Superfluous Matter

So we built my brother's computer, here are the specs:

  • P4 2.8GHz with Hyperthreading
  • 1GB PC-3200 DDR400 memory
  • Intel 865 chipset on Asus P4P800 SE motherboard
  • ATi Radeon 9550 256MB video card
  • 120GB Seagate SATA harddrive
  • Antec Sonata Case

It makes me jealous becasue it runs so nicely. Unreal Tournament 2004 is perfect at 1024x768 with all of the detail settings at maximum. The case and motherboard worked really well and everything was easy to assemble. It looks really good too, but my brother managed to put the main case sticker on upside down (picture coming soon). Oh well, still pretty cool. Must resist urge to upgrade computer...

Jen's birthday was pretty fun as well. A lot of people showed up and we had dinner at a nice restaurant (the Hot House) down on Front Street. Michael came up for both the meal and some of the computer fun. We took him to lunch at Zelda's at Church and Wellesley which is a really great restaurant. Working in Toronto has been amazing, but going back to Waterloo where there are more people will be really cool too.

Haven't updated in a while, not for any reason though.

I wrote my exam for my distance course on Saturday, it was pretty easy and I'm glad I'm done. I don't think taking a distance course in the summer while living in Toronto was a good idea. Now I just have to write a work report. Ug.

Not much else has happened lately, but this weekend should be interesting. My brother is coming to Toronto and we are going to build a computer for him. It is also Jen's birthday and a bunch of people are going out for it. Should be fun. Hopefully Michael will come join us.

That's it.
