Derek was just here and installed the new card - I've had that long-running psu argument with him (well, when he was putting pieces together for this puter two years ago before I gave the OK I looked at the psu and said - I think it needs to be bigger, but he convinced me it was fine), so he arrives at about 10:30 (just walks in - that's m' boy), pulls out the 8800, I say ARE YOU SURE THAT PSU IS BIG ENOUGH?? and he says, "You are in luck, or maybe not in luck - this psu won't work (wrong amps) - I'll be back in an hour."
He came back with a 650w and put it in, wrestled with the cables, fired it up, and adjusted a few things, then I went in SL (and discovered I was a robot - I'd been in the middle of taking Combat Cards pictures when it blew up A MONTH AGO) and it all felt weird (of course). So - a month + $500 = seems ok - wonder how long I'll tip-toe about before I feel confident.

It was with GREAT relief that I saw your message from SL this afternoon. I ran in and started sailing, while sending sporadic mini-messages (akin to tweets, but from SL) to you, chirping merrily in hopes you would take the plunge back into the world. THEN .... dun dun dun DUN! there you were, and we sailed and spoke of cabbages and kings! YAY THE OSPREY RETURNS!
I knew there was a good reason to leave the interdimensional teletrans enhancer running at the Bodega Explorers' Base!
