Doesnt seem much different to me..
Yesterday lauren went home after 6 wonderful days, shes so wonderful, if only she could be with me all the time. I didnt neglete my computer as much as i thought i would, but there is not anything else to do in chard except walk to tescos!
I tried out a demo of “Need for Speed: Most wanted”, and i was very impressed, i loved the first “underground” but the second was another EA sellout which put me off the series, i didnt take any notice of “Most Wanted” but its acutally really fun to play.
The car control is still a little weird, no where near as good as Toca 3, but racing from the cops, smashing up things to slow them down and trying to see how fast u can go thru speed cameras makes it really exilerating. Very nice list of cars too, inc vipers, Ford GTs and of course Evos. I wont buy it, but it might find its way onto my pc via a friend ;)
Yesterday after Lauren left, i tried to build my own extension for firefox, starting with a “hello world” that everyone is sposed to do! Firstly i used Mozillas guide, and when i had finished it, installed it and restart firefox it wiped out all of my extenions, removing them from my PC. So i spent the next hour finding and downloading them all. Grrrr
Last night i also started using the mic on the new headphones i got to talk to Lauren over msn, it wasnt exactly VoIP as she didnt have a mic but i found it much easier and more personal that typing messages, gunna do it a lot more often to friends and family. Kinda related, i pulled of the sides of my stcker yesterday in an effort to hook up the front panel audio so that i dont have to reach behind the pc everytime i want to switch between headphones and speakers, unfortunately my Audigy 2 has smaller connectors than the supplied cable so i’m going to have to do some bodging to get the mic to work, the headphones worked just fine.

So today i think i will have a bit of a tidy up, my room looks like a mechanica spiders nest (wires and bits of computer everywhere), attempt to find some food, heat up my cup of tea for the 4th time and play day of defeat.
