What a weekend. Just to let anyone who actually cares know. I am so close to being done with the 300 pound Gorilla at work. We worked till 1 AM friday and a couple hours sat, and I will do some stuff today, but it is about 95% done and life is gonna be so much better work wise after this friday.
So I am playing HL2 Episode 2 and well being a newer game the graphics are intense. I had set every setting to the lowest setting and still had severe glitches where the game froze up and I had to wait a few seconds for it to come back. I am ordering a new processor wed, but it seemed to be getting worse. My graphics card is decent, but a bit old.
Well Sat it just got horrible. And in linux when I was making a DVD backup I was having the glitches as well. It had been a while since I had blown out the dust and figured it might be time. My CPU heatsink was a dust ball. Blew the whole thing out and well now I can go to medium settings in HL2 E2 and it rocks. Silly me.
