Yes! Finally! An update less than a month in the making!
Damn! Really should have thought this through better to have something to actually post...CURSES!
Just so this is on the record...I HATE testing software. HATE IT. With a passion. You have to install it...then make sure it runs...then make sure most of the big buttons work (you can't check EVERYTHING)...then you have to log in as a "normal" user and do it all over again. Then, as if that wasn't bad enough...if it's an older application I have to reboot the machine into that old operating system and check it there!! GRRRRR! Then I have to type up a form about what works and what doesn't on top of that. Must....kill....world....
Still waiting for my Pirates Limited Edition to come in...which sucks. I was hoping it'd be here by now and that I'd be able to pick it up and be fat dumb and happy as I plundered the Spanish Main. Not yet! I really like this because rather than 3-4 CDs...they're using a single DVD. Marvelous.
Halo 2 is kind of fun, but it reminds me why I'm glad I play PlanetSide. The number of people on that game who think they're the greatest thing since sliced bread simply because they have a decent amount of skill at a *video game* is really annoying and further evidence that this country needs to support post-natal abortions. With PlanetSide, you need a pretty top-notch computer in addition to a great Internet connection and a monthly fee. To play Halo 2, you need a $149 Xbox, a $50 game and you GET 2 months of online play for free. The video card you need to play PlanetSide costs more...but it has the advantage of keeping the idiot children out. That's not to say trash-talk does not go on in PlanetSide, but it's far less offensive and much easier to shut people up.
Anyway, I should probably do that "work" thing they nominally pay me for...so until next time!
