Wow...2.53! Thought 2.51 would be the last FW... Guess Cowon hasn't abandoned us S9 owners yet.
"What kind of gaming rig?"
It's a LAN Party oriented rig. I even have the LAN bag+carrying case for the rig (though it's bigger so it's loose).
Here's the specs:
Zotac G31MAT-B-E mATX LGA775 Mobo
C2D E8400 @ 3.0 GHz
Cooler Master Vortex 752 CPU Cooler
2 GB DDR2 800 RAM
512 MB PNY GeForce 9600GT
Chaintech AV700 Sound Card (uses ENVY 24HT chipset)
250 GB WD Caviar Blue HDD (SATA II)
500W Hec R500 Raptor PSU
2 x 92mm Vantec "Stealth" series case fans (super quiet @ ~1700 rpm)
Vantec 5.25" Fan Controller (5+ years old)
Linkworld 727-02 Black mATX Case
I also have:
Rosewill headset (dirt cheap @ $5
Gigabyte GM-M6800 Optical Gaming Mouse
Kensington Pro Fit USB Keyboard (very silent keys)
And I put in Windows 7. So far was hoping to attend two LAN events around Chicago here this week, but the event organizers still haven't said a word about event details (like place and time), so I'm waiting on their slowpoke cupcakes.
"You play on consoles?"
No, unless you count XBOX 1 and a old PS1. I don't go online with any of them. Wii's still in the picture for the future, just don't know when.
"How was the concert?"
It was pretty good. Wish they had used better speakers because when Jon started on his wails, he'd be hitting high octaves that the speakers would just cut off so you end up with a shrill whine instead of the clarity of his high-note voice. He went through quite a few songs (think 10-12) in the hour and half he was on stage. I wanna say 1/3 was from his first CD, the rest was a mix between his 2nd CD and beyond. He even did the song "Party in the USA" and the track he wrote "for himself but gave to Ricky Martin instead" (still think that was a fail. -.-).
Other than that, wish the 6-7 assholes behind were never born. They kept spilling their alcoholic drinks all over my legs and feet, shoving me in the back because they're having a mini-party and texting people while pretending to listen to Jon Secada on stage. >:|
Granted, it was a free general admission concert during a festival, but still...pricks.
I hope you like the clp+. Ive heard its very convenient. What kind of gaming rig? You play on consoles? How was the concert?
We have up to 2.53 Firmware, and its MUCH faster than before.
dnw released a few projects (he's now a moderator 'nw) I'll link you to the files which I use.
I haven't got any new toys, but I did get an xbox for my birthday (June24) and I now have a job
I've been doing okay. And before you ask, no I haven't done anything with my proposed UI. I'm thinking of scrapping the design and starting anew considering the two/three new PMPs Cowon has released in the last few months (J3, V5, i9). Just need to get out of my lazy spell and actually play around with the UI code.
Otherwise, been hanging with friends, built a new LAN gaming rig partly from leftover parts from my recent upgrade. Just ordered a Clip+ that I intend to use for the gym and to take on trips so I don't scratch and bang my D2 or S9. Oh and just got back from a free Jon Secada concert in uptown Chicago.
I'm still using what must now be a old version of Aero Ultimate G2 v1.00 Beta 2 with FW 2.50. What's the latest now FW 2.52? Any other major UI come out for the S9? Or has mostly everyone abandoned the S9 for the J3?
How about you? Get any new toys (like maybe the V5 or the J3)? How's your summer?
