    Ragusa, looks like you'll have to learn the joys of Solitaire and Minesweeper all over again. :evil:

    I feel your pain.

    Made progress in troubleshooting? PSU?

    No progress really. I'll know more on Tuesday. Just to be safe I ordered a new MoBo, just in case (if I don't need it I'll return it unopened) since it is the most problematic component as far as ordering times are concerned. If it's the PSU and GPU that's easily fixed, since I can more easily get replacements at any number of shops.

    At least, I got LotRO to run on the netbook, granted, on LowRes, but pretty smoothly. So, no need to rediscover Solitaire and Minesweeper and the like.

    Having played LotRO a bit on that AMD E-450 netbook, I can say in summary this: It runs reasonably smooth, there is lag once the screen gets crowded. It really takes some getting used to to have a screen of about quarter the size of what I am used to. All in all, it's an acceptable portable solution. However, I am rather amazed at the performance the AMD E-450 delivers, for a netbook.

    The closer I get to that commercialized Christian force fed holiday, the longer the workdays are. Two left and after x-mas the rest of the week off.

    Just ordered a 120 euro Razer black widow ultimate keyboard. Overtime money well spent.

    And yes, I love X-mas.

    I think she's a bit small for that, I get a camera tomorrow so will probably get pics of her along with the two other girls and the boy we've got :)

    [​IMG] No snow here and I, for one, am not complaining! :lol:

    The pythons are still in small vivariums so the cold would not be good in the livingroom until we get them into bigger wooden vivs next year :rolleyes:

    No snow here either. But we had snow enough for at least two winters last year so I'm not complaining!

    It is so depressing to see the year in end-titles of movies. Just saw Jumanji and it said 1995.

    Ouch.
