Finally! I went to exchange the graphics card today. The store was very friendly, they only asked me for five euros more when I exchanged the card that was not broken in any way into a different one, for basically it was all my fault I didn't get it right the first time. Well, my friend plugged the card in, we downloaded the driver, restarted the computer and tried the game - it works! And this time, no blockiness, no grayed out smooth edges, no nothing. And it is pretty and fast, yay!

So, now unless anything else breaks (*knocks on wood* Some bad luck I've had with it, but now it finally looks to be fine. *knocks again*), I should be all set. I think I know what I'm doing this weekend. :)

Wheeeeee!

Sooo, guess who has a new computer? You know, one that stays on and all.

Excited computer babble here! )

After that I yet need to install all less urgent stuff before I get to sim, but that is already peanuts now that things are looking this good. *is excited*

Oh, and as I've been getting excited about the prospect of simming again, I got struck with an idea for a Bookacy spin-off just the other day. There are several ways in which it would be quite hard, and I'm not entirely sure I could do it, buuuuut... I've been saying that I need a side project, and the idea feels kind of awesome... I'll have to ponder on this some more.

*huggles new computer, simmies and f-list* It's great to have things moving again!

Someone grew up. :) The transition outfit might be a bit unfortunate, but actually, everything else went better this time around. You know, no missing placeholders, no outfit/aging wonkiness. As an added bonus, this time around the streaker came by and the cow mascot managed to get a pillow fight in edgewise and thus make her stay on the lot, so both Nicholas and Cho now know the streaker. Which is nice, as she's an NPC and somewhat hard to catch.

So all in all, things are good again in Alphabetia. :)
