My computer experiened the equivalent of a minor cardiac arrest, and I was ever so worried it was going to escalate into a full blown heart attack, but a quick resusitation (read: Two hours of frantic reinstalls) saved the day. And huzzah! My hard drive isn't lost.

I felt like making an update on par in terms of life significance with all of yours. The event I am about to describe sent my mind reeling, and I doubt I shall ever look at the world in the same way.

About 8 months ago I was a big fan of Bejeweled, the arcade game. After maybe 20, 30 hours of solid gameplay I achieved a pinnacle of glory, an all time world wide champion score to which none can compare.
Actually, it was somewhere in the bottom of the top 2000 scores, but it felt pretty big to me. It was around 50,000.
Now, a good deal of time later, I casually come across a mention of Bejeweled and decided to fire up the game once again. Fifteen minutes later, on my very first try in a great length of time, I achieved 65,000, a full 30% greater than my greatest score in ages past. Worlds collided, stars went nova, a hole ripped in the fabric of reality and for an eternity all time stood still.

I was pretty surprised.

For the moment, I've finally finished installing all the programs I need and have started the long process of skinning. Everything will be custom, from the start bar to the cursor to the icons to the login screen to the widgets (uber fun). Joy!

I've run out of ways to describe Jess. All the same, I enjoy my time with her immensely =)

Windows keeps asking me if I want to safely remove my hard drive. What it fails to realise is that it is installed upon that very hard drive. It's almost as if Windows is begging me "Please! Please remove me from your awesome new computer!"

However the printer and network are successfully connected.

My new email address is innocencest[delete]@[delete]googlemail.com!!

I shall soon be migrating LJs. Watch this space.

For anyone wondering, I have an Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard with 1GB of RAM, a 256MB nvidia graphics card, a 3.7GHz AMD Athlon 64 processor and a 250GB Maxtor hard drive. However, even with my 12x DVD rewriteable/CD rewriteable drive, my 1280x1024 neovo TFT monitor, my wireless six button optical mouse and my funky black wireless keyboard, the coolest part of my computer has to be the case. I'll upload a photo of my case before the end of the week.

Fabulous =D Dec. 27th, 2005 @ 02:32 pm
My new computer is fully wired up and functioning like it should be =) It is now as a blank slate for me to mold to my will. Although at the moment it's kind of overwhelming. Where do I start? I *must* get rid of this nasty WinXP skin sooon.

To honour this occasion, I intend to slowly change all of my online accounts to 'Innocence' or some variation thereof. This includes LJ and email. I'll let you know when I get around to it =P

Christmas Presents Dec. 25th, 2005 @ 11:29 am
Am I the only one who, when opening Christmas presents, subconsciously categorises the rubbish into piles of recyclability?

Expect a complete list of gifts shortly =)

Christmas party! Dec. 24th, 2005 @ 08:58 pm
Aaaaaaaaaaah... =)
The party was fabulous. Although I have to say I was rather dissapointed going in with ten gifts and coming out with three =O It sure is a good thing material wealth isn't important, eh?

Most of the time, I'm forcing my weak fragile body to do what I want. It doesn't want to stay up ridiculously late, skip meals and then carry on cycling at 20mph. But sometimes, it's just good to give a little love to your body. After being awake from 6am Fri until 11am Sat, I simply went to bed and slept for almost 9 hours. It was good. Now I'm going to eat something, rinse the filth of this world off, and sleep some more. To wake up to a fabulous christmas morning =) All is well.

I will be online tomorrow as well ;)
