    Precise, you say? I've noticed that I am not going to get the precision I need at such a high mouse pointer speed with my mice. Sometimes, compromises, man. (I should try these Razer mice and see if that changes my opinion. Using a normal mice might skew me towards having acceleration on.)

    My university's book store stocks a lot of Razer goodies. (It's also half a tech shop with ultrabooks and tablets for show.)

    I find myself needing mouse acceleration, Windows-style, for the precision in pointing. It feels more... natural. Never gotten the way it moved without it on.

    I've noticed that the light sensor behaves faster under Windows - and I've also found that the sensor is to the left of the cam.

    What do you think of Razer mice?

    Mum's thinking of getting me a new monitor because she finds the 11" screen to be small. Wonder what should I get. Probably need to get a Thunderbolt-to-HDMI adapter, too.

    Mmm, the light sensor is disabled by default. *enables it in Windows Control Panel*


    Man, this is handy!

    I used to use the Apple Magic Mouse, now I'm using a Logitech M310. I think any mice remotely ergonomic is better than the former...

    It feels so good to be able to use a proper three-button computer mouse with a physical wheel! No more accidentally scrolling in while trying to open pages in a new tab; no more fatigue trying to hold it without accidental scrolling; no more wrangling in Skyrim!

    This is my first Mac. I think it should work anyway. I've converter the disk to use MBR so that Windows Setup can partition it as if the MacBook was a Windows laptop all along.

    The Mountain Lion problems also surfaced a month ago and I wiped the entire thing back then. No dice. I'm going Windows only. Egad.

    I think the trouble started with the upgrade. Hmm...

    At least the SuperDrive is considered a generic drive.

    For some reason I decided to reboot after wiping all partitions. The laptop immediately downloaded the original Lion version of the recovery utilities and offered me to reinstall Lion, not Mountain Lion. Maybe a downgrade is in order?

    Software side, perhaps? I wiped the entire thing again. I had to eject the SuperDrive using another Windows laptop.

    Besides, DirectWrite is giving OSX a run for its money these days. It strikes a nice balance between OSX native and GDI.

    Gah, I hate it when processes mysteriously stop or not respond. *relaunches Finder*

    Ahh, that actually explains why some of my australian friends seem to be off school the majority of the year :x

    Go you :D This your final year or have you still got more to do? :3

    I think I've had enough with OS X.

    *proceeds to wipe it*

    I tried to love it, and while it's easy to use... I'd rather have a stable OS. Oh well, might as well as claim 44 GB of extra space.

Yes, because Melbourne is clearly superior to Sydney and demands greater respect.

You made my day. Well, sort of.

Stilll on the way home from the shops, but the connection tour was great.

I met up with Eon-Rider there and we took on the various mini games that were part of the MotionPlus series. I've got to admit, the games were mostly great and intuitive, although the Virtua Tennis was really clumsy. Quite literally, the players occasionally trip over without warning. Maybe that was just me - Eon-Rider thrashed me. XD

I have to say the best games were the Fencing, which was a damn...

Okay, I want to start making blogs again, so Imma start with a Platinum Log, as it's holidays and nothing interesting is happening :D.

Beginning - Load from save in Canalave Gym

I entered the battle with Byron expecting it to be a tough battle, so I had my Magmortar sitting in the wings to roast his Steel Pokemon.

Well I went to a friend's the other morning, so I wasn't online yesterday.
Pretty awesome time, though. We (there were four of us) sat in a boat on their dam, for ages with coke and chips. We did a few other crazy things, like jumping of the roof into the pool and playing with fireworks.

Also watched a few movies: Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, Boogeyman 2 (lol, it's pathetic, considering it's supposed to be horror.)
Yeah, it was all good.

Uh, that was just to get your attention. If it did, post a comment saying so. :D

Um, it's raining, which is good - it keeps the weather cooler. (It was ~40% Yesterday.) Um, boring day at home. Yeah.

I might be going to a friend's place tomorrow, so that'll be interesting, although I won't be here. Hmmm. I might actually get a name change to my real name, if only it wasn't already taken by some noob with 3 posts and no activity since 2004.

Hmmm... I've achieved...
