Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’m too freakin’ busy with school and work right now Hopefully, life will slow down soon.
Speaking of school, it’s going great: I just finished my first class and received a B (if you know anything about my high school days, that’s like 37 A’s)!! So far, classes have just been on theory, but I’m liking them a lot! Other then that, I feel like I’m drowning in my work load – between it being the “busy season” at work, homework from school and the life with the girls, I feel like I have zero free time (and sanity is quickly fleeting).
As some of you know, I have been using Linux lately – I started with Ubuntu and now I’m trying LinuxMint, it’s pretty cool but it might be “too Windows”…. We’ll see, Gutsy Gibbon just came out and I really want to try it so I might be reformatting that partition soon. Mean while, I haven’t booted Vista in over 3 months and I have to keep XP for work (I know I could run XP virtually, but who’s got time for that? ). For those keeping count: I’m multi-booting 3 OS’s on my machine. Saman=Geek.
Mineral Oil Submerged Computer Construction Video
Anyway, lately I have been talking about building a Mineral Oil Submerged Computer. This isn’t me in this video, but the guys from Puget Custom Computers. They’re the inspiration behind all of this. I thought it would be a great pet project and now I’m thinking about building a Media Center PC since I stumbled onto LinuxMCE. After watching the great 25 minute demo video (below), I’m blown away!!
LinuxMCE 0704 Demo Video
Now I haven’t mentioned any of this to my wife yet but I plan on starting this project around Christmas (and maybe, one day, I’ll get around to building my carputer). Just imagine: You walk into our house and see this great aquarium (rocks, scuba diver and all) and realize there is PC hardware where the should be fish! Not to mention that that computer can be controlled from my iPhone (which I don’t have yet, but I’m sure that one of you will be buying me before my upcoming birthday)!! So, if anyone has some spare computer parts that they’d like to donate, contact me and I’ll be more then happy to spread some Page Rank 5 love your way!
So that’s all for now, I need to get back to my research paper but rest assured that I’m just as geeky as always (and maybe more so). I realize that this was more of me rambling then an actual post and I apologize if I jumped around a bit (welcome to life in my head)….
