I know its not that interesting, but I spent some time optimising the site. Should load much quicker now.
My mate Jeremy in one of his recent shows explained that he doesn’t even use wallpaper. I can’t imagine not tinkering with computers. Just to show how much I play about here is a cut of my desktop. I usually have a different workflow, but I moved everything around so you can see it all in one go.
Here are some photos of my new GTX 970, it replaces my old 7970. The GTX 970 is smaller in length, just, but taller. The fans are substantially larger. This is a good thing. The larger the fan, the slower they have to turn for the same airflow. The heat sink can be larger too.
AKA, the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme.
This is the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme 64gb on USB 2!
Notice how on random small file writes and reads it beats out this 2TB hard disk. The HDD is not a bad model, its a Samsung I’ve had for years. That’s just on USB 2.
What about USB 3?
This is insane. Only on 512MB writes does the hard disk even have a chance. On everything else its destroyed.
What about an early SSD?
Ah now we see. It fairs very well, but just can’t the random reads of the Kingston 96GB SSD. Its trounced by a modern SSD, even a VFM one like the MX100.
However by every other metric the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme is the fastest flash drive I have EVER seen.
Oh and BTW here is the slowest 64GB USB stick Sandisk make.
Batman Begins promotional 128mb USB flash drive
Random make 1GB USB flash drive
The big disappointment, Sandisk Cruiser Blade 64GB USB flash drive
Crucial MX100 512GB SSD on my X58 based motherboard.
My fav plugins for Windows at the moment are: Favicon Downloader and KPEnhancedEntryView. The former allows me to download fav icons and make my keepass easier to navigate. The later just makes it easier to make quick edits.
My preferred Android client is Keepass2Android, mainly because of the keyboard integration.
It’s just for stuff I like on Tumblr, so no new content.
