Farewell Rebirth?

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes * 4. 2,102,400 minutes. 24/7 faithful service from my beloved desktop 'Rebirth' and I think she's on her way to gadget heaven.

After hanging, she didn't want to boot anymore. The fan/heatsink for the chipset might have separated, possibly frying it. Sigh, I really thought she still had a good year or two left.

I'll spend some time to locate the real problem, then contemplate if I should:
  • Completely abandon having a desktop
  • Locate and buy the part (probably phased out by now)
  • Upgrade the mobo, processor and memory althogether (ouch)

Left Straight? FAIL! Pacman vs Hitman

Image from

Hehe, I'm riding the Manny Pacquiao vs Ricky Hatton post fight fever. Manny probably wanted to prolong the fight, but was pissed at how dirty Hatton fights.

It was setup with a right jab/feint. No question, that was a mastodonic, solid, legen... wait for it.. dary punch. Some sites call it a left hook, some sites describe it a left cross which are probably both correct. But how in heaven's name is that a "left straight?!" I'm so glad that I didn't watch the Philippine broadcast first. I'd be cursing/laughing so bad that I would not have enjoyed his win.

Go Manny! Get more money, make mayweather see stars too.
