Thief 2 after 6 missions

by parasurv

I got stuck with Thief Gold, so recently I have started playing Thief 2, which I didn't know much about, except, that many people easily say it's better than the original game... (spoilers ahead)

Here is my thoughts after playing the first missions of Thief 2: The Metal Age.

It was time for me another round of links. Some good stuff for gaming and hillarious things for Linux. But who gives a hug anyway. Might be FreeBSD people, just give them a contract before it, otherwise you might get in BSD-jail, hehe.

Firefox: How to organize with Simple Tab Groups

by parasurv

It was about 6 years ago, when I got my current monitor. It was a good 4 inch upgrade from the previous one. Finally I am in the big leagues! And I didn't have to spend any money on viagra (sorry, stupid joke, I know).

Firefox used to have a really good extension, called Firefox Panorama. The aim was that the user could group tabs how they like, so they get a little bit better organized. However this extension ended some time ago, I don't know why. My guess is that Mozilla didn't want to confuse the average user. However the person never had to use Panorama, it was just there.

Many years later, Firefox Quantum is here, with a new line of extensions, and luckily people are fun of Panorama, did something really nice. It's called Simple Tab Groups.

Playing Thief: The Dark Project again...

by parasurv

Life is sometimes do funny things to us. Like when you have to buy a new computer for work, because your old one went puff. Now I have a decent computer, without a dedicated graphics card. Played computer games since mid-90s. And here comes the good part, that a bunch of really good games are actually really old now, and doesn't require that much 3D power.

Like the Thief trilogy, which is still my favorite game series, that I actually never got to finish. Always lost the save files. So I decided I will focus my gaming time on this game now, and dedicate my time and energy to actually finish the game.
