Finished my move last week, and Iâ€™ve been at the new place for just over a week now. Itâ€™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 â€“ Iâ€™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 monitorâ€™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 wasnâ€™t sure if I wanted to get it, but now that Iâ€™ve tried it out, itâ€™s most definitely on my buy list.
Also, a lot of people bitch about Comcast, but the immediate payoff for me has been
- Being able to watch Discovery Channel again
- Not having three-digit ping to TF2 servers outside Seattle
So yeah, Iâ€™m pretty happy.
