Status update, Thu Sep 2 2010

So I’m back from Leiria, had a blast over there and I wish I could go there more often. Maybe even live there. Good times with good friends.

Sometimes I start thinking I’d really like to move away from Lisbon and Leiria looks like a perfect target. I’d be really tempted to move there if I had a somewhat ok(ish) job offer.

Moved to Ubuntu 10.04 on the Desktop, figured since I’ve been doing all my gaming on the Xbox I don’t really need Windows though I really enjoyed Win7. The only thing bugging me is that nvclock still doesn’t support my 250GTS nvidia card and I can’t slow down the card’s fan like in Win7 with some program I can’t remember the name of. Temperatures still remain acceptable while not gaming and at least my computer doesn’t sound like it’s about to take off. Network and file sharing worked right out of the box with the mac since it was already set up for a SMB network, that was a nice surprise following the struggle to get the mac working together with Win7.

8:08PM and the sun is about to set and I really wish I could be back at Old Beach, this perfect little coffee house(?) slash bar right next to the beach open 24h a day in S. Pedro de Moel drinking a ‘Piña somethingicantremember’ milkshake and having a chat.

Been playing a lot of Forza Motorsport 3, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Alan Wake on the Xbox though I haven’t touched it the past few days since the nerd in me keeps wanting to fiddle around with Ubuntu and make it just the way I like it.

Went a couple of times to this bar where I live with a couple of friends. Never been there in my life before though it’s right in front of this gym I used to go to. My friends don’t even live here and they’re the ones that took me there, funny.

Also, I need a better wifi router. This one keeps dropping wifi. Gotta talk with a friend of mine who can possibly make me a good deal on a better router.

That’s it for now. Cheers.

PS: My current webhost is HORRIBLY SLOW.
