I spent like all of today putting the new 6600 GT in atlas, my linux box. Lots of bad things happened, then I fixed them all. And it took forever beacuse I have to unplug and move atlas every time I need to work on it. ANYWAY, I think this is working. I haven't started programming anything yet, but it hasn't crashed my 3D programs the couple of times I've run them.

I did try the DOOM 3 demo, which crashed my system pretty good (responded to ping, but couldn't get in).

I also should have been putting in a new 300GB drive to replace /home, but the one I got from newegg was DOA. It makes a lovely *click* sound.

Also got a zalman flower for parabellum, my windows machine, but that will have to wait for tomorrow. I am wiped out.

I have decided to get to host with their cheap virtual hosting deal. It's still way more expensive than I was paying, but the fact is that right now I don't even expect mail to to go through. This is also an important step towards getting a non-livejournal kvance website back on the internet.

Speaking of games:

Q.) Can I get in any other ways than being a member of the gaming industry?
A.) Yes you can, there are two ways:

-Be a member of the press/media. This is all outlined in the media section of

-Be a Student in college. To do this, you much choose a package to spend your hard earned monies on (free package is the exception, look to next question for answer). To apply as a student, you need to send along with your money, a copy of your student ID, a copy of your official course list for the current schooling year, and a letter for the faculty dean/chair of your program saying you're a student of the course, and that you should go since it benefits and extends your career/learning/future.

:O This was unknown to me!
