Hello Sports fans,

I went home early to make sure i can get a chance to properly get to know and set up my new laptop. I’m really blessed to have gotten this for a steal since its really what i wanted for my purposes (and then some). Its a very simple machine. Its a Lenovo 3000 or G400. Lemme run down the specs on yez guyz.

  • Intel Core Duo 1.83
  • Intel GMA 950
  • 2gb ram
  • 120 hdd 5400 RPM
  • XPSP2 (whew what a relief since I dont know DOS lolz)
  • ASUS Bluetooth (free!)
  • Realtek b/g wireless adapter
  • Motorola 56k modem (wow a modem!)
  • Realtek gigabit adapter (wow!)
  • Card reader (wow!)
  • Laptop bag (nice, not a cheap knockoff… I’m kinda impressed)
  • Novo restore (Like PC restore… but easier!)

Pretty simple stuff since my needs a basically WM, Email, Browsing and doodling in MS Word. Currently I’m thinking of putting Vista on it (Enterprise) but I think I’m gonna pass on that since this thing flies on the hardware it has. i guess until i really need to use this I’ll have to pass on Vista.

Things to do:

  1. Update to SP3 (jeez delayed til X days)
  2. Prepare VM
  3. Install MS reviewers
  4. Optimize system

Well thats it for now. Good night and Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Ja mata,

RS

Its been a great week again, work work work and rest rest rest. Time just flies when you are busy. In about a couple of days from now I will again be old (hehehe) and with that age and change of status I should be more aware and concerned of the things and opportunities around me. I guess even on a more personal note, I should be balancing my life better than before. Well, now is the time for that. Its definitely gonna take some time but I should not let up. Well here goes nothing 🙂

Hello Sports fans,

Le Intro:Its been a while hasn’t it. Yes it certainly has. I haven’t been doing anything spectacular in the months that have gone. basically just huffing and puffing along. It has been quite hot these past few moths and its taking its toll on my sleeping patterns. I have to actually leave work later to make sure its less warm. Oh well I’m not one to complain, I’ll just enjoy the sunsets.

Le Sports update: All my teams in the UEFA Champions League have gone through. Man U and, Barca and also Liverpool have shown their class in these latter stages of the tournament. I am seriously in for some fine football come the Semifinals and eventually the Final in Moscow.

Life in general: Well I’ve just knot the biggest tie in my life in the past days. I feel pretty good about it. I’m sure its gonna be filled with highlights, lowlights, slow mo’s and replays but I genuinely feel that it was just a formality. Oh well, maybe it comes with age 🙂

Geekdom: I’ve recently been helping a dear friend resolve an issue with WIndows Server 2003 and unfortunately, the audio driver and video driver doesn’t seem to like th Optiplex 755 that was downgraded from Vista to 03. I got the video driver down but wow it was really hard to nail the audio. I sure hope the KB works

Pick of the Week: Like what Paul T from Supersite for windows says ie7pro is great! Try it It makes ie7 butter!

Well thats about it for me, Thanks for stopping by!

Ja mata
