    Happy New Year!!

    Only a few more hours to go here; just finished dinner and then its a quiet night in besides the fire, watching TV and drinking with wifey, Mom and Dad.

    Finished building my new DAW PC today; don't want to hex it but its looking good so far. Tomorrow, I will load the O/S - Win XP.

    Interesting seeing my Mom and Dad's reaction to building it - they are now convinced they spawned a genius of megga proportions as I slowly built it on the kitchen table in a few hours. Of course, we all know that its not like that; its just a matter of plug and play.

    Anyway, I trust you all have a good evening and look forward to a more positive year next year

    Happy New Year!!

    Most of the art is in knowing which components to buy. The actual assembly is fairly easy. Good luck with it. BTW, why XP? I would have thought you would have gone with Windows 7.

    Dachays

    Our lead singer is off on his annual 8-week pilgrimage to Aruba this Sunday. So the Dachays will be on hiatus for a bit. We had a "final" practice last night. Sounded pretty good... but it usually does after a half bottle of Johnny Walker Black.

    Thanks, off to bed now after a quiet night in.

    The art of buying the right components took over a year in the planning and research against a constant changing tide of technology but in the end the components self select pretty much, once you set your budget.

    So, a new decade and a new quad CPU DAW to play with.

    Why XP? Because it's stable and I didn't want another learning curve plus I'm not sure all my VSTi's would work in Win 7 yet. Plus there is uncertainty about the real tangible benefits of moving to 64 bit platform. I will do at some stage, but not quite yet.

    Have fun!

    So then I imagine we'll be hearing some of your recordings in the near future?

    HAPPY NEW YEARS!
    Bring on 2010!

    We're staying in as usual,not even having a real dinner.
    We just watched District 9,creepy,disturbing,good movie.My son and I are going to see Avatar tomorrow.

    Which means right about the time they get it all down pat,it'll be obsolete.

    I'm thinking building may be the only way I can afford a new computer.O have the added headache of either need a MOBO with PCI slots or upgrading my UAD cards.

    Let us know how you come out.

    My yougest daughter and her boyfriend saw Avatar yesterday and reports it as being "excellent - Lord of the Rings x 1000%." However, it seems to be panned by the critics.

    One of the reasons I chose to upgrade now is because very soon, PCI slots in MoBo's will disapear and I didn't want the expense of buying a new soundcard. Having said that, I am considering buying a F/wire interface but it depends on how long wifey's patience with my current spending spree lasts out

    I must confess, putting all this lot together and spending $2k makes you sweat when you first push that "on" button, but so far so good. BIOS got tweaked yesterday and with a bit of luck, I can load XP today.

    A couple of surprises/concerns along the way; the i7 CPU chip has no pins and socket holes - just friction holds the CPU in place. Plus the amount of torque required to push the locking lever in place was a bit scary - much more than I expected to exert. And then, did I put enough thermal paste on the cooler? However, as reported above, it all seems to be hanging together well - CPU temp was only 36 Deg C after half an hour. (98 Deg F).

    All in all, I reckon I have saved about $800+ compared to if I had bought it from a specialist DAW company.

    Later!

    2010
    Well,it's here.
    I come into this new decade with a bit of uncertainty but with a solid foundation.My son turns 13 this month,my daughter 11 the month after.This decade will be their decade,from preteens to adulthood by the decades end.My only goals for this decade are to get the kids into college and build the nest egg,anything else will be gravy.


    The weather
    It's going to be cold all weekend.

    One of the reasons I chose to upgrade now is because very soon, PCI slots in MoBo's will disapear and I didn't want the expense of buying a new soundcard.
    I may have to look into this,as I have a Delta 66 and three UADs,I could be looking at a huge loss when I decide it's time to upgrade.But then again,shouldn't I be able to get a decent computer cheaper now?I don't need much more power than I have now and I'm assuming todays rigs can handle anything you can throw at them.

    Either way I have a rig that works now,it's just that one day I'll flick the switch,it won't turn on and I'll be at the crossroads.
