Flash at its Best

Posted by Mark

I was a bit hesitant to check the Leo Burnett flash site out after seeing it on Waxy since I really really hate flash sites. I clicked on the link though and I have to say this is the best flash site ever. [Link]

Hot Hot Hot

Posted by Mark

ultra fan

Two days ago I posted about my PowerMac finally being upgraded, well I have run into a minor problem that requires more upgrading. Basically you can currently bake a cake inside my Mac because of the heat. I had one hard drive reporting a tempreture of 65 degrees celcius which is around 20 degrees hotter then usual. I don’t even know how hot my CPU is running but I am also guessing pretty fucking hot since you would burn your finger if you touched the CPU’s heatsink.

I am now trying to find ways to cool the interior of my case. Since its a Mac its not easy since the interior of the case isn’t standard by any means. I have found PCI slot fans but I can’t find one that will blow air in, most blow air out of the case which at the moment is not a priority. It is always better to over pressure the interior of the case then to underpressure. I also need to find a way to cool the hard drives, a way that doesn’t require screws since there is no place to screw anything in. Until this heat issue is solved my Mac won’t be on 24 hours a day, I will have to turn it on when I need to use it and off when I am done.

No Fear

Posted by Mark

I went to the dentist last night and although I used to really hate dentists before, yesterday I started to like them a lot better. I was always worried that if the dentist was going to do something major to my teeth that I would be in a lot of pain during the procedure and then after while recovering. Yesterday I realized that this wasn’t true. After the dentist injected me with anestesia, he performed a minor wedge surgery which I didn’t feel at all. Last time I took anestesia for a dental procedure I was young and had to have some teeth pulled so I could get braces. It wasn’t a nice incident and I believe thats why I dislike dentists so much. Yesterday though the dentist operated on me and I wasn’t the least bit comfortable. It was incredible, and even after the procedure was done and I went home, the pain I was expecting to appear never did, not even today morning long after the anestesia has worn off. Now I have a second oppointment with the dentist tomorrow and I am not nervous about it at all.

One word of advise, if you have a problem with your teeth, don’t wait a long time to have it fixed, it won’t heal by itself and it will just get worse.

Before
Apple PowerMac G4 733mhz
896MB SDRAM
280GB Hard Drive
Sony 8X CD Writer (Doesn’t read DVDs)

After
Apple PowerMac G4 Dual 1.6Ghz
1.25GB SDRAM
530GB Hard Drive
Pioneer 40X CD Writer / 16X DVD Writer

I just installed Tiger fresh on the new hard drive and everything is running super fast.

FireFox 1.5 Beta 1

Posted by Mark

firefox logoI just downloaded FireFox 1.5 (Beta 1) and first thing I noticed is that none of my extentions are compatible with it. Other then that FireFox still visually looks the same. I was expecting the icons maybe to be updated or something. The Prefrences control panel has changed, it now works like most other Mac apps. The browser seems a bit faster in loading up websites and actually FireFox 1.5 as a whole seems lighter and quicker. Sadly I will have to install the older version of FireFox again because I need my extensions. Here is the link to the FireFox 1.5 Beta 1 Start Page. [Link]
