      Typhoon CPU Heatsink

      Of the things I could change (or at least not too lazy to upgrade without pulling everyhing apart), I got myself a new processor. For those wondering, I started with an AeroCool case...which opens on the LEFT and the power supply is ON THE *$&% FLOOR....which caused a ton o' problems for me but hey, I'll make it work, despite the fact it'll suck in dust like no ones business and the fan placements for the case directly conflict with where the hard drives are supposed to go. So yes, I moved the drives and now can close the case...except it OVERHEATS!! AEROCOOL OVERHEATS?!?! That's like the definition of oxymoron. Plus, I desperately need to cool this thing down as well as overclock it which leads to my next b******* point....

      ATHLON64 3700+?!?! WHY???? I think I was high when I placed my order. I really wanted a dual core so I don't know what I was thinking. I ate the cost on this one and exchanged...ha ha, exchange...I BOUGHT a new chip....an AMAZING Operton 170 which seems to take to overclocking like a fish to water. I'm happy with this change...so who wants to buy a slightly used Athlon64? smiley6.gif

      Remember when I said that case overheated? Well, my graphics card decided to barf itself running at normal speed so I had to "underclock" it to be able to play any games. And now with my little overclocking adventure it'll just get worse. And by the way? The typhoon? FRIGGIN HUGE! I ain't putting that thing in to my case...and I can't send it back to NewEgg....anyone wanna buy a never used Typhoon?

      There's a silver lining here though. This prompted me to...ok, after playing Need for Speed: Most Wanted waaaay too much...to "modify" my car, I mean PC, for performance. Therefore in the next week I'll be updating on the water cooling system I installed within the case as well as the system controlled fans, temp gagues, and ram sinks. Everything is on order so far except for the water cooling....I think I'm going with the Danger Den - RBX for the processor and for the video card...ok, I didn't get that far. I'm still researching. I'll let you know.

      On the job front, I didn't get the position in Michigan so I'll be here in Indiana for just a bit longer. That's cool because it looks like our podcasts might make it to radio...LIVE! I'll definately keep you all posted on that...and since it's Thursday, that means it's podcast night! Check out the link for connection details!

      Thanks for the B-day wishes all. Everything is still going pretty nuts on my end so like last week I don't got a lot of time to hang around RvB. I'm told that these periods go in cycles so maybe I'll get my sanity back some time? smiley4.gif

      But hey! Hear me make an ass of myself tonight. I think I pulled the "sexual circumstances in games" topic from the hat for tonight.

      omegawolf

      Hey all, it's Thursday which, statistically speaking cuz' my stats tell me so, is the day I make my journal entries. As per the last Journal, nope, nothing spectacular happened so of course I'm now depressed. Didn't find love Friday, broke my back helping friends move their shizzle on Saturday, hung over in pain (both body and mind) Sunday, and my computer PSU burst in to flames on Monday...and no, that wasn't an exageration. Really, you should have seen it. On top of this, my birthday is this coming monday...wooo. Another year gone by without fulfilling those dreams you had planned (wow, so this is what happens when I make morning posts?)

      On the only positive note so far, the combustian of my PSU prompted me to spec out and order the parts for my new machine from NewEgg. I'll get a list up later but in the mean time just know it's CrossFire capable. All you ATI-haters can go back to licking your posters of Dawn and Dusk smiley8.gif

      So for this weekend according to Jeff Foxworthy, "I want a Beer, and I want to see Something Naked." Wise words from a wise...uhm...he is a Redneck, right? Ah, what the hell? I can go Redneck for a night. Lets hope for beer and nuditiy! Oh the folly of wanting a beer and seeing something naked when all you really need is a hug and a cookie smiley5.gif Maybe a kiss or two but I guess that's negotiable.

      For everyone else still reading, Thursday is PodCast day for the IUCGC. Click the link below to our forums for connection information and how to "AIM-in" during the broadcast: The previous casts can be found at: IUGAMING.com

    • Thursday!

      13 years ago

      omegawolf

      Well...I've pretty much survived the week with a another day to go. I guess it's getting easier little by little but...ok, I really need to get hammered. How long has it been since I said that? If I don't have a story to post for you all on Monday I'll be severely depressed smiley4.gif

      BTW, a BIG thank you to m117chief for the sponsorship. That's like, huge...you da man! As soon as I find a way to send beer through the mail I'll owe you a pint or two. smiley8.gif

      I heard the craziest thing on the radio the other day. The month of May is supposedly the luckiest month of the year. So all I got to say is...is it over yet? Can I poke my head of my burrow and not see my shadow? Although, hibernation sounds pretty tempting. Not much more to update you all with...everything is pretty much the same as it was yesterday.

      On another note, I've forgotten to remind you people about thursdays and the podcasts. Head on over to www.iugaming.com and check out the podcast link for our ltest and greatest. Tonights is slated for 8pm so I expect all...1...2 of you to tune in ;-P Connection instructions can be found under general chatter in the forums...or in most of my old journal entries. At least the latest one with connection instructions...I think...GO TO THE WEB SITE FORUMS will ya? At least then I know we're all on the same page.

    • Gone fishing?

      13 years ago

      omegawolf

      No, not fishing. Where have I been all this time? I'm not sure. Last I checked I'm moved in to my new place across town and things at work seemed to REALLY pick up. On top of that it looks like I may end up getting an offer from a very reputable Financial Consulting firm located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. So that makes the current moods...excited, freaked, vexed, and utterly disoriented. More on that later. Kinda wish I could disappear for a while but that just ain't in the cards...oh well. Things always work out in the end, right?

    • It's ALIVE!!!!

      13 years ago

      omegawolf

      Yeah, I'm still alive. I moved out of my old apartment on Sunday and now live on the other side of town with my many, many pets...I mean, cardboard boxes. I always get those two mixed up. Unpacking is going sloooooow, especially with me needing some Oblivion time for myself...for 5 hours a day. On the plus side, my phone is on, I got internet, and I now have the privalege of sweet, sweet TIVO ownership ;-) I should really mess around with it some time , but I got a lot more unpacking and Oblivion to do.

      Wow, you all sure do a lot of journal entries. Did I mention I'm swamped as well? More and more stuff just "seems" to fall in to my jurisdiction...I so don't get paid enough for this. Maybe I'll get some time to do some reading and responding...you know, i can hear you *groan* from here. ;-P

      I've decided to build my next computer though. It's a bit too pricey to do what I originally intended to do and stuff it in to a modded suitcare / atache case. I'm going to attempt an ATI CrossFire system. I'll take some pics and make some posts once the parts come in.

      It's graduation / finals week here at IU so the town is pretty much packed with people moving and what not...I think I'll hide in my new place until things die down. Bars should be interesting though...literally everyone and their mom...and dad...and cousins...and...you get the idea, will be out on the weekend. Use your imagination.

      And as per every week on this day, Podcast tonight:

      With Winamp
      Right click anywhere on the window and go to Play->URL, in the input box enter: the-seraphim.com:8000/iugaming.mp3 (case-sensitive)

      With ITunes
      Go to Advanced->Open Stream and put in the-seraphim.com:8000/iugaming.mp3 (case-sensitive)

      With beep-media player
      Open up a terminal and type beep-media-player the-seraphim.com:8000/iugaming.mp3 (yes it's still case-sensitive!)

      It should last anywhere between 45-60 minutes, and it will cover a range of current topics that are prevalent in the industry. If you have something you'd like to discuss with us: Scopes just registered the AIM screen-name iugaming. We will be broadcasting live with a minimal delay, so we should get to you pretty quickly, unless your dumb.

      Catch you all later

      To be quite honest I'm not sure what would be the best method. I hope that the people running this have a better ultimate goal than what I can think of for options. It seems as though they would actually keep the kids in the country and just give them an education and try to keep them safe, etc., but I'm not sure how well it would work once they get a lot of kids into this due to the fact that it would most definetly attract attention.

    • Strider165

      13 years ago

      Omega...I'm not sure jumping into the war ourselves would be the best idea because I mean...it's been going on for a long time and I'm sure neither side would really appreciate it. However, I think steps could be taken to keep the kids out of it as I said in my earlier comment.
