I think I’ve got most things back in place. I imported my bookmarks from my old windows computer, so if I haven’t stopped by your blog for a bit, give me a ping. I probably lost the link somewhere. I still need to recover about 40-60GB worth of crap from my old drive, but I want to get some sort of external hard drive enclosure. I’m intending to use the old IDE drive as my mp3 library.
It used to take an hour to compile a minute’s worth of music with csound on my old computer. New one? About five minutes if I’m doing something with lots of voices or a complicated texture. I don’t think csound 5 is optimized for dual core processors yet, but it’s nice that I can do other things while it crunches. Friday night I was watching “Austin Powers” while compiling csound, just because I could. (My old computer would come crashing to a halt if I did that, since both activities are so CPU-intensive.)
Yesterday I tested my computer for burn in by playing “Lord of the Rings Online.” It’s pretty nifty. I’m on Landroval, where a lot of the people I used to play “Dark Age of Camelot” are.
