Odds and Ends

Blog post 99.  How did that happen? I generally post something akin to a 2L travelogue, so I will apologize in advance as this will be a little different.  I've been absolutely slammed in RL the last few months but have finally earned a bit of a reprieve this week.

The other half of that story is my desktop computer got taken out by a lowly cup of water which traveled from the power supply unit, to the mother board and eventually on to the graphics card.  Just like that, it was fried.  Poof and finito.  Unfortunately, I had to order and replace each part one by one until the full extent of the damage was discovered.  Finally, the last piece is repaired and installed.  By me, no less.  (The final task is to get a new keyboard with a working space bar, as it is annoying the hell out of me but probably annoying everyone I chat with even worse)
Well now, anyone who has had a computer disaster knows it is a ton of fun to test the limits of your new rig.  Especially when you have upgraded in the process.  Some of you may recall that Saint Veritable Quandary, in his supreme patience, helped me set up my behemoth a few years ago.Not that I would have chosen to go about it this way, but was time for improvements.  As luck would have it, Annan Adored chose the same week to unveil her collection of 2013 Windlight settings.
Time to dilly dally, a new graphics card, and lovely new windlights.  I think it is going to be a good week!
I suggest you try out the Annan Adored windlights and don't hesitate to experiment with tweaking them to suit your purpose.   Full installation instructions can be found on her blog if you are unfamiliar with the process.  Enjoy!
