Gentoo Forums :: View topic – XGL

Been playing with a real eye candy Gnome desktop. Using the XGL X server. This uses pure OpenGl to render everything!

Makes OSX look like a ZX81, although I reckon it will crash pretty soon! 🙂

Bad, bad Coldplay ›› journal › itch.in::.

So I feel vindicated for hating Coldplay with such a passion! Not that I feel I need any justification other than the mind-numbing pap they make.

A few months ago I was bought a “copy protected” CD. I felt quite torn, between wanting to play the CD as it was a present, but disliking the cheating aspect of it!
CD was “F**k me I’m famous” by David Guetta.

(ps the stars are nor from me. I don’t give a fuck whether I swear!)

Lian-Li mouse pad

Aus PC-Market Online eStore

Well I finalylgot myself a mouse mat. A bit flash, anodized aluminium. Looks and feels the biz. However, it does not work with the shite mouse Ihave. Damm. I had to stick a piece of paper on top before it would work. Shame, it looks nice.

I think I really need a new mouse.

Mouse matless + optical = Doh!

mouse mats……. They’ve always got me a little annoyed. They always seem to be in the same place, which is not where my mouse wants to be. So I rarely use one.

However, over the last few months I’ve been getting a tad annoyed with my Logitech optical mouse. It seems to skip a lot. Especially when I am wanting to click on a crucial icon!!

Of course, stupid me does not realise that my VARNISHED desk is just not a good surface to use..

Sometimes I do feel a bit thick!
