^.^ Yes I got both of those today, my mom bribed me. Get a hair cut and a new stick of RAM for my PC, I couldn't refuse. So after 10 months forgetting to cut my hair, I kinda needed it. I was so off balance getting outta the barber's chair lol. Gotta love those moments.
Another cool thing, I'm getting my mom addicted to playing Portal for the first time. She rarely uses her computer and it was kinda funny watching her play an FPS for the first time ^////^ I was prolly just as bad my first time though.
So I get this 1gb stick of RAM for my PC, but I have this problem. For over a year, my comuter won't boot correctly again if I turn it off or hard restart it. I gotta fiddle with pulling the video card out, resetting the BIOS and do a rain dance and maybe it will be nice and boot for me. So, I was excited about getting this new memory, but a lil weary of turing off my PC. No problem! A thunderstorm blew in and the power cut off for me lol! I happily installed said memory, did a rain dance and my PC eventually booted again, now with 3gb of RAM...yay!!
Another thing that's bugged the crap outta me is Livestream's Procaster. I really can't say enough about how much I hate that program. From it's cheaply thrown together flash GUI, to it's use of ffdshow to encode video and rape your RAM like Tails at a furry con.....it's pure junk. I've had it use up to 1.7GB or more of my memory just to stream video. In contrast to this, I also stream on Skype, it works fine, streams full quality to one person without any hit in quality and uses very little memory. Livestream just can't suck in their pride and forget about reinventing the wheel I guess.
But that's okay, becaue I crawled out from under my rock and noticed this bad boy. Adobe? Free? Hell yes? Hehe, it's a pretty decent app. Used about 100mb worth of memory and around 20% of my CPU to do it's thing. In your face LiveStream Procrapper!!!
Oh, and as for my tooth problem, well..it's still got a hole in it I guess, but I killed whatever was in it several times over. Held some peroxide in my mouth for 5 minutes, the did the same with listerine. A while after that no more tooth pain..yay! The dentist can suck it for now, just like livestream, and whoever made the BIOS chip on my motherboard, and that overpriced seafood resturant downtown. ..and..I better call it a night ^/////^
So's what does more memory mean for my art? That I can use more layers and be a lil more crazy with SAI than usual. I can also run more apps at the same time and open a browser for once while streaming...oh my gosh...unheard of! It's like...getting an extra testicle, or a 2 foot penis and new pants to fit.
