College, chrome and some random games.

Yup, college starts tomorrow! Which means for the rest of the night I'll be gathering all of my stuff together and worrying that I'll forget something. Fun fun fun. I'm not too worried about meeting all my classmates, I already met a couple from the induction day so I should have someone to sit next to straight away, that is if they haven't forgotten me! 


There's a lovely new web browser on the block that got released around an hour ago, it's called Google Chrome. So far it's given a great impression, it's the fastest web browser I've ever used, looks nice, the address bar is fantastic and it seems pretty stable. I'll definitely make this my main browser, just so I can help with the testing process. But unfortunately there's two things that aren't so great; normally you can press the middle mouse button to scroll down the page but it doesn't do anything for some reason, and I had a bit of trouble finding my bookmarks at first. I couldn't see them on the bar as a button or anywhere else, but then I opened a new tab and bam, there they were. This is a fantastic first release so I'm hoping that it'll get even better in time.

Games games games, what have I been playing? Oh yeah, Resistance & Liberation! It's a modification for Half-Life 2, set in World War 2 (Stop groaning about games set WW2, I can't get enough of them!) and it plays very much like Red Orchestra, but in this you're playing as the Americans, not the Russians. It's pretty damn fun so far, there are a couple problems which bug me, the KAR98 is a tad buggy. Let's just say you see someone lying down in the bush, you slowly raise your gun and bang! Wait... He's still alive! Then suddenly he spins around at the speed of light and shoots you down with his garand in one shot. Nice huh? Stupid bullets passing through people, bah! That reminds me, I had this pretty tense moment when I was playing the other day, I snuck into this house full of allied troops, I hid in a corner as I could hear people walking on the floor above me and to the side of me. Suddenly someone comes round the corner, bam, shot him down. Then another, then another, then another, then another. I was on a roll! Then I walked into a field and died. Meh. 

I was going to talk about Fallout 2 and Oblivion but I'm too lazy to do that tonight. I'm off to get my college junk ready!

Good luck at college. You should just make a checklist and check off all the things that you're going to take.

Chrome is really great.  I don't know if I'll replace it with Firefox but for something I knew nothing about a day and a half ago it's making a very good first impression :D
