I'm just a guy at a house

It's a long story. :)

I'm very very late to the game, but I just started playing The Witcher: Enhanced edition on Steam. I have a quest called "She's No Early Bird" which is to get Vesna back to her grandma's house.

I found an old topic online here http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/950892-the-witcher-enhanced-edition/46132576 that says you can't heal her. Well, got news for you boys, all you have to do its go and meditate for an hour at a fire and she's all healed up. Problem solved!

(and Hello! I haven't posted on here for a long long time!)

I am alive! New job, moved to a new house in the country, doing well. It is so dark here at night! Biwions and biwions of stars!!!

If you ever lose your Windows 8 password, here's a good way to get back into your computer. Of course, you'll lose all your files, but if you're dumb enough to forget your password, that's the price you pay. http://gateway-us.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/27003 Use the following steps to reset Windows 8: From the login screen, click the power icon in the lower right corner of the screen. While holding Shift, click Restart. Click Troubleshoot. Click Reset Your PC. Click Next. The system will reboot and begin Preparing to Reset the PC. At the Reset your PC screen, click Just remove my files. Click Reset.

In case you are ever trying to get your WMP54G to be detected by a new freshly installed Windows 7, just plug in the wired network cable and have it search for the driver in windows update. It detects as some kind of Dell wireless card, and works great. I spent hours looking for a driver before plugging in the cable for something else and being pleasantly surprised that it found it right away.

I haven't yet written about my new job at The Children's Shelter (which I started September 17, 2012.) I need to do that. What I'm here today to do though is remind myself about clonezilla.org, a free program that does the same thing as ghost or acronis.

I've been trying for weeks to get my Canon CanoScan N670U scanner working with Windows 7. Since there's no Windows 7 Win 7 driver for it, I tried instruction from here (http://www.sevenforums.com/drivers/47041-canoscan-n670u-no-driver.html) which advised compatibility mode. I couldn't get that to work. I've also used the wonderful VueScan program at work (http://www.hamrick.com), but didn't want to buy it for home, even though I'm almost sure that spending the $40 would have solved my problem.

So, here's my solution to make the Canon CanoScan N670U scanner work with Windows 7.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IT DOWNLOAD THE CanoScan LIDE 200 DRIVER FOR WINDOWS 7 FROM http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_lide200#DriversAndSoftware

THAT'S IT!!!!!!! Weeks of tweaking and work, and I finally figured it out. Ahhhhh. Thanks for the no help, Canon. It would be ever so helpful if you would post that little tidbit of info on the N670U driver download page.


I'm back to playing Mabinogi, which I love.

In the game, there are several acronyms that people ask about.

S> and B> = Selling and Buying (the person either has something for sale or want to bu something)

NMO = Note Me Offers

ES = Enchant Scroll (as in Goddess ES, one of the best enchants you can get)

k = thousand (as in B> Goddess ES 500k) (Of course, no one would sell it for 500,000 gold unless they were a dope)

c/o = Current Offer (as in S> Spaika Silver Gloves c/o 1mil, which means Selling those gloves and the current offer is 1 million gold)

See you in the game!

I tried a Celsius drink today (200mg of caffeine) and it was VILE. Friends, this crap is not worth the $1 per can I paid.

At Rudy's BBQ tonite, they had a lovely red wall...
