Some thoughts on F1 and Michael Schumacher

First of all I think I'm not a hardcore Michael Schumacher fan, I mean, I don't have Schumacher related stuff at home.. caps, autographs etc as a matter of fact I don't have any F1 material at home, so I don't consider myself as a hardcore F1 fan either, but I like Michael Schumacher and especially "since the internet" I can download the BBC coverage to watch their interviews with him. It's a shame really that these media stuff is so restrictive in the world.. I mean many people would even pay for some stuff but it's simply not available outside a specific region. Here (Romania) even iTunes doesn't provide the full services, only the app store available here, no music, no shows nothing else.

Finally, ASUS releases the AMD Fusion boards too

Here's the announcement on ASUS News site.
Microsite here with comparisons.
ASUS got 6 of them:

F1A75-M LE

- the F1A75-V EVO seems to be the high-end one.
- the F1A75 doesnt have video-output so you'll need a dedicated card for this.

Wonder what will cost these, strangely the 990fx boards doesnt effected much the 890fx boards' price.

Status Update

Right, I haven't written in a while.. not that I wrote things about myself, so this will be a first.
Why was this big gap between this and the previous post? well a couple of things:

-I wasn't in mood a.k.a I'm lazy
-I was working from 25th October last year (this is the official reason) (three shifts)

I'm saying "was" because they haven't extended my contract last month.. so I'm currently jobless..
Unfortunately in this area lacks many job opportunities... so it will be quiet hard to find one.. and without experience no one hires.. I thought about a job abroad but you need some money to travel and for stuff.. of course I haven't got no savings.. because the salary was quite bad (really bad, still I hope it was more than in china for the "working" people).
