God, it's been ages since I've written in here, hasn't it?  Anyway, given I've attempted to write an update a few minutes before and screwed up a little, this intro will be a bit short, so I'm just going to get to the point with everything before diving in.  Anyway, I'm doing it on a month by month basis, apart from December and January which have a lot of overlap so it is pointless to divide them.  Anyway, I'll add any additional notes in brackets and italics seeing as given I'm on a restrospective, I'll have info to add when stuff actually happened (or didn't), so you have an idea of where to look if you want to read about a particular month,  Anyway, without further ado, I'll begin.

December & January
Well, given I initially talked about my dental problems, I may as well go and mention I had an x-ray and a little cleanup at the dentists and I was told that they needed to come out and it'd be 4 weeks before I got contacted regarding the surgery (it actually took a bit longer but did happen).  I ended up relying on painkillers for a good few days before the gum pain stopped as well; it was caused by a bit of debris caught between my gum and the tooth and inflamed it!  That was a load of fun to deal with.  I normally don't take painkillers so they retain their effectiveness (meaning I have to be in real agony before taking them) so having to rely on them got to me quite a bit.  I was also attempting to normalise my blogging (stormkeeper.net) patterns at this point but pretty much failed not long after.  I guess trying to schedule my blogging patterns is like trying to stop the wind by standing in front of it; in other words you can't schedule creativity.  I am at least trying to blog twice a month, if nothing else.  I'll most likely distribute this to another blog, on the basis that it's a nice summary of the past few months, and it's something to write for it too.  And while the stuff here is a bit personal, it isn't too personal, given I've been sharing a lot of it on Twitter anyway! I was also sorting out my PC and upgraded my laptop over this time, although the desktop's hard drive is rather screwed and needs to be repartitioned and I'll have to see what I can save from it as well... if that's at all possible.  I dunno how it happened, but one partition got corrupted but that's a post for another time.

More Dec-Jan ) 

February
After the disaster that was January, I was looking forward to the start of the new year properly; I always start my new year this month because I use January to tie up last year's business.  It kinda works well, but can only get more efficient as time goes on!  I started to get into Star Trek Online at this point and pretty much gave up on C&C4 and played this and Guild Wars.  STO was quite enjoyable and still is, although due to my imparative move, I didn't get back into it until 3 months after.  I was a little frustrated with the ground combat but overall I like the game.  My major annoyance with te game has to be the spammers though... they never let up!  I was also starting to pack up everything slowly but surely at this point, given I was due to move on the 19th and as part of that plan, I was trying to empty my cupboards.  And on the tech front, I started to use Google Buzz, which is tied into my Twitter; Facebook also changed their layout and honestly, I prefer it as it's much easier to use.  Not everyone did like it however, at least judging by my friend's comments.  And then we have the 14th of Feb... Valentines Day, or to some Singles Awareness Day.  It's not my thing, but meh I had bigger fish to fry.  I got to see Assemblage 23 live!  I also got to see some other acts and learn about Revolution by Night and Tenek and got a free CD off another band, System FX I believe.  Coolest thing about Tenek was that one of the gs was from The Nine, whose song My Fallacy I loved, so it's great to get back into my past.  Assembage 23 was awesome and I loved every second of it.  I'll post up a photo of the lead singer Tom Shear later on when I upload it to my Flickr, but those of you who have access for my Facebook can see it in one of my more recent photo albums.

More February! )

I seem to be getting a little better at updating my journal, but only just. The last gap was a month and 5 days and this one was 10 days, although to be fair if it wasn't for the power cut that hit the area I live, it would have been up to 3 days sooner, but no matter, I'm writing now, and that's what counts. At least it's sooner than my average post frequency anyway. I'm hoping that now I'm starting to get better, I'll start updating more, instead of struggling to remember everything after a week or so! What usually ends up happening is that I end up bouncing from topic to topic, which were in different parts of the unblogged period. I admit it's not the most coherant of methods in some ways, but it's hard going back and putting things in order. It'll happen less when I start blogging more frequently. Moving on, it's been a somewhat interesting week and a half. If I can remember it, I'll be doing well! This is why I need to actually blog more often, as I'm already forgetting stuff! I may as well start from Monday of this week and hopefully, I'll be able to work my way back, but I get the impression I won't remember much, and thus a chunk of my life is forgotten, just like that. Literal story of my life, really. Anyway, I've recently gotten myself a router and a new headset, to replace the ones I had; the headset mic wasn't working and the router I had wasn't great, it's one of those BeBoxes.

It works okay, but the wireless isn't the strongest. I needed something a bit stronger to reach downstairs (or up, if I move the router to under the stairs) and an N+ router has enough of a signal. It also has this neat "guest access" feature which will be handy for when people come over. Hopefully, with the other features of the router, I'll be able to have things work better for me. Initially though, it wouldn't work and I was so close to bringing it back because of this. I had already went to PC World before (during the power cut - what else was I to do?) to return a game and a soundcard... I got the game with the sequel (Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights) for the same price off Steam and the soundcard didn't have something I wanted, that being a MIDI/Game port. Yeah, I brought an otherwise great soundcard back because it lacked a MIDI port! To be fair though, I have game controllers that I can't use because a MIDI port is required, and it seemed pointless just letting them lie there in a box... see there's a practical purpose!

One good thing about that particular series of cards though is that it is built for sound and music, so my composing will sound great! I've yet to order the replacement, but I'll do that at some point. I did also bring the router with me, so they'd price match it with Comet, but that was a bugger! I took the bus up to the nearest stop to the place (okay, it wasn't exactly the nearest, but it was the nearest on the route I took!) - although it was still a bit up the road - and ended up walking to the shopping complex a little further up the road, looking for a Comet; seeing as my local one was affected by the power cut, it was bound to be closed, so the next nearest one was around the general area of PC World. I popped into the Asda I found to get some breakfast as I hadn't eaten at that time and found out that news of the power cut travelled westwards! I suppose though, given how close Charlton is to where I live, this wasn't a surprise. Anyway, I got directions to the Comet and I realised that when I got there I had walked from Charlton Station (almost) to Greenwich Peninsula!

The buses made it seem so far, although admittedly, they're constrained to certain roads.... I, on the other hand can walk practically anywhere! I really need a bike though... it'd save me a lot of time and money for medium distances although I do need to learn how to properly use it on the road first. Anyway, after getting the price quote, I took the bus back to the stop I got off at, although while I was walking to the PC World, I noticed a 108 stopping along the same road I was walking! It was really one of those moment where I was thinking "dammit!", but to be fair, I don't use that route all that often, so I could be forgiven for not thinking of just taking a bus to the stop just outside. I needed the exercise anyway, to be fair... I don't get out a lot >.>

I got there after a few minutes anyway and proceeded to wait to be seen by the lady at the desk, first getting her to refund me for the game and the card. after the simple bit was sorted, I proceeded to give her the router and mentioned the price match offer with Comet. The woman didn't want to give it to me at first as Comet didn't have it in stock (the manager of Comet was more than happy to get me one if I wanted it!), but I informed her that I didn't want it and she decided to price match with Comet after that. The actual promise though is that you get a refund of 110% of the difference. I wasn't gonna argue for the sake of 2 quid though so I left, happy I got 20 quid back. I did learn a valuable lesson in assertiveness though, both in what I did and didn't do. Either way, next time, I'll be researching the price of an item before buying it!

And that pretty much brings me up to date for the time being... damn, I've not written this much since I did that entry on my other blog! I'm actually using tags this time too, another change that I should start with. No more uncategorised! Twitter exports have now stopped though. If you want to keep up to date with my tweets, you can do so on my Facebook, with about 1/2-2/3 of them, or if you want to see everything, www.twitter.com/stormkeeper.

PS: If the paragraphs look screwy, it's because they are... Firefox crashed while I was typing up this entry, so I have to redo all the paragraph breaks!

PPS: I just looked at the journal entry in comparison to what is hidden by the cut and it looks like a literary iceberg!  There's a lot to cover, so I'd boil a cup of tea before reading it all, and take breaks - I did when writing it!  Oh, for those who were curious, this entry totalled 4903 words before this sentence... I could write university papers and I have before... although I need to keep to the topic first!

The past couple days have been relatively uneventful, save for the fact I missed doing my Sunday Afternoon Chill show again, d'oh!  I made the evening one, but after a while no one listened to it, oh well.  Anyway, I did my shopping at long last on Sunday, and finally got myself the Icewind Dale 3-in-1 box set, along with UFO Afterlight for 25 quid, as well as Shadow of the Colossus (9.99, down from 29.99... bargain!).  I also pre-ordered Bioshock and ET: Quake Wars, along with the pre-order pack for 1.99.  Also got myself PC Gamer and PC Plus as well as my other shopping stuff... spent about 60 quid on shopping, which should drop to about 40 next time round, taking mayo, ketchup, soap, magzines, etc into consideration.  I ended up shelling out a fiver on Colour Theory does Depeche Mode which was a downloadable album, but I got 2 CDs worth, which is a bargain!

So yeah, been pretty quiet, although I'm chuffed that I got SotC for a tenner, especially as the box art is lovely, and also I got 4 postcards, so it's all good. :D  It's really hot in my room so again I'm reduced to sleeping in the minimum amount of clothes as possible, heh.  I dislike stuffy rooms :|  I did counselling earlier today, made it in on time as well, yay!  Next week is the last counselling session I'll be doing as 1) I'll be in Ireland, and 2) the counseller I'm seeing will be gone for 2 weeks as well, so good timing!  On a side-note, I'm looking at taking a security course later on this year, so I can round myself out, and a better security  volunteer at next year's Castlepalooza, as well as eventually being able to apply those skills to being a Special Constable, or CampusWatch person.

Weird thing happened to me while shopping, mind although I'm thinking of writing it off as coincidence.  I made a wish at the fountain in Bexleyheath and I went to Asda and did my shopping, and when I was looking for Cravendale milk, I found one out of a pile of three, same for when I was looking for tiramisu.  Lastly, I was getting my normal microwave burger allotment of 2 when I saw that burgers that were normally about 1.50 each were going 3 for 3 quid, so I ended up having one of each, and a second BBQ rib one to make it 6, which I'm happy about, does mean I get to try them all out, even though I've tried most of them.  I dfo miss those huge (Rustlers) ones though with the relish sauce which don't seem to seem to be stiocked now, which is a shame, but oh well, at least my shopping is starting to get under control.  I'm also going to contribute a little more actively to my savings account, by doing about a fiver or a tenner a month, for emergencies.

I do need to sort out UEL as well...

Well, I did that meeting with Kate and suffice to say, I have a lot of thinking to do now, especially as she thinks I won't pass this year.  Additionally, she thinks that my problems aren't academic, which I agree with.  As of this moment, I uploaded all my PDP stuff except for 3 files, which I intend to do today, Bexleyheath can wait till later.  Anyway, today I got my Oyster card, which is pretty damn cool, means I can now save money, wehay!  Additionally, I got Hexplore and the TA pack thing which is good.  I moved Hexplore to my 2 slot DVD case, which Vangers was in, as it was only 1 DVD, then moved my new TA CDs to where my old TA CDs were, also using the x2 CD case for Core Contingency and Battle Tactics, which is handy, though I have a spare Core Contingency which I may sell on eBay... or may not.  Either way, I want to have some study done, as well as have all those files uploaded before Sunday, and ideally tomorrow.

Really haven't much else to say, save for the fact I'm looking forward to using my Oyster card for the first time... it does mean I'm savng more money now...

Well, here I am, albeit in a very laggy state.  I figured that today I should post, lag or not, given I will end up forgetting what I'm going to post.  Anyway, on Saturday... Saturday?  Sorry, Friday!  So, on Friday I went out to Eltham, seeing as I had some time to spare, given I missed my metting at 12pm, so I mooched around town (and in a few shops) for a bit (and got a "free" bus trip, although not really, given I had to buy a 1-4 travelpass), and managed to find a copy of Total Annihilation (TA) for 50p in a Scope shop!  Which was a bragain, until I realised one of the CDs from TA was missing, but at least I got the Core Contingancy, which goes for 26 quid on eBay, so it's not all bad.  I can get Battle Tactics and the original TA from eBay cheap enough, which is good.  The CDs are in good condition too, which is great.  Anyway, why do I want such an old game?  Well, to tell you the truth, playing Supreme Commander had me hankering for the good old days of TA, as although SupC (SC is taken by StarCraft) is a really good game (and was done by the same person), it doesn't have some features of it, which I missed.  Although that said, there are many similar features.

Anyway, moving swiftly on... I ended up being in Greenwich Uni. for about 13:45, so I decided to go to the labs, and prat about on eBay for a bit.  In the process, I found out that my password expired and needed to be changed, hence why I couldn't log in... damn Windows.  Anyway, I changed it now, so everything is back to normal, which is good.  I got talking to a guy behind me who had the same name as me and was working on a game, so we got to chatting about games and old systems.  After that, I went to see Virginia (Uni Disability Advisor), and we chatted for a bit abour stuff and my academic stuff... she was dreading hearing about the fact I was behind by 3 courseworks!  Thankfully, I'm still under EC for one, kinda hope I have enough time to submit it as well!  Anyway, we ended up having a chat about everything under the sun as usual, found out that Spooks was being filmed on campus, which was cool, although I didn't see much.  In case you didn't know, the University is used as a place for filming sometimes.  Anyway, moving swiftly on, I had to meet up with my mum... I was first gonna meet her at Stratford, at the DLR platform, but then I realised I should be getting her to go to the Jubilee Line platform to save her a trip, and then I realised I should get her to meet me at Canning Town, to save me going back on myself.

Anyway, we got to East India, and eventually found the hotel, which was pretty nice for a Travelodge... anyway, we went to Tottenham Court Road station and got there in plenty of time.  We had a bit of trouble finding the Astoria, though it was no trouble to find the Dominion at all, though the Astoria is kind of opposite in a sense.  Anyway, we took the subway (underground walkway) and went out the other exit and queued up, after being told we needed to go in through another door.  At one point, it seemed like I was the youngest attending, but later that ceased to be the case.  Either way, we got searched as we went in, for cameras I think, although strangely enough, lots of people brought their cameras, so I was gutted that I didn't bring mine... although I did take a few vids and pics on my phone which I may upload later.  Anyway, TD started a few minutes late, and I agree with my mum... they're the same live as they are on CD, although the only difference here is that TD get more of the money compared to CDs, as we all know the publishers and the MAFIAA/BPI get a lot of the money from CDs.  But hey, she's happy, and I'm in there for "best son ever", and she enjoyed it muchly.  Personally speaking though, between getting tired (standing for a while doesn't agree with me atm :|) and not being as interested in the new stuff overall, (although the guy singing was good, as were some of the songs) I seemed a bit uninterested, although I wasn't.

I did enjoy the older stuff more, although I thought a few things, or my mum did and I agreed (may be a few repeats):



  • Tangerine Dream is much better listening to sitting back, eyes closed and relaxed.

  • You cannot dance to them, despite what those two mad wans thought.

  • However, you can't help but tap your feet to some of their more upbeat songs.

  • They're the same live as they are on CD, though whether this is a good or bad thing is a matter of opinion.

  • They seem to have a large male following, seriously.  When mum pointed it out, I started to notice how few females there were!

  • Those that listen to TD are generally much more intelligent and open-minded on average.

  • When they did House of the Rising Sun, it was pretty damn cool.

  • You can feel the vibrations of the music while it was playing.

  • TD aren't as original as they once were, which may be why their new stuff didn't interest me so much.  I can only hope they do a Mike Oldfield and go back to the classic stuff, rather than doing a Jean Michel Jarre and trying to be modern.

  • The crowd much preferred the classic stuff compared to the new stuff.

  • And lastly, my mum got the impression that the Astoria was a place for gay people to go, and of course, this isn't the first time I've been involved in that sort of realisation - Manchester anyone?  I wouldn't mind checking the place out one night, mind... even if I'm not gay.


Anyway, it finished at about 21:30, and we nipped into Virgin to mooch around, where mum got 3 TD CDs she hadn't got (I'll rip them later, hehe), and I found out that I could have gotten some games for £10 cheaper in Virgin, rather than going to GAME, heh... live and learn.  Anyway, after that, we went looking for some grub.  Eventually found a place in Canary Wharf, after walking to there from Westferry, and having a mooch around - nice place Docklands is.  Anyway,  we went into the station because I couldn't find away into the shopping complex bit.  I spotted a Burger King upstairs (Canary Wharf has a shopping centre bit) and me being the quick thinking person I am used the DLR stopped at the platform to cross... not once, but twice, and with my amused and bemused mother in tow!  It certainly beats taking the long way round where I could have gotten lost!  Either way, I spent nearly 9 quid on a 3 Pepper Angus meal and Bacon Double Cheeseburger which was dinner, then after that I went to relieve myself, as you do of course, and I have to say, the toilets were a bit of an anti-climax.  Sure, you're prolly wondering what the fuck I am doing talking about toilets, but really, you'd be thinking the same as me if you walk up this fairly impressive-looking corridor only to find the toilets are dingy/manky yokes, and also a bit on the small side!

Anyway, enough about the bogs... after heading back to mum's Travelodge, and chilling for a bit, and reading the papers, I go to get the DLR, which I missed (schedule-wise) because I went up to the wrong place!  Luckily though, one was due a few minutes after.  Anyway, after determining where the stop I wanted was, I catch the 15 to Monument, and miss a bus going my way... hell, I even saw it depart, which was a pain, but I'm not about to risk my health for a sodding bus!  Anyway, I was able to breathe easy after getting on the good old N21, although there was a ruckus downstairs (only on the Night Bus!) which I was glad not to be anywhere near!  After all that though, I got in at 02:30, woke up at 09:30, found my internet was laggy as fuck, so played SupC for a bit and went back to bed, getting up at 19:30-odd, oops.  Either way, at least I got a decent sleep.  Saturday was a bit of a blur, mind.  All i remember was trying some baklawa which my flatmate Mohammad brought back from Birmingham, and then I gamed some more, till about 03:30, after which I go to bed and get back up at 06:55... and I've been up ever since, trying to deal with my myspace, Facebook and Tagged, and all are added now.  I also need to do my laundry at some point, though I have plenty of time for that, although no Asda trip for me as I haven't the money.  I did have a quasi-fryup though... I had fun microwaving rashers and cooking sausages in the oven, as well as nuking baked beans and having a few glasses of milk and OJ... I do think that's the "healthiest" breakfast I've had in a while, what with 2 intakes of fruit, some carbohydrates, lots of calcium, and a fair bit of protein, and for once, I'm actually not all that hungry either, although I may have a sausage and bacon thingy  later on... nice to know I can microwave bacon, as that cuts a fair bit of fat out, apart from on the rind, but ah well.

Anyway, I'm about to start on a PHP project, doing a website for a simming org I'm a part of, although I'm after checking for exams, and on the 8th of May, I have an exam in Systems Building, which earns an "Oh bollocks!" from me, then abut a week later, I have two more exams... fucking brilliant.  Then, to top it all off, I have those fucking resits to worry about! *sigh*  I have no idea how I'm going to cope with things at this rate, and this damnable lag isn't helping matters because I can't do a thing till it's sorted!

Coincidentally, I may wait till Monday to post this, if it doesn't work out :|
stormkeeper: Picture of a wolf (Default)
Well, I now have to wait till tomorrow to get C&C3, because I forgot where my wallet is, but oh well.  I now have a new mission in life though... I must have the first 6 Final Fantasy games on the DS and GBA... of course all that said though, I need to actually start playing them as well!  I also need to get a DS Lite as well... I dunno whether to trade in, or keep the old one so I can play multiplayer... I should stop wasting money though, so maybe I'll just sell it, heh.  What I may do though is sell off my old GBA and get a GBA SP, or not... I would sell off the second copy of Doom II, but then I'd not be able to play multiplayer, heh.

Decisions, decisions...
stormkeeper: Picture of a wolf (Default)
First of all, let's start with a quiz:




Your Psyche is Blue



You are deeply emotional and very connected to everything (and everyone) around you.

By simply understanding other people, you are able to help them heal and let go.

While you are a very deep and thoughtful person, you do have a very silly, superficial side.



When you are too blue: the weight of the world's problems hangs over you



When you don't have enough blue: you lack perspective and understanding



Secondly, I finally got my laundry out of the laundrette, which is good.  I also did some shopping today as well... cheapest shop ever; 18 quid!  Anyway, I'm now 24, so yay.  Never got Tiberium Wars yesterday so I'm getting it today, and it shall be my last "new" full priced purchase for months.  I also sold off my old copy of Dawn of War as I had the Game of the Year Edition free with Company of Heroes.  My only game purchases now will be limited to pound shop games, and games to decrease the footprint of my current collection, which I need to consider listing.  I want to do the same for movies as well, coincidentallly... I have a lot of cases that could be downsized, while keeping the games as well.

So far I twigged on that I can downsize:

Neverwinter Nights, Shadows of Unrentide and Hordes of The Underdark: 4.5 boxes to 3
Unreal, Unreal II, Unreal Tournament and Unreal Tournament 2003 (I think I have this still) and 2004: 5 to 1 or 2 (dunno if 2004 is covered)
AOE 2 Gold to AOE 1 & 2 Gold: 2.5 to 1 (I think)

I already downsized or have yet to complete:

Thief 1 & 2: 2 to 1
Broken Sword 1 & 2: 2 to 1


The benefits of downsizing is though that although it costs me more money to purchase the games, I do get a portion of the funds back from selling the originals, though admittedly not always half.  For instance, Dawn of War normal or GotY sells for 9.99 retail, but I only got £3 quid for it, though that said I got another 1.99 off, so it's worth either around a 3rd of the price or half the price.  Older games I'd be lucky to get 1 quid or even 50 pence for!  Thankfully though, the price of games has equally come down.  Either way, I expect that on average, I'll get about 1/4 to 1/3 of the value of what I invest after I'm done, which isn't all that bad, though if I do it right, then I could end up saving more.

With all that aside, I should say that I got Warhammer 40K: Dark Crusade and the toilet sprung a huge motherfucking leak, which can't be looked at till Monday, so I recommended that we used the other toilet.  What are the bets that we forget to mention it to Awami when he returns from Amsterdam?  If you see an entry stating "I told you so", you'll know why.  Asides from that, the usual madness that happens here goes on.  So yeah, nothing really all that different from last year, except I'll be completely sober and not dying this morning, plus I'll be getting Tiberium Wars: Kane Edition, hehe.  On a totally random note, it's quite nice to find £20 quid in your wallet that you just drew out to pay for your shopping last week., though that same £20 is now a fiver... gotta love student life. :|

HSBC are also fucking wankers... damn them and stealing my money!  I'm gonna look at switching over to Natwest when I get a chance.

I finally watch Blade Runner The Director's Cut, which just finised now... And while I right this, Vanghelis' Blade Runner Them plays in the background, which is a classic piece of music in its own way.  Anyhow, I knew quite a while before this film had finished that I'd be left wanting more, go figure.  Just as well I'm getting the box set soon when it comes out then.  I finally got around to getting my hair cut, and by god there was a lot of hair!  The hairdresser I went to even commented I looked like a new man with all that hair off!  Anyway, Saturday turned out to be a fairly decent day, considering I got to the pound shop and did my Asda shopping in time, although I had so much that I had to call a taxi, but oh well.  Either way, my upward curve has started, as I now have my Easter Holidays, although I have less than 48 hours to do my coursework, and although I'm sure I ca do it, I think it may be a bit hairy!  After that, I need to worry about my CCS coursework, but thankfully I've managed to pass Multimedia, although I have about 4 week to do CW3 as well, argh!

I was gonna wriite an entry for Friday and before, but I'll prolly just delete the filler entry (it's hidden) and just replace it here.  It will seem a bit random, but that's what happens when you write up one line topic summaries :P  Although, this said I'm writing this from a perespective of quite a while ago, so I guess current events will also be included, but it has to be done... anything to make it flow smoothly, though admittedly how many people actually read my ramblings?  Hard to say, but at the end of the day, not many - if at all - will understand them!


With all that out of the way, I now have to start coursework >_<

Goddammit!

Well, so much for today... I get my first early night in ages, and get up early, and as luck would have it, I feel like shit, and have some sort of cold or something... it sucks :(  So yeah, because today was such a spectacular failure, in every sense of the word, I'll be talking about yesterday, which was infinately better.  Anyway, I got myself a copy of Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes LE, which was quite good.  I now need to sell off my old copy of Dawn of War, because CoH has the GotY edition free with it.  I also did a little bit of shopping while I was out and about, getting a few things that I thought would be handy for me to get... ended up picking up 2 more £1 games as well, hehe.  Anyhow, I'm gonna have to call up the counselling people tomorrow, because I felt like shit today, and I'm also going to get my hair cut, and visit another UKCBer who lives nearby.  Additionally, I'm going to check out Well Hall Park while I'm in Eltham because the drive by's made it look nice, and I need an excuse to get outside, though I really should get my programming started on, as I've already missed the deadline for Systems Building, which I deliberately did.

Anyway, CoH is installed on my PC, and more than likely wouldn't play because of outdated drivers.  I updated them earlier today, so maybe it'll play now... well, it should, as this PC is the dogs bollocks in terms of gaming.  It's also the only PC I've successfuly kept relatively clean and in complete working order, which is amazing, because usually I forget to maintain it, though that said, I need to schedule regular defrags.  Anyway, I'll finish off the entry before this one, and then I'll be up to date.


I hate fucking colds though :|

Coincidentally, I'm working on a few nice ideas for Stormhaven, and additionally, FriendlyStorm IRC is the new name for FriendlyIRC ad Stormhaven IRC, as we're going uniform, or will eventually.

I almost forgot as well... I'm not getting my extenuation results for a while yet, so at least I know I'm not going mad, and unfortunately for me, in Asda, Nestle are the only ones that do condensed milk, which pisses me off a bit.  At this point, I'm wonder if my NEstle boycott has any point, as really I can't do much about it, heh.  Anyway, I did well not buying any products, except for the one time I needed a bottle of water...
