Thank You, LJ Braintrust! Plus, An Announcement of Sorts

Well, you were all correct: McAfee is Teh Suck™. I uninstalled it from my machine and suddenly everything ran beautifully. While I was at it I installed WinPatrol, RegCure, and AVG and made sure AdAware was up-to-date and chugging along nicely.

Then I went and bought a graphics card so big it has its own fan installed on it. Seriously. 0.o I better not need to upgrade that for a good five years. That enabled me to go ahead and run Neverwinter Nights II, which so far is certainly pretty to look at but storywise is a big "so what?" It reminds me more of Fable than anything else, which is okay but not my first choice. I've done the "farmboy saves the world" plot, I'd like something a little more original now, plskthx. Maybe I'll play with the toolset and do that Conan thing after all ... someday. ;)

Anyway, that's not the announcement of sorts; the announcement of sorts is that I expect to do a lot of cocooning this coming week. I'm going to be very busy at work, and I've got a lot on my plate in terms of things I need to do and things I want to do, so SJ will definitely be impacted (I know I'm not going to have a story strip tomorrow -- whether I'll have a Character Q&A is yet to be seen). NN is due to start up again on Tuesday, but a lot of that depends on whether Sue is finished with her cocooning yet. ;)

Hopefully this will only last a few days or maybe a week, and things will pick up again soon.

PS: And no, I'm not going to spend a week up to my eyebrows in NWN 2 -- it's not interesting enough for that.
