    Blueberry Flan flavor coffee now.. odd smell but it does taste like blueberries...

    edit: despite having checked 'keep me logged in', the forum software logged me out.  If I wrote software like this I'd be unemployed...

    ...it still does that to me.  It's much worse on the mobile app.

    Well, I'll take it less personally - I was sure it was after me!

    ...well the new HDD and W7 Pro OEM arrived today.  So this weekend it's time to "get under the bonnet" and soup up the old work system to make it as much of a a high performance machine as I can.  24 GB of memory should keep most render jobs from dumping to virtual memory and with 4 GB of VRAM I can do GPU rendering for smaller works like character proofs as well as scenes which involve easy to composite layered rendering, which will save time.  I'll even be able to use HDRIs as I'll be able to use Iray View mode to position the dome and scene elements a little easier.  Time to get those Iray HDRI skies off the wishlist.

    Already consolidated my desktop so it will be easy to transfer files over to a temp backup drive Have all the installers for my programmes in a separate folder ready for a clean install of my programmes once the new drive and OS is installed. Fortunately all my content runtimes and libraries are on a different drive so I won't have to deal with reinstalling and rebuilding them.

    Considering a 6 core 3.06 GHz (3.46 GHz turbo) Xeon X5675 as the last upgrade (uses the same socket as my i7 930) to get 4 more threads for Carrara, and a little more boost in the CPU speed. for under 50$.  That will be as much as I can do for the old girl but should give me the overhead I need for a while longer.

    ...been cold and very wet here all day. Only made it to the mid 40s with heavy rain most of the day.  More of the same on tap for tomorrow. Supplies dwindling but a market trip may have to wait until Friday afternoon at the earliest when this big mass of wet moves off to the east.

    Hey!  We have our own big mass of wet right now!   cheeky

    We finally had a few day break in the rain after raining for almost 3 weeks straight.

    Good thing!  Another week or so and you'd have needed an ark!  laugh

    When you reinstall the DIM, and point it to all the paths to your libraries, you will see (probably) thousands of items in the "Ready to install" tab.  There should be a way to tell the DIM that those items are already installed.  However, I don't think it would work.  Part of installing the items is adding them to the database for the smart content.  So, you have to let it reinstall them.

    If you save DIM's ManifestFiles folder from the old install, putting those files in the new ManifestFiles folder will tell DIM what was installed.  You can re-import metadata in either DIM or DS to restore the database entries.

    As long as we're talking about getting new computers... Remember I saved $470 (actually closer to $600 after taxes, auction fees, shipping) at the on-line auction a few days ago by not buying my heart's desire.  That means I could buy perhaps 1/3 of a proper computer. frown  I should'a bought the bronze statue of Perseus and Pegasus.  The joy would last longer. sad (regret has arrived)

    Complaint:  For me it's gonna be an interesting next week.  Sunday is my birthday.  Two days later I go in for surgery to ream out my willy (again).  Two days later it's Thanksgiving and I'm not sure I'll feel like walking upright, being jolly and being conversational at the big meal.  Then the next day is Black Friday.  Wheeee,... fun week.

    Thanks.  Whenever I want to remind myself how old I am I just take a look a Prince Charles.  He's just 5 days older than me.  My mother used to tell the story that when she was near term pregnant with me she heard on the radio that Princess Elizabeth took a walk in her court garden despite being pregnant.  My mother quiped back that "Hell, I was out weeding my garden". devil

    ...I pretty much know what I have installed so I'm just going to ignore that and not waste a day or more having it reinstall everything.  The only installs I will do is if there is anything new in the update section and plugins as the latter reside on the C Drive with the programme. Also still running 4.9 which has been experiencing issues with knowing the database is up and running even though it appears in Task Manager as "running" and the port number shows up in the the Daz programme preferences.  I really don't use Smart Content anyway as it takes up too much display real estate and I have a custom runtime library setup on D: which makes it simple to locate content (particularly older content and freebies).

    So lots of people are talking about me?  They ARE out to get me!

    ...I think they're out to get me, at least those behind the wheel seem to be. 

    So I headed over to the local Safeway a few blocks away to get a couple things to tie me over for next couple days.  On my way back I come to an intersection with a one way street. needless to say I still look both ways and it was good I did as this car pulls out of an enclosed car park about 2/3rds the way down the block turns the wrong way, accelerates, and heads right at me (appearing that it would not stop) as I am in the crosswalk. I put both hands up to make them stop (thinking is it just a wayward motorist who wasn't aware of the fact) and then pointed in the opposite direction while shouting they were going the wrong way.  When I again point in the proper direction the driver rolled down her window (a young well dressed lady in her late 20s/early 30s) and in an impatient voice said she was only going to the cross street I was on where she wanted to turn, which meant she was doing this deliberately (makes me wonder how many times she previously pulled this stunt).  I again reiterated she was going the wrong way after which she rolled forward nearly nudging my leg with her bumper. After I stepped up on the opposite curb she wheeled around made her turn, then turned left at the next intersection (with no signal and rolling through the stop sign there) only to get stuck at the by a red light at the intersection another block down (a minor karmic victory I guess)

    What really irritated me was her total carelessness, laziness, and attitude like it was her privilege to break the law whenever she felt like it (and possibly injure or even kill someone who wasn't expecting it).  I mean she had an engine, power steering, she was are inside dry and warm (it began raining on my way home), probably listening to her favourite tunes. Was it that difficult and strenuous to drive around the block the right way to get to where she wanted to go?

    ...sheesh kids these days, no respect for their elders or the law.

    Ugh that doesn't sound enjoyable at all.  Used to remember that season back in Wisconsin. The only trouble, there is many of the other hunters include a case of beer and/or bottle of  whiskey with their hunting gear.  Even wearing day glow orange doesn't make you necessarily safe.

    ...now that could possibly make a toddy using hot cider.  My one concern though is it "real" cinnamon they use or "arôme artificiel"?
