I broke a tooth on Xmas night, and still haven't got to the dentist. (Though I did get to work today, eventually.) There is a slight pain over it, but I can't say if it's from the root channel or the sinus ... had a pretty bad cold yesterday which may have hurt the sinuses. I did not feel anything before that.
On the bright side (such as it is), I managed to harmlessly remove the GeForce 3 from my PC and put back in the GeForce 2. The computer now again works quite well. I believe the 2 will be enough to run Shrouded Isles, only without the glitz and not particularly fast. If we live, we will learn. This computer is slightly over 1 year old, a bit early to retire even here in Norway!
Fireworks are going off continually outside already. Of course, these are mostly cheap and fairly small fireworks. Still, it is definitely that night. I may sneak out later and take a peek. Perhaps. It is quite cold outside. In fact, it is somewhat chilly inside too. Did you know the Vikings believed their "hell" was not burning hot but freezing cold? Niflheim, the destination of the unlamented dead, was a hell of cold. I can understand their view on a day like this one.
