Snood jerky on Windows 7

As every serious programmer knows, Snood is a must application for those moments when it is more important to think than to type. Why, Snood has been helping me program since 2003! So I was quite alarmed when I installed the latest version of Snood (4.x) on my newly built computer with Windows 7 and it was jerky. It is just not possible to play Snood when it’s jerky. You can’t aim straight and end up missing all kinds of clear shots.

I did some googling, as I do when ever I have an issue, and lo and behold, I found a solution! Revert back to Snood version 3.52. Perfect! I downloaded the older version directly from the Snood website (the one from CNet was actually the newer version, even though it is labeled as the older), and now I can play Snood productively!

It is going to be a long year without Kerri

She has been gone 3 weeks, and already I am done with her cat. Honestly, Diamond’s a sweet kitty and all…Actually, she’s not that sweet. She can be a real bitch, and she BITES too. You can’t pick her up to move her or she yowls at you (and may try to bite as well). But she’s old, 13 years old, and quite settled in her ways. She has decided that she prefers to be next to people instead of by herself, say, on the couch. Well, when I’m home, I’m not usually on the couch. I’m usually at my desk. So that is where Diamond has decided she needs to be.

So now I have to work with Diamond helping me, which she does this by continually hitting the keys on my keyboard.

It’s going to be a long year.
