Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Dec 09, 2009 5:30am PST FCUK 63--that's me. For the next few years, my foremost expression of myself will be good old FCUK 63. Though I might only need you so I can see, by being slapped on my face you are essentially a constant fashion accessory so let's make the most of it.

Sipping tea at 5 o'clock on the dot with the Women's Institute, your sensible design will please elder conservatives while your flash of colour will thrill progressives. When you get lost during tomfoolery down the pub with the Long Island Iced Tea Ladies Society, even in that state I'll be able to spot you and remember we belong together. Stumbling to the front door in the middle of the night to find a police constable telling me they're very sorry but there's been an accident, there you'll be right there with me FCUK 63, hanging lop-sided across my face from one ear with a bright streak to lighten the mood.

You and me, FCUK 63. I think we're going to get on just fine.

  • 2009 will go down in history as the year when I started buying games again. I haven't bought games (save for the occational SingStar disc) since Morrowind back in -01 or something. But a few weeks ago I (got ok from the gf and) bought a PS3, and during the last Steam sales I have bought a few games as well.

    I still don't have much time to play with two hobbies and a 2-year old daughter, but at least I have manages to cram in a few hours of Plants vs Zombies, Litte Big Planet and R&C: Quest for Booty.

    It feels good to finally have and idea what you guys are talking about again!

  • I finally got brave enough and confident I had everything all backed up, so I upgraded to Win7 last night. Did it off a USB stick and it was the fastest OS install ever. Probably 25 mins or less and I was at the desktop. Got authenticated, driver installs, windows updates, started downloading steam games, etc.

    BTW, is pretty fucking sweet automated install of common apps. What a great idea, I can't believe it hadn't been done before, but this execution is super easy and works without issue. Awesome.

    But anyhow, this morning I wake up and go to the computer and it's blue screened overnight. I don't think I ever saw a blue screen once with Vista :( I have a WHS that probably tried to connect and backup stuff while steam was downloading 30 gigs in games overnight, so maybe that had something to do with it (or maybe sleep mode with all of this going on?). I've had a new video card for a couple of days with no issue with Vista but maybe it could be the cause here too. I dunno.

    So far though, I like the look, I'm getting used to the taskbar. Start menu doesn't bother me, I've always been a type/search person in Vista, so more of the same.

    Oh and I have apparently lost my Adobe Lightroom 2 upgrade disc. WTF. I'm running the Beta 3 download (free until April 2010) until I find it.
