Been a nasty few days, tech-wise. My computer is crashtastic and no one seems to be able to figure out the problem, or a solution. Driver errors galore, so I uninstalled, reinstalled, still crashes of my comp. Finally did a system error check that literally took all night. I also broke down and bought a couple of RAM chips for my motherboard. Right now I have only four gigs of RAM, but once the chips arrive and I put 'em in I'll have eight. I hope that solves at least some of the problem. I may have to take the comp in to a specialist to get it looked at.
I help manage a club for my friend in SL, who's a vampire lord. I also DJ when I can, but because of my computer troubles and an unreliable connection I really can't do that as I would like. Last night the DJ decided to screw the club and my friend over by quitting without telling anyone, de-friending me for no reason, de-friending the club owner for no reason, and leaving me to DJ at the last minute. The scheduled hostess was also a no-show, though she says her comp (which is really old) was experiencing difficulties and couldn't be on. So I DJed and hosted, and my comp crashed something like five or six times during the event. Only two people showed up, but fortunately they were generous tippers and so I and the one staff member on duty didn't waste our time.
So yeah, needless to say I wasn't trilled, but the club owner was pissed. He banned the DJ from the land and this morning he ejected her from the group. On top of that a serial griefer tried to visit the club but apparently found himself pre-emptively banned. No, this isn't the person I wrote about in my previous entry. It was someone else, someone who is known and isn't liked by the club owner. Seems I'm not the only one who dislikes him. Then again, I've never met anyone who does like him. He's more annoying and a drama queen than anything else. I just put him on mute and washed my hands of him, especially after I found out he tried to break up my friends' marriage.
Speaking of mute lists, I wiped all but one avatar from it. I realized I've got way too many people on it and really, there's no point in my keeping them there. I don't socialize with any of them and they don't socialize with me.
So yeah, that's the week so far. The high point is that my SL girlfriend and I have been able to spend more quality time together. I love you, Rose!
