Hooray!

Hockey is back. Hooray!!!

I had a very low-key Christmas/holidays that involved a lot of Elder Sign (the dice/card game). Christmas Eve tradition of going to Roz's place. Elder Sign was a big hit! Then watched The Hobbit with lastcatastrophe. The higher frame rate was kind of jarring at first and gave the movie a video game look but I got used to it and thought it worked well for the action scenes. But perhaps detracted from the whole impressive cinematic look that was there in the LotR movies? I also saw it in 3D, so I don't know if that made a difference. Then we went back to her place and played three games of Elder Sign, hehe!

In celebration of the end of the lockout, I bought a new computer! Well, actually it's because I haven't upgraded it in 6 years and it's been spontaneously shutting down more often, so this seemed like a good time to do it.

The parts:
  • AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz CPU
  • Corsair Vengeance 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 1600 RAM
  • ASUS M5A97 AMD 970 motherboard
  • XFX HD-677X-ZAF4 Radeon HD 6770 video card
  • Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA 2 hard drive

And I'm finally making the leap to Windows 7! Not liking the look of Windows 8.
