I'm going to be delightfully old fashioned and use seperate gadgets for each task I want to perform and save myself some cash... go me.

I'm surprised at the price - an 8 GB RAM machine for less than a grand? I must be more behind on technology than I thought I was...

a fortnight ago EYO listed 2x2gb corsair memory packs at $99... was a promotion as they had started dealing in mac RAM also. They are now $110 for the 2x2 pack.

Sexy; and with over a terabyte of space to play around with a I don't think you'll be left wanting very soon.

One of my synth packets I am saving up for is 550gb ;) I will actually need a terrabyte HDD to install the damn thing.

Ill use it up fast.

Well I built me a new PC so I thought I'd 'share it with you' and revel in the glorious victory that has come about because of nerdiness.

This machine is built for audio editing...

Build: ($815)
Case: Generic Brand Case w:/650 watt p/s
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
CPU: Intel Quad Core 6600 (q2.4)
RAM: 8GB DDR 800mhz (4x2gb)
HDD1: 250gb Seagate (16mb cache)
HDD2: 500gb Seagate (32mb cache)
Video card: Nvidia 8600GT (512) Silentpipe edition.
CD/DVD: 2 Asus DL DVD-Burners w:/ lightscribe

Soundcard: M-Audio Project mix I/O (
Sound Card Expansion: Behringer ADA8000 8channel Preamp (optical in to Project mix).
PCI Card 1: 6 X USB expansion (4 external + 2 Internal)
PCI Card 2: 4 x Firewire Expansion (3 External + 1 Internal)
PCI Card 3: XXX
Speakersystem 1: Edirol MA-10A Micro Monitors
Speakersystem 2: Generic DSE 7.1 Surround sound system


At the moment the 250 seagate drive is partitioned into three partitions, one for Vista Ultimate, One for software for Ultimate, and the third for my ripped CD's. I will use vista as my primary 'online' operating system and as the distribution point for media around the house. It is also my digital imaging environment (photoshop etc).

The 500gb drive is set as a single partition and has Windows XP installed. It will be strictly an audio editing environment. So when I can afford new HDD drives there will be one for the Protools installation, and my other audio editing VST's and plugins on other drives etc.

Two external WD My book 320gb's at the moment are housing my sound/image/video libraries and are set up as mapped network drives from other computers in the house so I can grab files and watch them on TV etc...


I am using easybcd to dual boot, so on startup i can boot to XP or Vista depending on what I want to do. EasyBCD is here:

Games / Re: D&D 4th Edition
« on: June 13, 2008, 08:59:38 AM »
Wow I havent played D&D for years, its been a few re-incarnations since what i was used to. I mostly play the white wolf series of pen and paper role playing games (mostly Vampire: Requeim in World of Darkness setting). But again, so enormously expensive (although they are very sexy books) that its hard some times to justify the amount of cash.

Do you have a group of players? And do you go to the RGA meetings? If not talk to one of the gamer guys at Logical Choice they can probably tell you about the Riverina Gamers Association. They have a meeting hall which they run games from fortnightly or something... and membership is really cheap from memory. If you dont know any local players and want to, it might be worth checking out.

Suggestions / Forum - Section

I know this forum's primary purpose is to function as a place for students to discuss work during semester, but I think it could be beneficial to not only keep it open during the break for people to discuss work, maintain contact and share interesting stories, but to actually create a forum section for holliday-projects. Like there is a VFX/MPI subject coded forums, it might be nice to have a big generic 'non-contact' forum where people can just talk about what they are doing over the break. I would love that.  8)

yeah, i agree with u matt- we had 4 days to find $90! thats really not much time. it may have been worth the money- but a little bit of notice might have helped!  ;D

I assume then both you and Matt were unaware that you could get a ticket to attend and the university could invoice you. Meaning you could owe the university the money, that way you would have had a few weeks to pay that money back... you didnt have 4 days to come up with it, you could have had weeks.

I have always found 'Symposia' to be a kind of mixed bag as far as content goes. There is always those whom inspire and intrigue and leave a lingering sense of fulfillment if not eagerness to investigate your own practice further, and those whom you arent necessarily interested in, perhaps because of the genre of their work, or perhaps because they are a better designer than they are public speaker. It was a mix as well as the self indulgent and genuinely helpful, although some self indulgence was definately the flavour of the day, ha ha ha.

The day catered across a wide range of artistic endevours, showcasing design from a plethora of industries, and each of them echoed each other in saying; "when everyone is making white, make black... break the rules". I guess the main thing to take away is that "before you break the rules however, you must first know the rules", something which we all have been taught I'm sure. Anyways, it was a pretty dismal turnout to what has traditionally been a very worthwhile event, would be nice in the future to see a bigger turnout.

It might be nice in the future for their to be further consultation between disciplines in the school so that each course is adequately represented by speakers and each course could perhaps vouch for the quality of the speakers. Im not 100% sure this happened this year at the least...

Either way, probably the highlights for me were Linda Dement's multimedia pieces and Russell Kennedy from Monash University/ICOGRADA, they both had something different and interesting to say.
