Well, been a while since my last update :/. I've been overworked doing uni and a webdev job.

I hate webdev. I've been writing a CMS system, and had to integrate it into several website (some havn't gone live yet):

http://www.logicalit.com.au/ (this is currently being redesigned)
http://www.winetrustestates.com.au/ (I didn't do the presentation layer for this site, but it uses the CMS)

Some incomplete sites (they are all 'done' technically, just no real content yet):

http://www.squared.net.au/index.php (the 'company' that I'm working for, customers can login here to get to their control panel)
http://logicalit.squared.net.au/ (the replacement for the logicalit site linked above)

I also did some work on my brother's art website: http://www.artofsimoncowell.com/

(note: I don't do the designs, I'm just the code monkey ^_^).

With all this webdev I've done, you'd think I'd have gotten around to make my own website, but NOOoo I just havn't had time ;(. Its on the drawing board tho. With me on my last year at uni, I'm going to have to start pimping my l33t skillz for when I finish.

Anyway, you get the point. I've been a busy boy. Just not busy in a way that I prefer to be. Of course, I did get paid for this work :) - see below.

So, with my semester over (yay no more exams), I'm going to quit webdev and get back into gamdev stuff again! Yay! I don't think I'll enter 4e5 this year, however, I probably won't have the time. Anyway, the elements this year don't interest me that much >_>.

In other news, I decided to splurge a bit with the money I earned from webdev and got myself a brand spanking new GeForce 7900 GTX (512mb vram baby!), and a third LCD monitor ^__^ (they're so bloody cheap now). I'm all setup for gamedev now!

I managed to find a geforce 2 MX PCI card, to run the third screen. This is after I got a TNT2 just to find I can't run a TNT2 and the 7900 on the same version of the NVidia unified driver system. What a waste of moneys :(. Next time I'll do my research properlly first -_-.


Excessive? I dunno yet, I've still have to work out what to do with all this extra screen space ^____^.

With that, I'm going to go do the washing up.

They look pretty similar in the dark :P. I've got the HD-497s (hence why I was asking) and they kick ass. Sennheiser seems to make the best headphones.

I'm noticing a distinct lack of your whiteboard desk goodness. The marker on your arms finally get too much? [grin]

Besides that, schweet setup...

That setup brings a tear to my eye.

Shoulda seen the six-monitor rig I set up once with a Mac II and some very expensive videocards and displays. I actually had to get up and move my chair to move windows to the far right monitor.

But yes, luscious.

haha, yes it's gone for several reasons..

1) The stupid thing kept curling up no matter how much blue-tac I put under it.
2) The sharpish edges of the board got annoying when resting my arms on it.
3) I ripped it off the desk in a fit of pure webdev induced RAGE~~`1!. :O
