Heh, Tech Goodness  
Managed to hook up my TV as a second monitor. Will be nice to watch video stuff that way.

You know I bought this nice fancy computer and I have yet to do anything with it. I can hook the cable up to it and watch movies and burn them to dvd, I can hook up my camcorder and convert the vhs/c tapes to dvd, etc. I would like to say I have not had the time to mess with it but in all honesty I am too computer stupid to figure it out. LOL

Re: gotta love dual and 3 monitor video cards
Ooooooh, yes. Just nice to be able to watch my DivX movies and stuff on the TV, instead of trying to gather folks around my desk.

Brian eventually wants to integrate our entire home entertainment center with our computer, then get a big giant plasma screen. Muah, we'll never leave the house again....

RADEON 9600 vid card has VGA, S-Video, and DVI outputs. My flatscreen is a VGA hookup, and I rummaged around in my "box o' cords" until I found a S-Video-to-Composite (female) connector. Ran it (plus a set of Composite jacks) to the RCA input jacks on my VCR, and booyah. Once I hit Radio Shack or something to find a headphone-to-Composite (female), I'll plug it all into the sound card, and the TV will run the sound, as well...useful for showing videos and DivX movies to people (much easier than crowding around my desk).

All in all, a second screen on my TV, and I can have it "on' as I choose by selecting the "Video-2 In" on the VCR, but can still play my tapes/DVDs as normal, without hooking and unhooking the cables.

Hi archmage,

May I please use the icon "Former Nun" for this LJ account? I quite like it. I found it at your website HERE.

Thanks for your consideration,
Sister Mary

Well, that was made custom for nyxluna, so it has her name on it. I could probably make one just for you, though, if you like.

That would be wonderful! I have been looking for a naughty pop-art kind of nun image for this LJ. What are your terms?

Thanks again,
Sister Mary

Anything in particular you want it to say/do?

Terms? If the mood strikes you to make me a fansign, that's more than enough...'course, I'll do the icon even if ya don't. ;)

No, nothing in particular. Just a nice striking all-purpose kind of naughty nun, thanks. If it looks cool, "Sister Mary" text would be just fine.

Terms? If the mood strikes you to make me a fansign, that's more than enough

I'm not sure what a fansign is, though I'm more than happy to comply once I do know. Thanks again!

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it!

Though I'm still not sure about a fansign, I will put up a large "thank you for the fabulous icon, archmage!" in my journal in the bio part of the user info panal!

Once again, my most sincere thanks!

*L*, glad you like it. No worries, just use it in good health.

I glanced at your user pix, and it looks like the icon is not animated. Did you save it to your computer and re-upload it to your pix?

Try this, delete the one you have in your user pix, and when you go to add the user pic, choose "from URL" and use this:

Thanks so much!

I used a much older computer last night to down- and upload the icon. Now that I think about, this computer hasn't, thus far, recognized animated icons. So I'll get on a newer computer later today and resave the icon. Thanks again for the icon- I'm excited to know that it's animated!

Okay- I just tried again on this computer, following your directions- and I'll go and take a look using the other one shortly!

Yep, working now. Enjoy!
