Just in case you were wondering.

Making GIMP Look Better
10 Dec 2012
I have never been a huge fan of GIMP. I always felt it was a cloud of functions barely glued together by an interface with an insane amount of cooks. However recent releases have resulted in a far better, if not ideal, interface. However on Windows in particular it has the old school Windows 2000 look, by default. You don’t have to put up with this though.
Above is an example of how it can do with a few minutes downloading and configuring.
Proposed Fan Setup
2 Dec 2012
After emailing my mate Lukasz and reading Bit Tech’s article on fan setups for the Fractal Design Define R3, I put together these two images to explain my changes in fan setup.
FYI these were knocked up in 10mins whilst trying to learn Fireworks.
Asus HD7950 DirectCU II Top
16 Nov 2012
This card is a mouth full to say and more than one in size.
As you can see it is substantially larger than my less than svelt EVGA GTX 560 Ti. The 560 is a great card. Frankly if I had just bought the 2GB version I would not own the Asus 7950 right now.
Why did I buy it? Skyrim. I have spent frankly insane amount of time in Skyrim and I am on my 2nd play through and loving it as much as day one.

I needed to blow up some plans for my dad tonight. He had an A3 with plans for a model engine car. He wanted it up around 2.33x the size. I used Paint.net to scan it in and titch the two A4 scans together and then after some searching I used PosteRazor to make a PDF with 16 A4 sheets with 3cm overlaps.
Sod it I am no good at Evil
31 Aug 2012
That’s it I give up. I have tried to be evil in Skyrim. I even joined the Dark Brotherhood. The evil guys get amazing weapons and armours, but really I am just a nice helpful guy. I wanted to try the other side in my second play through, but I just don’t enjoy it.
I think I will have to maybe try a different character class instead rather than an alignment.
Memory Card Speeds
30 Jul 2012
Bog Standard Sandisk MicroSD 2GB card I got with my Acer Liquid 2 years a go. Card reader is Kingston MobileLite G3 on a USB2.0 port.
Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo Mark 2 16GB, an improvement, but shows how slow MS was.
Now we are talking, Lexar Professional Class 10 SDHC 8GB Card. A whole jump up.
And now my Kingston 96GB SSD, so yeah SSDs aren’t just big flash drives.
