Not much going on around here.  Stink has been in school for several weeks.  I still can’t believe he is in the 5th grade already.  He brought me a nice case of Strep that knocked me on my ass for a week.

I have no schedule on my games lately.  I just play what I feel like, when I feel like it.

Updates Around the Junkyard

As usual, not much going on.  Stink heads to 5th grade in less than a week.  Matt and Becca are having a boy and went off to a concert/festival in Oklahoma City today.  A 15 hour concert pregnant?  I cannot even comprehend that, but good luck, Becca!

My main doctor is undergoing shoulder surgery and will not be working for 6 months, which means my current occupation of doing almost nothing, will now be completely doing nothing.  I am supposed to be taking over another practice for $16 an hour instead of my normal $0.08 a line, but who knows if that will actually work out.  Auntie is on vac. this week in northern California anyway.

Computer had anther random meltdown.  No one knows what caused it still.

Game updates – I lost all my games, Aion, Dead Space, Final Fantasy 3, 7 and 8 and Skyrim.

Sims is fine at least.  I lost a couple of things made from July 19-22 which is where I had to “refresh” my computer too.

Sims 3
Tart ISBI Chapter 2
Parker Alphabetacy Chapter 9
Vinson: Chapter 7, Gen. 9 Chapter 1

Game Updates

I have been really lax in keeping my updates on a regular schedule.

May saw me finally saving what families I could from the February/March hard drive issue.  June saw a lot of Sims 2 being played also.

Sims 3:

On May 10, I recovered the Vinson family.  By June 21, I knew something was wrong with Gemma and put up a poll.  The results are in and a new heiress will be raised and nurtured.

May 18 – Lavender Wishes: Chapter 27 was posted up after having to age everyone up from a year old save I found.

June 15 found Cola-Fizz Tart leaving the ISBI to start a Perfect Genetics Challenge.  So far there are six updates, starting here.

June 26 – Speaking of the Tart ISBI, they have had two updates.  Chapter 1 on June 26 and Chapter 2 just a second ago on July 5.

There is nothing new for the Parker Alphabetacy.  It keeps saying the game was saved with Expansion data no longer found.  I have not added, deleted, or changed anything.  I will get more indepth in fixing it later this month.

Sims 2:

For most of June, I have been doing a Test of Time Challenge for Sims 2 called Time Marches On.  I have about 26 updates for it so far starting with the Croze household.  Currently the generation 2 kids are hitting teen and the generation 3 kids are now being born.

In regards to Sims 4, I see nothing interesting and the rumors and arguments are getting old.  As of right this minute, I will NOT be buying this stupid ass game.

Vinson Update

Yet again, the Vinson’s have an issue.  The family was found on a backup disc from last year.  Gemma went from a college student back to a toddler.  Upon aging up to child, then teen, it became clear that she had lost her genetics completely.

I put up a Poll to have you choose what should be done.  With Sims 4 coming out in a few months, I really want to get this family completed.

Concordia 1 & 2

So, I have been working on my Parker Speedy Alphabetacy and my Midnight Sun Challenge (Post #1031 – Must be registered to view) when I saw the Lavender’s in my save games from last year sometime that was found on an old backup disc.

When I entered that old save, I was happy to note that all buy Johnny had been born.  I forced Ye to have the baby, a boy that I did name Johnny again and then aged up everyone to where they were in the last update.  I put them in the same world as the Parker’s, because I had spent a lot of time on it and I really like the sims I put in there.

Then I realized that story progression was not moving anyone around due to no housing.  I decided to do a series of homes for spares and the townies.

Concordia 1

Space provided for two sims, but you could possibly replace the office area with a nursery if you needed too.  The bedroom does have space for a crib also.
I have a third one in progress.  All are different house types from pseudo-modern to traditional.  I am hoping to do about 10 of these, but who knows how far I will actually get.

New Hard Drive

The new hard drive is in.  Good thing Old Guy keeps this shit laying around collecting dust.  Plus my war with the internet company for the past five years finally culminated in me threatening their very existence about two weeks ago.

They finally came out and found out that I was paying $100 (yes triple digits) for 1 mb (highway robbery) but was only getting 25 kb/s.  They called it an “office mishap”, but now my nvidia driver update only took 30 minutes instead of the 3-4 hours.  I should be back up and simming, work permitting, in the next 24 hours!

Everything and all my blogs are now a total loss.  The light at the end of the tunnel is over at the Tart’s blog.  There are several option on how to proceed with them, so go on over and vote.  I just posted up a new poll while waiting for updates to download.
