still one of the best deep house mixes on YouTube :) :D XD
In the beginning, there was Jack
And Jack had a groove
And from this groove came the grooves of all grooves

And while one day viciously throwing down on his box,
Jack boldly declared: "Let there be house!"
And house music was born

I am, you see, I am the creator
And this is my house
And in my house there is only house music

But I am not so selfish
Because once you enter my house,
It then becomes our house and our house music

And you see, no one man owns house,
Because house music is a universal language
Spoke' and understood by all

You see, house is a feeling
That no one can understand really
Unless you're deep into the vibe of house

House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body
And as I told ya before,
This is our house and our house music

In every house, you understand, there is a keeper
And in this house the keeper is Jack

Now some of you might wonder,
"Who is Jack and what is it that Jack does?"
Jack is the one who gives you the power to jack your body
Jack is the one who gives you the power to do the snake
Jack is the one who gives you the key to the wiggly worm
Jack is the one who learns ya how to walk yo' body
Jack is the one who can bring nations and nations
Of all jackers together under one house

You may be black, you may be white
You may be Jew or Gentile
It don't make a difference in our house
And this is fresh

a.k.a. my gaming rig
Victor Condino's profile photoIvan Vasin's profile photo
indeed, at this level of quality and productization (ergo price), the performance benefit of any additionally afforded overclocking is definitely not worth the additional cost of the cooling setup.  essentially, i'm paying extra for the fun of building the rig, shopping for its parts, and drooling over it.  it was a blast!  call it a hobby, albeit infrequently exercised :)

you might be surprised to know that there's very little aluminum in the cooling components.  while aluminum is a good choice for a radiator, blocks and pipes tend to perform better when made of highly refined copper; for the same reasons, high-end heatsinks usually have a copper core and aluminum fins.  stainless steel is the usual choice for structural and mounting components; it's often nickel-plated or chromated for a nice looking finish.  the tubing fittings are made of brass, as is common for plumbing fittings.

the parts are installed in a Lian-Li PC-V2120 case [].  distilled water (treated with a bit of antimicrobial formula) is pumped through it by an external reservoir/radiator/pump/controller, the Aqua Computer aquaduct 360 XT mark V [].

sadly, after leak testing the water loop and identifying a leak, i fried one of the video cards by failing to thoroughly clean up the spill.  i learned my lesson.  the rest of the rig works beautifully, and it's still very powerful.  not quite max settings in Assassin's Creed 4 or Rome 2, but pretty close :)

this is ABC, a surprisingly terrific dessert from a surprisingly terrific Malay restaurant, Penang, in Boston [].

also highly recommended is their Kang Kung Belacan, an irresistibly savory preparation of water spinach with Malay fermented shrimp paste.

Last night I had a dream that I lived in a speaker
And the sky was the smoked filled room in Ibiza
The sun was a crystal ball shining 24 hours a day
My air was the winds of the woofers bouncing off the wall
My soul was the spirit of all the children dancing
My rain was the sweat that rolled off their faces
This is my world
This is my planet
And my planet rocks!

Err, what?!  4043 bytes of C, for an IBM PC Emulator?!  This is pretty incredible for the International Obfuscated C Code Contest.

Getting the code down to <= 4096 characters to meet the IOCCC rule 2 overall size limit required a good deal of effort (and appreciable risk of divorce), with obfuscation being a pretty unavoidable consequence in most places … for the rest, I use short circuit operators whenever possible, mix x[y] and y[x], don’t use any flow control keywords except for for, use K&R-style declarations to honor the C language’s rich cultural heritage (plus it saves a byte), and occasionally go overboard with nasty nested indexes to give things like this: –64[T=1[O=32[L=(X=*Y&7)&1,o=X/2&1,l]=0,t=(c=y)&7,a=c/8&7,Y]>>6,g=~-T?y:(n)y,d=BX=y,l]

the coffee is top notch here. the macchiato i ordered was strikingly delicious. i loved it so much that i promptly found out their roaster (Stumptown) and ordered a variety to sample at home. the sandwich selection looks great. unfortunately, if you're vegetarian or pescetarian and looking for something more substantial than grilled cheese, then the choices narrow down to just one: Jimmy the Greek. this one was very tasty and nutritious. for a vegan option, you could omit or substitute the goat cheese. next time, i will try out their create-your-own grilled cheese sandwich menu, which admittedly has some interesting options for breads, cheeses, and addons. the coffee alone warrants five stars. i've heard several opinions that this is one of Boston's best coffee joints, and i must concur.
