new computer!  

I had a dream in the middle of the night that Ardian had gotten a huge gig with one of the big comic book companies and I was so excited about it I woke myself up. *laughs and laughs*

I got paid today. We’ve been putting off buying a new desktop computer for over a year (Ted’s crashed … a long time ago, and mine crashed a year ago January and then another one, given to us as a replacement, went down in…well, before we moved to Longford), and so we put aside part of the last paycheck and took part of this one and went and bought a Shiny New Computer which we can play City of Heroes on straight out of the box (well, aside from the having to download four and a half years worth of updates for the game). It has a 22 inch monitor, which looks ridiculous. Ted keeps shouting, “Huge tracts of land!” as he’s installing stuff. :)

*slavers* City of Heroes! Only I probably won’t be able to play until like late next week ’cause we’re going to Dublin on Sunday. Hrmph. :)

Yay CoH! My current obsession, for better or worse ;)

Perhaps we'll play together sometime!

I've mostly lapsed on my City of Heroes time, but I'm starting to get excited about Champions Online. Same company that does City of Heroes, and a lot of the same devs, getting to start over and keep the good stuff from CoH (and there's a lot of good stuff), and make it even better! They're starting to leak info, and it looks awesome!

When it hits, I'm totally gonna make sure we do some server coordination, maybe make one of those guildy-things! :D The greater horde network has a lot of cool people.

That's sorta true. CO is being put out by Cryptic Studios, who originally developed CoH, but sold it a while ago to NCSoft who has since taken over continued development. The game has since improved in a lot of good ways, so I consider the move a positive thing.
