The past week was kind of hectic, first of all I arrived
back home to a damaged home. It took a while to clean up the mess even with
determined family members and friends. In the near future I will be trying to get
some pictures up on facebook of the mess. Now that I don't have to worry too much about
that, I can focus my attention on school, development, and relaxation.
During the past week and a half, I have really missed
working at Telligent. I think this is because I have never been around so many
extremely intelligent people that have the same interests (e.g. the Telligenti)
as me. It was really nice to be able to talk
to people about development. Back home I
don't get the luxury of getting to talk to friends about development in anyway
shape or form. I also miss going in on Wednesdays to a nice cheerful breakfast,
now it's just a bowl of cereal. I guess I'll manage for the time beingJ.
Recently I got a sneak peak at the latest build of
reporting, (I normally would be able to check it out daily, but I am still
waiting for some ports to get unblocked here in my apartment). I truly believe that the public will be
stunned at what the Telliterns have accomplished this summer, I know I am.
Some of you might be wondering what I have been up too since
I got back, well besides for cleanup, I was packing for school. At this point in time I'm moved into my
apartment, and I am currently enjoying waking up every morning at 7:00 AM to
make it to my 8:00 AM calculus classL. When it comes to workload this semester I
think I'm going to be sitting pretty nicely with 17 credits.
I was able to purchase a new dev box last week. Thankfully, Telligent made this possible for
me over the summer. Thanks!! In the past when I built a new rig I just
used my old one as a dev box, and the stats were never really that good (Celeron
1.2 with 768mb of ram). That isn't the case now, my new dev box consists of a Quad
core Q6600, 500gig hard drive, and 2 gig of ram. Best of all was that I found
this setup on Dell for only $700 shipped. Everything about it smokes my gaming
rig besides the video card. Never in my
life have I experienced multiple CPU intensive applications simultaneously load
in under a second from a cold start. I can say personally that I'll never
settle for anything less than a quad core with 8mb of l2 cache.
