lol, well it was supposed to be a suprise, but I found a reciept for a extra 360 controller! So it was either let me have it early, or put up with weeks of hassle lol!

\o/ FINALLEH!

The New Years bonus of my employer went to this Samsung 32" tele. Not bigger, because it just wouldn't fit (and I ran out of money)...really really nice, especially when you connect the laptop to it. I can't wait watching some TG on it.

Now, does anybody have a Samsung LCD tv? Because I can't seem to "turn off" the TV.
In the manual, there are two chapters for "turning on and off" and "turning in standby". But i don't see any difference: I think the TV is ALWAYS in standby...the red light always shines...anybody? Because the manual also says you can't leave your tv on standby too long.

Yay, I got the native iPhone apps working on my iPod! Yay for Weather, Maps, Mail, Notes, and Stocks (okay, not so much about Stocks, even though it is damn pretty)!

Well, my Shuttle case got delayed again ( Jan. 17) So i said fuck it and bought another case ect.

Mobo: ASUS P5K AiLifestyle Serie P35 Express
PSU: Corsair HX520W,
Case: Antec Nine Hundred (The 200mm top fan sold me on it :D ) ,
CPU Cooling: Scythe Ninja PLUS SCNJ-1100P Rev. B

Also bought another Antec TriCool fan for the case, so it's at 5 (4 120mm 1 200mm)

Getting here tomorrow or the day after, and i saved 1000kr (~$200) Over the Shuttle case which was a G35 Express Mobo.. Could have gotten a X38 Mobo but the price difference is crazy.

Sent an order for this pair:



I've had HD 570 for a long time now (over 8 years), and they've always been great. But after trying 600/650's it just isn't the same. Upgrade was inevitable ;)

UT3 is much better on the PC. Keyboard/mouse FTW.
UT3 on PS3 supports M/K AND mods.

Great phones, HD6xx really shine with cable upgrade, hope you're not amp-less.

I use headphone socket from Denon receiver, which was ok so far (well, better than pc soundcard anyway). But I've been looking at some DIY designs lately, will see if I'll have enough motivation :)

Wow. Nice package. I'm hopefully getting another GB of RAM (total 2) at Xmas, we've already got a 250GB external drive, but I really want that monitor. I've got a 32" HDTV as a second monitor, but a 19" CRT as my main one. Yup. I need money.
