The NT Thing

Wednesday, July 13, 2005

Greetings all. These past few nights, my friend and I have been designing video games, designing pen-and-paper games, and playing games. We also ate many, many items of food, and consumed much water.

Last night, we had another friend over to play a three-way networked game. Unfortunately, one of the computer was running mean old legacy Windows 98, not a good choice for networking. To set it up, we needed the 98 setup disks, which weren’t immediately available. Therefore, we geeks decided to wipe the computer and install Windows NT Service Pack 5. It would have been a piece of cake, but we needed a bootable floppy with CD support. We tried every solution under the sun, except for downloading a boot disk (my friend’s dad doesn’t like us downloading stuff). After two or so hours, we gave up and ate some pepperoni.

Ah, let’s see, what else. It’s rained alot here the past few days, a recurring theme for my summer visits to TN. However, we don’t mind playing in the rain, so it doesn’t seem to matter. Hurricane Dennis, you can’t stop us! Mwa ha ha!

That’s all for today. If you need any help, just drop me a line.
