The hard drive in my six-year-old geezer computer has officially mutinied and I'm not happy about it. >:( It's refusing to boot up my OS and while I'm suspecting physical damage, I'm hoping it's because of something that's way more salvageable.... Of course, last night I thought to myself, "gee, maybe I should do a fresh backup. NAH I'MMA GO TO BED, I HAVE PLENTY OF TIME!!"

So the bad news is that the Pomerantz neighborhood and all their pictures might be vaporized, and I have no idea when I'll get my computer into working order. The good news is that I have a new update pretty much done so I can get that up soon. And I have a phone that can handle internet now, so at least I can still post!

Moral of the story? DON'T BE ME, BACK UP YO SHIT

I didn't want to spam a million similar replies so I'll stick the update here: IT'S ALIVE! And the solution was incredibly stupid: apparently the first thing that the HP Pavilion gives power to on start-up is the little card readers... not the hard drive or CD drive or anything useful like that. So if these card readers hiccup and decide not to work, the power stops there and this brickwalls your entire boot sequence. DUMB! My dad recalled reading a post about this four years ago when he was trying to fix his own Pavilion so he axed the readers and voila, it worked. Old grandpa computer is a little touchy right now but all the data is safe and sound and newly backed-up. (if you're still putting off your latest back-up... seriously, go do it)

If anything good came out of this, it's that the new computer build list I've been waffling over creating for over a year now came together SUPER FAST. Thanks for the kick in the butt, HP!

I updated some of the Almassy downloads today -- jeanbunny was having some issues with them and kindly helped me troubleshoot! The changes are:

- All the gen 1, gen 2, and gen 3 sims now have proper names for their character files instead of the BodyShop-generated string. If you've had an issue where they generate in CAS with an incorrect face, this should solve it.
- Luke's eyebrows are now a better color.
- Israel has been properly de-witched so he should no longer have a broken evil witch overlay.

I think that's about it! Lemme know down below if there's any issues.

I'M SO EXCITED THAT I FINALLY GET TO DO THIS!! If you haven't seen this before, it's basically an old awards show meme thing from legacy_writers. (You can find the template for it in this post!) It's a fun excuse to go back through old families and legacies and reminisce on everything they did, good AND bad.

As a heads-up, there's lots of blabbering and LOTS of pictures underneath the cut, but I don't think that's anything new at this point. Shall we?

Here's a short list of last names I've collected for legacies and challenges and things - it makes no sense for me to hoard them all to myself, so why not see if there's one you'd like to use?

Legacy Last Names List @ pastebin

So the ETA on the next Almassy update is... soon, maybe? I hope? D: I've been busy (this month has been worlds better than last month, thankfully) so I haven't had much time to play. Also, uh, Smash 3DS happened. GOD IT MAKES ME WANT A WIIU NOW. GODDAMNIT SAKURAI

Hopefully you've all been well!! And I'll try to crank out that next update soonish!
