so i found some 2 gig sticks ddr3 ram 1333 and made it into 12 gig 8+4 just using the onboard hdmi for now
streams quite nice..surf`s fine quite responsive...

less hardware for the power supply to run i guess...
using a cs-550 corsair supp and the 555 clocked to 3 gig..

it`s running quite nice..the 4170 air blower 4 pipe cooler and it runs around 50 deg C..
thinking of using a liquid cooler on it if the blower cannot hold it under 50 so far so good

The only PC I use is an old i7 Latitude laptop, probably about the same age as that Phenom.

It was $1700 when new so I just can't bring myself to get rid of it while it still works perfectly, albeit a bit slow. I can't sit at a desktop, it feels too much like work.

It's been a week since my Jack Russell's vet told me to buy shock collars for dogs since Blake won't stop barking. He has undergone training but he won't stop making unnecessary noise that even my neighbors get annoyed and mad. I can't even focus on my programming job.

Shock collar is a tough call, but if your dogs won't stop barking you have little choice.

Something you can try.

Shut the power off in your house, perhaps there is something electrical making sounds driving them to bark. If they stop with the home power shutdown you need to find the item making the noise.

What is the top frequency that dogs hear? Perhaps a frequency analyzer with a top end mike can do the job...

I'm not sure but I believe even a cell phone microphone can detect sounds we can't hear.

Thanks for the tips guys, I really do appreciate it. I will try it, to see if dog shock collars will work or not, I will also seek help from a professional dog trainer if I won't be able to resolve it on my own.

This reminds me of my now passed away dog. He was constantly barking in the old place and after we moved it suddenly almost completely stopped. I guess something was making him uneasy or something in the old apartment. It never occurred to me that it might be sounds that we couldn't hear.

You know they use sound as a torture device. Since a canines hearing is far beyond humans something like a high pitched whine from a ballast to a florescent light fixture could be torturous to a dog.

Could be simple bad behavior but best to rule out everything.

I hope you feel better mate. I was just discussing how I can no longer sleep 8 hours, I'm lucky if I get 5 hours a night. Seems like it started around 40, guess it's down hill from here.

Being somewhat younger I would say not needing 8 hrs of sleep is a good thing - the extra time can be dedicated to other activities (reading, surfing, etc). But I guess the deal is you sleep less, but you feel more tired, right?

For me, at around 2 PM I hit a brick wall and want to take a nap. I don't of course but it would be nice :)

So yep, less sleep more tired.

I will have a personal leave around a week. I will stay in a temple in the countryside to experience the monk's life.
There will be no internet access probably. ;)

Taking the family as well, or going solo?
Enjoy your time off!
Today I skipped worked with the missus, left the kids with the nanny and we're enjoying a relaxing day at the pool...
I couldn't make it without technology though...
The nice thing is you'll have the time to meditate about various problems and without interruptions you'll get better ideas!
Also, your employees will have the time of their life with the boss on leave :D

I think it's sort of a family run business, so maybe not :)
