Board’s (The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly)

I have a few things board related to post about, some good, and some bad, and no two about the same type of boards.

1. First off, and worst off; I bought a new graphics card, ATI Radeon X1300 All In Wonder. It is an awesome card. It supports 2 monitors has video in and out as well as an fm tuner. I pulled out my computer, (a task in itself) and go to put the card in, it doesn’t fit, but not by much… so I helped it along a bit. Bad idea, I fried my motherboard, now my computer won’t do anything besides power up the power supply. So that’s great, well at least now I can probably get a faster processor, which I have kind of wanted to do for a while. I just would have preferred doing it on my on schedule, and not be forced.

2. The second bit of board related news is “Snowboard News.” It’s September, the leaves have started falling, ski club meetings are starting up, all signs that it is time to start considering the new season. Most of you are probably saying it’s too early, but believe it or not the ski season actually takes a good bit of planning on my behalf in order to make it a good, fun year, (which something I overlooked last year.) Since I put so many days on my equipment each year I need to get new equipment often. I didn’t get new stuff last year and my riding reflected it.
So I have started the process of shopping for a board and now the big question is do I go with Burton, or Atomic? A little background: Burton is a really good, but a really big company, and it is hard to be noticed as a good candidate to represent their company (which produces schwag.) Atomic is smaller, and I have a history repping for them, but they kinda screwed me last year and I didn’t do any work for them. Is it time for me to make the move back to Burton?
Let me know your thoughts.

As for updates to this website, there is a massive picture/gallery redesign in beta for right now, and It would have probably been released this week, but then came my computer issues. If you would like a preview then email me, and I will send you a link.
