Music for Sunday night #81

Just a few hours ago, I was listening to music during the way back home. Then I played the famous songs "For Whom the Bells Tolls" and  "Fade to Black" by Metallica. After they finished I was very disappointed with the band because I really felt the guitars, the distortions, drums..., everything very weak and soft, not heavy! What was happening? I didn't know. Maybe it was the sound quality of the CD, because it was made lots of years ago, and apart from this, I had been listening to a brand new high quality CD just before.

Anyway, I tried to solve it, so I played the last Metallica's album, "Death Magnetic", and, oh yeah, then things was sounding great. For a moment, I was disappointed with the band... Here is the song which threw light upon the issue. Enjoy.

I'm 8

As I said to you I got a new laptop. It is common that a machine comes with Windows 7 home basic or premium pre-loaded. Those versions were designed for home non professional use, so I wanted to upgrade it to Ultimate version. I spent some days asking in forums how to do it, because new laptops are more difficult things to manage with than PCs. 

For example, there is a partition in the hard drive called "Recovery" that allows you to format your laptop or restore to factory default settings, and it is very delicate. So a clean installation was a difficult way. Then, I decided I would update from the system and some computer things more.

When I received my laptop, it came with Windows 8 inside.

Well. Some holiday hours lost...

It looked a good version to try. I mean, it didn't look basic or for beginners, and well! It is the last trend in computer operative systems! So I tried it.

I've only one day in migrate from my old Windows XP with some incompatible programs to W8. That is because my new toy is quick. Very quick.

It is amazing how stupid I felt the first time I started W8, but it is more incredible how fast I have learned to use it very fluently. I like this system. I'll keep using it. So, now, I am officially 8.  

The machine

The other day, for first time in lots of years, I bought a laptop (I'm writing with it). I was all the Christmas holidays searching for the best offer until late in the morning. First of all, I wanted to buy an Asus laptop. It was very very good, and it was very affordable. However, due to its powerful graphic card (which was mid range), the machine became too hot and restarted. It wasn't a common fail to all the units, but lots of customers suffered from it.

So, after thinking a lot, I got rid of the idea of the great deal Asus laptop and I went for another brand.
I chose Toshiba. Of course, I had to pay quite a lot more, but I considered it was worthwhile.

Now, I have it in my hands. I got a beautiful and powerful Toshiba Satellite laptop which is working fine for the time being. What I am doing know is testing if the battery works correctly and I already have more than one hour and a half to play.

Maybe the battery is not very good. According to the test it life is over 3 hours and a half, not too much, and in fact, it is physically small. The adapter is the opposite, because it weighs near three tones and is bigger than two school buses.

For now, I am happy with it. I hope it never breaks.
