Caveat Emptor

2012.07.21 | 17:24
location: A surrogate
mood: Miffed
music: Generic BGM from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness

Well, I was supposed to be working on getting more emails and stuff out and working on my Internet, but my excuse this time is pretty good: the computer died. I was in a hurry last January, too, so I may have overlooked the fact that some people have had troubles with hard drive failure after the first year. If that's the case, I'll be a bit more miffed, as although I started keeping more and more of my files online since college, I haven't found good places for some things (without paying extra), like Pathfinder character sheets in printable format and story background that I can't reveal yet. (In particular, as I obliquely mentioned before, I actually got around to typing the script for an entire comic, but was dealing with a lot of other stuff before printing it so I could work on the panel layouts.) I really should be more careful about backing this stuff up and/or posting it online in the first place.

In the meantime, it looks like I'm going to have to buy a new one. Maybe I'll try something more reliable. I could try the next thing on the list for possible Internet (on which I can expand sometime) in the same order, too.

Thorin robs Frodo. Then Frodo wants his money back, so Thorin brings his crew up to a dozen members and robs some other folks. For the third heist, Thorin decides to rob Frodo's uncle, so he hires Frodo as the final teammate.

To what trilogy am I referring?

The Latter Is Full of F-Bombs, Though

I was thinking of typing up a personal ad seeking a goblin shaman or rogue, but wireless is too spotty for online games from my apartment, as there are two exterior walls and a few paces between me and the lounge. My aunt suggested I get a booster for the cell phone. Is there some way I could do that for Internet, too, or should I just buckle down and buy my own? Of course, I remember the wireless card not working consistently when I first got it, so maybe I should get a separate one of those, even if it doesn't bust through walls like Cain Marko. None of this will, of course, help with the facts that Skyrim is tedious, and Mass Effect 3 automatically causes me to fail the only mission that advances the plot.

Meanwhile, those visual novels that can't afford voice acting (whether or not they also include actual gameplay elements) are dinky enough that I can download them. I particularly appreciate that this one has gorgeous illos without trying to be "Ănĭmé." Ironically enough, that separates it from the one that introduced me to the term "weeaboo." Also, these two for some reason have different illustrators for the event CGs, which seems odd based on how short they are (only two yuri routes for the former, possible to get two NPCs together in the latter). Still, it's good to support independent games, right? They're not even adults-only, and the level of that in the former is kinda' amusing, as they included people saying "What the blast?" and an option to make the characters put on shirts. Still, they're not immune to the problems of more complex but more play-tested products; that's why this one insists you try the demo to make sure it works; I've tried installing from both mirrors, but either way, half of the characters are scrambled, and it's interrupted by several error messages per sentence. That doesn't usually happen to me when it's in the Roman alphabet; can anyone else do better? I was keen on the fact that that one had puzzles, too.

In a couple of months, Mother's going to be sending me my PS2, with all the games I couldn't play while living with her, so I guess I'll be buying a TV or monitor or something even if I don't get a kinect.

Edit (2012.07.17): Changed bad grammar and British punctuation
