Vista and NVidia GeForce FX 5200

I was trying a demo version of Modo v2.0.2 the other day and under Microsoft's Vista it would install but upon running would just quit. No error messages - nothing :-( Given Vista's desire to run DirectX 10 [very limited support] I looked to see if there were updates for my NVidia card. There are BETAs here. Problem solved!

After Mr.W had asked if there was anything going on tonight I got back to him and said no, later Y'Nick wanted to do something so I referred him to Mr.W - but Mr.W said he was going to bed at 10:30pm since it was a school night. Wow - I was impressed sometimes he shows such a great amount of responsibility. I used to get to bed at a reasonable time but lately it's been really bad. However...I heard a knock on the door @10:30pm and it was Mr.W had decided to catch a bus downtown and to drop by for a surprise. Though it's cool when he comes by I knew that he wasn't going to stay for long, so we didn't really have the chance to do anything but play some Need for Speed. A short but never the less enjoyable visit.
