Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

The other day, chatting with Harita for a long 1-1/2hrs, digging into the past, reviewing my sins (yea well.. some consider acquiring bandwidth a sin!), I started thinking about ‘me’. For a second I assumed “I am very dangerous” (computers wise). Erm, thats what I felt first, considering what I am capable of. But, thinking deeper I reaized, I am just a n00bie (newbie)! and that there are hundreds of thousands who are 1337er (elite) and millions on the same level as me. I’m such a n00b that I dont even know what the elite are capable of and I never had crimial intentions of any kind. So, in conclusion I am as safe as a firefly :D.

Right now I’m extemely Happy!! guess why! I am writing this post from teh ‘monster’!! YES! Its finally awake! Its been 4 weeks since I de-commissioned it. Its still not at its full potential though, only 512megs of RAM (1 gig originally) and 160Gigs HDDs (480gigs stock capacity). I finally can enjoy some kick ass games now. Its been 16hrs since it started and it showed no signs of fatigue, no hardware issues, especially the hard disks. I hope it stays the same till I get a new PSU (SMPS). The problem what I figured out was that the power cables were so fuxed that the hdds turned on and off randomly. But now thanks to Gigabyte, their cables seem to be working fine :).

Just started NFS: Most Wanted, cool game, excellent graphics. Shadows seem pixellated though. The bloom effect, aka Extra bright effect looks really cool. The glare, timeshift, police chases everythign add to the beauty of the game. I am gonna finish it in these holidays!

Have some friends coming over, so have to end it here for now.
And btw, the title has nothin to do with the post, hhmmm wait.. may be it does.. I don know figure it out :P.

Ow! God Damn it!

I got ripped off!! 250rs down the drain! fking shit! why? I gave my RAM module for repair ( I know its not normal for RAMs to be repaired, but it was a desperate attempt to revive monster) and that guy said it was working and that he replaced some on-off circuit in the module, but when I came back and tested it, it didnt boot the system!! fsck!! I dont understand, it booted on that asshole’s computer. Man that guy is so screwed next time I go to CTC! I am gonna get my fucking money back!! God damn it!!!!

/me tries to cool down.. 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 ……
/me takes a deep breath

Anyway, was reading a friend’s blog, here, tis all philosophical, one point got my attention though. It said “One just needs to work in the right direction without caring much about the results”. This reminded me of some sloka .. or whatever they call it, which states something on similar lines. I dont understand, why would anybody do something, if it isnt for the results? You prepare for exams to get good marks, you work your ass off to make a perfect model. Well if you dont care about the marks or the model why in the world would you prepare or work like a dog? Yes I argree, one should not worry too much about the results, I guess its all about balance. This is what I posted on his blog, hehe, hope he understands my confusion.

I will write about my principles and thoughts some other day. Today is not the day coz they may be biased.

Leaving philosophy there, lez get back to the g33k stuff. As soon as I came home I read something which made all the saliva in my mouth drip like a leaking muncipal water tanker left open. It was about the QUAD SLI nVidia is working on. Dell showed off their masterpiece at CES 2006 Dell’s Quad SLI , 4.26GHz, Dual Core XPS Renegade System. It has 4 7800GTX512s on a 4-way SLI (Scalable Link Interface), HOLY FUCK! That adds up to 2GB of VRAM there itself!!! and they OCed the processor to 4.26 GHZ!!! KICK ASS! This sounds reallllly exciting but coming out of the dream world, real world performance is what matters. When MS moves to DX10 and PS4.0, this will obviously be rendered “outdated”, till then atleast this will be the most powerful gaming machine ever made.

Also Intel seems to have everything going their way now, after the huge failure of the prescott line of processors, everyone turned to AMD, but now they got it right with the Core Duo line, ofcourse they are mobile processors but they offer performances on par with the Athlon X2s. I hope Intel comes with some cool new desktop proccies too!. BTW Intel changed their logo! It not “Intel Inside” anymore!!!

It was

but its now

Great! Go Intel Go! 😛

PS: I am not a great fan of AMD :P, and I am running out of ‘decent’ sp quotes, so read them only if you wanna!

Woke up late, left home late. (Lucky the bus waits for everyone to arrive, I was the second last one today). Got screwed in EDC exam :(. Was kicked out of the IT workshop coz a classmate forgot to bring my observation book he took 2 weeks ago (Passed all the lab time in the library reading magazines :D). Slept in the Mathematics lecture and wrote programs in C&DS class for the 1st time. Was back in the bus.

Came home, had a cup of tea and left for shopping, ordered for a new washing machine (semi auto), bought SOIL (mud, dirt, watever for the garden) for Rs 30/-!. Got my hair cut and bought a notebook for a math assignment.

Came home, ate, browsed slashdot & 9down, started solving my math assignment, got bored and stopped, started writng this post.

Gonna watch 1-2 eps of southpark and sleep. feeling too sleepy atm.

Cartman: Shut up – you fucking jew!!
Mr. Garrison: Eric, did you just say the ‘f word?’
Cartman: Jew??

Busyy!

WoW! This is the busiest I have been since 9-10 months, heavy workload, limited time. Exams, assignments, fruitless attemts to revive monster, driver jobs, new website orders and more.. aaaah!! Driving me crazy, I need a full week off, mostly I’ll sync my holiday week with sankranti hols.

Never get a l33t phone laminated! Looks cool but will get on your nerves after week. Pics from teh cam aren’t clear, and the screen just looks gay with all the spectrum lines visible coz of the plastic cover. I am just waiting for it to tear off.

iPod Shuffle rocks! Its just toooo simple, no frills, small, sleek, sexy, white, long batt life, 512MiB storage 100+ songs, 5 buttons, 1 on off switch and a headphone jack, hps are clear n loud!
/me hugs Apple.

I’m off to read something for my EDC(Elec devices and ckts) exam tomorrow O:-)

Yay! the dreaded year has finally come to an end!

Here are my 10 Best moments of the year! chronologically I guess.

  2. Hacking into the Bio-Tech Department servers for bandwidth.
  3. Defeating Attila the Hun in AOC for the 1st time.
  4. Tryst 2005
  5. Signing up to design the new college website and finishing it.
  6. Dolly’s Birthday

  8. Receiving GF6800GT from mom’s hand
  9. 4th day at college 😀
  10. Cult Day at college (prev post)

This may imply a happy year but believe me I had far worse experiences, which I decided to forget and move on.

Comming to my new years “Resolutions”, They are not “New year’s resolutions” but resolutions I decided upon which happened to co-incide with the new year. “New year’s resolutions” are crap 😛

  1. Be myself, be within my limits, no overclocking or underclocking.
  2. No more Bluffing (which may take time coz I have to cover all my previous bluffs :D)
  3. Will finish whatever I Start.
  4. Will revive MONSTER!!!!! I WILL!!
  5. Acads always top priority. (have been following this since 3 months 😐 not a bluff!)

Thats it! I cant do more than that!

and

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Cartman: Hippies.They’re everywhere. They wanna save the earth, but all they do is smoke pot and smell bad.

Cartman: I hate hippies! I mean, the way they always talk about “protectin’ the earth” and then drive around in cars that get poor gas mileage and wear those stupid bracelets – I hate ’em! I wanna kick ’em in the nuts!

Cartman (singing): I want to get down on my knees and start pleasing Jesus. I want to feel his salvation all over my face.
