Programming, Motherfuckers

Pure genius:

Work environment

This the view I have for 8.5 hours a day. One PC, two monitors and some wardrobes filled with old and/or dead PC’s in the background. There’s also the mess I ship in every day which is mostly iRiver +headphones, USB cables and liquid refreshment.


The life of a software developer isn’t what Swordfish promised.



I bought another graphics card the other week. It’s another ATI Radeon HD5770 that I have Crossfired with my existing one. Oddly the new card is half the width of the old one, which is nice and welcome. I can now pretty much max out any game graphics quality wise and not have an issue. I’ve only really been playing COD MW2, Portal 2 and the new Snoper Elite V2 so nothing too taxing – I haven’t tried it with Crysis yet but I’m not expecting to get the max out of it, especially as I run at 1920×1200.

Still an impressive improvement over a single card. Cheap too buying second hand on ebay from people selling for the latest and greatest.
