  1. Back up and running

    Hooray, things are working again. The first attempt to reinstall XP failed miserably when some of my drivers wouldn't install to the correct partitions (my ATI driver insisted on extracting half its files to C and half to D, awesome huh?) so I had to do it all over again. Back up and running though, and this time around I can actually log into Coolmini properly. For a while I was getting the bloody login errors that have been plaguing some people for months. Anyway I can get back to updates ...
  2. Reformat C:/

    This could be a really boring night. I'm done backing everything up, just need to burn one last CD with some drivers and updates on it to speed things up later. Pretty soon I'll have XP Pro (with a legit license key this time) and hopefully things will be just peachy. The only thing I'm worried about is my iTunes library, I don't think it'll preserve the star ratings when I rebuild my library... which will suck. I'm gonna make a few playlists so hopefully I can update the ratings faster if I need ...
  3. I love being right

    http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/Yeah, you can see it right there. 32 gig iPod Touch, surprisingly affordable. My predictions about solid state memory going down in price are holding up. I still say that we'll have a 128 gig MacBook Air by September (and $400 price drop on the current model... yeah I'm getting cocky and I love it!). If the prices drop this summer I'll officially be starting my told you so dance.
  4. Macbook Air, so hot

    For those of you who haven't seen it yet, I won't waste any time. Click here. For the rest of you: I think I know where my next $3000 is going. Holy crap this thing is the exact definition of what a laptop should be. For years I've been asking why bother make a laptop that isn't either a) completely portable (ie. under 4 lbs!) or b) a more or less portable powerhouse computer. I always said that anything else was a waste of money. I wept bitter tears when they discontinued my beautiful 12" ...
  5. Painfully boring evening

    Wow that sure wasn't any fun at all... just spent an entire evening fixing models while waiting for various Windows functions to load... the registry collapsed on our family computer.So for all the incredibly complicated ways for the Eagle to break, it picked a really boring one. The cracks in the flying stand completely gave out when I got the model home. So I had to snap off the peg, drill out the part stuck in the base, drill out the belly of the bird, touch up around the drilling, glue on a ...
  6. Rejoicing in Athel Loren

    Woohoo, first game of the campaign is a massacre for the Wood Elves! I had to fight Bretonians too, which was making me nervous. In the end, my feint on the right flank with the Wardancers bought me enough time to whittle down the two units of Knights with my Glade Guard archers.In the end the key to victory was stalling him as long as possible. I held him at arm's length for a while and eventually my Wardancers got a chance to get into combat. They soaked a charge admirably using the 4+ Ward dance, ...
  7. New Years goodness

    Hey all, I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable holiday so far. Just thought I'd give a quick update while I'm still under the blissful effects of unsafe dosages of extra strength Asparin. Got a nasty cold complete with pounding headaches, sore throat and last night I had a lovely time freezing and shivering in bed despite a massive pile of blankets once I got home from the New Years shindig.So I probably won't be doing any more painting for a day or two, I had been making some good progress on ...
  8. Christmas is canceled

    Wow, I've never been un-invited to Christmas dinner before. I guess I've got some free time on my hands today...
  9. Die, xenos scum!

    I hope you dirty xenos players will forgive my enthusiasm, but I played my first 40k game in months yesterday. My Salamanders took on my friend Tom's Orks, probably our last battle with the old Ork rules. The new book is out in a couple days for the advance orders.The game was an incredibly fun one, with Tom and I exchanging heavy blows throughout. Tom and I know each other's tactics very well, and often use similar styles of army composition and maneuvers. Needless to say, we do a good job wiping ...
  10. Plans Within Plans

    I know I said I wasn't gonna post anything without pictures (and I definitely had the not posting part down pat) but the bit of work I've been able to do lately isn't exactly worth showing. Lately I've been planning some army lists a bit more, and possibly even figuring out ways that I might get a game in eventually.So yeah very little paint being applied to models lately, but I cleaned and built a few dozen models and I've drawn up several 500 pt Wood Elf lists. I have a few friends that want to ...
