Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

I have been ill for the past week or so, so I haven’t got around to writing about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive yet. I finally took a nice long look at the intro trailer that Valve released a while ago.

I have to say that I am very disappointed with Valve on this one. If you knew me before my Call of Duty days, you would have known that I was a hardcore Counter-Strike fan since around November 1999 when my friend introduced it to me.

Android 2.3.3 on my HTC Desire

After a load of reading on the many websites that I visited since the update was announced by HTC, I decided to take the plunge and update my phone to Android 2.3.3.

Ryan and his learning

Recently I was enquiring about some sort of skin or full on keyboard that had all lower-case letters on it to help Ryan while he’s typing out his blog posts. While enquiring, a friend offered to buy him a keyboard skin, being the cheap-o I am, I gladly accepted!

The keyboard skin arrived this morning and Ryan opened his gift.

Sadly it is not of brilliant quality as I was expecting, but for now until I can get some money together to get a proper keyboard with lower-case letters actually written on the keys, it should do a very good job in helping him with his blog posts.

This is how it looks on my keyboard.

As a test I will be getting Ryan to post a blog later on today to see how he gets along with the keyboard skin.
