Bugs

Delayed! My PC's PSU went on the fritz and probably took the motherboard with it. I'm not sure because everything appears to be working well with the new PSU and old MB. The dodgy power corrupted WinXP so that I had to reload it... twice. I'm unwilling to reload everything again until I know for sure that it's all working okay. Luckily all the damage was to C: and not D: where all my render stuff is. I DID lose my freebie Poser5 files, so now I have to d/l them again as soon as I can find the urls they sent, unless one of you nice people have the freebie d/l installation files and can burn them to cd for me. I'll catch up on the strip when I'm sure the m/b is ok, or when I geta new second-hand one. Found them

Anyway.

have this.

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!



You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Shelley

I spent an hour this afternoon super-gluing about 10 short lengths of wire over the crack in Shelley's shell. The wires were placed across the crack, and a small blob of sper-glue was applied to the ends, so now she has some heavy reinforcing across the crack without getting glue inside. Then I sealed it all over with neutral cure sillicone. Hopefully the crack will heal now that it's all held rigidly in place and waterproofed. She still needs at least 6 months R&R. She would have had it by now if she hadn't been let go in April.

Turtles really hate being on their back, I can tell you. Poor Shelley had to endure an hour of it.
