Google Webmaster Tools doesn't accept new Sitemap - What's the problem?

I'm currently using Google Webmaster Tools (see my post on Google Tools) for tasks like discovering queries that lead to my website, links to my site and submitting sitemaps to get better indexed by Google.

The thing is recently the last couple sitemaps i submitted are on a pending state without giving more information. I think this is wrong because in the past i clearly remember that when submitting a sitemap i got the message that i had submitted a certain number of pages, which was the same as in the test sitemap option(and got a date as well), but now the submitted pages number doesn't change.

The same sitemap submitted to Bing Webmaster Tools returns no problems and the right number of pages is submitted. Is there anyone out there having the same problem? Could it be that Google is making an update or something like that?

Gaming on integrated graphics - my Radeon HD 4250 experience

Two years ago, i built my own system with a quad-core AMD Athlon II X4 645, a motherboard based on the AMD 880G Chipset, 4 GB of RAM, a 500 GB HDD and an Nvidia 8800 GTS 320 MB graphics card.

The card was somewhat old for the system, as it was second hand (gift from a relative). So, after some months playing top and demanding games like Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim and Racedriver:GRID the card died. Well, i remember being in front of a black screen and after restarting there were artifacts everywhere. Then, there was no signal from the card to the monitor and much the same situation appeared when i connected the card to my other system.
Searching online, i found guides suggesting putting the card in the oven (!!!), a solution i never tried. Nevertheless, to my surprise, baking the graphics card seemed to work for many (brave) users.
But, let's get to the point of this article. After the card died on me, i immediately decided to turn to the integrated graphics and give it a shot with some games. My system has an integrated Radeon HD 4250, which i thought would be capable of some light gaming. I've never been so wrong. Just kidding. Of course, i never tried to even start Skyrim but i managed to play GRID in low settings. The integrated graphics didn't struggle with Full Hd video playback and old and not demanding games like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Pro Evolution Soccer. Nowadays, i play a lot of League Of Legends and i get 9-23 fps in-game. Well, this is obviously a very low number but i find the game running smoothly so it doesn't bother me.
To sum up, i'm really pleased by the performance of the Radeon HD 4250. It's a reasonable solution till i get a new GPU.

Thank you for reading, comment below and have fun.
