Oblivion Installation
By Dwip November 22, 2009 at 7:58 pm Comments (5) RSS Feed for this post

Because I was giving some Oblivion advice to Conner over at Samson’s, and realized I didn’t really have a useful and easy to follow Oblivion install guide, which may be of use to some people, including me because I’m dumb and forget things. I’ll talk about general setup stuff first, then I’ll reprise my load order listing from here in some detail. More after the jump:

Steam Interfaces Are Ruining Everything
By Dwip November 17, 2009 at 5:42 am Comments (2) RSS Feed for this post

With a nod towards this blog, which has nothing whatsoever to do with anything but has the coolest title ever. A couple of interface quirks I’d like to talk about for a bit here.  Two of them are quite brief: 1. Dear GIMP people. I would enjoy using your program more if it included such basic features as line tools and basic shape drawing.  Please also note that if you have to resort to the level of elitist sarcasm shown in this tutorial (official, no less), you have failed.  On that same note, I would enjoy using your program more if your user interface didn’t suck the good suck, but let’s stick with things that are changable, here. 2. I had […]

The Gathering Storm
By Dwip November 11, 2009 at 7:34 pm Comments (0) RSS Feed for this post

Because I didn’t actually get around to doing this prior to the blog update, so let us discuss for a moment that latest in the many Wheel of Time novels, the Gathering Storm, taking our cues from the Tor.com reviews by the esteemable Leigh Butler, in both spoiler and non-spoiler versions. Here’s my basic point about the thing: Having recieved it from Amazon thanks to the labors of my most excellent girlfriend, who indulges my addictions despite not quite getting it, I sat down, read avidly for a couple of hours, reluctantly played D&D until 2 am, then sat down and finished it at 7:30am, ignoring several suggestions by my body that perhaps we could do some of this tomorrow, […]

DLC: Wasteland Edition
By Dwip November 10, 2009 at 12:00 am Comments (6) RSS Feed for this post

My dearest America, it’s time we had a chat. I know that it’s been some time since we’ve talked, but you should know that I’ve been hard at work, doing my part to rebuild our great nation. And I thought I’d let you know, sweet America, about some new opportunities for you to do your part to restore our beautiful country to what it once was. [/President John Henry Eden] Fallout. DLC. All you need to know. [/Three Dog] Because I enjoy some of the characters in Fallout, as you may have noticed. What’s that? You noticed? Well, I try. I do try. Anyway, so I picked up the Fallout Game of the Year Edition, which coincidentally has all five […]

Her Brand New Skin
By Dwip November 5, 2009 at 10:54 pm Comments (3) RSS Feed for this post

Well, I promised you all that eventually, one day, there would be a revamp of the blog using WordPress as opposed to Movable Type, and one that would fix the comments, fix some nav issues, fix some backend issues, provide real plugin support, unite the clans, walk the dog, and cook waffles all at the same time. With the exception of the clan uniting, dog walking, and waffle cooking bits (there were no plugins for these, sadly), I’m happy to note that the day is here. Here’s the parts that will matter to you: 1. New Commenting System Comments work much differently than in days of yore. They’re now completely inline with the posts and have much more robust editing […]
