Get rid of Securom if you play Sims 2

I keep seeing people talk about Sims 2 bugs that they ascribe to either Windows 10 or the Ultimate Collection that are actually due to Securom. For instance, if your buy/build catalog is lagging, I can almost guarantee it’s because of Securom.

Securom’s always caused problems, but Microsoft itself has said that it’s incompatible with Windows 10. They purposefully broke compatibility with Securom and other old DRM programs because they make one’s system more vulnerable, so you need to get this thing off your computer. EA did not remove it from the Ultimate Collection on Origin (which was irresponsible of them), so you have to do it yourself.

Removing Securom is very easy to do and only takes a couple steps. Here is a clear thread on leefish about how to do it:

Before reinstalling, rolling back, anything else, try removing Securom. Even if you have no performance problems, if you still have Securom, get rid of it. It’s not a safe program to have on your computer.


People : What do you want the most right now?
What I think: To be given the chance to write official content for Mystic Messenger characters because they have so much potential, also even if it’s unavoidable to have plot holes and out of characterness I believe it would be great to give them the same character growth in every route and more consistency, ALL OF THEM AT LEAST ーEVEN IF NOT LOVEDー DESERVE TO BE RECOGNIZED AND APPRECIATED AS WELL-WRITTEN, GOOD, COMPLEX CHARACTERS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE A SET OF STRENGTHS AND FLAWS. I ALSO PERSONALLY NEED THESE CHARACTERS TO BE HAPPY AFTER THEIR DEVELOPMENT. Also, so that people realize that interpetation also plays a big role in these things.
What I say: Oh, nothing in particular.
What people would probably think if they can read my mind : The fuck, chill gurl

As you can see, I have invested too much of my time and emotional attachment to this game and its characters.

anonymous asked:

so, pap. what happened to your jaw? something doesn't look right with those little circular things, there. are they hinges?

{ ahahaha,,,,, i’ll respond to this personally because it’s something no longer relevant.

that’s from an early design from when i was first planning out the backstory for the skelebros. here’s a closer look at the mobile banner so people know what anon is talking about:

as you can see, the prosthetic arm is visible too. I’ve significantly changed their backstory from when i’ve first started this blog, so there would be no need for papyrus to have those features. 

But!!! i’m a sucker for consistency….so i’ve kept their designs the same, more or less. I took out the hinges because i figured no one would notice, but here we are, haha. I kept the ball-jointed arm because that was…kinda more noticeable? again, i’m a sucker for consistency, and I had a way to justify it as opposed to the hinged jaw. I honestly would’ve never given him a prosthetic arm if it weren’t for that lol,,

the backstory i’ve established for them now is completely different from when i first opened up this blog…so if youre curious, the original backstory involved artificial souls and ball-jointed dolls to act as vessels. it was….pretty wild, so i scrapped it and here we are. as for the current one i’ve established….i’ll reveal gradually as time goes on ;^) }

Nothing good comes from stopping - stopping anything. 

Stopping your feelings.

Stopping your tears. 

Stopping your love. 

They are all worthy of your time. Even if it doesn’t seem like they are important. If they seem to you that you don’t need them. Believe me, you do need them. 

To wish I could’ve said the things I hadn’t before I left, it pains me. I wouldn’t let you see me that way because it would’ve caused you more pain than it did me.

Your smile. 

Your laugh

Your tears

I didn’t want this to happen… I didn’t…. I didn’t choose this life, we didn’t choose this life. But it was either you or me, and i wasn’t going to let it be you. 

Lead the team, lead them as if I were there right next to you. As if I would go back to your little house sitting in the comfort of silence and nothingness. 

Nothingness except the presence of you and I.”

This is a letter Shiro wrote to Keith as he left the black lion and left it especially for Keith to find. He was the poet of the group, the kind that could sweep you off your feet just with his words. His letter and the lion were the only thing left of him. He wasn’t seen after.

I wonder if these sjws who like to finger wag at other fans about the “illegality” of certain kinds of sexual content ever see the fallacy of arguing for “social justice” but calling on the power of the police state to cleanse fandom of its sins. Like LOL u realize that almost everything that happens in fandom veers into illegality because of copyright laws, and if we bring the state into all this all of us are gonna be in trouble not just the people who ship “problematic” things. if we want fandom to be more safe and accessible and affirming we need to do the work ourselves, not rely on exterior mechanisms to carry out our bidding.

I guess i'm asking you this because i know you multiship emma. i'm someone who doesn't really understand multishipping? is it more of a "if so and so didn't exist i could see them with this person" kind of scenario? because at first when i stumbled upon multishipping it felt offensive in some way (not anymore tho). because i thought people where saying hook isn't enough for emma that ppl need to seek something else for her etc.

I multiship everyone tbh ahahahahahh

It’s more of a “best of both worlds” kinda situation? I don’t know, it’s hard to explain, but I multiship because I love the different dynamics those different pairings have to offer and the different options I have for headcanons and fanfictions (that I never will write)

There are some precise scenarios for some ship like for example I mostly ship Red Swan in modern AUs because I see Red as Emma’s godmother so it feels weird to me to ship them together in Storybrooke. I particularly love Frozen Swan with them as teenagers in the Enchanted Forest, exploring their magic together. Wizard Swan with Emma as a teenager having a crush on her magic tutor Merlin makes my knees go weak. Exploring Millian’s past, or as a side ship when Emma is paired with someone else in fics is always a nice bonus too tbh, I always keep Emma and Killian as bffs because I love them as friends too

I know it can be hard to understand for non-multishipper, but I actually put a bunch of pairings on the same level. Of course, I talk and reblog and write about Captain Swan the most, since it has the most content to offer anyway, but Frozen Swan, Gremma and Millian are up there with CS too. I just love them very much and I’m equally happy with every combinaison (sometimes even mixing up, like Irish Swan Trio and Pirate Captain Swan being such great dynamics to explore).

You can actually see that to a certain extend in my fics. People pointed out that Emma would probably never have gotten together with Killian in Definitely maybe if I hadn’t taken Graham out of the picture, and I agree with that (the Gremma scenes actually are some of my favourites in this fic). Keeping Gremma platonic in her crowning glory was the hardest thing and Emma’s joke about marrying them both was actually something I asked my beta like, let’s just resolve that with polyamory and be done with it.

So no, it’s really not about Killian not being enough for Emma. I would be devastated if something happened to Captain Swan in canon (even if I know they’re safe) and I do believe that Killian is a perfect match for her at this point in her life. Just like I believe Milah was a perfect match for him at some point, and Graham a perfect match for her in season 1. But I’m a storyteller. I see all the possibilities every ship has to offer and I love to explore that and to come up with a million scenarios where Emma is always happy with whoever I throw at her. (Sometimes they don’t need much probing to throw themselves at her, it’s wonderful.)

anonymous asked:

hi there! i'm ftm and recently i came out to my school and my boyfriend. its been going pretty good so far, i've been out for three months! but, my bf insists that he'll always see me as a girl, and keeps calling me his girlfriend. he uses my new name, and sometimes he calls me by my proper pronouns, but i want him to really see me as a boy. what should i do? i've tried explaining how it makes me feel, and how upsetting it is for him to do that, but he still doesn't seem to get it. i

Maybe direct him to some reading material. Other than that. He doesn’t seem supportive and you should really address that. Because you need supportive people in your life. I hope things work out for you brother. We’re here if you ever need to vent or need more advice.



Er…so this probably isn’t what you expected from a Big Hero 6 x Frozen crossover…sorry!! not sorry :P

And for those of you who just wanted to see Hiro in a dress, here! <3

(also, please tag this with Big Hero 6 spoilers since it really does kinda spoil ^ ^;  Thankees!)

I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages (because how reckless can a form of digitized communication be?) and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, Kiss me harder, and You’re a good person, and, You brighten my day. I live my life as straight-forward as possible.
Because one day, I might get hit by a bus.

Maybe it’s weird. Maybe it’s scary. Maybe it seems downright impossible to just be—to just let people know you want them, need them, feel like, in this very moment, you will die if you do not see them, hold them, touch them in some way whether its your feet on their thighs on the couch or your tongue in their mouth or your heart in their hands.

But there is nothing more beautiful than being desperate.

And there is nothing more risky than pretending not to care.

We are young and we are human and we are beautiful and we are not as in control as we think we are. We never know who needs us back. We never know the magic that can arise between ourselves and other humans.

We never know when the bus is coming.

I want this video to get a billion notes. I want this song to play on the radio. I want every person on the planet to know about this video. 

Are you going to be okay?
Don't worry about me.

It’s a really silly thing I’ve made for danisnotonfire - yup, another #headerfordan.
This time I’ve something to say: Dan, we are proud of you. We, phangirls, are proud of you.
2015 will be a great years, I know it. We believe in you- and no matter what, we want you to be happy. Look where you are, boy. Look at you. I might cry. From a boy who thought his future was uncertain to the internet cult leader with a bright future - actually, brighter than his clothes! *haha- no Lil you are not funny shut up*
Dan, no matter what, please, be happy, because happy Dan is the best Dan we know and the Dan we want.
“Do whatever you have to do to be happy”. Smile, boy, because you have a fantastic life with your bestfriend, in front of you.

We love you.


Slightly different take on this post here, because reasons.

everything you need to know about stranger things (spoiler free)

Netflix-original drama stars award-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 – inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences. When Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities. As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.

Netflix Original Series. I shouldn’t even have to say more and you should be interested because when Netflix does something they never let you down. Netflix out does themselves with this one, they go above and beyond.

If Steven Spielberg and Stephen King had a baby with the creative directors of Silent Hill and every 80s film you ever loved this is what would have come out of it. I was hooked in the first 10 minutes of the show because there is just absolutely nothing like it on tv or on any platform. The Duffer Brothers are also writers of Wayward Pines so if you are a fan of that you will be a huge fan of this, small towns and every jump scare you could possibly think of is what this show has.

You’ve got your classic E.T. style kids who want to find their missing best friend, but for once they are SMART. It’s not like kids on tv today who run and hide under their bed from things that are coming to get them. It’s the kind of kids who THINK and are intelligent, they are the brilliantly witty and have well thought plans that actually work. All of the young actors in this are fantastic.

Meet Eleven. The most brilliant and amazing girl you will ever see in a television show. She is the hero of this entire show and the most precious girl in the whole world. Telekinetic Warrior Hero. Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven is just outstanding. The emotional weight and gestural acting that carries every scene she is in all combine into one of the best performances of any character I have ever seen. She is haunting and brought me to tears. 

Joyce (Winona Ryder) is so good in this role she will kill you in every scene, the way she feels and her acting is just so good. I was crying every time she was crying and I am sure you will be too once you get attached to the story. She is stunning in this role. She will tear your heart out and get you hooked right off the bat.

Did someone say brothers?? Are you looking for your next brother show?? Older brother losing his mind when his little brother goes missing?? Jonathan played by (Charlie Heaton) is so fantastic and emotional charged. He’s smart, thoughtful and incredibly kind but most importantly he wants to find his brother Will played by (Noah Schnapp). Will who is missing for the entire 8 episode series absolutely destroyed me, he was so good and just smart in every way possible. He never stopped thinking about how stay safe and not get himself killed, he is the first child in a tv show I have ever seen that actually didn’t go hide but instead he went and knew how to protect himself. Jonathan will do anything to save his brother and he also makes him mix tapes to teach him the best kind of music. It’s honestly the cutest thing in the world.


Stranger Things is a show that will surprise you and hit you hard, if you don’t find it in the first episode you will find that it hits you really hard during one of the episodes and it is life changing. Before you start asking ‘is it about aliens’ the answer is no. This show is not about aliens, think more Fringe Science and other worldly but not ‘out of this world’ This show’s roots are in mystery, true horror and nostalgia for the ‘80s. 

I’m not going to spoil anything but the monster of the show is very Silent Hill mixed with Slither. It was alot if you aren’t used to horror but after a while you will get used to it. This show is the best thing to happen in so long so please don’t pass it up. Check it out, watch it and love it. You’ve got everything from ladies, to diverse best friends, brothers, supernatural horror, other dimensions, time and space, family and best friends loving Lord of The Rings and D&D together.

The acting, directing, writing, design style, soundtrack and production is better than most movies today and will knock your socks off. This show is something everyone needs to see, and it will change the way you see tv. The story is original, the writing is all original and everything about it is so fresh and new it’s so different from anything that is on today.
