Holy crap! I emailed my resume to a company and they actually called me back, within a half-hour! I’ve got an interview tomorrow at 10am!

Note to self: Don’t send out resumes when you’re not really awake yet, because you might be expected to do a phone interview within a half hour.

A+ Core Hardware Exam: 695 / 800
A+ Operating Systems Technologies Exam: 776 / 800

I’m officially an unemployed A+ Certified Technician, yay!

At some point I’ll take the NET+ exam, too, but I can’t afford it right now.

On your marks! Get set! Render!

I had the day off work today, so having nothing better to do, I decided to race raz0r (PowerBook G4 1.33Ghz, OS X 10.4.1) and media (Pentium III 933mhz, Ubuntu linux (Hoary)) in rendering with Blender.

raz0r, rendering frame #15 from Magnets: The Movie, required 313MB RAM, and took 2:30 mins to render the frame at 400×300.

media required 380MB RAM, and took 3:40 mins to render the same frame at the same size.

In the words of Stormy Waters, “Smoked that bitch!”. I was expecting the outcome to be along those lines, but I’m not sure why linux requires almost 70MB more RAM to render the same frame.

The output pictures from both were identical, obviously.

Now that I have one of these, I no longer need my d-link 4 port USB 1.1 hub or my SanDisk USB CompactFlash + SmartMedia card reader. If anyone is interested in either of them, let me know.


I updated my stepmania box to include 2 missing DDR mixes: DDR Extreme (arcade) and DDR 4th Mix Plus. Also got some sweet new themes for it.

I’m also considering picking up another Ignition pad, so those of you that like DDR have no excuse for not playing anymore 😛
