tempest in a teacup

the pointless musings of a strange recluse

Broadcasting from a new location

Finished my move last week, and I’ve been at the new place for just over a week now. It’s a great apartment, and the location is pretty convenient. For instance, if I feel like eating out, I no longer need to take a bus anywhere. I still need to go back to the old place and finish cleaning up before doing the final walkthrough with my former landlord – I’ll probably be doing that this weekend.

What else have I been up to? WelI, I tried out the Crysis demo on my PC, and I was surprised to find out that it was perfectly playable at my monitor’s native resolution with everything turned up to High. Sure, I had to leave AA turned off, but the game still looked stunning, and it played pretty well too. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get it, but now that I’ve tried it out, it’s most definitely on my buy list.

Also, a lot of people bitch about Comcast, but the immediate payoff for me has been

  1. Being able to watch Discovery Channel again
  2. Not having three-digit ping to TF2 servers outside Seattle

So yeah, I’m pretty happy.
