We can't close on the house because the sellers are too sick to sign their papers and get them notarized. Therefore, they cannot Fedex them up to NY for the closing. So, it's pushed off for a week.

I am not amused.

Video game update

| February 25, 2007

In my New Year's post I mentioned that I was going to try and play more video games, and that I wasn't going to use Wine, because it was too unreliable. responded and says that Wine has gotten a lot better. Consequently, I will now be testing every Windows game on Wine before I start to play it under Windows.

The first test is Diablo (the original one). It installed fine, as did the expansion, but then I went to play it and the screen is all black. It appears that the menu is there but not being displayed. However, this basically means that you can't start the game.

So, I'm playing it on the Wintendo.

Then I got distracted by Destroy all Humans 2, and started playing that. Now that I've beaten it, I'll likely go back to Diablo.

Wedding pics

I don't have pics available of the wedding itself, since those were taken by the photographer and he owns the copyright. However, here are collections of the after-wedding breakfast, the reception, the rehearsal dinner, and us taking pictures with guns like people did in times gone by.

Also, since I’ve finally clevered out this “export photo album to HTML” feature, I will probably (finally) be getting around to posting pics of the wedding, honeymoon, some shots from some time I spend in California, stuff on kittens, computers, and other misc projects. I will post links as I chew through them.

Hey folks. These are some guns that I bought some months ago and am only now getting around to posting pictures.

Armscor AK22, Browning Buck Mark, and Ruger 10/22 stainless. Now, the browning and the ruger are basically .22 “proxies” for guns which cost more to shoot. AK and proxy 1911 and proxy Collection of my .22’s
