I haven’t had much chance to play in the last week. I’ve managed to squeeze in about two matches of MWO and that’s about it. The kids have been messing up their bedtimes and then Mrs and I have been watching random movies from iTunes.

I’ve been shopping and have picked up a couple of items, a new router to give me 802.11n, dual band and gigabit ethernet. This is to help support the 2 Apple TVs in the house.

I also spent a little bit on my PC. I’ve picked up a new case, it’s fairly plain but a step up in size from my old one (it’s had about 3 full new computers inside it), an SSD for the system drive and a couple of 2TB disks for storage. I plan to move all of my movies onto it so I can reboot into Windows on the iMac (to play MWO) whenever I like without disturbing the kids watching the Apple TV.

Now I just need a chance to swap the guts over.

Coolermaster 690 II Advanced USB3

In the future I’ll upgrade the graphics card as well, it’s only an old 9500GT, but as the PC spends it’s time playing ABC iView and looking up Scrabble words it works fine. The 9500 actually runs MWO alright as well.

UPDATE Well I had a chance to start moving the guts over… got to the point ready for the first power on, but bright flash, yucky smell… ah crap, I’ve fried something (PSU dead I expect, but what else), not auspicious beginning!

I'm a married dad who likes to ride my motorbike and if I ever find the time, to play computer games. This blog started out as just WoW, but has moved onto a whole lot of different things.
