For those who have trouble installing the 1.1 version of .Net in Windows 7 (“application has generated an exception that could not be handled” error), the following steps from JasonFJ from this thread worked perfectly for me:

~ Create a new folder named DotNet in C:\ drive (C:\DotNet is used in this guide, you can change to any folder you prefer, but ensure that you use correct path in the following steps).

~ Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Redistributable Package. Make sure the setup file is saved as dotnetfx.exe .

~ Download Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 (NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe). Make sure that the file is renamed and saved as dotnetfxsp1.exe, so that the rest of the steps can be followed easily.

~ Move both installation files into the same directory (i.e. C:\DotNet), if you’re not saving them together. Open command prompt as Administrator (Start > All Programs > Accessories > [right-click on Command Prompt and select “Run as Administrator]).

~ Change to the directory where the two installation setup files for .NET 1.1 are saved (i.e. C:\DotNet).

~ Run the following commands one by one, press Enter after each one.

dotnetfx.exe /c:”msiexec.exe /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=C:\DotNet”

~ Then click on “Yes” when prompted to answer “would you like to install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1. Package?”

dotnetfxsp1.exe /Xp:C:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

msiexec.exe /a c:\DotNet\netfx.msi /p c:\DotNet\netfxsp.msp

That’s it. It apparently doesn’t work for everyone, but this was the solution that worked for me. Games/programs like Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) require .Net 1.1.

If this still doesn’t work, check out this thread at the LOTRO forums for other solutions.

Just your garden-variety fanart recs post. I think I was doomed as soon as I stumbled across luulala’s gallery. And Gobeur’s. Title + art excerpt + notes follow.

Malik, Altair by luulala

~ I rarely have one favorite fanart in an entire fandom, but this one would be it for AC.

Ezio and Altair by luulala

~ more from the same artist, cross-generation slash ftw~

Look Ezio, isn’t it amazing? by Gobeur

~ I had no idea that the “Leo” in this fanart was Leonardo da Vinci. Or that I’d fall so hard for the char when I played AC2. 🙁 sorry, dude.

Untitled by Gobeur

~ Malik’s the first amputee character I’ve ever wibbled over. I find this weird…I thought there’d be more. Mukuro’s awesome, but I didn’t like her that much.

Accessing the Animus DS by Gobeur

~ Gobeur’s sense of humor. XD ♥

Just a Kiss by Ayleid

~ I love this Leonardo. Just the right amount of softness. ♥

Untitled by Yousui (? hope I read that right)

~ Beautiful Altair/Malik fanart. Admittedly saw this after I got into AC, but it’s too pretty not to put in here.

found you by doubleleaf

~ Doubleleaf is probably the most prolific fanartist in the AC fandom (which is awesome, because she draws so well). This is the AC artwork I love most in her gallery.

I wanted to include fanart involving Altair’s water solubility (because one doesn’t really get into this fandom without making fun of the master assassin’s inability to swim), but I can’t find one that I adore enough. 🙁 Oh, well.
