The New Life – a change of circumstance

The clock is ticking. The sand is fast running out. Increasingly I find myself unconsciously noticing little things like how the toothpaste tube is losing its fat, rotund shape like a model on a crash diet after last night’s binge. The can of shaving foam is losing its fizz after months (hey I am not a very hirsute guy, ok?) of use and it won’t be long before I have to plop down cash for a replacement. The burning question is if I need to buy a new can before I leave this place.

After almost 2 years of working in my current location, I am finally being transferred back to my home town. Change is always painful for me hence the mixed feelings. On one hand I am ripe for some scenery swapping but on the other how has my old stomping ground changed and will it accept me back into its folds? Will it kick up a fuss about how I have abandoned it and give me grief about the lost time?

Another chapter comes to a close and what’s in store for me? Right now I am driving a car and in the rear view mirror is the past, the open road up front, the future. Wish me luck!


Google Chrome – new kid on the browser block

I was so excited by the news of the Google browser that I specifically woke up early to download and install it this morning. So far I have not been disappointed although not being able to use it on chrome21my iMac sucks.

The widescreen approach is really refreshing even though I am used to my 20″ iMac. I am sure it will look gorgeous on it, provided the developers get around to patching the apple version together. Cannot wait for the day!

It actually made me fire up my WinXP desktop and let me just say that this has not happened for the longest time.¬†All my regular and not so regular websites have worked so far but ironically gmail took ages to load. I guess thats Murphy’s Law at work. All in all an intersting addition to the browser wars. I am waiting to be blown away in the next few days as I explore the hell out of it.
