Massive Memory Print

18 x 8GB Mushkin DDR3

144GB of Memory Available

I usually screenshot my system memory when I do a big upgrade so I can be ammused later on. I thought I would snag a screenshot and post the upgrade to this HP ESX server. The 12 GB of memory in my desktop already seem small by comparison. This ESX server was upgraded with eighteen 8GB sticks for a total of 144GB of RAM.

Check out F.lux. It automatically adapts the color of your computer's display to the time of day. Install it, set your location, type of lighting for day, and type of lightning for night and you're set.

Living on the coast lends one to keep a watchful eye on hurricanes. My favorite hurricane tracking software was Eye of the Storm, but they discontinued the software last year. I still haven't found a software replacement but the StormPulse website seems to be a very nice alternative.

An Atari 800XL was used for the lead piano/organ sound. A Texas Instruments TI-99/4a as lead guitar and an 8 Inch Floppy Disk as bass. A 3.5 inch Harddrive was used as the gong with an HP ScanJet 3C used for all vocals.

Alternative To Print

I just stumbled on a neat site called AlternativeTo where you give it the name of the software that you are looking for a substitute for. I often look through lists of types of software to find alternative versions. This could prove to be faster.
