Books & Movies & Football Manager & Windows

Posted by Scotsman on October 20, 2009 in Life |

Finished reading John Grishams The Associate today.  Pretty weird book overall.  You’re basically sitting there waiting for something big to happen and it never does – no real climax to it etc.  It’s just a story.  Not bad by any means, but I was expecting something more for sure.  Next up is John Katzenbachs The Wrong Man.

Fuck, I can’t wait for Windows 7 to come out.  I’m buying a whole new desktop machine and I am pumped – my current one is just slow as shit, and badly in need of a reformat – yet I just can’t be bothered with another reformat.  Hopefully Windows 7 will be able to handle the piece of shit that Firefox has turned into.  It’s always sad when a program gets worse with age, not better.  The memory leaks in it are ridiculous.

I wish I knew more computer geeks though – or rather, ANY fucking computer geeks.  I’ve lost touch with the computer world, so when I go to buy a computer and I choose the default one, then it is like “DO YOU WANT TO BUY THIS PROCESSOR FOR $440 MORE?” I am like “No fucking clue”.  No idea if I need it, what it does or anything.  Stuff like “Hyperthreading” is basically a foreign language.  Any hardware guys out there up for helping me build a new computer?  Drop me an e-mail at G@DealerDan.com.

The new Football Manager game, FM 2010, comes out I believe next week.  I’m slightly tempted to purchase it, as FM 09 is getting frustrating at times with the tactics, and so many little bugs.  But on the other hand, I’ve never really been able to have a long-term game in FM 09.  I had a nice 12 season one in FM 08, but my longest in FM 09 was 5 seasons with Rangers, then the 3rd patch came out and I had to restart.  Since then I’ve never been able to get past the 3 season mark, which is disappointing.  I’ve started a game with Crystal Palace just now that I hope I can get a long game out of – but who knows.

Anyway the purchase of FM 2010 is probably something I won’t bother with.  I mean they are releasing it next week, then they plan a patch around Christmas, then ANOTHER patch around February.  No matter what SI say, it WILL fuck with the save game.  Always has, always will.  So I’m tempted to skip it, or at least play FM 09 up until February.

We’ll see. Watch me buy it on release day.

Finally here are movies I have watched lately and my ratings of them:
