Dead Liquid Cooling

So I woke up today and turned on my desktop… 2x120mm AIO fans unusually running at full speed. I check speed and fan and my processor was burning. So I turned off my desktop and quickly checked inside bios and found out that the pump was not reporting any activity. I switched the pump fan header to a different fan header on my system board and turned on the machine. Result = SAME

My tower before the pump died

So I took out the OEM Intel fan that I had and quickly installed it hoping I would get the same result (hoping that the AIO pump was not dead) but viola the system temps were back to normal. So as it stand my Deepcool gamerstorm 240MM AIO pump is dead. The fans run but the stupid pump is dead.

Oh well the system is now back up to normal using the original OEM Intel fan. I am thinking of keeping it this way for a bit since I am due for a system upgrade soon and I only usually do light gaming on the desktop anyways (Dota 2) and thats about it. I mostly use it for torrents and watching movies on my TV.

Damn deepcool it’s so sad to see it die but you can’t have it all. I’m going to include it on the desktop set that I am selling (Intel E7400, 4gb corsair ram, Asus P5Q SE Plus, Coolermaster PSU and a broken 9800 GT) Hope someone buys it and I am going to use the money to buy WD NAS Reds.

RIP Deepcool

Flat File CMS

Flat file webpages are fast. Been into this open source cms things for sometime now (like since the first wordpress version came out) and all of my time with this has been spent with CMS + database which is not too bad if you have nice hosting and you don’t get too much traffic.

Some of the issue I have encountered with dynamic database driven cms are

  • you need a fast server & web host if you will run a lot of plugins
  • the more users, the more database calls hence slowing site performance if you are not on a fast server
  • needing fast server/web host means needing to pay more

Above are just few things I can think of. Don’t get me wrong but I am for dynamic websites that is if you need one. I have ran an SMF Forum site for years before and I know the pains when you have large number of users specially forum websites. I had to move from shared hosting to reseller hosing to VPS and finally to a dedicated unmanaged server within 1 year because the website growth went fast.

Recently I got into static webpage generators such as Jekyll but it was too technical for me. I am not that technical when it comes to back-end coding and shit hahaha.

A few months back I remember reading about this flat file cms (i.e. grav, kirby, pico, automad, nibbleblog etc). So a few days ago I went on to Mr. Google and searched for flat file cms. I read about bludit from a reddit link I found and tried it out. So far so good for this CMS at least for this personal site that I am running.

Plugin availability is enough for me atleast for what I need but I’d like to see more of the things I got used to wordpress but I ain’t complaining bitches

So for the first few runs at bludit, it seems all good for now.
