Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to me...

Ho boy today started just swell. After a great evening last night with [livejournal.com profile] aayrick getting my Horizons CD-key added to the account, putting more RAM in his machine, and both of us getting online and bashing monsters together in Istaria, having great fun, I go to bed and get up this morning and my PC BSODs on me, and refuses to boot. Try it again, same thing. Try it a third time, same thing.

Krist on a stick. I did not need this. [livejournal.com profile] shaunpup, wanna work some healing magic on this thing this weekend maybe?

I get no first break today. AND my boss is on me because I messed something up. AND the spaceheater broke, so I am TOTALLY freezing at work today...

I sure hope today looks up.

EDIT: Aw Sapph - you rock! *HUGZ* Thank you! )

AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF! Sprint decides to take a dump and the 'net connection at work goes down for almost the whole work day so I can't even talk to folks like I was able to before.

Oh, what a miserable day... *GRAR!*

No improvement. I was so tired by the time I got home that I wasn't up to even taking up Tanan's offer of going out to dinner, and fiddled with the PC for a while as I chatted with [livejournal.com profile] shaunpup over ICQ trying to fix it, came to the conclusion that my brand new ATI video card from a few months ago has gone the way of all the earth, and must be replaced. That's an unanticipated $100 expense, and 3 days (minimum) of downtime for the machine. I am heading to bed early out of frustration.

It's possible that Horizons burned the video card out. I played the game fine for hours on this machine with [livejournal.com profile] aayrick last night, switched for the larger monitor so I could use higher resolution, and that's when it started to lock up and BSOD. Put the smaller monitor back on it - lower resolution - and it kept doing it. After that it seems to be have been toasted, because even turning the resolution back down didn't help. The ATI Radeon drivers are up to date, and there are countless forums talking about people having trouble with ATI Radeon video cards and the game. At least that's the best I can figure. Shaun will have to take a look himself on sunday when he comes down. I'm really tight on money so this will have to be a really cheap new video card.

Bed now. Maybe tomorrow my luck will improve. I can only hope. *sob*
