I wish I had a pair...

...of these.

Red Alert 3: Uprising

Seriously? No multiplayer?!

I mean, first off... Isn't that half the reason for playing a C&C game? The multiplayer...

Getting together with your friends online or at a LAN and playing a massive skirmish...

And in RA3, you could even do a 2 player co-op through the storyline itself... This was the greatest feature the franchise has yet to offer... and they left it out?!

Three words... What The Fuck?

The music is good and the rest of the game looks promising, but I was looking forward to playing the co-op missions tonight and I am unable to do so...

*sigh*

Actionscript 3.Oh no...

Ok, so .. Actionscript 1/2.0 ... to get a website to pop up, you used a simple command called getURL... 

The context was roughly:
getURL("http://www.google.com");

Now, in Actionscript 3.0, you just use:
var getGoogle:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.google.com");
navigateToURL(getGoogle);


See, it's simple now...

Ok, so it's not hard, but it is just one example of the major changes between AVM1 and AVM+

I feel like I have to completely relearn Actionscript... *sigh*

History in the making...

Holy crap. Andrew just introduced me to one of Google Chrome's greatest and most powerful features. I had no idea about this feature until moments ago, and I think its quite noteworthy.

Chrome has a hotkey to re-open closed tabs. That's right. Ever close a tab and wish you hadn't? I sure have. Ctrl+shift+T, my friend. Oops, you closed 3/5 tabs and you wanted all of them open?! No sweat! Just hold ctrl+shift and tap T 3 times... No worries!

Seriously, this is a powerful little trick that might save your ass some day.

And you thought that tab was history...
