A blurry pic of the “rig.”
I’m.. not really concerned about how it looks. I just want it to work.
My computer is older than I thought.
I had to buy a new psu since my thermaltake 680 didn’t have an 8x pcie connector, new dvdr since my old one is IDE, had to buy a heatsink and fan since APPARENTLY the 3930k does not come with one, AND I fucked up and bought a SAS drive instead of a SATA drive, so I had to buy one.
so this computer wound up costing over $2k anyway.
That’s a lot of money for a basic PC.. fucking ridiculous. This damn thing better be awesome.
New parts arrive Tuesday. I’ve gutted the case. I’m wondering though if the new mobo has an IDE channel, if it doesn’t I need to pick up a spare dvdrw or whatever.
The psu I’m gonna keep. It’s nearly 700w, I hope that’s sufficient. I’m re-using the case (I’ve had this case for almost a decade) the fans, psu and the dvdrwwhatever drive if I can. EDIT: nope, just checked, new mobo doesn’t have IDE. So I’ll make a trip to microcenter tomorrow or Monday and pick one up.
I HAD an AMD Phenom X4, 8gb ram, gigabyte something or other mobo, geforce gtx 460, 1 500 (the older drive.. the one that failed) and 2 750s.
New system is an I7 3930k, asus x779 sabertooth? and a geforce gtx 780 (evga, apparently.) and 2x8gb gskill ram. For all you folks who care about this kinda stuff.
For me, I work in the industry, I don’t really keep up with the nerd talk, I replace servers, bulid infrastructures, SANs, clusters, vmware etc. I don’t really deal with/care about this type of thing very often,so the particulars of this cpu or this brand of vidya, I really can’t speak to, but newegg reviewers seemed to like everything I bought, and passmark spoke highly of the cpu and the gpu, so.. we should be ok.
I also bought a “nippon” hdmi cable. My old vidya had some kinda mini hdmi, tihs new one appears to have normal hdmi, so I picked that up. 15’ for like $7. I only needed 6 but it was only adollar more, so I ssaid why not. I may need it later.
I just yelled at the kids next door (ya know the bald kid with the glasses and the asian girl with the oversized t-shirt.. .. if you don’t get the reference I don’t blame you..) for throwing a lacrosse ball at the back of my house. I’ve yelled at them before for hitting my house withthat ball. I may be moving in the fall.
I7, asus mobo, gtx 780, 16gb ram, 1tb hdd
Should be good enough for minecraft.. I hope.
PC is dead. Gonna be a while before I can fix it.
Everything I own is fucking broken. Hell I’m fucking broken. Why do I even bother?
I’m not 100% sure what was wrong with the computer. HDD failed seatools tests, but I had a lot of odd behavior I usually dont find with a HDD failure. No bad sectors, no corrupt data. I had a lot of video issues. Programs locking up, choppy/laggy mouse movement, it didn’t make sense. Seems more like a mobo problem to me, though I wouldn’t trust the HDD either since it failed a test, BUT, a failing sata channel could probably report a seatools failure too.
At any rate, I need to replace the whole system. It’s 7 years old, and it’s just worn out. I was not gentle with it. Maybe soon I’ll have a pc that can run minecraft.. imagine that.
my harddrive is trying to die. I’m backing up data now but I dunno how I’m gonna fix this. In honor of that, this is an old build that I never finished. I uh.. actually forget the name, but it was supposed to be greek/roman.
old jamesopolis screenshot I found. Sheep at the mall.. typical.. even in the rain they have to shop.
I got a call from my realtor today that my house has had a lot of showings, 5 today alone. However, he has had calls from several agents who have said that my neighbor has been yelling racial slurs at non-whites that look at the house, is often on the property, and has threatened other agents.
At least 1 agent said that the house is on her blacklist and she will never show it at any price ever again.
How is this legal?
Des you missed the fucking point completely. You think my concern is that the fucking agent refuses to show the house and NOT the random asshole coming onto my property and trespassing and verbally assaulting my potential tenants or home buyers? Seriously??
Normal day on Bville server:
"So what do you think of that event going on?"
"Yea it sucks"
*Place one block*
But sure ill think of it.
A Day In The Life:
Idle for 45 minutes or criticize things you didn’t build
Make a car noise and log out.
I can add to this.
>fly around bitching about life
>ask who built something
>say I don’t like it, but it’s not mine so it’s not my problem
>change something I did 2 months ago
>forget minecraft was open and leave it open all night and half the next day
Coterie connected texture black glass in use in broville.
Other colors on the way. It’s not hard but to be true to the pack it takes a little bit of time! (it’s tedious.)
Because shoes can’t load imgur. (or curse)
coterie doesn’t have CTM colored glass yet. So I’m making it for them.
One of the first puzzle rooms in the volcano dungeon. The red glass platforms will be on a clock with summon, so they’ll appear and disappear.
This dungeon requires a fire protection item to even enter it (well that, and a key given by a quest giver) so you CAN walk through lava.. so long as you have that item. If you fall to the bottom you’ll have to find a way back up. And you’ll be swimming in lava the whole time. You’d better hope that fire protection item doesn’t break! (I’m still working on the details of that. Perhaps just an unbreaking enchant. Full disclosure, I’ll most likely be using gold armor since its the worst of the non-leather armors. A full set will still make you pretty tough though since they are required quest items for each dungeon.)
If things go the way I want them there’ll be mobs here n there. Fire related mobs that is. And a fire related boss. Your main objective in this dungeon like.. well every dungeon ever is of course to get to said boss. There are 5 doors in this room, although only 2 of them really go anywhere major.
