One Fine Day inside a Silicon Chip

E-mail Print PDF

As I heard the release of Far Cry 3 into the video game stores, I am curious of the predecessor, Far Cry 2. Soon enough, I got a copy of it, and installed it on my laptop. Shortly after that, I become absorbed in a game which makes me think and contemplate long after I finished an immersive gaming session. This game is a piece of art which continues to amaze many fans of open-world first person shooters for a few years since its release in 2008.

Previously, I’ve played Crysis and Crysis Warhead, two of the most realistic first-person shooter (FPS) game in the last 5 years. In both of the very first installments of Crysis, I can see the immense amount of detailed simulation of physics and particle dynamics. I enjoyed my hours in that virtual world, especially after I wiped out all the enemies stealthily, and leave the buildings, vehicles, and other destructible objects intact whenever possible. I will then play around with the objects, messes things up, throwing hand grenades to wooden huts to see them explode and shatter into pieces, planting mines to the road and then running a jeep at a high speed over the mines and experience the thrill of flipping in the air for several times before crashing and burn. Or sometimes as simple as lobbing hand grenades into the sky to knock down the birds… Yes, it was a fine day there in the simulated tropical world, where I mess things up and set everything on fire.

Donating CPU Power to Humanity

E-mail Print PDF

For you who have never heard about Folding@Home, it's a scientific project using distributed computing concept, started by Vijay Pande, a researcher at Wisconsin University. The purpose of this project is “to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases”. Basically, you will need to install a client software that will pull some data to be worked on (called work-units) from a server, and starts molecular-dynamics simulation on your machine. Once the work-unit is completed, the resulting data will be sent back to the server. The processed data will then be used by the researchers.

Protein Molecule  Model

The list of scientific papers using data from Folding@Home can be found in this link in Wikipedia. You don't have to worry that the processing will interfere your real work, because the engine will work as a low priority task which yields CPU time when the higher priority tasks needs it, therefore your main programs that runs in the foreground will not be affected at all.

Reviving A Relic from the Dawn of 32-bit Microprocessor Era - Part 1: The Salvage

E-mail Print PDF

I found myself staring at my first PC, a dusty yellowish box that served me well when I was a teenager, helped me a lot on my school projects. I planned to revive this relic, and bring it to Jakarta, and make a good use of it. I quickly pulled it from its resting place for many years, and cleaned it from the dust. A house lizard jumped out when I opened the casing, as well as numerous insects that lived between the electronic boards.

Within a few minutes, I have completely disassembled it (except for its internal power supply unit), detached its main board, video card, a legacy I/O controller card, one 5.25 inch floppy drive, and one 3.5 inch floppy drive. It's a computer from the era when 32-bit processors starts to dominate the world. It has an AMD Am386DX-40 CPU running at 40 MHz clock speed, it has many banks of SDRAM chips, totaling 8 MB. The VGA card has 512 KB of RAM. The CPU is permanently soldered right on the board, instead of sitting on a socket. Since there is no cooling mechanism surrounding it, I can easily read the text printed on its chip. It says “Microsoft Windows Compatible”, below an old Windows logo imprinted on the face of the chip.

Am368DX-40 CPU embedded on the mainboard


It must have been an impressive machine when it was first purchased in March 1994. I can recall my awe when I first operated it sometime in 1997, my auntie bought it used for me. It was really a treat to the eyes of a person who has never used any GUI-based systems before. I still remember the thrill of clicking those little icons on Windows 3.1 with a funny thing called mouse....
