Apartment of the Dead (Short Film)

aptdeadcopy

Here is a short film I helped make for my Introduction to the Arts class. It was inspired mainly by Left 4 Dead but also influenced by pretty much all the zombie movies out there. It takes a somewhat humorous approach at what would happen if the people most prepared for a zombie apocalypse were doomed. The editing and special effects were done by me (it was my first time to do both).

My Computer

Just thought I’d share some pics of my current PC. I won this at Quakecon 2007, it was the “Dream Machine” sporting the following specs:

  • Intel Quad Core QX6700 Extreme Edition
  • 2GB Corsair XMS PC6400 DDR 2
  • (2) EVGA 8800 Ultra’s in SLI
  • 1200 watt Thermaltake PSU
  • Cooler Master CSX custom paint job case
  • (2) 750GB HDD’s + (1) 150GB WD Raptor
  • ASUS Striker Extreme mobo (now an EVGA 680i SLI)

The specs are still the same, the only thing I’ve done with it is add watercooling and make it pretty. This also might be useful for anyone looking to watercool a Cooler Master CSX case. I completed this project back in July of 2008, but just recently took some pictures, enjoy!

Project Curdled Completed

It has been a long 7 months, but finally the CGEC is over and Project Curdled (now called Overdose) is completed. Check out the video below (although it seems someone forgot to record gameplay sound). We built an arcade cabinet for this game, but I don’t have any good pictures of the finished product so you’ll have to wait until the judging is over for me to post them.

 

 

Use Your iPhone 3G as a Modem – Using the USB Cable!

 iphone3g_to_desktop

I’ve had the iPhone 3G since it first came out. I camped out the night before, #2 in line for 15+ hours. I love my iPhone, so naturally my obsession with the device led me to jailbreak it. I’m running 2.2.1 software on there (haven’t "unlocked" it yet since I’m on AT&T for a long time), but it is jailbroken.

I’ve used PdaNet quite a bit and just recently, they released desktop software (XP/Vista only right now) that allows you to simply plug in your iPhone via USB and "pipe" the 3G Internet connection directly into your desktop or laptop. This is quite handy as you can turn off WIFI which will save quite a bit of power/heat vs the old way of tethering and also serves to charge your iPhone while sipping from its Internet connection!

About a week ago, the campus apartment Time-Warner internet here slowed to a crawl. It went from a typical 1.5Mbps connection to less than 100Kbps with huge latency spikes. I became fed up with this and decided to give the newest version of PdaNet a try.
