    Finally got around to watching Doctor Strange. (Daily Blog #31)

    Random Fact: It is late, my mind is on low-power mode, I’ve been using my PC as a home theater since 10 pm, and having a Sound Blaster installed is probably the best thing since PC bleeper speakers.

    Welp. The AMD k6 arrived today.

    It’s not the model I ordered. I ordered the k6-233ANR, but instead got the k6-2-450AHX. The difference? The former is compatible with 3.3 volt core and I/O, while the latter I know will die immediately upon powering on from overvolting the 2.4 volt I/O.

    Left a “meh” 3-star rating, and now I’m watching Amazon again for some k6-233ANRs for under $10.

    Random Fact: The AMD k6-x series of CPUs was so successful that it singlehandedly generated enough revenue for AMD to develop the flagship Athlon line, which was internally codenamed “k7”, as a followup to the series that successfully competed against not just the Intel Pentium, but the Pentium, the Pentium Pro, the Pentium 2, and Pentium 3. The Athlon, compared to the k6-x, was able to

    No random facts today. It’s a bit late where I am right now.

    Even with a RAM boost, my oldest PC is still pretty slow. I mean, sure, it’s definitely several times faster compared to when it only had 64mb of RAM, but now the CPU is bottlenecking the entire freakin’ thing.

    How 'bout an alternate ending to Lab Horse?

    I’d might as well bring a darker side to the series, so why not? :trollestia::trollestia::trollestia:

No random facts today. :P


Thoughts & Opinions~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was hoping that I’d be able to hang out with my friends for the first time all summer break, but it turns out that practically all of them are out-of-state doing things.

I’m incredibly bored, but hopefully my little order of computer parts should keep me busy once it arrives this coming week.

Ever get that creeping feeling of loneliness coupled with boredom during school breaks?

I’m sort of a social antisocial IRL. It gets a bit of coaxing to get me going, but once you do, I pretty much never stop.

My primary concern right now aside from getting my summer homework done is whether or not the AMD k6-233ANR is gonna draw too much power compared to the Pentium 166. I read a forum topic mentioning some guy who killed their mobo from frying the VRM after upgrading to a k6.

Shattered Rainbow is painfully hard to write, just because it’s probably got one of the most strict story plans/outlines I’ve ever used.
