Long Time, No See

Geez, it’s been a while since I’ve posted.  I’m sure you’re assuming it’s because my life is so glamorous and action-packed that I haven’t the time to get online regularly and, now that I’m finally here, will have lots of exciting stories with which to regale you.

Silly you.

Work is fine.  Health is fine.  There’s your update.  I’ve spent the past week or so on a quest for a better graphics card in order to play a few games too advanced for my current one.  For most people this would be a pretty achievable quest, so, naturally, I had problems with it.  It would seem that my computer was designed specifically so that the only graphics cards that would fit into the slot (a PCI Express X1, not x16 slot for any curious computer geeks out there) would not enhance my graphics enough to warrant the switch.  I found this out after purchasing (and returning) 2 such cards.  Unwilling to admit to defeat, I bought a whole new computer.  (And for only twice what the graphic card would have run me.)

And after all this, the game still doesn’t work.

Just kidding.  It works.  But that would have been a perfect ending to the story, don’t you think?

Now I just have to re-install everything in the world.  Download time remaining: 344:01:23:47

  1. You bought a whole new computer? What kind of game is this?

    I have to admit that I assumed your fancy new job and fancy new apartment were keeping you too busy to post and that made me happy and sad at the same time. Glad to hear that you’re doing well.

    • There were a couple games I was having problems with: Neverwinter Nights 2, Oblivion, and The Sims 2.

      I don’t post simply because there is nothing to post. The most eventful thing of this past week was the day I couldn’t eat all of a peanut butter cookie I got from work, wrapped it napkins and put it in my bag, and then came home to discover I did a crappy wrapping job. There are now peanut butter cookie crumbs everywhere in my shoulder bag.

      Hmm, on second thought, that does sound like something I’d post about.

      Oh well.

What do you think?
