Random bits

It’s saturday again! Trip to Kurium beach with Lev, Hazard, and Olga. Then back home for a shower, since the sea was particularly salty today. Some Pizza Mia, and then to Hazard for a movie. This time we watched Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb“, which was too real to be a comedy, but still was good. Back home to continue assembling of the new PC and general hardware rearrangement.

While building the new PC, I noticed a red sticker on top of the AGP slot on my new motherboard saying: “PLEASE USE ONLY 1.5V AGP CARDS TO AVOID PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THIS MOTHERBOARD”. That’s a bit too scary for the hardware idiot like myself, so I had to some Googling. The card I was planning to stick in was GeFORCE2 MX-200 32MB+TV. I don’t have to tell you how happy I was when I found a good explanation of wtf is 1.5V and how easy can I check the AGP card to comply right here.
Luckily, my card seems to be OK for the insertion. :)
