Das Keyboard

Das Keyboard – A keyboard with no inscription on the keys. In other words, you won’t see any words printed on those keys on the board. :)

One of the benefits from using this keyboard is to type to 100% faster in a few weeks! LoL…

Since there is no key to look at when typing, your brain will quickly adapt and memorize the key positions and you will find yourself typing a lot faster with more accuracy in no time. It is amazing how slow typers almost double their speed and quick typers become blazing fast!

Das Keyboard is built from premium keyswitch technology that rivals or surpasses the best available keyboard today. The keys are factory tested to withstand over 30 million keystrokes, providing the ultimate in comfort and durability. The keyboard also features three Windows application keys.

The selling price for Das Keyboard is USD$75.95. :D

Athlon X2 vs Pentium D : Realtime Stress Test

Friday 10 June 2005 @ 12:50 am

We’ve been debating how good are those newly released chips, Athlon X2 from AMD and Pentium D 840 EE from Intel.

The following 2 tests are stress tests performed by TomsHardware running on Athlon 64 X2 4800 and Pentium D 840 EE, to test the stability and performance.

Stress Test On Athlon X2 4800

Stress Test On Pentium D 840 EE

By the time I write this article (12:36:00 PM EST), Athlon X2 4800 has been running for 46 h and 14 min with 0 reboot !! Meanwhile, Pentium D 840 EE has been running for 24 h and 1 min and rebooted 3 times.

Besides, as you can see, the temperature of Athlon X2 4800 is fluctuating between 50 – 55 Celcius, whereas Pentium D 840 EE is fluctuating between 60 – 70 Celcius. I have a feeling the frequency of reboot might due to the heat generated by the processor. 50 – 55 Celcius for a Dual Core processor is kind of amazing because even I am using a single core AMD64 very often my CPU temperature stays around 55 Celcius using the heatsink and cooling fan procided by the manufacturer.

HmMMm… Is the extra money for AMD Athlon X2 well worth the stability and low heat? You decide. :)

The sword, which Mr Qui had lent to Mr Zhu, was won in the popular online game Legend of Mir 3.

In this case, Mr Zhu did offer to hand over the cash but Mr Qui lost patience and stabbed him with “great force” according to media reports.
