Gaming, photo editing, programing, and more gaming. Followed by some web browsing and movie watching.

Well, in the name of movie watching, and competition (this forum is a constant battle between AMD and Intel), and people wanting to know a little bit about 'who is behind the screen name'...

Enjoy:

Got my E6600 at 3.0GHz so that I could... um... surf faster, send e-mails faster and get snappier response when I used the calculator that's included with Win XP. Yeah, that's it...

Video encoding and some gaming in my primary rig. Listening to music, watching movies and recording TV shows on my HTPC.

My HTPC has my good 'ol Athlon XP-M 2600+.

CPU is in the sig.

BOINC, mostly, peer-2-peer use, watching movies, listening to music, web surfing, not much game playing anymore, that about covers it.

Isn't that implied by "web surfing"?
December 22, 2006 8:20:40 PM

I always thought web surfing was a subset of a larger task, porn browsing.
December 22, 2006 8:45:39 PM

Ah. I see I had the order reversed. :oops:

A noobish mistake if there ever was one to make.

Yeah, I guess I'm a noob. *sigh*. :cry:

Ah, it feels good to hear you acknowledge your place in the universe.
December 22, 2006 9:38:45 PM

When did you get so mean anyway, Ninja?
December 22, 2006 9:48:26 PM

Comes with the avatar. I was just joking though.
December 22, 2006 10:28:18 PM

So was I. I guess our humor was so dry even we started to doubt that we were joking! :o 
December 22, 2006 10:30:49 PM

Surfing, watching anime, reading manga, playing games that my GeForce 6100 can handle...

And, no, I don't watch p0rn.

@ Ninja: How many people bitched about your avatar before you changed it back?

I'm having trouble figuring out what you use your PC for. I think your description was a bit ambiguous. Can you clarify that??? :wink:
December 22, 2006 11:23:21 PM

i use mine for gaming, emails, paying bills.

oh yeah and talking to all you squirrelmonkeys here at thg :lol: 

and trying to hack ninjas computer to lock his avatar :lol: 

but i cant seem to download his gpu,s.

1. Running Virtual PC with 4 2K3 servers and 4 clients (currently 2XP and 2Vista) to keep up on my 2K3 admin skills and script testing.

2. VBScripting

3. Games: LOTR Online: SoA Beta, WoW, and whatever suits my fancy.

4. Ripping DVD's to ISO for playback using VLC anywhere in my house. (Also converting to PSP format for watching on my commutes)

5. CD ripping.

6. Some light GIMP work.

7. Surfing.

I do all of that, with the exception of the Virtual PC stuff, pretty much concurrently in different combinations obviously. When I get the VPC stuff going it pretty much kills doing much of anything else outside of that, tho I usually keep Primalscript up.

Some gaming, some medical research, some counseling, and some going on this sight to see what's happening to offer advice, opinions, general bull and a few other assorted things. Even e-mail a girlfriend from time to time.

I really don't need the fastest cpu around, but I do need a good graphics card. Except for eventually building a new machine for Vista, I probably would keep my present machine for at least another year or two.

Oh, now you want to get specific.

Gotta be careful when e-mailing. Never use names, just in case I type in a wrong one. Did that once. Connie did not like being called Julie. Don't know why she was so upset. She never did talk to me again.

Problem is, when an avatar changes, its hard to guess who it is. Then I gotta read the name.

Then again, perhaps a good warning, cause I was hoping to get a picture of me and a girl on my boat in Tahiti for an avatar.
