Sloppy seconds

We’ve got a pretty tight deadline on a Windows 2003/Exchange 2003 roll out at work thus time is not an available option to me lately. The M$ roll out is going pretty well and we got a few nice toys in the form of servers within the past couple of weeks which is always a treat to a computer geek such as myself. I’ll make sure to post some pictures of the new toy we’ve been setting up and getting ready to go in the next week and a half.

Another item taking up some of my free time is the game Battlefield 1942 that my buddy Shane got me into. I bought the deluxe version (that comes with “Road to Rome”) several months ago and did not get into it. I’m not sure what it was, but it just didn’t strike me as a good game at the time, but he helped me to see otherwise recently. It’s still taking me a good while to get used to it because I’m used to games like GTA: Vice City, UT2003 and Wolfenstein. The physics and mechanics are completely different in this game, which I am still having some problems with especially with someone like me who’s got a very itchy mouse sensitivity. It seems the spastically high mouse speeds that are advantageous in the ultra quick death match worlds of UT and Quake3 become hindrances in this game, at least for me. That and flying those damn planes is hard as hell, but practice above all else will overcome that. Though I must admit that it’s definitely one of the most fun multi-player games I have ever installed on my machine. My on-line nick is SloppySeconds on the BF servers, so be gentle if you see me for the next few weeks while I hone my skills. 🙂

Things are claming down at work, so my presence on this little nook on the net should be a bit more frequent.
