New Development Machine

I finally got a new machine for personal use and this one should last me awhile.

Intel Q6600 (quad core) @ 2.4Ghz
250GB HD
Antek NSK1380 case (small formfactor, about the size of a large 4 slice toaster)
Asus P5E-VM motherboard
Fedora 8 x86_64 as the OS

Some initial testing shows that I can compile mplayer from a make clean in about 2 mins when I use the -j 4 option to make. On my loaner laptop it was about 10-15 mins.

Hopefully now, I can get back to coding.

Well a new year is a upon us once again. Amazing how many things got accomplished this year and all the things that are still on the table to complete... Someday I'll get the Star Destroyer Lego done...

I can be thankful that I have a caring family and a good job and I am in good health. After that what more can you ask for. I hope everyone has a great 2008 and I know personally I'm looking forward to the upcoming events... now if I can only sell my house... ;)
