    Eff talking - let's just drink. I'm out of beer and I'm not in the mood for wine, so I guess it's the rye for tonight.

    For clarity, you have used **** twice now. Does it rhyme with **** or ****? That would help understand magnitude, in a vague non-commital way.

    In other news, I severed all links to Windows last weekend, and updated my Linux Mint 10 to 16 XFCE. Today a good friend of mine bought me Skyrim on Steam. Nuts.

    I've donated some hardware to my 14yo nephew and we're building him a Steam box. Should be fun - he's never built before, but he's enthusiastic. Oh, unfortunately he has an almost non-existent budget. This means that I may be forced to buy an AMD 290 for myself so that I can gift him my 5850.

The group is very excited to be in a new village today, that has not been previously visited, because they want to diagnose an illness that has KILLED 30% OF THE TRIBE IN A YEAR. Call me crazy, but I don't get positively excited by that. I get zombie apocalypse excited by that.

    Thoughts?
    The best lecture I ever heard was given by one of the first researchers of the Ebola virus. The virus literally killed everyone in the village. The team sent in to figure it out thought they were dealing with "a virus with the contagiousness of chickenpox and the case-fatality rate of rabies".

    Turns out that even though Ebola is pretty bad ass, some infected serum had gotten into the reusable glass syringes in use, and they sisters had inadvertently inoculated the entire village with Ebola.

    The lecture sounded like something Steven King would have written.

    Anyway, I'm sure your wife is where she should be right now.

    It takes me 45 mins after a storm like last night just to shovel out the walks here. I rode the bike AFTER that fatso.

    The chili came out pretty well. Too spicy for the wife, but the FiL is getting acclimated to a bit of heat and went for seconds. It's hard to make a mild chili that has any flavor.

    To complete the manliness of the scene, we ate while watching football on TV with a cat on my lap. Wait, scratch that last part.

    As a pleasant surprise during that process, I found out that 3 of the 5 existing processors in AM2+ motherboards are actually AM3 chips, so could be reused. What I recalled as Athlons were actually one Phenom and two Athlon IIs, all black editions.

    The snow was mostly unmelted on el sector de MUP, but I rode on it anyway. On some roads they dumped about as much salt/brine on the surface as there was snow. By afternoon, all that was left was the layer of salt. What a mess.

    I didn't see any other cyclists out there. Big surprise.

    ...do you think you absorbed enough salt through your skin to give yourself transient hypertension ?

    Cool. Yeah, those little chips are great for efficiency and noise, too. My wife's computer, which also doubles as a movie/music server, now has a pretty low TDP triple core... wanna say that it's an A4-3500 or some such. Anyway, it's in a pretty small case and two previous mobo/cpu iterations used to spin up and whine very audibly when watching blu rays and whatnot (needed a dedicated GPU). Not this one - never hear a thing out of it except for the HDD scanning (need to get an SSD for her).

    Yeah, the upgrade path was one of the things that I loved about AMD. The stuff that I gave the kid was a DFI mobo (they ROCKED in the day) that had seen three generations of of CPUs, the last of which, a 940 Phenom II, went along with it.
