• Lighthouses everywhere…

    I’m working on a new city-state, and it’s going to have several lighthouses.  (its an island).

    So far in my world, we have 3 differing styles of lighthouses.  They are displayed below.  Which one looks best??  I want the 5 in the new place all e alike, so I need to pick a decent style…

    I’ve used this style in a few places.

  • Browser Woes

    The time has finally come.  I’m attempting to switch from Google Chrome to Mozilla Firefox.  For ages now, its bothered me that Chrome for Mac is still a 32 bit app.  For no real reason apparently!  They have 64 bit for every other system, but not Mac.  Its not that HUGE a deal honestly, the biggest hassle is once in a blue moon coming across a site that uses 64 bit java. It don’t work.

    But I digress.  This weekend I attempted playing some YouTube using Chrome.  It had NO sound.  Period.  Safari and Firefox were just fine, but Chrome, no matter how I rebooted it or reset things, refused to have sound.  This baffled me to no end.  It used to work just fine, like not a week ago.  But for whatever reason, not this weekend.  This pushed me to the point of giving FireFox a try.

    I’ve got it all setup on my laptop and my phone.  Surprisingly, the Android Firefox seems nicer than Chrome to me!  I like the interface a lot better.  We’ll have to see how this turns out.  I’m going to try it for at least a week, and see how I like it vs. Chrome.

    More to come!
