I realise I forgot to post yesterday, I do apologize, I have was preoccupied with The Sims 2, and other things that were keeping my attention, something that just lately has been something of a rarity so keeping me amused by making Final Fantasy characters in the Sims 2 and engineering complex and sometimes very funny love triangles between them (it is a bit like a Soap Opera, but without the corny acting) and seeing how that works out. OK, throwing Lightning (FF XIII) and Sephiroth (FF VII) together was quite funny and also very sweet.
Nathaniel came to visit me yesterday which was very nice, bringing me a few things and sticking on a film for us all to watch together. I forgot how much I liked Final Fantasy : The Spirits Within, although the graphics really did get me thinking of the ones used in Advent Children. The fact that at first I almost thought that it was live-action rather than CGI really does say something about the quality of the Havoc Engine that they used. I am a sucker for technology really, always have been and probably always will be, it keeps me occupied and makes me smile in an odd sort of way.
I recently took apart a DS Lite that had had tea spilled all inside of it to see if we could get it working again, unfortunately we found out that the tea had dissolved some of the components and it was never going to work again. I was gutted, yes, but soon, I will get myself a new DS to keep me amused for a while. I guess I am always after the next distraction and amusement. But, that is just me being me really. OK I was really proud of myself yesterday, I taught myself how to mount .iso and .uif files using Magic ISO and Magic Disc (Virtual CD Drives, a LIFE SAVER as I downloaded all of the expansion and stuff packs for the Sims 2, only having Bon Voyage and Free Time at the moment, this just seemed like a good idea as it will keep me quiet for hours, plus downloading mods and hacks... VERY happy ^_^).
