Saturday Morning Ramblet

First . . . something funny I heard while playing The Evil Twin (tm). The Evil Twin has been working his way through Triton and a few other places. It's wild having a level 16 necromancer still working on intro stuff. ahhh, the powerleveling. haha. Anyway, I was over by the Kraken this morning and heard a toon by the name of Micahel Deathcaster say this, "Nasty! It's like the Bush Gardens here." (It's an east coast amusement park known for being over crowed with huge lines for rides.)


Second . . . I'm typing from the laptop today. I'm so out of my element on the laptop. I don't have a lot of programs loaded on it and I actually have to use paint for graphics. yicky! Why am I on the laptop? I knew you were going to ask that. Well, I have this LCD monitor that's getting older. Ok, it's pretty old. And one day it just stopped working on me and had this steady blip that indicated it was in sleep mode. DUDE! I searched everywhere for what might be causing my monitor to stick in sleep mode. You'll never guess what the answer was. It wasn't anything to do with drivers or video cards or the computer itself. Apparently there is a capacitor inside the monitor that is infamous for going out. What happens then is that the monitor can't tell if it's warmed up enough to turn on. The solution?

Well, you have to get the back of the monitor warm enough that it bypasses the capacitor and, whiirrrrrr click, the monitor flips back on. It's the strangest fix I've ever seen and it works.

It is saturday morning though, and I don't want to wake anyone up because I have to hair dry the monitor.

Third . . . I hope everyone has a wonderful saturday! I'm off to IHOP for breakfast in a little bit. I'll report more later. I will say that it was fun dragging Sean around last night to fight the jade oni and a couple bosses in moo shu. He's begging to do a Malistaire run. haha. We'll see. Maybe tara will be up for that today too.

Happy Dueling!

Any time you're ready, Friendly, because I'm ready any time. Also, I went to town today because, well... WE NEEDED FOOD. But I kept bugging eeveryone about your magazene. Guess what happened... I went to a comic store, no luck. I went to Gamestop, no Luck. I went to Fred Meyer's... ONE ISSUE that was 3 months old. Lucky me, eh? AND I won't go to town for another two weeks, which means new issue D:

I'm really sorry, my computer crashed. If there is any chance you could come back that would be awesome.

Oop! That's what happened. I killed the troll, hung for a bit, and then logged off to do a couple things before bed time. When the kids got home they logged on UB Funky and I didn't get any more computer time for the night. hehe.
