Google Chrome Reaction, 2 Weeks In

September 17, 2008

So I was among the throngs of people who downloaded Google’s browser, Chrome, when it was first release. In terms of usability, google’s products generally second to none, so I had high hopes for chrome.  While I do see it’s potential, I gotta admit that I am back to using firefox for most of my web browsing, and it’s only been two weeks.  Chrome has alot of cool new functions and it is relatively light on system resources.  But, dag nabbit, it locks up… alot.  At least for me it does.  And I use it on two different computers running Vista on one and XP on the other (both have very different system settings).  It seems to be when I use a flash app, for the most part.  Anyone else having these issues?

Prayers For the Gulf Coast

September 1, 2008

Gustav is layin into the Gulf Coast right now…

Alaina and I were in Pensacola this weekend and had to cut our trip short due to the storm.  The interstate was PACKED with people running from the weather and I 65 in Escambia County, Alabama was a gridlock, forcing Alaina and I to take Hwy 31 north for quite a ways.  I now know why they invented interstates.

Anyway, I am glad we left.  I can’t believe the Gulf Coast (and particularly NOLA) is taking another hit with a storm.  Growing up down there, I just don’t remember there being hurricane problems this often.  It seems like now there are 6 storms a year that threaten or hit that area.  Anyway, I will be praying for the coast today, hope you will be too.
