http://www.asiacarrera.com/picture/neonside.jpg

lemme show off some more pics of my new neon 1.4ghz Athlon buttkicker! (envision me opening my virtual wallet, and 10,000 baby pics of my computers unfold down to the floor, hehe!!) .... The clear case, mobo, & soundcard were a gift from my pal Steve over at Hypothermia hardware, but the case is custom made, and comes with NOTHING inside, no racks for drives or a power box, not even an on/off switch! So I made some trips to Fry's for that stuff, and I got the neon lights and blue wire covers at PepBoys auto parts. The lights are meant to be used in a car, and they plug into a cigarette lighter, so I had to cut off the adapters and wire them up to the computer by hand. But geekiest of all - see that little remote switch next to the mouse? I can turn my computer on and off from anywhere in the room - which serves no real practical purpose, but it impresses the socks off people, and it came in handy as a special effect when we used the computer in my latest movie! OK, that's all fer now, catch ya later! Source. (http://www.asiacarrera.com/bulletin.html)

Impressive eh? Don't ask me what I was doing there. :p

Another thing, in one of her UT websites (http://www.megabitchgoddess.com/), she has the correct link to nalicity (i.e. nalicity.beyondunreal.com). She's quite up to date with the UT scene. :eek:

Okay, the truth is that CHRYSt is actually Asia.

On a side note, Asia Carrera is a computer geek's dream. She's smart, funny and damn fine looking. And, whether you agree with her profession or not, you have to admit she's very much in control of her life.

Alright, I'll stop with my personal Asia Carrera obsession now. ;)

I believe it has it's own plug, and you put it on your powerbar, I saw one of those keyboards that has neon in it and that's how it worked.

Yes, the self professed queen of porn does know what's up on the UT scene. She has made several...skins for UT.

I've never seen a post by her but I bet she's been here before, and I have seen her in chat on the old ETG server in channel #utgames, where she can be found frequently.

She knows we're here, she just probably didn't find any interest in a forum.

Short side note, I distinctly remember that the first day that I ran into the PU page, was the day that they added a feature about asia...something about her new skin or something. It was the end of that week, when I first came into chat. That was the day we started to have fragPU every week.

found this on her page:
Hobbies and Interests - I haven't had much "free time" in years, and I pull all-nighters about twice a week just to stay on top of things, because my pornstar career and my buttkicking website are both fulltime jobs that I refuse to let anyone else handle for me. But whenever I can sneak some time to myself, I like honing my skills in Photoshop, upgrading and tweaking my computer hardware, and having friends over for 'Unreal Tournament' fragfests on my LAN.

thats one LAN id like to be invited to:D

Ok, when I first saw that crooked floppy my impression of the system was that the the HD, CD and floppy drive were floating in some kind of clear gel suspension/coolant substance. Then I saw the other view of it, and the case by itself.

To answer Liquid_Sin: Yes, Asia really is a geek, and an adorable one at that. I will wager my testicles on it. In addition to some of the other URLs posted, I have some video interviews of her at http://www.asiacarrera.com/me2 .


To TWD and his post "... and I have seen her in chat on the old ETG server in channel #utgames, where she can be found frequently.": To the best of my knowledge, Asia doesn't chat at IRC servers. Her chats are pretty much limited to the java-based chat room on her site. When free time becomes available, she'd rather be playing UT than chatting about it.

Someone gave me the URL to this thread, which I passed along to Asia. She did take a look and was flattered by the responses.

Well, liquid helium does have a temperature of around 4 K, as opposed to liquid nitrogen at 77 K. However, for cooling a radiant device, you want to absorb as much thermal energy as possible.

The enthalpy of vaporization for He is 0.083 kJ/mol. That is, one mol of He will absorb 83 joules of energy in transitioning from liquid to gas. Conversely, the value for N is 2.79 kJ/mol. So, liquid N can absorb nearly 33 times more energy for cooling purposes. While the cold gas (4 K for He, 77 K for N) can also contribute to cooling, the gas phase is not efficient for thermal conduction.

Thus, even though liquid He costs much more and is harder to physically handle, I contend that it offers no advantages for cooling over the cheaper liquid N solution.

Never going to happen, you've seen how sad and pathetic a large proportion of this posting population gets when they realise that someone posting is a woman, let alone if she posts her pic and happens to register high on the hard-on-metre. Hell TWD would probably request a picture of her standing one one foot holding up a piece of paper up a piece of paper saying "BuF rulez!" or some bollox like that (though I think another "3s is a seksi bi0tch" would be rather amusing).
You have to remember BBA that quite a lot of this board (yourself, myself and a few others excluded) don't get nookie regulary - if at all :D

Asia Carrera has enjoyed success in the adult entertainment industry, starring in a number of films and other projects. She has also made her way onto the gaming scene by being one of the few celebreties to make a big deal about gaming. Specifically, Asia enjoys a good game of Unreal Tournament, and has since the winter of last year. And from what we hear, she's not bad at all (no doubt because she visits PlanetUnreal regularly).
Sorry, I read the first page, then decided I better hurry my ass up and get to work, so I quickly did a search on ShackNews and came up with this article (http://www.3dactionplanet.com/features/interviews/asiacarrera/) from 3DActionPlanet.

I don't know if it's been settled that she really is into UT, but hopefully this will help. Oh yeah, FYI, Emilio Estevez (sp?) is heavy into Quake1-3 and Half-Life.

Hot chick? (No 0ffense, Asia) In order for a "chick" to be hot, she'd have to make me swoon at the site of her on any sunday morning before she gets out of bed.

ok, ok, i wasn't going to say anything, but since this message board seems to have the nicest, most tolerant posts i've ever seen regarding my status as a 'geek pornstar', i'll venture out of the shadows for a second to answer the mystery of the 'upside-down, angled floppy drive'. the clear case was sent to me as a gift from steve at http://hypothermia.gamershardware.com along with a mobo, chip, and RAM (not installed). the case was a bit of a mystery to me, because it was literally just an empty shell - no drive racks, no power button, no racks for power, nothin'. there was no manual, so i just took my best guess as to how to install everything. after a little trial and error, i got it all working to my satisfaction except for the damn floppy. i could not get the damn racks to line up with the pre-drilled case holes no way, no how, until i finally just flipped the thing upside down and at an angle as you saw. i probably just made some stupid newbie error, but it works, so i'll leave it for now. as a geek do-it-yerselfer from day one, my motto has always been "if you can't get it to work the proper way, just get it to work, period." so there you have it! :)

not much no, but that they do at all is the point, and if she has her rig on for long periods of time like i suspect it WILL add up. Most rigs have problems enough with heat buildup.

least you got it working useably.

last tme i ventured a case mod, i slipped while cutting out the fan hole in the panel, and had to weld a chunk back on. then, the vibrations of the fan broke the piece back off and (since there were only 2 fan mount spots) it fell down, bending the other mount spot, while the first chunk was teraing into the fan blades...

in he end i just cut out a larger hole and put a glass panel in. havent touched case modding since. (that and im too lazy to buy some new dremal blades)

Hot chick? (No 0ffense, Asia) I think not. Have you seen her without her pound of make-up on?

Actually, yes, there are plenty of pictures of her available without the makeup that her movies require of her. In fact, I'd really doubt it's her choice to put that much makeup on, but rather the fact that while asian stars are still popular, there's a not-so-subtle "americanizing" of their looks when possible by industry execs.

Yes, I've seen her without the makeup, and in fact I think she looks ten times hotter that way. Asian girls are gogeous beings, and I'd pay premium prices for a film with her in her natural looks.

The absolute hottest picture of Ms. Carrera for me is the following:

Asia is about 100 times cuter without makeup.

Her website says she grew up in the same general area of New Jersey that I come from. Nice to see another Jersey UT player who had the good sense to get the heck out of Jersey.

I was playing UT on a random server and it had all these custom maps. Some of them seemed to be dedicated to Asia. One had a picture of Asia at the end of a long hallway with her hand up beckoning me to go to her. I figured she was hinting that she had get a shield belt or amp or something for me. When I got to the end of the hallway, her picture changed to one of her laughing at me, and a trapdoor opened and dropped me into the lava. One of the funniest things I have ever seen in a UT map!

Here's a bit of gear that might interest you. I'll be getting one, because since I do music, I need something quiet to cool my CPU.

But I think it looks really beautiful:

deathmaker - the remote on/off comes with a device card that connects to the mobo's power and reset switches. the card also has a small antennae to receive the remote signals.

terminal - the lights generate virtually no heat. they run 24/7, and are always cool to the touch, just like the fluorescent tubes in your kitchen. i got the idea from the lighting guys on set - to spiff up a dull set quickly, they'd use fluorescent tubes covered in colored gels. the best thing about those 'flo-tubes' was that the set always stayed nice and cool, unlike the oven-baking effects of regular movie lights!!

snipeo - the monitor light wires were pulled to the back of the monitor, where the reds & blacks are soldered together so i only needed to make one connection instead of two. then i hooked up an adapter with a red/black wire to a power supply plug inside the case, and ran that wire out the back of the case, where i joined it with the monitor light wire(s). again, there may be an easier way, but this is what i came with, and it works, so... :P

qapete - aw shucks... i'm flattered! :D i liked the "plenty of balls" comment too, hehehe!!

boom - that was MY server you were playing on, and that particular map was called 'reticent'! :) i'll bet you probably fragged with me and/or my asst. dictator me2, since we play there 'most every night! (sad note - my UT server was with excite@home and went down for good two days ago - we're trying to relocate it now... *sob!*)


well, if i need dismantled and/or multiple computers for geek-level status, i guess my 5 athlons and 1 intel - all in permanently open cases - should qualify me. LOL! and if any of my babies starts overheating, i've got plenty of toys to remedy THAT problem too, hehehe...

im thinking of bumping mine up more. i found probally the best combination of computer parts i have ever run across.

Shuttle AK11, AMD 1.0 ghz t-bird 266fsb, and a hugh-jass head sink i got from newegg for 8 bucks. the ones that come in the AMD out-of-the-box CPUs.
unclocked it runs at between 78 and 82 degrees. i bumped it up to 1.125 and it runs now at around 98, but i also bumped my voodoo up with it, so that also bumped the system temp up a bit. im not overly worried because i have a nice healthy 5 fans in my system. i figure i can prolly run it at 110 and be fine. though if i had some better cooling i could prolly hit 1.3

Hey me2, thanks for passing the url to Asia.

Asia, that's a really cool case. Ever thought of making a business out of that casing? You can call it the "Asia Carrera Neon Case"! :D Maybe you can pre-assemble the ACNC with a power supply, a pair of neon lights and some pre-drilled holes and slots so that you can sell them. Since your free time is limited, perhaps your friend (the supplier of the case) could assemble the power supply and neon lights for you, and you could add some personal touches like the Asia Carrera label, autographed casing etc.

Both of you could share the profit. You can start by selling them though your site, in small volumes. Once your business picks up, you can sub-contract the assembly to a 3rd party company can just let the money flow in without doing anything. If you're really lucky, later on a large PC-related company may be interested to license your product (to use your name/label) and sell them on a mass scale. That's where the big money comes in - royalty.

Its just an idea. :o
