    New soundcard is in! Even better, I was able to install it and have it operational without any aggravation at all. Put in, power on, download drivers, reboot, done. I was bracing for a struggle in light of the fact that compatibility with Windows 7 seems to be a major nagging point with sound cards now. The worst part, such as it was, is that I had to play with settings to get it off of this weird super-echo stadium like setting which I don't recall toggling but was there never the less. Once that ...

    Today's intended dinner was grilled hamburgers, but nobody realized in time that we were out of charcoal. Oh well. I also purchased some Astroglide for use on my treadmill belt - I'm quite sure that the $8 I spent there will last substantially longer than what I would have to spend comparatively with the company who made that bullshit lube kit. I made a point to have the item paid for at a registered tended by an old immigrant woman. I really didn't feel like explaining what my intended use with ...

    I have some returns resolved and will undertake the actual filing procedures tonight, after this. Once nice thing about my intended career, a trend which I hope continues as the years advance, is that I never have to leave my house to get the actual work done. Land travel is a long way from becoming inexpensive again. Speaking of tax returns, I had to call the IRS recently about Form 851, because the XSD file associated with it has content laid out in a way which seems to have several data points ...

    The cat has a routine established with me where he wants me to use a cat wand to play with him. He'll bring the wand over and drop it by me and squeak at me (he doesn't have a very loud voice). If I don't respond, he'll keep going and going and eventually start poking at me with his claws through the chair I'm sitting at now. When I have heard enough and go play, he'll chase the toy down and eventually get it, at which point he'll return to my empty chair and drop the toy for me to move it again, ...

    I'm still not 100% satisfied with the sync I have with LB. I've just tried out several of the video options and I am not very happy with how the audio matches with the visual response. The experience is very different when the game is in HD mode or not, too - something about it makes it display very differently in terms of color vibrancy and refresh, the former of which at least I wouldn't have expected with the change.

    After much deliberating I will return to the lowest rest HD, ...

    The wife's coworker's machine had 512MB of RAM inside the box, using two of four slots. DDR3200 chips are antiquated enough to keep me from buying some off of the shelf at a store, for $35 per 1GB chip. Not terrible, but I'm betting that she doesn't have $70 on the ready so I'll be expecting to take the payment in weekly installments.

    Between working on that and some tax research, I have another late start here, so let's get going already.

    Still in 6th Style.

    Managed to not have to work in rain for most of the day. I also get to look into sprucing up a computer being used by one of my wife's coworkers. I've seen the machine before and it was typical low end emachine junk, but she didn't do anything beyond normal Internet use so I wouldn't think that to be a big deal. She informs my wife today that her PC has "run out of virtual memory". What a catastrophe. I hope the nearby CompUSA has RAM which is ancient enough for her machine to use. Yesterday ...

    A rapid downpour came and went, and I had the luxury of watching it happen from under my roof. Hopefully my luck will continue through the weekend.

    I never had an entry for Voltage in Extra Mode before. I wonder why. The program also didn't load Starmine yesterday, so I might as well get that out of the way.

    Resuming 5th Style in Extra Mode otherwise.

    Code:
    			ex.p/f	pg	gr	gd	bd	pr	combo	nc	onc	%+ 	date
    starmine		1471.F	0567	0337	0187	0013	0121	0158

    I had to take the time to develop a new Form for my Individual filing procedures, which thankfully I have just finished and didn't take me as long as I was predicting. I cannot rest on laurels, though, and I have to keep moving between a few returns to do before things get too late. Neither should take tremendous amounts of time but this is nothing to dawdle about. Also had one of my better takes on grilling bratwurst for dinner just a bit ago.

    I was halfway into 4th Style in Extra ...

    Another late start.

    Still getting used to the timing on this.

    Extra Mode in LunarBeat. Some 3rd and 4th.

    And the day when I can use LB is today! It isn't 100% perfect yet but at least progress forthcoming and rapid. And while one major issue affects me for playing Double, Extra Mode is at least playable by me now and since it is an entirely new algorithm, that means that I have to essentially recreate my entire score list from scratch, because the records won't be compatible with the old LR2 EX mode. Fine with me. I was wanting to change the data layout a bit and this is the perfect time to do so. ...
