famous last words, indeed [May. 9th, 2016|10:07 am]

[Mood |worriedconcerned]

Welp, not long after that last post, the machine stopped booting at all. :( :p Safe mode got it working again for the evening, long enough to back up everything, and booting to "last known good configuration" got it up again and, for the moment at least, stable... but I haven't tried stressing it yet. No gaming. Will it hold up, or BSOD again?

At least I have the backups, and a restore point made (though it may be built on sand). And Travis is coming over in a couple of hours with a Win 7 disc, though the need is no longer as urgent, knock on everything. (I may still have to do a repair, or worse. I just don't know.)

From a "bad food" thread (as in "delicious but unhealthy"):

A: (someone posts a thing)

B: A swift 1850 calories.

C: Nah, a Swift 1850 calories looks more like this:




I'm with the next commenter:
"i laughed far, far too much at this."

Absolutely true [Apr. 13th, 2016|10:55 pm]

From the comments on this PS 238 page:

"Long story short, they’re on fairy tale rules now. And the polite young lady who pays careful attention to what the mystical beings say is the most dangerous person around."

Hazards of a one-size-fits-all storyline [Apr. 5th, 2016|09:35 am]

[Mood |sillysilly]

Today's SW:TOR update brings early-access subscribers, among other things, the Force-attuned minigun.

"Not as clumsy or random as a" BRRRRRRRRRRRRRT "elegant weapon for a more civilized age."

(This is what happens when the story has the PC forging a new Infinity+1 weapon, even when they aren't a Jedi or Sith.)

Also in this update: characters can now have spaces in their names. I expect to see my first Darth Darth Darth Darth within minutes of logging in.

why are there so many / songs about Jedi [Mar. 9th, 2016|05:19 pm]

[Mood |sillysilly]

And now for the mental image which preceded that little rant:

I imagined Luke and Artoo coming across the other little green muppet in the swamp, sitting on a log and strumming his banjo and dispensing simple folk wisdom (without the odd speech pattern).

Maybe it would have turned out better for the kid; maybe not. "Difficult to say. Always in motion is the future."

the Jedi Order cannot fail, it can only be failed [Mar. 9th, 2016|04:53 pm]

[Mood |cynicalcynical]

"Our apprentices keep falling to the Dark! We must work even harder at teaching them to repress and deny and ignore their feelings, discard their attachments, and double down on pressuring them to be perfect selfless beings!"

"... it's happened again? How could we not have foreseen this?!"
