Well, I don't know if the writer's block is gone or not.  The "big guns" I mentioned in the last post was going to be a full-on episodic review of Rio Rainbow Gate! Ep01, but I discovered that I couldn't bring myself to do it.  The reactions I had in the first five minutes were enough to put that thought out of my mind: cold sweats, shaking, nausea, and the sudden urge to hurt someone... anyone... and a sudden bout of self-loathing for willingly attempting to inflict the show upon myself and others.  I just couldn't do it.

I ordered another graphics card, a GT240 by SPARKLE, this evening.  1GB of GDDR5 should make it pretty good for a low-power card (it draws its power from the PCIe slot only; no extra connections needed).  It's probably the best I can do considering my system is five years old and its design only allows for a single-slot card.  I could have put a 9800GT in... with liberal use of a dremel tool (which I don't have) and a willingness to hack bits out of the back of my case (which I also don't have).

I have Monday and Tuesday off.  The reason for that will be revealed soon enough.

With any luck, I'll actually get the PBY post done on Monday.  I've run through it enough in my head that it should be fairly straightforward, though time-consuming, to write... except for one thing.  I can't seem to get it to flow well.  Eh, either I'll figure it out or I won't.  It'll be a voyage of discovery for us all.

Suddenly, the Hosho appears!

I'm going to bed.

1 I'm sorry that the PBY post turned out to be such a chore. I suggest it as a subject partly because I thought it would be easy and fun to write.

2 It could be very easy to write, Steven.  A simple recitation of facts, PBYs found the Bismarck and started the Battle of Midway, hurr durr... voila, it's done.  Simple!

But I'd rather dig up some things that are actually interesting.  Even that should be fairly easy, but I think the timing has been crepe all the way along.

The Cat's a fascinating plane, and it deserves good writing.  I'm just not sure I've got it in me these days to sit down for four hours and write.  But I'm still gonna give it a shot.
