On vacation

I am currently on vacation. I will continue to post updates intermittently during these few weeks.

2008-01-02: I’m back! (was impossible to get a reliable / affordable internet connection whilst overseas) Returned to realise that my second-hand 6600GT on the PC rig had failed. Sought to replace it with a 8800GT but it for some reason just couldn’t work with a 6 month old ASUS M2V. Ol’ well, a 8600GT will make do then.
