Well, that's what's going on to the best of my 'mebrance.

Characters not mentioned are either asleep or trying to do something at last check.

Some, I just do not remember; my PMs are gone. Claude had a clue about the mud, but I never knew where Lighthawk wanted him to go when he left the room; barring his return, I'll just have to guess (aka make stuff up).

Well, I think I just earned some insanity points while trying to port everything from my old PC to my new laptop. Files were too big to e-mail; since wifey had co-opted every damn flash drive in the house, I went to get a new one. However, my old PC gave me an "underpowered port" message when I plugged it in. NP, I thought, as the new drive came with a bonus 2GB of online storage. Well, when I went to set that up both my old PC and my new laptop seemed to think that I was running the setup .exe file from my hard drive instead of from the flash drive - which is apparently a big "no-no." Finally I decided to register the cloud that was available from the manufacturer of my laptop, only to get three "please register now" e-mails. The fourth time took, but then I had to upload from XP and sync to Seven, and then FINALLY install Byakhee on my desktop of the new computer in order to read the .coc character sheet files. I didn't even bother porting the Byakhee zipped file, do I need it if I have the rulebook .pdf and the Byakhee folder?

Anyway, I'll have new orders up soon.

The cloud works like a charm, it's just that Asus' registration process failed. Now that it's running (and I got two extra GB for nothing,) it's as easy as selecting a file one place and opening it somewhere else.

Cthulu isn't my thing. If it was Cthulupunk I'd be all over it.

Talk to Tsu and see if you can run your guys in that fashion. We are giving a bit of room on the rules anyways.

Recall that the same characters will carry over into future installments (provided they survive this one), set in future eras. As you can tell by the equipment in May Manor, I'm already running it in a quasi-steampunk fashion. Within some limits, aye, but I'm certainly willing to include fantastic elements; there are living gods involved in the mythos, along with aliens and crazy dreamscape worlds.

Not really steampunk, cyberpunk. Shadowrun meets Call of Cthulu or just straight up GURPS Cthulupunk.

Okay, so much for tonight. I just got home from work. I'll take care of orders as soon as I get home from school tomorrow.

Never mind; I made the time for it after all. Let's rock and roll. :)

A reminder to everyone that I won't make any rolls, including Spot Hidden, unless asked to specifically.

You are a clever bastard, sir. I feel like I'm putting together a jigsaw puzzle with all the pieces, but without any picture on the box. I must say in my defense, I hit on something that's either very astute, or completely and utterly off the mark.
