So, farm day. Except that I had to be up and hour earlier than normal, because swanwhite had to be on the other side of the city at an ungodly early hour for an MRI this morning. So, 7am, I'm already getting to the farm...let's just say that I wasn't exactly perky, considering that last night, I couldn't sleep, and was up until 1am.

Let's talk a bit about last night. A couple weeks ago, CoH stopped connecting to the updater. I found how to bypass this, but it was still pretty annoying. Eventually, while I was working with the game's tech support, it just started working again, no one knows why. Well, a few days ago, it happened again. I started working with them again, because I could no longer log in at all (needed the newest patch). Eventually, they suggested a copy all the files from a computer that was updated, and this would apply the patch to my own game. Luckily, chaosreality let me install the game on his machine, update it, and then copy all the files. I made sure it would log in, and then copied those files to my machine...and it STILL wouldn't let me do it. Today, after I got home, I was reading a response to a question I'd made about port blocking over at DSLReports.com, and decided to check to get an error message...and it's working again. I'm glad it's working, but it annoys me not to know what the fuck is happening. it really doesn't seem to be ME at all...ah, who knows.

Anyway, got to the farm early, did some work on the wine (port, which I gotta say is going INCREDIBLY well...yummy stuff!), shovelled a load of bark nuggets, gardened, hauled around a huge old metal trailer, etc. Needless to say, by the middle of the day, I was exhausted and beat. Really should have started work on tearing the old fence down, but didn't feel like working in the drizzle when I was falling asleep as it was.

Yes, Dianna's MRI went fine.

I'm beat, and I'm confused, and I promised Erik I'd build a giant Bionicle with him. Tomorrow, back to life as usual. Oh, side note: the woman I did work for so recently mailed me today with another one-off graphic work offer. not sure if I really wanna do it...and if I do, I think she's gonna balk at what I plan to charge. We'll see.
