For what it's worth part2

I know I haven't been around much..I've become addicted to Aion. Great game after you level up! I have to work this whole weekend..it's a good things too, I really need a break from Aion.

Cheers to All,

Anna

The Finished and the New

Well, I finished RE5 today..hmm pretty good game. Really didn't like the combat system..poor guy can only do one thing at a time..can't even shoot while moving.

Also, today I started my very first mmog..Aion. I've only played about 90 mins. I think I might really like it!

Don't Get Around Much Anymore

So, what's new with me, work work work..having a full time job is great and the money good. But I don't have much extra time on my hands.

New: Raised my E8400 oc from 3.6 Ghz to 4.0 Ghz...very stable and cool. I've been playing Fallout 3..when I can ! I'm trying to keep-up with all the tech news...it's kind of hard because there's so much of it. Really would like to build a new computer..but right now I can't really find a reason.

Cheers

Short note on overclocking

Just an update on overclocking my computer. I got it to 4.0 and stable ...... I don't think that 4.0 is really needed for any of my games right now. So, I set it to 3.6, I will raise it, when I need too.

Now Replaying

I'm waiting on The Witcher Enhanced V. and FarCry 2. So, I decided to go back and replay Deus Ex again. It's been over a year since I lasted played it, and it's one of my All-Time favorite games.

Plus, I start work in a few weeks, that will cut down my game play time....a lot. Well, at least for awhile !!!

Cheers

Life is speeding up !!!

Well, I have a job ! I actually got the type of job I was looking for i.e. a job at the University Medical Center. an on the post-op wing of the hospital. So, finally I will get a good pay-check, for doing what I like doing ! I start in the middle of August, I will be working rotating shifts, which I actually like.

The only down-side is that I was planning on a 7 day yoga retreat in late August..... it's ok I would rather start work. My life is really speeding up.

Cheers

Details on new computer build

My oldest brother, who use to be a super-geek and taught me all about building computers, gave me a Newegg gift card as a graduation gift. He's now married with one baby and is a Lawyer....who would have thought!!! He says he bets this will be the last computer I will ever build. He says I won't have the time to keep up with computer technology....because I will be working full time for a year. Then it will be back to school again. Hmm....maybe he's right, but I doubt it...we'll see !!!

But here's the specs of my new computer, I didn't want to post them until I got my video-card....It came today !

DFI LP LT X48-T2R

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz

Thermaltake ArmorPlus(Armor+) VH6000BWS Black

OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066

PC Power & Cooling 800watt modular PSU

Heatsink: Noctua NH-C12P

Western Digital VelociRaptor WD3000GLFS 300GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache

Plextor DVD Burner

And of course the video-card HD4870

The build went very smooth.....well the heatsink was a really tight fit. I overclocked it to 3.6MHz....I think it will go to at least 3.8MHz withhout a problem.

Cheers

Update

Well, I got my Bachelor Degree in Nursing and I passed the NCLEX exam to become a Registered Nurse. So, no more school for awhile. I may work one year as an RN, then go back to school to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).

Oh! I just finished building a new computer.....details later....got to run

College and Gaming

Short note to confirm that I'm still alive. What's new ? Not much...in school we spent most of our time now working in one the local Medical Centers......hmm it sure beats being in the classroom. Games.....finished Witcher, and now I'm playing RB6 Vegas 2. It seems to be a little better than RB6V 1. Cheers !
