  • Fri, 13:41: Bought Overwatch an hour ago. Still trying to get grunky old PC to remember it has a video card.
  • Fri, 13:47: This was a very nice gaming rig about 5 years ago. It still would be except the OS and drivers are all broken due to bitrot. :P
  • Fri, 13:48: The hardware is all still perfectly capable of doing everything a game might want, but the drivers all pretend it isn’t.
  • Fri, 13:50: RT @valeriehalla: second life is so unreal it's like urban exploration in an abandoned cyber fuckzone
  • Fri, 13:51: I’d consider buying a new one if I had a job. :P
  • Fri, 13:52: I can’t really blame this all on Windows. “Pretend perfectly good hardware is old and busted” is S.O.P. for Apple, too.
  • Fri, 13:58: One nice thing about working from home, I can tell my gaming rig to do all its BS updates while I work instead of when I get home.
  • Fri, 14:01: RT @amhistorymuseum: Planning a visit to the museums in Washington, DC, this holiday weekend? Follow #SmithsonianTips for helpful hints. ht…
  • Fri, 14:02: RT @NewYorker: Apple makes great phones––but its music services show it doesn’t understand how people on the Internet behave:
  • Fri, 15:17: RT @microdile: Sometimes it's only in giving advice to friends that I realize I should be following my own advice a lot better.
  • Fri, 15:23: So here’s the current machine: Intel2 Quad Q9550 @2.83 GHz (3 GHz); 8 MB RAM, 460 GB HD.
  • Fri, 15:24: And a video card that was obsoleted by DirectX 11.
  • Fri, 15:24: Sorry, GB.
  • Fri, 15:25: The hard drive is 5 years old. The computer ran a Win 10 upgrade except that the graphics driver kept crashing.
  • Fri, 15:25: I guess now I know why. :P
  • Fri, 15:26: So I guess it boils down to the cost of a new video card vs. the cost of a whole new system.
  • Fri, 15:26: This machine is just for gaming, any more. I do all my work on the Mac.
  • Fri, 15:27: Blugh!
  • Fri, 15:50: So… $60 for new video card which may or may not be meh on old system, $460 for new gaming machine, or $40 wasted on game.
  • Fri, 18:37: At Guapo's. It's quite bonkers. Serves us right for coming on Friday night. XD
  • Fri, 18:39: Gonna break down and hit Best Buy for a video card. If it still sucks too much I'll return it.
  • Fri, 18:40: I can't be blowing my rapidly-disappearing savings on a gaming PC. :P
