Ninafer, a BG1 mod

Ninafer, a BG1 mod

The Ninafer mod for BG1 was hosted at the “Chosen of Mystra”. I found that her installation files seem to have disappeared from the internet. I have uploaded my disk copy to this page. The best I can offer is this zip file, called Nina.zip, it contains a setup.exe the .tp2 file and the supporting folder. I talk a bit about her, and document my mirrors; there are two pictures, one of which can be used with the mod.

Second Life

Second Life

Is this the future collaboration platform for the Internet, or another amazing waste of time. The EU Commission took it seriously for a while, and it’s still going. Here are my notes and links,

RYA Day Skipper

RYA Day Skipper

I have been down to Poole, the nine days ending 1st July. The company Moonfleet Sailing offer a nine day combined theory and practical course for the RYA Day Skipper. This offers a weekend in the class room, five days and nights on one of their yachts for the practical and the following weekend to finish the theory and take the exam.

Honda Radios

Honda Radios

Honda Radios have a protection code. They hold this in a volatile RAM i.e. it needs power to retain this information and it loses the code when changing the battery. This article was written in 2007 and is probably pretty worthless now. Jan 2019

NWN Class Builds

This snip originally collected some resources aimed at helping people take their characters through to level 40. It was re-written in 2007 in what was an unsuccessful attempt to re-ignite my interest in the game. It failed and I left it alone for a number of years, I had another look when I started NWN2. The links have degraded over time, firstly with bioware hack and so are no longer easily available , but later the Epic Guild site went away too.  The Epic Guilds recreated themselves at a new site, http://nwn2db.com.

An almost balanced party, of pure class character, from NWN/UTC

I need to rescue the links below, and what follows is the original content, now at least 7 years old. Dave July 2013

Word of Iron

Word of Iron

The outlaw Josey Wales

A quote from the film

Ten Bears: These things you say we will have, we already have.
Josey Wales: That’s true. I ain’t promising you nothing extra. I’m just giving you life and you’re giving me life. And I’m saying that men can live together without butchering one another.
Ten Bears: It’s sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life… or death. It shall be life.

About Wills and Probate

About Wills and Probate

This is for executing a will, under English law and does not talk about managing a funeral, my experience was with a Co-Op bond, so the funeral was handled outside the estate. This is also assuming the estate requires property sale.

It was originally written in 2004/2005. It will be wrong by now.
