Clocking Off

Astonishingly, my friend Nod is now on his way back to Dorridge, having finished his time at university. To him I say this: DON’T BE SO BLOODY STUPID, YOU HAVE AT LEAST ANOTHER YEAR LEFT. Lynsey came back last week, and I was in denial then too. There’s just no way this is actually happening. Three years cannot possibly have passed that quickly; don’t be ridiculous. The strange thing is, if you say ‘it’s three years since we finished college’, I can believe it. My sense of time is all messed up…

In other news, Darfeyn Quinn keeps getting his ass kicked by the undead, so he’s going to have to team up with some other heroes soon if he wants to progess any further. Oooh…teamwork. I…er…he’s never been very good at teamwork. Still, it has to be done. Now that some of the enemies have slightly fancier defences I’m starting to notice that the graphics are stuttering. I haven’t even got the settings maxed out! This is the first time my GF3 has struggled with anything (without being silly about it), so I think the time may have come to replace it. I’m thinking a Sapphire 9600XT with Half-Life 2 coupon may be the way to go, although the 9800 Pros are pretty cheap these days…
