Painful Thursdaily

RL: My ear hurts. It's been like three weeks now. I was taking pills the the doctor told me to take, but they aren't helping. Also, it's hot and humid and I hate it. I'm breaking a sweat just by sitting.

I fear I might have to go to the hospital for my ear, or at the very least go see a specialist.

D2: Yes, very likely. I'll probably MP with FE and Dune.

OVG: Torchlight.

Hope everyone's having a better summer.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

@pijus - sorry to hear about your ear problems, the heat is certainly not helping im sure. If you opt to see the doctor they might have the AC on aswell so another bonus to going ;)

RL: not much really waiting for my coffee to finish brewing while i mess around on the computer. might do some more reading later, and possibly get caught up on some anime.

D2: yep, going to get started on NM with my HC druid today hopefully it gose just as smooth as normal did.

OVG: none of particular interest atm.

D2: HC MP with Dune6836 and PJ over Skype. So much fun.

OVG: Maybe some BF:BC2 later.

RL: Going to have some drinks with friends later today.

D2: Yes, starting Nightmare with my Shockadin I think. Just finished Nightmare with my Poison Necro.

OVG: No, not really interested at the moment.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

Ear problems are no bueno, Pijus! I've been having some weird stuff going on my my ears (or, more properly, my sense of hearing) for some months now, but given that I live in the United States, and given that my "Health Insurance" plan actually raises the cost of going to see a doctor,* I guess I'll live with it. Still no bueno, though.

And I hope your ear troubles are on their way out, for sure. And +1 for 'the hospital might have AC.'

RL: Strange dreams last night: I woke up with Funtime stuck in my head and some crazy Flock of Seagulls hair. Nice. And I woke up 5 minutes early, too, so gogo. Then it was up, shave/shower, coffee (I didn't get the pot set just right under the dripper, but this failure had no noticeable effect on the quality of the coffee: yum, as usual (there's that word again!)), and interwebs. Soon: sandwich, traffic, driving, workies, lunch, workies, driving, interwebsurfing, dinner, X-Filing and sleeping, so I can do it all again tomorrow. WOO!

D2: Since I mentioned sometimes having a strange sort of D2 flashback urge at work, I haven't had the strange sort of D2 flashback-style urge at work. Meh. But I actually did have a (brief) flash of D2-related desire yesterday. So maybe some day in the future? idk.

*not really, but it certainly doesn't lower the cost any. Health care here is a joke, and one only understood by the privileged. Oh well.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

@jamesixgun - I always feel sorry when I hear people in the US talk about health care. The NHS here in the UK may be criticised a lot, but I'd definitely prefer it to private health care.

RL: I don't know what was up with me this morning. Normally I will get a good 7-9 hours sleep as long as I go to bed late enough. Went at 5am the other night, woke up at 2pm. Perfectly okay. Went to bed at 4am this morning, woke up at a little after 8am.. no idea why. Not all that tired, so I guess it's okay.

D2: Pindleskin.. Pindleskin.. Pindleskin.. etc. Once my GF Barb and his merc hit Act 3 Hell and I get their equipment sorted out I'll start hitting Travincal and hopefully start gambling soon after that. Will be a new experience for me, especially as I don't really have any halfway-decent rares in my stashes.

OVG: Not really. I've a ton of games on Steam to still play, I'm sure I'll get round to it at some point.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

My doctor wrote back. She made an appointment with an ear doctor tomorrow at 9 in the morning. It's an hour to get to the clinic, so I have to get up at 7.00-7.20. Blah.

Right now on lunch break from an MP game. Gotta get to actually eating the lunch :D

Rl: had to get up early to see my sister off to California. Today is the first ever day where we go to the park in the dark and fight each other like ninjas:smug:. Should be fun and hilarious.

D2: Helpin the mod with an experiment.

OVG: Tactics maor.

RL: I had some bloodwork done. I am now very very sleepy.

D2: With some runes to burn in my pocket, my Amazon is ready to go for the MFO. Although there's a chance I might have to gear up my Blizzy for some AT action.

OVG: Taking a quickie from Torchlight and playing King's Bounty/Company of Heroes.

RL: Got home from Niagara falls yesterday, went down for 4 days to visit family and all that jazz. Currently at work, looking out at a hazey day that will probably bring thunderstorms.

D2: Gotta start doin' Baal runs

OVG: Bought Kindgom Hearts : 358 1/2 when I was in Toronto on my bus layover. If you can tell, I kind of like the series.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

RL: Day four of work is done. Bit of a PItA day; had to "train" someone on a task that is outside my own department, and as a result I didn't fulfill the quota. Whatever. Neither the task nor the training is my responsibility.

Had fried chicken on the brain all day, so after making a car payment I got some. Soon it will be fried chicken in the mouth. Watching last night's TV, should write a couple emails... but I'm in chillax mode.

D2: Not yet. Still thinking about it.

OVG: Torchlight, if I get around to anything tonight.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

Did someone say fried chicken? I wish I was sober so I could drive to town and get some.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

RL: Bought a Pentium 4/2.8 Ghz/500mb memory/75g HDD PC today for $100, complete with a monitor and keyboard/mouse. While it isn't particularly awesome... I added to it with the memory and HDD from my old computer.That brought it up to 1.5g memory, and 395gigs of space.

I'd say that's pretty damn good for $100. I haven't tried my video card with it yet(it can play Diablo 2 regardless, which is what really matters anyways for me.) I may try later, but since I do not have the discs that came with the card, I don't know if it would work.(I've never actually built a computer before... haven't had the cash.)

D2:

-Installed Diablo II
-Installed LoD
-Updated to 1.13c
-Downloaded GoMule

I haven't made a character yet, as I just finished doing all of this. I will soon though, after I decide what to start with.

OVG: ????

Re: Painful Thursdaily

@Vodnik: Sounds like a bargain. GL with the upgrade, and +1 for never having built a computer before!

Re: Painful Thursdaily

Yeah, it definitely was worth the $100. After messing around with it for the past few hours, I definitely believe it is much improved from my old computer. Though it does make a bit more noise than I would have hoped.

I still await the day I can actually PLAY new games, instead of just reading about them. But hey... that's where Diablo 2 comes in :p

Anyways, I need to get off these forums and start playing!!!

Re: Painful Thursdaily

@Vodnik: all that should be on the disc that came with your video card would be the drivers. You'd most likely get better performance by using the newer drivers you'd find on the company's website, anyway. Plug in your card, fire up the system, then go to the vendor (nVidia, ATI [now AMD] ... unless your card is really old I assume it's one of those) website and search for your card.

I had a comp with similar specs (Pentium 4 3Ghz, 1Gig RAM, 230GB hard drive) before I built the rig I'm on now, and it played D2 just fine, even with just the onboard graphics. With an added video card it played SC2 at lowest settings, but I wouldn't say it did that well. Either way, congrats on the fairly nice deal!

RL: Worked hard. Got caught in the rain. Had power go off at home multiple times.

D2: Gonna try and find a decent Baal map for the MFO, and test out the kit Nagisa sent me.

OVG: Probably no SC2 tonight. I'll watch a stream before I go to bed, though, to get my fix.

Re: Painful Thursdaily

@maareek

I had thought of that just after waking up this morning, and then I realized something.

I threw away my video card when I threw out my old tower. It is still where I left it, but I suspect that the dew from last night may have ruined it. I am debating whether or not to try and get it...

Probably won't though. It was an Nvidia 5200. Very old. I need a new one anyways, so i suppose I will just wait until I can afford a better one. This computer can play D2 in windowed mode just fine, but not fullscreen(it lags severely, even in windowed Fullscreen.)
