  • 08:17 I can definitely feel the effects of having a new bike wheel. Biking to work an hour and a half ago was no exercise at all. #
  • 08:52 eMusic is raising the price of my plan by $35/year while dropping tracks per month from 75 to 35. Fuck that. At least I'm paid up until 2011 #
  • 10:09 Someone has microwaved pasta, or it's being catered nearby. I can smell marinara sauce. *hungry*, and the cafe doesn't open for an hour. #
  • 11:01 For the second time, won $50 from a Bike to Work incentive. This time, it's at Amazon, which is way more useful than Bellevue Square Mall. #

  • 14:26 When the hell did C# add lambda expressions to the language? Back to math class for me, I think. o.o #
  • 14:40 Amazon's sale-of-the-moment: nVidia GeForce GTX260 SC 896MB. Can someone tell me how that will perform compared to my 8800GT 512MB? #
  • 17:35 Eating dinner; about to disassemble both of my desktop computers (including this one) to swap sound cards, trying to isolate sound problems. #

It would perform over 40% better according these bechmarks. I wouldn't get it myself, I've got a 8800 GTS 512.

I only got a 1680x1050 display. I'm waiting for the 1920x1200 120Hz displays to pop around to change my motherboard for a SLI one and get a new video card and a 2nd video card later for the needs.

Oh, and 1 game that might really take a benefit right now from this much memory would be GTA4 at the highest settings. The video memory usage can go close to 1GB whatever the resolution you are using. :O
