I'm having an extended visit with my dad this week. He fell on the weekend while my sister was here, so I had to come down early so she could go home. It is sooooo cooooold today! I only brought shorts and tee-shirts with me, and one jacket And we're only 3 weeks into Autumn! I can't believe we're planning to move down here in the middle of winter! I would take my laptop back to bed with me, but it's going to be hard to use the mouse and an external monitor like that. Toying with blankets, but I'm not fond of bulk. And there are no heaters Brrrrrrrrrr!
Forum tip: It's really not a good idea to tell someone how to hack MV to circumvent the trial period. Especially when the last post prior to yours is a staff member saying you're not allowed to circumvent the trial period.
#1 bonus to having to reinstall Windows & upgrade to Win 10: I can now get the developer console via test play in MV, and don't need to create all my projects in the inetpub folder and test them in a browser anymore. Yay to being able to put my projects where I want them to go! I was really hoping this reinstall would fix that issue - it stumped a number of people who are far more clever than I. I'd say it's worth it just to get that working
I broke my computer. Deleting a program manually 'cause uninstall failed, and removing stuff from the registry (done this successfully with this program before). Apparently I removed a bit too much, and said program wouldn't work after reinstalling, Chrome wouldn't work, email program wouldn't work, numerous games wouldn't run. So my week has been filled with backing up all my files (1 day), downloading & installing Windows 10 (1 day), reformatting, resetting, installing Windows 8.1 followed by Windows 10 (1 day - cause first Win 10 only did an upgrade and not a complete reinstall & format, leaving registry still corrupted). That's where I'm at now. Got to go away today, and when I get back home tomorrow I can begin to reinstall all my programs and put my data back where it belongs. At least there isn't much crud that came with the reinstall or upgrade I need to get rid of.
Now that I am no longer a mod, I can happily refuse to even look at topics that are titled HELP ME or other similar rubbish, and not feel even the slightest bit guilty about it. There is a definite sense of freedom and relief
Been looking for houses for a month or so. Not very many coming up where we want to go. The only one on the short list, which we hope to see next week or early the week after, looks quite nice - house a bit small, yard nice and big, and vegie gardens and fruit trees already established. But it has the main highway going past the front gate, and a train track right at the back of the block (trains only pass a couple of times a week), plus a school right over the road (homeschooling son hates schools and other kids). Still, it's worth looking at, only 15 minutes from dad. If we decide to apply and are accepted, the move will be in 2-4 weeks. Nothing like rushing things
If you have sent me a PM for something that doesn't specifically need my attention, please either post your question on the forum, or use the Report facility to bring it to the attention of the moderators. I am going to be away from the forum on and off on a frequent basis over the next few months at least, and I don't want people waiting for replies from me to questions that any other person on the forum can answer. If I have not responded to your PM, it's because I know it doesn't need MY attention and my time is committed to other more important things right now.
Please do not PM me for game or forum help. I will be away for a few days and unable to see or reply to your message. If you need moderator assistance, please use the Report facility. If you need general help, post in the forum.
Would anyone be interested in an FFX-style quotes plugin that shows a little gab window when an actor is about to kill/crit an enemy or with a chance for a quote on things like inflicting states and hitting weaknesses?
