Word of the day:

Revenant: /rv-nnt/

n.

  • One that returns after a lengthy absence.
  • One who returns after death.

  • Soy un perdedor. Once again, tech news flutters through the air. The new i815E chipset from Chipzilla is a definite improvement over the i810 and i820 chipsets, or so says a review from Sharky Extreme. The 820 is obviously plagued by the high cost of RDRAM. After significant price cuts, 128meg of RDRAM still costs $350! The 810 was plagued by the onboard video, which was not upgradeable. The 815 uses SDRAM yet also has an AGP slot for video upgradability. The 815 also has a great affinity for onboard hardware, such as a network adapter, modem, or sound card. Brand new systems can be purchased for cheap when built with this chipset.

    I have just found one of the best sources of information for Linux: Trinity OS.

    If you don’t know Linux, there are many great places on the web to get info. Up to this point, all of the information I have come across has been helpful. Today, I read this article about proxy servers, yet it is the most worthless article for anyone. Beginners would be confused because the author does not explain how things are done, he simply gives a list of commands and what this setup won’t do. More advanced users would be better off reading the how-to the author had linked. Make Linux easier for people to learn! We must increase the strength of our attack!

    Thanks to support from Val, a Word of the Day will become more and more common here. Today I have stolen the word from Dictionary.com:

    ruminate \ROO-muh-nayt\, intransitive verb:

    1. To chew the cud; to chew again what has been slightly chewed and swallowed.

    2. To think again and again; to muse; to meditate; to ponder; to reflect.

    I definitely like the second definition better.
