Looks like I won't be playing much of anything for a while. Yesterday afternoon, I began seeing screen corruption and lock-ups consistent with overheating. After inspecting my 9800 GT's fan assembly, rolling back drivers, and jacking the fan up to 100% output, nothing corrected the issue. Worse yet, the card never detected anything above 78° C, which should be well within operating temperatures.

I'll continue monkeying with it, but I don't expect anything to make a difference; I think the hardware's just dying, so I yanked the card and am now using onboard graphics. This means my gaming performance has gone from shaky but playable to utterly pathetic.

So... guess there's no time to start writing the next book like the present. Slay a few zombies for me.
When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

If I'm not away/busy on Steam, there's a good chance I'll want to play. Just hit me up.
