Big graphics card is big

Chipped off heatsink to fit 9600GT

About a day ago I finally received my new graphics card. GeForce 9600GT would be more powerful than my old and faithfull 7800GT, but more importantly, 9600GT wouldn’t have any moving parts – it would be completely silent. When I got home, I opened the box and was surprised how big the thing was. I soon shut down my computer and opened the case. I removed the old GFX-card only to find out my the graphics card wouldn’t fit in, thanks to larger-than-average chipset heatsink. Now what?

When I woke up last morning, I had already decided that I won’t sleep until I’m done with my master’s thesis. I didn’t have very much to do, but I knew it would take some effort nonetheless. I fed the cat and headed to University, my room, D226.

Physics sandbox

5 Mar 2008 22:30:34 misc

Want to play with a physics sandbox? Give Phun a try.

I’ve always been fascinated by physics modeling, especially if it’s possible to play with it. I spent hours playing with Unigine physics modeling demo when v0.33 was released. (Too bad the physics demo is not included in v0.4 demo.)

Yesterday somebody pasted yet another (some of the links not safe for work, and some are not safe for anything) link on IRC that would change my life forever. Well, maybe not forever, but for a few days to come.

Phun is “A fun 2D physics sandbox by Emil Ernerfeldt. There are currently GNU/Linux (64-bit and 32-bit) and Windows version available, and Mac OS version is suggested. Get your copy and start wasting your precious time!

Online shopping can be a breeze. However, then things go awry, things may be a bit difficult to make right. Fortunately even Chinese online stores can indeed make things right. They’re just not making it too easy.
