Jul. 10th, 2004

We got a letter from the school today saying that (as of June 29) the kindergarten classes are going to be held in the regular elementary school instead of the early childhood center, which is where they've been for years. This is actually a good thing, because it means that Dan can drop them both off in the morning easily. And younger daughter is thrilled to be attending school in the same building as her sister. (The elementary school also has a much better playground, which she did not fail to notice. :)) I'm just wondering how they are going to manage it--I've never noticed empty rooms there, where are they going to put the new classes? And in less than two months, yet!

I'm having Sims issues. :) Skins and so forth have been either crashing the system or else giving me headless people (elder daughter actually rather likes the headless people), so I need to sit down and figure out which I'm missing parts of. I'm pretty sure it's skins that are doing it, anyway. Luckily I had planned on spending a lot of time on the computer this weekend (Dan is out of town at a SCA event) anyway. Not too much time, though.

We got the Porter translation of Beowulf today; we have the Heaney, it will be interesting to compare the two.

I'm giving up pop again, I think--too much sugar, too much sodium. I've done it before, and it doesn't take too long until you don't really want it anymore.

Did you not get file cop?

It's not available for the Mac, and I haven't been able to find anything similar. It's not awful to check things manually--just time-consuming.

Ohhhh....that sucks. Shoot. We'll just make sure that your not DLing anything for other expansion packs, (I did for a while, thinking "What the hell, let's see if it works anyway") and it often doesn't.)

Headless Sims- How cool is THAT? :-)
My boring ol' Sims have heads, dammit. :-(

Okay, have got my new computer, and just saw this message- have you found a version of File Cop for Mac yet? Also, I think I have heard of headless Sims somewhere else, but I don't recall where. If you join "The Sims Resource" site, they have a pretty extensive message board, they might be able to help you there. I am going to be surfing for new Sims stuff in the next day or so, so I'll see if I can't locate some help for your Sims.

Re: Headless Sims- How cool is THAT? :-)
Actually I think I know why that happens--it seems to be if I have the .cmx and .skn files but am missing the .bmp file to go with them (the .bmp seems to be the "paint" that goes on the shape). If the .cmx file is missing or bad, you crash in the create-Sim screen. Hey, I'm learning!

No luck on Filecop or anything like it--but I can work without it, it's just really slow.
