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. :)

Hope you're not running Vista. I can't run CoH/V for more than 30 minutes at a time on my Vista installed brand, new super laptop with all the super graphics cards... It's very annoying.

It's got Vista, sadly. Hopefully it will not choke.

*sends that directly to Ted who's setting up the new machine* :)

I'll cross my fingers for you. I've got another older laptop with XP that I'll be gaming on soon. I finally got a toon up to 50.

I've had no problems running CoH on my Vista (x64) desktop with no monkeying around with the settings. I do crash sometimes, but it's about as often as boyfriend who is sitting next to me on his XP computer :)
