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.

Soo… back in Athens

After five days of hard work in Warsaw, I am finally back in Athens. We put some long hours there, making sure that everything was great, and I believe the AMD team did a great job.

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...
