The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Dawnguard trailer.

Just in case you haven't already seen it...



Hell. Yes.

League of Legends acronyms.

As someone who was recently new to League of Legends, I understand that some of the terminology can be confusing. There are a lot of acronyms used during gameplay that you might not be familiar with, so I thought I would share my knowledge with new players here

KS = Kite Safety

This person is complimenting you for your impeccable kite safety. Safety is always an important part of flying kites, so make sure to thank the person for noticing.

ULT = Ulterior Motive

A warning that one of your teammates may be scheming against you. Be careful.

FEED/FEEDER/FEEDING = I'm going to get some food

This person is hungry and is taking a break from the game to eat.

FARM = Literal farming

This person is informing their team that they dream of becoming a farmer. It's not really relevant to the game.

CARE = I don't care

This person is responding to the last thing said in a sarcastic way, indicating that they don't care.

JUNGLE = Stay out

A warning that the jungle in the game is dangerous and full of insects. Stay out at all costs.

BD = Big Damage

This person wants you to get more damage items.

Hey Internet, cut it out already.

1. Photobombs

Yes, that cat jumped right into the frame as you took the picture. There's a weird guy making a face in the background, amazing. Stop it already.

2. YOLO

What the shit is this? Where did this come from? No, just no.

3. Facebook

Yep, still pissed about Facebook. The Internet and various companies can't seem to get enough of it. I'm sick to death. Enough is enough.

4. Ad Captchas

I've heard about these for a long time, but only recently encountered one. Horrible in all ways.

5. Ron Paul

He didn't win the nomination. He was never going to. Can we please forget this loony bastard ever existed now? That would be great.

New Zazzle stuff.

In case you hadn't seen, I have a Zazzle Store.

I like to make stuff and post it there from time to time. I just made something new, a series of items featuring stylized "Normal people worry me" text. The graphic was made in Gimp. I really like the way it turned out.

Check it out here.

Going Intel.

So, I'm currently using an AMD CPU. More specifically, an AMD FX 8150. It has 8 "cores" and is overclocked to a speed of 4.6GHZ. Soon, I'm going to switch to an Intel CPU.

Why? Well, honestly, AMD CPUs kind of... suck, right now. At least, compared to Intel. Don't get me wrong, they're decent processors that are great for lower cost systems or simply systems that aren't expected to perform with the best of the best.

To demonstrate my point, I give you some benchmarks and comparisons from Anandtech, Toms Hardware and Hot Hardware. Compare Intel's newest CPU, the 3770K, to mine. As you can see, not very encouraging for an AMD fan. So I've decided to finally bite the bullet and swap out my CPU and Motherboard for Intel stuff. I'm sort of addicted to tinkering with my computer so it should be a fun experience.

As soon as I get everything set up and running, which should hopefully be before the end of June, I'll report back. I'll give a review including my results with the Motherboard and overclocking the CPU. If anyone reading this has already gotten an Intel 3770K, let me know how it's gone for you. As soon as AMD gets their shit together I would be happy to get another CPU from them, until them, I'm going Intel.

Domain transfer complete!

As I mentioned on Twitter, I have transferred this domain, DavidGX.com, away from GoDaddy to Namecheap.com. Why? Well, in case you forgot or didn't hear in the first place, GoDaddy was a supporter of the awful SOPA bill that would have had a terrible impact on the Internet, but was defeated. They attempted to withdraw their support for SOPA and even full-on oppose it but most people who planned to leave GoDaddy saw through the obvious PR move and kept their promise to transfer their domain(s) to someone else.

I, regretably, missed the official "Dump GoDaddy" day by quite a large amount but better late than never, right? So, as of now, the transfer should be complete and everything should be running smoothly. If you're interested in a new domain or just an escape from the likes of GoDaddy, check out namecheap.com for yourself. Dealing with them has been nothing but pleasant so far. Plus, they opposed SOPA from the start.

Everything should be running fine, but if you have any issues with the site, let me know.
