Okay, having some City of Heroes problems.

Okay, until yesterday, I was able to get City of Heroes to load, but when I would play, I would be mapserved constantly, and rubberbanding just as often. Finally, I was offered this advice:

1. Please download Driver Sweeper at: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1655

2. Click on "Download Now" then select a location that you would like to download it from.

3. Scroll down on the next page; click on "I Agree" and a file download window will come up.

4. Click on save, then in the “Save As” dialog window choose Desktop as the “Save In:” location.

5. Once the download is complete, run the program or double-click on the file you downloaded to your desktop to install Driver Sweeper.

6. Choose all of the default installation options.

7. Once installation is complete, start Driver Sweeper either from the desktop icon or through the Programs Menu.

8. Within the Driver Sweeper program, check the check box next to the ATI Display driver from the list, also check any other display drivers you may have installed in the past on this machine. (Note: Please do not check any lines that say chipset)

9. Click the “Clean” button.

10. Once done, please reboot your PC if not prompted to.

11. When the reboot is complete, please download and install this driver http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=win7/windows-7-64bit


I followed the directions, and now when I try to load the game, I get this: Your card or driver doesn't support ARB_multitexture, then the game stops loading at all. I already told the support guys about it, but I was wondering if any of you lovely people had any advice for this completely not tech-savvy player who just wants to get back to breaking Skulls?


Also, for giggles:

Someone please tell me that this is some kind of elaborate joke.

On a more rambly side, there really is nothing like starting to write in a fresh notebook. Just looking at those blank, clean pages fills me with delight at all the possibilties. On the other hand, there’s nothing more annoying than hauling around a notebook you’ve already filled up because you might get the chance to type some of the things in it up and don’t want to miss the oppertunity.

I have been good (in as much as I ever am about these kinds of things) and e-mailed both my mother and my brother (who has forgotten that he does have a Livejournal, or perhapse just the password for it).

In other news, I finally snagged an Autum egg. Aside from my Vampire, Orlock, this is the rarest egg I've ever gotten. Huzzah.

It's cold and rainy, and the moment I open my umbrella, it rains sideways. Ugh.

I finally watched the newest Nostalgia critic, so...



Anyway, last call for Christmas Fics. If you want to have me write something for you, this week is the last chance you'll get to tell me (at least, if you want a chance of seeing it posted before Christmas).

I think my mother's cell phone hates me (or, despite the fact that I was told to call her, she's not answering), and the number I have for my brother in painfully out of date.

Once again, I am over at Chelsea's. Once she's awake enough to be able to focus, we'll be watching I My Me! Strawberry Eggs. I love this show.

I've made a bunch more icons, which will get posted eventually, including a lot of Inhumans and Northstar.

For the record: No, the two white eggs aren't an accidental double post of the same egg.

Didn't get as many fics typed this weekend as I try to, but that's partly because I was making Icons (avalible over at dorksidefiker. Spent most of yesterday over at Chelsea's, and a good chunk of that on her computer while she and another friend of hers played with dolls (I am not as in-tune with my inner 6 year old as Chelsea or Terry, so I stayed out of it). We also watched Slither and a few episodes of Season 1 of Doctor Who. A good time was had by all.

So yesterday was Chelsea's birthday party, and I finally got to meet Chelsea's trans-mommy (her term), Safrina.

Safrina creeps the living shit out of me. She comes off as reasonably normal... until she gets started on how in a past life, she and Chelsea were male lovers and she allowed Chelsea to get stoned to death. And how she and Chelsea are destined to be together for always. She goes on and on about how when she was 12 she was a girl and was force-masculinised by her father, and how back then she was only 5'1'' and would have stayed that way if not for him.

Um, what? You're honestly trying to tell me that girls don't go through puberty the same as boys and get taller?

This morning, Safrina caught a plane to Thailand to have the sex change surgery because she can't get one here (she won't say why, but I can make a few guesses). She seems to be under the impression that doing this will make her not be 6 feet tall, middle aged, and balding.

She expects to become Chelsea's lover when she comes back, and to move in with her, into this one room apartment Chelsea has, because her parents won't allow her back after the surgery.

For someone who likes to think she's so good with words, I'm having a hard time conveying just how much this person scares the living shit out of me. Safrina and Chelsea have met all of two times in real life, and Chelsea refers to her as her Mommy, and she wants to be Chelsea's lover. Chelsea, who is, when it comes right down to it, INCREDIBLY damaged and really shouldn't be expected to enter into any kind of serious relationship, and anyone who pays any kind of attention can see that!

I take come comfort that I'm not the only one who finds Safrina and what she wants creepy. Safrina will very happily talk about what she expects to anyone, and Chelsea had a bunch of friends over for her birthday (fact of the matter is, I was the only one there who was comfortable with the gender I was born with, and ended up spending much of the time just listening to conversations because I didn't really have anything to add).

Anyway, when Ashley left, I walked her to her car (I'd decided to book out a little early, and I needed to get back downtown for work anyway), and she told me that she was just as creeped out by Safrina. Aparently, since I've known Chelsea the longest, I have been elected as official spokesperson.

As soon as she's more awake, Chelsea and I are going to be having a chat. I would have done it last night, but it was impossible to get her away from Safrina long enough to have one.

I really hate those conversations.

One of the clients had a bunch of stuffed animals that had a metric fuckton of fleas. I say 'Had' because they were dumped into the incinerator last night. My direct boss is now doing battle with HER boss about having this woman barred for being disgusting.

Renewed my ID this morning. I honestly don't know why people bitch and moan about having to get this done. I was in and out in under 10 minutes. Of course, I got there just before they opened and was second in line, which likely helped a great deal.

Anyway, yesterday I introduced Chelsea to Torchwood. She's hooked, and I am pleased.

I've been living in Washington State for over five years now. I know this because my ID is coming up for renewal this month and my bank account is overdrawn. *headdesks repeatedly* I don't think I have enough different things to prove that I'm me to be able to get a new one if I don't get enough to update my ID before the 27th (why the fuck does my birthday have to fall on Thanksgiving THIS fucking year?). I shall be reminding my few RL friends that my birthday is fast approaching, and I would be incredibly grateful for a slightly early cash gift.



There are times when I really hate my job. But I suspect I'd hate most anything else almost as much. It seems like I work in the one remaining growth industry.

I've done my duty as an American Citizen over the age of 18, and I've voted.

For Cobra Commander.

I have to admit it, I don't like EITHER of the Presidential Canidates. I was there to vote on the issues (such as the Death with Dignity Law), and I felt the urge to throw my two cents into the presidential race.

Either way, I foresee a 'Meet the new boss, same as the old boss' situation.

One of my co-workers tells me I'm too young to be so cynical.

We had a big registration drive at work over the last few months, getting every woman who comes into the shelters who can vote TO vote. Those of my co-workers with cars are actually shuttling women to voting centers today.

Good luck to my fellow sane and rational beings in California! Keep Marriage Legal!

After almost an hour and a half of epic battle, I now have a Header on both fullmetal_cute and dorksidefiker. Huzzah.

My allergies are starting to kill me, so I'm taking enough Benadryl to knock out an angry elephant.

I have 101 stories typed and waiting to be posted. Go me.

Dragon Cave seems to be down again. It's been happening a lot lately. I understand the Grand High Poobah is currently doing updates to the site.

Only posted two things on my fic-journal (and didn't even post links to them on any of the groups I normally would) because I got kidnapped by Gypsies as I was posting. They have fed me and left me most sleepy, so I'm going to be lazy and not post anything else today.

My dragons have all hatched. Please keep thinking girl thoughts at the split, and boy thoughts at everything else. Well, except for the pink. That's kind of a given.
