Had a busy weekend and didn’t get around to trying to think up a decent April Fools joke to post on the site. Friday evening was spent working on a PC repair for a family friend. A recent storm had blown out their power supply, video card, and motherboard so I helped them order a new motherboard and video card and motherboard (they’d already bought a new power supply) and swapped it all out on Friday, got the system staged and ready to return on Saturday.
On Saturday, in addition to returning the PC, I spent the afternoon at the Big Red Monkey’s Spankhaus LAN party that he holds every few weeks. We played a lot of Unreal Tournament 2004, Call of Duty 2 and some really old arena combat game called Rune. I never did get a handle on how to play Rune, which probably came as a relief to the rest of the guys as I was seriously dominating them in CoD2. I was even trying to handicap myself a bit by sticking mostly to the bolt-action rifles, which aren’t my favorite weapons in the game.
Sunday Anne and I went out to lunch and then to Costco and signed up for a business membership. Not that we have much of a business to sign up with, just my side-line PC support stuff, but it allows a bit more flexibility so we took it. Then spent an hour or two wandering the aisles and drooling over all the crap we’d like to buy once we manage to buy a house of our own. We also picked up a few items we needed while we were there and then headed home. The rest of the evening was spent investigating mods for CoD2 to put on the server I’m running and then doing some reading before heading to bed at a decent time to cope with the time change.
So that’s it for me. What’d you guys do this past weekend?
