A few observations from
this weekend. I mean it was yet another weekend in which I just
didn't spend much time gaming. In fact, I didn't spend a single
minute gaming and the closest I got was watching the Sounders take
on the Red Bulls.
First off, I have to say
Windows Update, my video card, and Google Chrome all seems to hate
each other. Actually, maybe Chrome and my video card are fine with
each other, but the latest round of critical Windows updates has
left me in an annoying place. I cannot any longer, using Chrome
pinned to my Windows 7 taskbar, use any of the tasks associated with
Chrome. I can open Chrome, but to open an incognito window (having
multiple gmail inboxes to check, it's easier to have an incognito
window open) requires more steps than a right click and a left
click. It only gets more aggravating when, due to an update, I
cannot use a HDMI audio output from my PC without rebooting my PC
each time. It's worse when the latest updates slowed down my reboot
time by about two whole minutes.
Secondly, I really would
have liked to see the Sounders win. If they were going to be going
with a draw, it would have been cool to not be scored on by a former
Sounder. It also would be nice, if a draw is in the works, to see
Roger Levesque on the bench for his last ever MLS game.
shopping is a whole new world of weird for me. A test drive in a car
is fun. Testing a home theater setup before buying is fun. Laying on
a mattress while someone observes and asks questions is just weird.
