Happy New Year!

Hooray! It's 2009 AND my laptop is back online!

I purchased a spare ATI X1400 128MB card from eBay and made the replacement myself. I was recently all up in the innards of my laptop to clean some fans, so it was easy enough to repeat the steps from memory and swap out the dead part. It will be a hit to the gaming performance of the system, but now that the laptop is no longer my primary gaming PC, this shouldn't impact me too much.

I've been having a great holiday! Lisa and I took a weekend trip to Asheville to knock out some wedding items and for some nice time together. We wanted to personally scope out some hotels in town for recommending to friends and relatives, sample some of the local brewery options, and get some more details from the BBQ restaurant we want to cater our reception. The BBQ vendor was still closed for the holidays... two outta three ain't bad.

We did find some great hotels and learned that just about any hotel in town is 15 minutes max from the event location. We will be putting our findings on our wedding website, which will be linked soon in our Save the Date cards. From there, you will be able to find details about the wedding and RSVP. We will also send out a more formal invitation in the late spring or early summer.

At least we are now in the year of our wedding! Woohoo!

  1. Nice to hear the wedding news. Uncle Doug's ears will perk when he hears that you've been scoping out the brewery options.

    We're planning on heading down with the 5th wheel and have started to look into campgrounds around the wedding location. If anyone you know has any recommendations let us know. If you they don't that's fine 2, there are two that look good.

    Have fun with the wedding planning!
