    Long story. However, the short version is that I am a psyche major and have to demonstrate at least 52 different mental disorders, in writing, in a 26 post journal (every other week starting today and ending December 24th) while keeping true to the Joker's overall feel from the Arkham games. Trust me, it ain't as easy as you may think.

    Wow. Good luck with that. The joker is pretty crazy though, so it could be harder.

    So, I didn't realize the first mini-challenge was 'cold' but in next week's update Ben will be both physically and emotionally cold. It's like I'm a mind reader or something.

    So after giving it a break for a few years, I'm going to give this another go.

    I kind of want that challenge. Currently, I'm just demonstrating two disorders in writing, with traits from others. Though, it's just for fun, as I'm not a psyche major. Thought about going into psychiatry, but not so sure what I'd do with the degree, and I am not financially able to gear up for a four-year hitch.

    Well, if he's in Arkham, you don't have to have The Joker demonstarate all the disorders, right? I mean, you could have him talk about someone in a neighboring cell or something? And of course, he can always call his arch enemy, the Batman an obsessive compulsive... obsessed with bringing justice to Gotham and compulsively beating up gangsters :p

    Is it okay if I do the challenge this year using the diary I started before the move last year? It's a story I've enjoyed writing and would like to finish anyway, but it would probably help to be on some kind of schedule.

    Disaster has struck! My computer has died! I am trying to get it fixed but I don't know how long it will take. Hopefully it's still under warranty and it'll just be a case of getting the bits replaced. As far as I can tell it's the PSU that's gone, so nothing major and just a simple case of swapping it out, but it will mean I can't start this until the computer has been rebuilt.

    Gee that's no fun.

    If it's a desktop, changing out the PSU takes about ten minutes. Changing out memory ten minutes.

    Laptop on the other hand... yeah it'll be a couple of days. First they need to diagnose the problem. How old is the computer and we'll work out a later date for you if you want.

    Most of the time the Power supply is the culprit. faulty memory can also cause a computer not to boot up. a good power surge will destroy the motherboard...

    I haven't written a diary for a long time but a plot bunny just bit me 'ouch' I started it on the 7th but just remembered to tell you.

    (Beyond) A Man is an Island to Himself by Lea-El updated 1/10/13

    I'm sending a pm with the information.

    I built it in August, so it's not that old. I tried everything I could think of, and it does seem like it's the PSU. I don't know how long it'll take for the replacement thing to work out, but it could be a week or two. I'll know more tomorrow, I hope.

    Palpatine VSD? Mace Windu? Though his will probably have M* and *U every other sentence heh. Ha Mace is probably the most PG role Jackson has ever played.

    Let's see. Abeloth? 0_o Ventress? A clone/trooper? Darth Vader's TIE Advanced Fighter? A Ryn gypsy?

    Good job I ordered it all together! All the details are in one email. ;)

    3GHz Core i5 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    GeForce 9800GT
    24x DVD±RW with DL & RAM
    500W PSU

    There are three HDDs, but I can't remember the sizes. Probably over 1TB in all.

    But yeah, I'll post as soon as I have news.

    Hope your computer recovers, moosemousse.

    Okay, I'm gonna chop off my fingers if I write one more diary after this one! Aqua Diary in the non-SW board. I'm a Pokemon nerd who likes the Misty/Brock ship.

    I'm hoping to get a new laptop this week. Too poor to build my own, so I just get an off-the-shelf model with the specs I like.

    impressive
    3GHz Core i5 CPU Intel or AMD?
    8GB DDR3 RAM very nice, Kingston or patriot?
    GeForce 9800GT self explanatory ;)
    24x DVD±RW with DL & RAM --- Sony or samsung?
    500W PSU I would've put in a 650...
    too bad you can't take the PSU apart and replace the fuse.....
