Had to spend the last couple of days focusing on my dissertation demonstration which was this afternoon. Worked out pretty well I thought - think they got the general idea that my project did something clever, which will hopefully translate it into a good mark. I could really do with a good mark - 55-65 is all I require but a high 60's or low 70's means I can get a first-class for my degree. Which would be nice.
With that out of the way, I intend to finish up the vertex cache demo. Not a lot to be done on it, but a few little tweaks here and there and some updated source code. Probably wont get to look at that till tomorrow at this rate.
My entertainment this evening is a full backup of my system. One of those chores that has to be done every now and then I suppose... but still, clocking up at 10 DVD's its gonna take a few hours and is hardly exciting [headshake]
Although, as a random bit of trivia...
In digging around my "downloads" partition I realised why making it particularly big was probably a bad idea - I've got gigabytes of general crap clogging it up. I blame my fast internet connection.
The Windows Vista beta program and MSDN subscription are primarily to blame - seems I've got eight ISO's of various builds totalling over 23gb [oh][oh][oh]
Once I've got my system backed up I'm going to try yet another install. 5308 worked once, but not on a reinstall... 5342 and 5365 were both DOA. Now we're upto 5381... I really want to get back on with some D3D10 work [sad]. It's been over a 100 builds since it last installed and worked stabily on my config.
Seems that my SATA/RAID array is confusing Vista, so if 5381 is DOA as well I might try disconnecting it from my motherboard during install. I'm quite worried that this will screw up the partitions and RAID mirroring, hence the full backup first.
