Today I watched Onechanbara, Bikini Samurai Squad. It's based off of the xbox box game of the same name. Both the game and the movie are pretty corny. Although this movie has, zombies, lots of blood, cute asian girls, swords, and bikinis. I don't see any reason to really complain, haha.

Even though this movie was really corny, it did have a few emotional scenes that I think added a nice twist to the story.

I have embedded the last fight scene below. It looks pretty fake, but it's still a pretty epic fight. Don't watch it if you plan on seeing the movie.

My Sister

I told my sis I was going to post this. I had forgotten originally, but thankfully I never took the pic off my phone. This is what happens when the power goes out for 2 hours straight and the whole family doesn't have the internet. They are forced to spend time with each other, and apparently, go crazy.

What was actually happening was that we were all trying to scare each other since the power was out and the whole house was pitch black. That then somehow lead to my mom talking Bri into making funny faces, while me and my brother took pictures.

My New Toy!!

Before I get to into my story, you know how many NSFW (not safe for work) images I had to scrounge through to find the one above! I wanted a pic of an anime girl unwrapping a gift.. neko style like the one above would have been really cool. Instead of finding anything remotely related to what I wanted, I pulled up a ton load of hentai and wannabe hentai images.

So back to my story, I bought a new toy recently! :) I have bought a EEE PC pearl, or the EEE PC 10005HAB. Some of my computer friends a probably shaking their heads at me for buying it, as it will never compare to the computing power of a standard laptop. Well I'm a big gadget nerd, and have always wanted an EEEPC since they were first introduced. It is the best netbook to tote around to and from classes. It is also the ultimate network pen. testing machine.

The netbook doesn't have much power to it, and mostly standard ports. It has a Intel Atom processor, dual core 1.6 Ghz. That is not fast at all, by no means. For video, it comes with the integrated intel GMA 950. The netbook comes with 1gig of ram, upgradeable to a max of 2 gigs (which I plan to do very, very, very, As for ports, it comes with: 3 USB, 1 VGA, 1 power, a headphone, and a mic port.

I'm tempted to overclock the processor to 2Ghz, and also overclock the GMA 950. Thankfully there are tools out there that will let me do this from inside the OS, without having to boot to a prompt from the bios. My only fear, whenever you overclock anything, you will produce more heat, use up a lot more battery life, and possibly reduce the life of the hardware. This is why nothing has been overclocked yet, because I want to see how the netbook performs where it's at right now. I'm pretty minimalist when it comes to computers, and I don't plan to do any gaming on the netbook. That's what my laptop is for. But I do plan to install diablo or starcraft, which aren't very demanding. I also plan to watch my anime while on the go, off of it. These things, and a few others, will determine if I overclock it in the end.

If you are in the market for a netbook, and looking for something cheap and highly portable, then I'd recommend this netbook. It has yet to give me any problems, and worked right out of the box. Even Ubuntu 9.1 installed easy with no need to download new drivers.

here are some images of my netbook

This is my desktop. I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 which offers a better 3D graphical interface than what I'm using, but as I've state, I'm pretty minimalistic. And yes that is a wallpaper from that 90's movie, Hackers with angelina jolie. You may also notice the madwifi folder on the desktop. That is the driver that will enable my wireless card to sniff wireless networks. It was only after I had installed the driver by compiling it from source code, that I learned a much easier way to download and install it automatically.

Here is the main login screen for Ubuntu 9.1. The netbook came with windows xp, which is the first thing I took off. If I'm going to learn linux, I have to force myself to learn linux. The keyboard is very comfortable. I can easily type a lot without my fingers getting tired.

Here is the case of the netbook. The pearl is a big improvement over the other pc's thanks to the matte finish. Other EEE PC's show fingerprints really easily, and look dirty after only 1 day.
