Back in the summertime I had ordered a new computer for myself. I was quite happy with it at that time, but over the last few months, after speaking with Mr. William Weaver and a few other friends, I came to the conclusion that I made some bad decisions on my purchase. I continued to get many crashes and errors and it just wasn’t keeping up with everything I wanted to do with it. So I gave it away and started fresh. A lot of the parts I kept the same since I was happy with them, but certain big things, such as my video card, hard drive, etc… were upgraded. Here is a link to my Computer Specifications page which I have now updated with all the new items.
I have been using this computer since last night and so far, I am extremely happy with it. I guess time will tell if I made the right choices this time. Hopefully I did. I think in my old age I am getting extra finicky lol, so let’s hope it all works out.
I also picked up a 3D mouse, something I had never used before but I am very much enjoying it. I had a lot of fun flying around with it on different sims. When I first plugged it in, I realized that it actually wasn’t compatible with Second Life. It wasn’t working properly like it should. Luckily I found this post by Nalates that explained how to get it working in Second Life. However, most of the post went WAY over my head lol. I am not a very technical person. Luckily someone had mentioned in the comments of the post that they didn’t install any drivers/software for the mouse but just plugged it in and it worked fine in Second Life. So that’s what I did and it works beautifully now.
The first image in this post is the only one I played around a bit in Photoshop with. The last two images are directly from Second Life, I just cropped and resized them. I have a couple of more images that I took and used the direct upload to flickr feature from the snapshot menu. I went to Kingdom of Sand and Winter Moon for both of those raw shots.
I spent Christmas eve with my family last night. We had a big dinner and then just hung out and played games. Our favorite one these days is the murder mystery: Werewolves of Millers Hollow. I have a pretty big family so the game goes on for a while and all the grownups and kids get so into it. It’s a lot of fun.
So although there is no such thing as a white Christmas in Florida and my family really doesn’t celebrate Christmas, it was still a fun and meaningful time for us. I hope you had the same with your family and friends. Merry Christmas everyone! <3
