||Little of this, little of that
Posted on May 30th, 2010
|My day was spent doing a little of everything. I completed the next two comics, did a little more work on the new site and made progress in Guild Wars.
Part of the day was spent researching MMORPGs. As I'm enjoying Guild Wars, I thought I'd see what else is out there. So far, two games have caught my attention and I'm going to try them out.
The first of the two downloaded fine, but then encountered problems. First off, it wants you to run it as administrator. This is a huge red flag, as a game shouldn't need that level of access to your computer. The whole admin/user setup in Win7 was there as a layer of security; running arbitrary programs as admin removes this layer. The next thing that happened was Windows brought up a window saying the program has known issues with Win7 and is not compatible. Gee, that's encouraging.
The second game uses the same download client but is otherwise by a completely different company. Hopefully it fairs better.
The link for the day is a story about a squirrel and some beet pulp.
