Song of a Previous Moment

This song I did like when I first heard it. Dates back to the late 90s – 1998 I think. The entire album is pretty good.

DJ Rap is only 5 years younger than me. So it isn't creepy that I have a crush on her and that I want to marry her.

Well, maybe a little creepy.

Song of the Moment

I've heard this song multiple times before. I guess it is my middle-aged brain, but it sometimes takes multiple hits before a song sinks into my brain. Finally happened for this song on my drive into work Friday.

New Computer Case

I built a “frankenputer” using a test bed “case”. This sounds cool, but this is totally impractical when using it in the living room. I recommend this case if you are actually testing and benching hardware, or storing the computer in a closet. Beyond that, not much to recommend.

I am going to go to a couple of LAN parties in March, so needed a real case. I bought the NZXT Vulcan micro-ATX game “enthusiast” case. Still not living room appropriate, but I don’t care. When it isn’t traveling to LAN Parties, it will be pulling home theatre PC duty. As I type this, it is streaming the Kevin Pollak Chat Show episode with Nathan Fillion on my 37″ LCD display. I am pleased with the result.

No fun picture or video from me on this job – sorry. I will leave that up to Rodney Reynolds. He does a nice little review of this case. Much better than anything I could do. He has been doing these videos for some time now. I seem to recall him doing a review of my Shuttle SS51 that I bought nearly 10 years ago. He does have annoying ticks… overly annunciating words and seems to be fighting an accent that I can’t put my finger on. But his reviews are detailed and his audio/video quality is bordering on professional. So watch the video and soak in all the geekiness that is Rodney Reynolds.

New gym records this afternoon.

First, new record for my 30 laps of indoor running. Did 2.73 miles in 19:09. That works out to a 7:04 per mile pace. This run came out of the blue. My runs over the past month or so have been over 20 minutes.

Then I shot 14 free throws in a row… new middle-aged record.

Don't worry, I shall use my new super powers for good not evil.

Or not.
