Nothing to do

It is amazing how much time there is in 24 hours. Crazy, huh? Previously, I used to wonder how come I had no time to blog, check my mail, read a book or just day dream. But now that I have left my addiction to Travian behind, it seems I can’t think of anything to do. I guess until I catch the next wave, I will find myself with a lot of free time. I think I will go through the hundreds of videos on my hard disk. I am sure I will find something interesting to see. If you think of something to obsess about, let me know.

The fickle me

For the past 5 months, I have been playing travian a lot, and that is an understatement. At one point, I was playing on 3 servers, while helping 3 others play the game. I used Firefox to log into my accounts on 3 server, Chrome and K-Meleon to log into accounts of my alliance members. And while I was at work, I used to use my mobile to continue playing. It is over now, I have decided that I have been obsessing over the game far too long and have decided to quit. Sometime tomorrow afternoon my account will be closed. None of my alliance members are aware that I have decided to quit and it is going to affect the alliance ranking. As I am the highest ranked player 😀 in my alliance, no one would want me to quit. So maybe I will send a note before my …

Game of the day – Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense: “Desktop TD is a fun flash based puzzle / strategy game where you have to protect your desktop from invaders by spending money on attacking pieces and building a maze for them to follow. Strangely addictive yet stress relieving… how many levels can you survive?” My takeI wouldn’t call this a stress reliever, it is a good game to take your matter off things, and something interesting to do when you don’t have any work to do. But, “familiarity breeds contempt”; I played this game late into the night yesterday and now, I don’t find myself eager to play it again. But yes, when I am at work, with nothing better to do, I would like to sneak a game or two.
