Dell XPS 8000

I just purchased a new computer! Its a Dell XPS 8000. The specs are sick. Here comes the nerd porn:

  • Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64Bit, English (will be installing Windows 7 Ultimate)
  • Intel® Core™ i7-860 processor(8MB Cache, 2.80GHz)
  • 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1066MHz – 4 DIMMs
  • 24″ Dell ST2410 Full High Definition Monitor (for Julie, I already have a 24″)
  • 1024MB nVidia GeForce GT220
  • 1TB – 7200RPM, SATA 3.0Gb/s, 16MB Cache
  • 16X DVD+/-RW Drive
  • Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio

The best part about it was the price, it was only $1,100 out the door! I have a feeling Visual Studio is going to load much better now.


Thank you Vista.

Thanks for deleting that file, msims32.dll, you thought you didn’t need. That really made me happy when my PC wouldn’t boot. Oh, and thanks again for allowing me to enter a DOS prompt after creating a Vista Recovery Disk. It really made it easier to restore the file that you thought you didn’t need.

WTF Collection

If you like John Lajoie you will probalbly laugh at his latest video.


Since the WebOS 1.2 update I am now required to enter a PIN every time I access my phone. It’s a policy pushed by my work because I have my phone connected to their exchange server. Good thing WebOS is Javascript!

setup: function() {
try {
Mojo.Log.info(“Phone App – Pin Assistant — Setup Called”);
this.controller.document.body.className = “firstuse”;


setup: function() {
this.unlock(); return;


Tada! No more annoying PIN.
