The Use of Astrology - Observing a Cyclical Relationship System

Posted 1 Week Ago at 02:22 PM by daigonite (STUFF I POST)

Astrology is not useless. It is unscientific and you must certainly not be using it to try to “predict” anything or determine who your next lover is, because it’s just as useful at those things as a dog is at flying an airplane (maybe even less so). But astrology presents a model that is useful that I call “cyclical relationship systems”. The system is cyclical because it can be rotated around like the arms of a clock. It’s relationship because its focused on relationships between other...

Tablet? Netbook? Notebook?

Posted December 13th, 2011 at 07:15 AM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

I think I'm so selling my old laptop now. It's literally falling apart - creaky hinges, faded out keyboard labels, light leakage on screen edges, less than 1.5 hours of battery life, unreliable Wi-Fi, toasty CPU... I'm gonna sell it anytime soon! (And I checked and it seems to be worth less than $100. AAAAARGH!

Now, what's a good choice for me when it comes to portable computing? (Having it within $700 range is a good idea, but I might end up being strapped for cash. Again.)

So in an effort to save the CPU from certain doom...

I opened the PC case again. And then... I removed the entire CPU and graphics card along.

Then I removed the heatsink on the CPU. And put it under strong light.

The one thing I can say is... "Oh my. Oh my." Never before I have seen so much dust caked in - seems like blowing air on it just plain didn't work in the last few times.

So what's a plushie to do? Why, I decided to just physically remove the dust. With a toothpick. Same thing for the...

Let's see here...

  • The computer slows down when having more than 50% CPU load for more than half a minute
  • The computer randomly freezes while at stock settings for everything
  • I check temperatures and discover that the CPU is at 70 degrees C
  • I dust PC
  • Temperatures still high
  • I set fans to maximum speed, and temperatures are still high
  • I downclock the CPU to 60% of its original speed, and it still hovers around 60 degrees C at full load
Do you think I need to replace this CPU? I think it might be breaking...

Well, my hard disk had a head crash last week, and I'm sorry to say that I didn't back up my data. I was looking for a great deal on external storage, since, while storage is cheap, I wanted a lot. Then I planned to reformat for a fresh start. I should've been more diligent and backed up the most important things anyways, especially since I have a crazy amount of webspace available, and a bunch of DVD-RWs. x_x; On the bright side, I'm getting my fresh start. The idea of rebuilding my computer universe...
