Day 4 was completely devoted to overhauling nuclear detonation images and test data. Changed all dynamic urls to static ones and fixed shifted displayed image finally.

Same boring thing. Magnum pistol reviews today. Few minor changes here and there as well. Hopefully this will be over soon and I can get back to more fun stuff.

Very tedious and boring work to be honest. Still, gotta do it. Knife reviews are done. Now you can access reviews in appropriate folder by typing maker name in the url as a directory... I'll have to figure out how to convert steels in steel composition graph and later nukes database.

As before the most noticeable improvements were in the knife steel composition chart, steel comparison graph and Japanese knife type database. Those are request heavy parts, so that was desired and expected :)

Moving static content to separate domains and parallelizing things as I can. DL speedof the Japanese knife style and type database improved noticeably, and more or less knife steel composition chart has improved too. I'll continue tomorrow with further optimizations. Tired...

For some reason it wouldn't display images. Ok now.

About half way through with data format update/conversion. 157 alloy converted so far, with 187 more waiting :( 509 names for 157 alloys. Well, couple more weeks and I hope I'll get through this.

Happy 2010 to everyone!!! Best of luck ;)

Phew :) All in all, took around 3 hours to do the whole shebang, that included: removing 5870 stock cooler, sheesh, 15 screws and thermal past was splattered with a real thick layer on the GPU. They could've done a bit better for top of the line card; Installing EK waterblock, also not much fun, sticking thermal tape on the chips. What was good, after removing the cooler from the card I got enough space to fit the water pump close to the old location,didn't have to drill new holes :) Overclocked to 900mhz GPU clock and 1300ghz memory clock. Weird flicker when image viewer is loading the pic, but otherwise all ok. Played Stalker C0P for about an hour, temps never went above 45C, with DX 11, high settings. Obviously I had to find out that ATI stock BIOS is very conservative and MSI and other BIOS-es allow much higher overclock. So, now I have to flash the bios. Well, that's kindda given... Most of my video cards and most of my Mobo bios-es were flashed few times each...

Actually newegg sucks. Charged me 3$ for expedited processing, which is hardly ever done by any other online dealer, just to "try to ship the same day"... Pfft, and still they delayed it by one day and send it today. Now, I won't get that by the weekend and upgrade will be delayed till the next weekend. Well, I guess I'll install the stock card as is on Monday and then see how it works until the weekend, and then install waterblock on the card, flash the coolant, replace some tubing may be...
