The video card that odinkar sent me arrived! I plugged it into my computer and wow, does Never Winter Nights look and act so much better. I still can't get past the one point without the game crashing, but the part that I can do is fantastic? Thanks a lot man!

In other good news, our stock went up another $1.37 per share. It's now at $30.06 (or 19.99% profit). In normal circumstances I would be selling at $30.59 to get my 22% profit, but I've only had this stock for a week, so I'm hanging on to it a little bit to see how much I can get. I would like for the stock to get to $40.30 per share. Then when I sell it I will have doubled the money I started with on Scottrade back in January. Not bad for three months effort. Also, the Royal Bank of Scotland stock paid dividends today. RBS J series is paying 8% dividends. I figure we should get an extra $10 invested in this. Not big, but it adds up. I expect I'll get a letter from the bank we bought the stock from to give me details. A friend in my martial arts class recommends that I eventually move into a nice mutual fund or IRA or something. But why fool with 3-5% per year profits when I can get 630% or more doing what I'm doing?

I'm probably boring everyone with all this stock stuff, but it's so cool to me. The prospect of being a millionaire in a few years is exciting. So far my strategy is working well. 22% profit on every trade (with the occasional 12% or 60%) while cutting any loss at 7% is very nice. I wish I had started this years ago.
Current Mood: very good

I'm glad the card works. I was a little worried about it because it hasn't been run in a while, but coolness.

What part of the game does it crash at? When I played it, my copy kept crashing at a point also, but it's been a while since I played the game, and I can't remember where it was exactly.

Yeah, it works great! I've tried Aliens vs Predator 2 and it looks great. Also Diablo II. Very nice.

I'm playing the Shadows of Undrentide module. I keep crashing right after you get turned to stone by the medusa chick. There is a cut scene of you getting found by lizard guys and then you get a slave collar put on you by the head lizard dude and he tells you that you will return to normal shortly and to see him in the other room. Then when it goes to load the next part so you can start playing, it crashes.

Ah, I never got the expansions for NWN. I always mean to, but keep forgetting to. And I miss AvP2. I used to have it, but I lost the disks a while ago. That was a good game.
