today's update

Not only did the 49ers lose, but they lost in overtime against the St. Louis Lambs! Argh! If only Wilson had sat his ass down instead of trying for a few extra yards and called a timeout we could have kicked a field goal to win the game outright.

I wanted to have chicken soup for dinner but that's kind of hard to make when you forget to take the chicken out to defrost. *ahem* So, it was beef, hamburger actually, & vegetable soup. Instead of onion powder I used some dehydrated onion flakes for a stronger flavor and I also used a few drops of soy sauce in place of using salt. It came out rather good.

When I can afford it I need to get a new graphics card. Mine only has 8MB of RAM which gets me nowhere with newer games. Speaking of which, Maxis will be releasing another add-on for the Sims called "Making Magic." It'll be the last add-on for the original Sims making way for the Sims 2.

In other news, Ben and J Lo have broken up. Excuse me whist I yawn at this tidbit. *packs gear to get ready to stalk Ben* ;o)

Only 8MB on your video card?
I wanted to upgrade to a 128 from a 64. You really need to upgrade. Have you got an AGP slot or are you stuck with PCI?
Re: Only 8MB on your video card?
Actually, it's not even a card but an Intel chipset on the motherboard. And yes, I'm stuck with a PCI connection. I'd been holding off because I thought I might be able to swing getting a new computer this fall, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.

I saw a 128MB card on sale at BestBuy but according to the specs it needs a Pentium III/Athlon and I've got a Celeron. *sigh*
Re: Only 8MB on your video card?
Oof. Have you checked into having a local shop build you one? Often they can build them cheaper than you can put together. Is your Celeron a Socket 370? If it's slotted, you're probably screwed, but do you know what your motherboard is and what it'll support? Trying to think of all your options/cost levels here... I know how to squeeze the hell out of pennies, long practice of a necessity. *G*
