Life after AMD… and a new theme!

As many of you know, I haven’t been a part of AMD PR for the past three months. The economic crisis that hit out industry took a toll in my (former) company as well, and many capable people were left without a job. So these three months served as a much-needed break from all this; after all, when your beloved subject becomes your job 24/7, sometimes you need to step back away from it all in order to fully appreciate it again. So, apart from some posts in Rage3D’s Off Topic, I stayed away from everything, on purpose. Well, that’s...


Dun dun duuuun… Spider!

So, with the cat (or should I say Spider) out of the bag, here are my impressions of the whole thing. I believe that, what AMD presented in Warsaw is the beginning of a new way of thinking for many consumers.

Soo… back in Athens

Five days ahead of me, that I believe will be lots of fun, I will get to see familiar faces and friends again, and, of course, will help launching some solid products. For those of you who are interested, here’s a cool wallpaper for you, at all its 2560×1600 glory, so resize accordingly

…but before that, London!

My schedule is kinda crazy lately, I’ll admit it. So it’s London fist, this Friday, and then Warsaw on Friday. At least I’ll get some Dr.Pepper with me back to Greece

On to Warsaw!

It’s been ages since I’ve updated this blog; I know. But I believe this is about to change. Anyway, lots of good stuff coming up next week, plus I have a certain trip to do On a totally unrelated note, I really wanted to install Windows Home Server yesterday – I had even assembled an older PC (AthlonXP 3000+, nForce4-SLI mobo, Radeon 9700 Pro :heart:, 2GB DDR1) for that; but my 40GB Hard disk felt unloved since the OS requests 65GB on installation. A big wtf from me to MS for that :confused: On the gaming front, I am trying...
