RAM alama ding dong

Installed the 2GB of RAM I ordered from the Crucial website today and wow, it feels strange having so much RAM, I don’t know what to do!

I’ve been able to play a few games better due to having surplus RAM, such as Football Manager 2008, I was just able to play it before with just the 512MB I had (-64MB on board graphics -200MB system resources = 246MB of usable RAM), but now I don’t have to worry.

I tried Joost and couldn’t see the point in it, there was nothing I wanted to watch on there, so that got uninstalled after an hour (I tried watching a bit of [Adult Swim], but there isn’t much on there). I tried the Channel 4 4oD (4 on Demand) thing, that’s not bad, I like the way it can stream, unlike the BBC iPlayer which isn’t really a player at all.

I was able to catch up with Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares of which I’d missed the first 2 episodes of the new series, but there doesn’t seem to be any previous episodes of My Name Is Earl on 4oD. The BBC iPlayer is mainly just a content manager since you basically download the programs onto your computer, after a bit of messing around, I streamed the episode of QI that I’d downloaded through the Xbox 360. Not bad quality at 720p, but it’s not as good a service as 4oD…
