Things I like. Including the occasional nightmare fuel.


A week later I realize the only real reasons I stick to Windows is because I play games, it's something I know how to chainsaw the fat out of, and the classic windows look.
Somehow I get the feeling the 4GB limit on the persistent data file is limited to available RAM, still it would be nice to use the other 26.2GB on this drive...
Been running the laptop without an HD using a flash drive with Lubuntu and persistent program storage. I've got 4GB to work with for installing things. And a secondary Flash Drive formatted in Ext4 for Steam. Works ok, just remember, unlike an HD, a flash drive doesn't handle full-duplex data transfer...
Yet again, a Hard drive fails, apparently a 2-inch drop is able to do more damage than a fist bash fueled by piping hot coffee in one's lap...

Operating System: I seem to be leaning closer to Linux...
Gamer, Console, PC, Emulated (Owned Games Only)
Good with HTML4, Wrote a battle engine in VB in MS Excel 2003...
Trying to refresh C++ knowledge, java too.

Started in Sprite Comics, now drawing with mouse...
I can't think of much else to put here...
Follow that Follow!
  • Mood: Tired
I openly admit that waffle are delicious.

I've been dealing with more school crap, at least I know I've got some good grades already. Been trying to draw some stuff but the inspiration for things is a little dirty at the moment, shouldn't of let my mind roll around the gutter... That aside I've been doing some Borderlands, and have actually been enjoying the on-the-go grinding in FF XIII, yes, I play it. As part of the new laptop, and the ability to play some freakin' semi-modern games again, I've also been running through Tomb Raider, which I can actually beat now! Funny story, that. Getting near the end on my previous laptop (before the hot-coffee-in-lap fueled fist bash claimed it's first HD.) The framerate at Below Minimum Graphics Quality was so low I couldn't get a timed button press to register, so I couldn't finish off a big enemy standing between Lara and the (assumed upcoming) Final Battle. Now I have a system that can handle the game! And dammit, I'm gonna win this time!

That aside, too. Been having fun with a Solid State Drive, runs cooler, doesn't auto-destruct if the laptop moves faster than two inches an hour. Loading times: Pretty Much Nada. (Still takes a moment for 5GB of Soundfont to squeeze into the System RAM, On Demand.)
Funny thing is now Win7 boots as fast as one of my old clean XP installs. I just needed a SSD, a quadcore CPU, 8GB of RAM... four times the speeds from the old XP laptop that set the record.

Also, more butcherable services!

WWAN Autoconfig: Only needs to be enabled if your PC/Laptop has a 3G/4G adapter. WiFi doesn't count.
Remote Registry: Only needs to be enabled if your system has to download it's setting (Ex: Like the lab computers on a college campus.)
Any of the Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN services: They try to optimize .NET each reboot, even though it only needs to happen -ONCE-.

And on the Do Not Disable List (Keep Automatic):
User Profile Service (Ever see windows choose not to render a single program icon? And take five minutes to load the wrong user setting?)
Software Protection (See below)
SPP Notification Service (Because if you disable these your Win7 suddenly thinks it's not genuine. Even if Automatic, once it's done checking its Genuinity (izzat a word?) it closes itself.)

Again, these are suggestions (Aside from the Do Not Disable List...) that can help boost system performance (or in the case of easily overheating systems: grant more time before that overheat.)

my paint is awkward... >.< It does not respond to the pen like other programs do.... and the brushes are weird.... Not sure if I will use it again... The tools are weird as well as the controls. It also doesn't respond to the tablet like I had stated... I will probably save it for other projects. For cleaner works it might not be a good idea. It isn't as responsive as I would like it to be...

I'd almost want to see what it's doing for myself, but it is an open source program. Might work on some OS's...OSi?... but performs less than proficiently on others, guess that's the actual price on free software. <,,<;;;

Maybe we can check next time we get the chance, though yeah I do agree with that... that is the price of freeware...

Plugged in my tablet and gave it a try, seemed to lag only when there was a heavy load on the CPU or the CPU was running at 800mhz. There's a chance the lag you're experiencing could be an excess program nabbing excessive resources.  A little research also suggests that in some cases with Win8, the program is at war with the OS for who gets first priority over the touch device, but I think that only applies to touch screens like in the lobo lab. Either way I will be in the Lair tomorrow, hopefully before noon.
