1W22 More Artists

20 02 2007

Well this week I spend 2 days putting together my PC; one wrong wiring can make your day go bad….. that’s all it takes. Anyways, after I finally handle to put the pieces of my PC together I was surprised how fast it was. Enough with it, I am glad it is working just fine.

Paula Rego

Paula Rego, an artist where every picture tells her story. Even though I didn’t have many days this week to work on my MADA, because I went to Bulgaria for 4 days, I manage to have a good look on her work. I like the cartoonish feeling she is putting in her paintings. Her style is very interesting and it is something that may help the develop of my project.





1W21 Presentation

12 02 2007

My video presentation

This week I have gather all the videos and still images I will use fro my presentation. Next week I will have to write down, and sketch out my presentation scheme. I have to plan out the layout and the look of it. I am still concern the format I will present it, so I keep it lower than 60meg or even smaller (limitation is 100meg as I know)

Some technical staff

I have order a new computer, so I can work a bit faster with video and animation. I decide to write down some info that may be helpful for anyone.

After a lot of research I have order the following PC

Lite-On SHM-165H6S 16X LightScribe Dual Layer DVD+/-RW Drive (LightScriber so you can laser print on DVD/CD)

320GB 7200RPM SATAII 16MB Seagate/Maxtor 3.5″ Hard Disk (For system files etc)

MSI P965 Platinum M/B Core 2 Duo/ P965/ DDR2-800 (this motherboard can support the coming up Core Quad Intel processors)

500GB 7200RPM SATAII 16MB Seagate Hard Disk (For projects files and softwares)

2GB DDR2-800 2GB CL5 6400 DDR2 XMS2 (2x1GB Pair) (DDR2-800 for faster memory – you can get 1000+ but are double or even more the price) (more is better but XP support up to 3g and better use memory in pairs – 2 -4 -6 etc)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 CPU 2.4GHz 1066MHz 4MB (775) (better get this one rather the 2.6 and save money for the Quad processors when they go at reasonable price)

MSI nVidia GeForce NX8800GTX 768MB DDR3 2DVI/HDTV PCI Express (the faster Geforce graphics card at the moment)

PC case – Thermaltake Kandalf VA9000 (for better cooling system)

By the way don’t get Windows Vista YET, because they don’t have all the drivers to support a bit older hardwares. In other words if your hardware is not certifite Vista ready don’t get into trouble. Let Vista get a bit “mature”.  

If you need more info or help to pick the right system for you, don’t hesitate to email me.
