I bought myself a copy of the game Black & White on Friday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it up & running on Friday evening. Although the systems requirements insert in the box of the game said that it supported the Voodoo Banshee chipset, this turns out not to be the case. I found this out–much to my disgust– when I started scouring the web for info on Saturday morning.
An angry letter to EA followed.
(But then later in the day we went out, and I got myself a nice new ATI Radeon with 64Mb of DDR memory. Very tasty.)
After the computer shopping, we took the bus to Kinnaird Park, and bought a pram at Mothercare. The, we indulged ourselves with a final evening out before B arrives. We had dinner at “Frankie and Bennie’s” (which used to be the Deep Pan Pizza Company), and then saw 15 Minutes at the Cinema.
It still doesn’t seem quite real that we won’t be able to just do that kind of thing, without any forethought and planning, any more.
