How To Break A Computer

Put both fans on back-to-front

Yep, somehow, don't know how, both my case fan and my CPU fan were on back-to-front! I only realised because it's been rebooting itself a lot lately, and I had the case open while I was trying to fix it. Just hope it's not permanently damaged…

It'll completely mess up the RSS feed, but who cares it's cool! No-one reads the RSS feed anyway.

This is just a tester, but I'm gonna make more of these and write a script to insert them for me.

This is in preperation for my latest set of web sites (so I link to them from every entry), which are now designed... but who knows how long it'll be this time until I create them!

I Would Make An Excellent Programmer!

Writing about web page http://www.blogthings.com/mbtiquiz/

Nice to know.

Your #1 Match: INTJ

The Scientist

You have a head for ideas – and you are good at improving systems.
Logical and strategic, you prefer for everything in your life to be organized.
You tend to be a bit skeptical.
You're both critical of yourself and of others.
Independent and stubborn, you tend to only befriend those who are a lot like you.

You would make an excellent scientist, engineer, or programmer.

Your #2 Match: INTP

The Thinker

You are analytical and logical – and on a quest to learn everything you can.
Smart and complex, you always love a new intellectual challenge.
Your biggest pet peeve is people who slow you down with trivial chit chat.
A quiet maverick, you tend to ignore rules and authority whenever you feel like it.

You would make an excellent mathematician, programmer, or professor.

Google Compute – Distributed Computation

Writing about web page http://toolbar.google.com/dc/

Google Compute is a new feature of the Google Toolbar. The goal of Google Compute is to make a contribution to science by enabling Google Toolbar users to easily donate their idle computer time to worthwhile causes. The Google Compute version of the Google Toolbar detects when a computer is idle and puts it to work on complex mathematical problem from such fields as drug design and global climate modeling.

Sounds more worth-while than looking for little green aliens!
