Project Mara MKIIjawaproSun 05/02/2006 09:18 PM
This post is for anyone who is interested in what I am getting for my new computer. It´s still not going to be a BEAST, but it´ll be a lot faster than my current one, and I have to be under budget.
My current system is:
CPU: AMD 1600
Graphics: Geforce 3 Ti 200
HDD: 1x40G 1x80G
My current server is:
CPU: Pentium II something
The New System will replace the current Jadesfire, and the current Jadesfire will replace the current Mara. Confused?
I dont know what will happen to the current Mara...
But just to be confusing, the current Jadesfire will be modified before it becomes the new Mara. First it gets a new Harddrive, a 200G one. The 2 drives that are currently in it will be moved accross to the new System. Also, the Geforce 3 will be replaced with another card that has a working TV-out setup. The Geforce 3 is supposed to, but I cant get it working.
Ok - on to the new Jadesfire, this is the exciting part.
The case is a fairly plain ANTEC case, similar to the picture below, only black not silver.
Name: Jadesfire MKII
CPU: AMD 3200+
RAM: 1G (2x512mb)
HDD: 1x40G 1x80G
Graphics: Nvidia 6600GT
After walking all over town, and the internet, this is the best system I can get for the price. Hopefully it´ll keep me happy for a few years. It had better do, seeing as how I am spending more money on it then I´ve spent on anything except my car...
So now I´m just waiting for the computer shop (Tasmanian Principle Computers) to get the harddrive in. I am buying a 200G IDE drive instead of SATA, because it´s going in the old PC not the new one.
Weekend ReportjawaproSun 05/02/2006 09:18 PM
I went down to my cousin´s 18th birthday party for the weekend. I gave him a Pentium III computer. I made sure it could play a few decent games and things - so hopefully he´ll like it.
On another front, Project Mara MKII is proceeding. I have actually ordered the PC, I´m just waiting for a few parts to arrive at the computer shop.
On the way down the Midlands we noticed a pretty cool sight. Someone has gone to the trouble of making a replica of Stonehenge out of large square bales of hay! I took some photos, and we werent the only ones, another car pulled up to take photos while we were there.
LAN partyjawaproFri 27/01/2006 09:18 PM
We finally had another LAN party in Exeter last night. We stopped a while ago because we just got too busy to do it regularly anymore. Not a huge turn-out this time, but a heap of fun all the same.
Apparently the next one will be a strategy LAN - I can´t wait!
We didnt stay as late as many of the LANs have gone in the past, but it was still too much for Dan, who went to sleep on one of the seats. Unfourtuantly Andy woke him up JUST before I took the photo.

Hey Guys, I have spent the last few days (yes, it took quite a while) putting all my lego sets together, in order to see what pieces I am missing. It all started when my cousins came over to play for a while, and then I decided to see what I was missing.
Well, I´ve completed a list now, and it´s on the website. Go to The Most Wanted Lego List to see what I´m after. If you happen to have any of these pieces and want to sell them, let me know.

I have returned home to my folks house, as my Uncle and Aunt needed the house I was house-sitting. Very inconsiderate of them really....
Anyway - I am getting close to implementing project ´MARA MKII´, which will be awesome.
By the way - the cartoon dude is supposed to be me. What do you think? Look like me?
