Healthful and Fortifying

Okay, no more ranting for a while. :) Thanks to ErikLevy and katzj (who I keep forgetting have SMP systems of their own) for their suggestions.

It's looking more and more likely that I'll be investing in the Abit VP6 board. Should be decent with a couple of Golden Orbs. Here's hoping they at least get the voltages right this time. I'll have to find some more information about the HPT370 controller though (the HPT366 included on the BP6 had a few issues).

I'm attempting to set up a small RAID-0 (software) array at work. The intended data is hideously non-critical, just thought it would be interesting to gauge any performance improvement from combining a few spare SCSI HDDs lying about (all signs point to 'yes'). Should things go well, I'm thinking about implementing a similiar scheme at home.

The Soldier of Fortune "Gold" upgrade (aka 1.06 patch) is wonderous. The SoF "bot" is very well implemented, and handy improve your game when you start to suck at it. Now to figure out the server commands.
