Intel i5 2500 iGPU Crop

Intel i5 2500 iGPU Crop

This was from a full die composite I tried to do but it failed miserably. It is the same one that the single core crop came from. Since people seem to have really liked that one, here is the igpu from that same session. I was focusing my dust removal attention towards the cores, so I did not clean this as much as I would have liked.

Intel i5 2500 – ring light (98% quality JPG)

Intel i5 2500 - ring light (98% quality JPG)

This is the same i5 2500 I took pictures of previously, but I have improved my techniques since then. This is the first time I am using a "ring light" that attaches itself to the microscope objective. This light does not have PWM and so it does not cause any dark banding on the edges.

I also put much more effort into cleaning any dirt off of it this time, which is a lot harder than you might think. I cannot touch the die because at this magnification the microscopic drops of oil and flakes from my skin would be present, and any cleaning cloth I use must not leave any debris behind (bottom left corner for instance). So cleaning this involved me wearing gloves and using a touchscreen cleaning solution called WHOOSH which also happens to do a very good job at removing fingerprints and repelling dust! The solution was removed and rubbed in with a paper towel gently. I then used a toothpick to remove any visible pieces of debris (The particle in the bottom left showed up mid shot, I cannot move the die when at this stage so I had to let it go.)

This is a composite of 168 images taken by a pixel 2XL from a microscope at 40X. The images had 65% overlap and were stitched together in Microsoft Image Composite Editor using the structured panorama mode.

Resurecting the old box 1

Resurecting the old box 1

There was an old Nec powermate lying in the dust hosting that piece of xxxx aka Windows XP. Then came an idea, may be a bad one. Why not installing FreeBSD 11 on this old hardware (1Gb ram / 30Gb hdd / no dedicated graphics / Intel Celeron 2.4GHz)

This is my old rig. As you can see it’s falling apart to some extent.

The side of the case is off because the system is (unfortunately) cooler that way and the top of the case had to be rotated as the power supply would not fit with the exhaust fan.

Also, this computer attracts dust like no tomorrow. It’s impossible to keep the area nearby clean.

Mac the Knife

Mac the Knife

Day 121 of 365: "Mac the Knife"

I’ve been talking about this computer a lot this week. This is my six year old MacBook. I had to bring it in to get fixed last week and had a few issues with the repair along the way. Although this computer is no longer my main computer I use for photo editing, it is still my favorite. I actually let the problems I had with this repair effect my mood this week.

For some people, I know this sounds silly. "It’s just a computer," they would say. But to me, this computer means a lot. I’ve edited thousands of photos on it; created and editing hundreds of videos; it’s been my gateway to social media: Flickr, Yahoo Instant Messenger, MySpace, iSpQ, YouTube, Stickam, Skype, Twitter, Facebook, and 500px (and a few others along the way that never stuck).

The social media aspect of it always tied in with the art side of things for me. Through the creative tools on this machine, as well as devices like a built-in webcam, it became the gateway to meet people from all around the world as well as enhance my local social circle and reconnect family and old friends.

And it all started on this machine.

Other computers came before it. Others will come after it. But this one hit at the exact moment when art and social networking collided for me and I can’t imagine my life any other way.

So I guess it’s okay that I was a little concerned when I thought it was time to replace this computer.

And with today marking the 1/3 way point for my 365 project, instead of doing another portrait of myself, I decided to post this image of one of the many tools I’ve been using to make this project a reality.

NZXT 410 Spring Cleaning

NZXT 410 Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning again but the its the main gaming PC. This dusting was a bit easier because this rig doesn’t run 24 hours a day like my server PC.

I wish this desktop had a filter in every intake or hole. I have purchased magnetic filters for the side and bottom intakes, but the front does not have any filters. It’s just a grill that intakes a bit of dust.

The Temps are pretty low with the system never going over 95 degrees Fahrenheit. The NZXT 410 is overall a great case for beginners like myself.
