Day 1179 (08/12/13 - Day 1179)
"You do not get to play god and wash your hands off your creation" where did this come from?
It’s from Battlestar Galactica
Hi sid what are the specs of your little computer the one with linux and where can I get a small one like that?
The little computers specs are shit!
AMD Sempron 1500
ATI Radeon 5600
The case is a Shuttle XPC SK21G
The entire rig cost me about £300 at the time. Now it’s probably worth two peanuts and a bottle of pink lemonade.
The Shuttle XPC range seems to have disappeared, before they used to have a multitude of cases, all little boxes like this one.
If you want a mini sized PC, here are some recommendations:
Intel do a line of mini PC’s with i5 Haswell chips:
If you want to build it yourself, you can always check out the Mini and Micro ATX cases here:
I’m planning on getting a few cube sized cases in the future, maybe in a year or so to build a render farm for work.
But right now, all I’m looking at is MASSIVE sized computer cases. Like solid blocks of metal for my workstation.
I’m so glad to see the younger generation waking up to this hypocrisy.
The homeowner at 22 one is killing me.
This meme makes me so angry because it’s so on-target.
I am screaming
Oh hey there every single older relative ever.
Oh hey dad I didn’t know were a meme…
My Sunday’s been productive. Kind of. Yesterday was one long as hell day, where we went to this meeting/seminar thing. We learnt quite a bit from it, but we had to leave at 7.30 and we didn’t get back till 13 hours later.
Started watching Bowling For Columbine this morning and I got bored after a while. The company meeting over Google Hangout just flopped entirely and that was over in a matter of minutes.
I made a list of stuff I needed to sort out, like sorting out a commissions page on The Sidstine Chapel and price list and then build the Sidoodle website. It just ended up with me updating the Chapel’s website with lots of cool new stuff but not doing anything on the list.
I still have a video I need to edit before Tuesday and I won’t have time on Monday. There’s also the next page from The Horrible Man to get done too.
I feel lazy though, I just can’t afford to be lazy this evening though. I would love to just procrastinate and start watching The Clone Wars or something but this list of stuff that needs to get done just won’t end and it keeps staring at me longingly.
I also need to tidy this room up. It’s becoming quite distracting.
so if i want to build my own, which components should i put in that will be good for fast video rendering such as in after effects?
- 4.1GHz AMD A10-6800K 4-Core Richland APU
- Gigabyte GA-F2A85XM-D3H Motherboard
- 1TB (1000GB) Sata III Hard Drive
- 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz Gaming RAM
- Coolermaster 500W PSU
Rest of the money should go to a case and any other accessories
Edit: get a graphics card too
How can someone deal with not being the 'famous' one in college and being introverted? Ive always felt like I want to be the center of attention. Not attention seeking but wanting people to notice me and like me. I feel very alone
In high school and college, it’s down to the luck of the draw. The popularity contest comes from either good looks or performance for the school. If you’re on a sports team or help the school in victory in whichever way, that works.
You can also build a reputation by being smarter and doing something online with it. Making money always helps too.
Educational establishments are superficial in nature. People don’t like you for who you are. They like you because of what they think you are. Make them believe what you want them to believe and you’ll do good.
any good laptops for under 400 for good video editing?
Laptops aren’t recommended and if you do get one, you’re better off getting one that costs at least £1000.
If you want to do video editing, you will be able to with the laptops I’ve added to the bottom of this message but don’t expect amazing performance. These laptops have the bare necessities to work.
Do not be fooled into believing you need to have the best specifications. You can edit on lesser priced and specced machines. The only thing that it will affect is performance. My company HAS to purchase high-spec machines because our business counts on delivering content at fast speeds to keep up with demand.
Unless you’re being paid to edit video that HAS to be delivered in a period of hours (and if your skills are even at that level) £400 will get a machine that can edit video.
Here are some I found for you, that if I had your budget, I would purchase:
The one in bold is my highest recommendation. It’s slightly more than your budget, but if your budget is that low, I would highly recommend that one at that price.
The other solution is that you buy a desktop for £400 which you can constantly upgrade over time. However you will need to purchase monitors, peripherals etc.
