Just bought this little lime-green lamp, to hang down beside the sofa.... Yes, yes. I know it is a bright colour, however my home need some colour with all them 70's earth tones that I have around the place.

Also. I found this little neat thing for my Commodore64. PI-1541 and FastLoader cartridge combination.

Finally.... I have bought yet another RGBtoHDMI adaptor for my Amiga collection. This time version2 that are an universal OCS/ECS adaptor, controlled by a jumper. That way, it can be used for all machines with DIP socketed Denise. It can still not display the higher resolutions that ECS provides. However none of them were used for the old 1985 to 1992 games at all. It also eliminates flicker on interlaced screenmodes. For the price. This is the absolute best solution for modern display on the Amiga. Just use the lowest smoothing filther, and you get a good result without any screen lag whatsoever that the naked eye can detect.

I made a new video for YouTube, with the adaptor installed in my Amiga500-DesktopCase conversion machine, explaining and giving answers to a few important questions that I have recieved about the adaptor......

Uploading as of now.

Again... Sorry about my inferior English. I only speak English on my YouTube channel. (and having two beers, won't help eighter)

Nice one, I do like that 500 desktop!

Today, I changed the coolant in the Corsair H-50 AIO in my XP gamer. The thing must be a dozen years old at least. Surprisingly, it still had a fair bit of coolant in there and not too many bits of shit came out.

A 50-50 mix of distilled water and blue car anti-freeze went in. It sounds quieter at least and helped pass an hour.

Nice.... Back in 2006, I wondered how these liquid cooling systems would play out in the future. Guess I found the answer now. :-D
Nice job on the refurbishment, and good all that came out. Looking at your words, I could not help but thinking about this bizarre Japanese English lesson video....

And thanks for the words on my a500-Desktop. I did put a number of hours into it. :-)

Oh my word! You swine, that's gonna bugger up my sleeping pattern and my youtube recommendations for weeks now!


Aye, I wasn't too sure about those AIO's. I got that when they first came out but moved on to a proper system with a reservoir. They are a decent, cheap and simple alternative to a good air cooler but with the advantage of being slightly quieter.

People make the mistake of mounting the rad with the pipes at the top. Or with the rad lower than the CPU. This leaves an air-gap the weak pump can't always overcome. Especially as it ages and fluid is lost.

I think mine had lost some fluid over the years as the last few cold boots it had made a bit of noise. Noise means air so that's why I investigated. I got an additional half of a big syringe of fluid into it over what I got out but left a bit of room for thermal expansion.

It's quiet as a mouse again now.

Hehe... I got a bad case of.... LOL

Are you sure it will stay quiet, if I step on the mouse.

Anyway. I have a couple of joke's. (more)
How do you make a cat sound like a dog? Well... You pour petrol on it and light a match... Whoohhh
Then how do you make a dog sound like a cat??? You freeze it and put it to the table saw.

A family of tomatoes had to cross the street and the small one had problems keeping up.
When everyone else, but the smallest one, had come across. The mother turned and said "Come on ketchup".

It is better to have controll over the shit, than shit on the controll.
Honestly I don't know.... Beeeeecause.... I got a bad case of....

Sorry. I have begyn writing with a wonderfull woman these couple of days.
I am just a bit happy right now. Can't sleep. For what I can tell, and what I know about her so far, she is like the
female version of my self.

Woman? Haven't found one of those yet, not since somewhere around 12 years ago, not without having to pay for it. But that's what happens when you live in a libtard craphole with a mostly male population and severely defective women, you gotta be short, must be wimpy, also preferably either an ex-forces soyboy or faggoty nurse if you want to get anywhere and absolutely must be employed, as proof you're a bitch, so you're not around the house when they fuck someone else and wonder why they won't put out when you get home. Or that's what I see around me, at least, I just use hookers, no bullshit, they don't care if you're tall, deep voiced, confident and don't wax the hair off your body, they just provide the service you're paying for.

Completed my first attempt of Dorito%

Next to try on a 6MHz machine.

Yup. I totally know what you are saying. And whatever people do, then it is their business. I am personally a man with an extreme liberal view on how people choose to live their life and what they do. I mean. If getting honney smeared all over the body and have it wrapped in plast foil, is what makes people turn on. Have at it. As long as they dont make me do it. As long as we as a society, help them that are in need and are respectfull and not hurt anyone. Then have at it. Eat berries while you sky dive naked for all. I don't care. :-)

Honestly. The worst part of living in the place were I live. Is that there are not that many metal heads. Those that say they are, is mostly those highschool teenage motorhead wannabe's, that run around with a Nirvana tshirt without ever having listened to any Nirvana song. Like. There were a 19 year old drunk girl, that practically throw herself at me, one month after I moved in. There I was, not having drunk anything, and she was standing there not being able to controll her balance. Christ!! Not really the perfect idea of the start on a good time all night long. Yup. Piss drunk, only 19. Like. I am not a child snatcher for crying out loud. If I were 20, and drunk, then I would not have had the controll to say no. However I sat her down at a bench table and explained in slow and simple details as to why I said no to her.

Was not able to resist, when I found out that they had one Retrotink2x-Mini left on Pixelperfect in Ireland.
It was the purple one that was left, and I normally don't like these colours, yet it seems to fit it better than clear.
What IS it with me and buying "the last one in stock"? I mean... I bought the last C64-C case in black that was on PixelWizard.

And yup.... The woman in question, that I am writing with. We have more in common than first meets the eye.
We both hate sports in the tele, we both love big portions of meat and not only are we metal-heads we also like much the same.
She do not want to move in, or have someone move in to her, before dating at least one year. Our homes are our personal space.
And she loves to play Giana Sisters.... So far, perfect.
We have agreed on waiting to meet up, before Covid-19 restrictions are lifted more in Februaery, or if we get vaccinated before that.

If this ends up getting serious. Then I will end up with a woman, that do not care how much vintage stuff I have,
unless every square meters are covered in old parts. And that is not the way I want to live. I have a corner that my stuff are in.

No idea where my views sit. On the societal side of things, largely conservative, but at the same time, I don't think it's any of my business what people do on their own private property - that doesn't mean I cannot judge their actions, however, if they choose to make those actions public, nor does it mean I can't criticize a society that is broken.
As such, I shall criticize the men for being weak and the women for being control freaks who look for that sort.

The metal head thing is much the same here, at best you'll find one who listens to Guns 'n' Roses (which isn't metal, in my mind) and then they get arsey when you say a band they don't know and then go silent. Luckily that was never too important to me. The 'gamer girls' are the same, as they usually just call themselves that because they played Farmville once. Luckily those sorts are always ugly and annoying, so I never even bothered pursuing one.
Oh, you think nineteen is bad? Wait until you have a thirteen year old on your street getting a massive crush on you, it's awkward as hell, like you're weary of taking out your garbage because you know she'll show up at your gate and start bothering you. Tou keep telling her to go away and she keeps showing up, going so far as to actually knock at your door and ask if they can do anything for you - I went to the parents at that point and told them to keep her off the street, because some day she'll go to some guy's house who would do something unpleasant. Probably just as well I don't like children, not in that way, not in any way at all really.
For the record, I wouldn't even consider any woman under twenty five.

But no, if you're a man, you'll get nowhere here, you have to be a whiny little faggot if you want a relationship and you'd better want a bad one, to be a little paypig. That kind of thing isn't for me.
The nurses and ex-army thing wasn't just a random statement. Most people I know are single, but a while ago, me and a friend noticed that the only people we know who are in relationships are all either nurses or military people.

Over the years, I've gotten quite good at ignoring the nagging voice in the back of my head. It used to piss me off, I used to think there was something wrong with me, that I was ugly or unlikeable, but it suddenly clicked that when I was younger, I never had a girlfriend or even a friend from my city, all of them were from out of town. As such, it's a problem with the people here, which figures as most of them don't even speak English, they speak a unique dialect with limited words instead, which I don't speak, so they can't understand a word I'm saying, so it's impossible to converse with them. If it's not that, they're Slavic and I don't speak their language either and find their women repulsive. I'd move to a different city, but I can't, so there's nothing I can do about it.



On a lighter note, I ordered a CGA card and an EGA card, solely to see if I can get them to work on different monitors. Probably not, but I can't do worse than the supposed converters that never work.
