Yesterday was a bit of a lull in the activity around here, but today kicked it up again and things got moving along swiftly.
Most of the afternoon was blown attempting to get mom's new computer set up a bit more. Previously I'd used a virtualbox install of Windows XP to allow her to access certain programs without the UAC stuff that came around later on, but this time around those programs aren't running. I spent a lot of the time attempting to upgrade or otherwise fix the XP install to get them to work, and they just wouldn't.
After a bit of searching around, I found some software for later Windows systems that permits these programs to run properly without requiring UAC permissions. Thus the plan has changed, and the virtualbox stuff is getting traded for running the same software in Windows 8 directly.
The rest of my day was spent getting work done on various projects, notable Emo, Cast Mine Thrive, Necros Cavern and the planned revamp of my main website.
So yes, things are back in full swing again.
The link of the day is a special video for Valentine's Day: the full sing-a-long version of Love is in Bloom.
