Windows Instructions to not use emkdu

1.) Navigate to your Emerald installation directory
Normally “C:\Program Files (x86)\Emerald Viewer” or “C:\Program Files\Emerald Viewer”
2.) Look inside for the file name emkdu or emkdu.dll
3.) Delete it while Emerald is closed
4.) Optionally copy in llkdu from one of Linden Lab’s viewers

I will be making a simple installer to do this automatically for you soon.

Mac Instructions To Not Use Emkdu

1) open your installed emerald application with right click (or ctrl-click if you on apple laptop with one trackpad button) -> show package contents
2) navigate into the Contents/Resources folder
3) find the file name libemkdu or libemkdu.dylib and DELETE it.

You can test that you have done this successfully if you go (at the top of your screen) to

help -> About Emerald

in the top half, scroll down some, and look at the jpeg2000 decoder, it should say

J2C Decoder Version: OpenJPEG: 1.3.0, Runtime: 1.3.0

New Computer o.o

So, picking out a computer takes ALOT of time for me. There is actually a decently complicated web of aspects to consider when you are trying to meet a budget, and still have everything work with each other.

I have also had a few people ask me to pick out and build a computer for them, so maybe this can help you in your decisions as well.

Oh, and I had to buy this fan splitter after the fact, as the motherboard didn’t have enough slots http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=25413

SO basically, i wasted a ton of money on the case, but that was to make sure Laura was happy enough with it to be in the living room, brushed aluminum looks pretty cool too.

There is no monitor here, as I am going to be using my TV, and there is no mouse or keyboard, as I got a nice wireless set from a garage sale.

The hard drive is only 60GB, but its made to be fast, not for space , (I have the 2Terra external drive for that)

What the cats drug in

So, we have Satin, the cat who likes to bring in snakes and put them on our bed for us to see and be proud of her.

And we also have Phoenix, who likes to grab anything interesting he finds outside and let us have a look.  This includes half foot long dragonfly’s,  mice, a bat, snakes, and today, a baby squirrel.

All of them are alive and basically unharmed, which is very impressive, especially the bat.  And every time I had to find a way to get them out of his mouth and into a bucket to put back outside.

The squirrel was a baby tho, so I had to make some phone calls and good rehabilitator who knew how to specifically care for it.

I snapped a few pictures first tho, cute cute.
