Postcards from GTA V

I like to start an evening session by being picked up by Byrn in his Declasse "beater" Tornado. Byrn had originally stolen the ol' Tornado during a heist and we made something of an "escape" in it, wheels spinning on sparking rims. Since then it's been a joy to be picked up in the beat-up old lump. Here we are sitting in Los Santos Customs. You can see the impeccable job the LSC team have done on it.

A chat and an escape on Discord

Work has been particularly worky recently (not in a bad way) and with Kate being more preggy (in a good way), I've needed to pick up on a bunch of things that she would normally do. You know, the little things like getting Felix to school, cutting of his crusts, making breakfast, etc.

MC - The evil multi-coloured sheep farm

South Castle is going to become a balloon dock and for that I want to make a few lovely balloons around the place. Rather than go all-white like Cloudship Atlantis, I wanted to use different colours. We have a reasonable sheep farm near Big Rob's Tower but it wasn't large enough to partition. I needed somewhere flat difficult to build on. The base of EMW's EVIL hand seemed ideal. Perhaps it was the evil that made the sheep multicoloured?

MC - South Castle update

Pottering along in our Minecraft Realm yesterday afternoon (amongst washing clothes and putting away camping crap), I managed to do quite a lot to South Castle.

I'm mostly sold with the idea of making it an airship/balloon dock/travel nexus. I'm going to make a new Airship over the top of it, with sheep-farmed wool. I'm going to create a new sheep farm with multi-coloured wool (you can dye sheep) for the purpose.

Rolling with Lack Of Inc

Lack of Inc, controlled by criminal CEO EvilMattW is new in town and has mixed fortunes. Here's what it's like to roll with EMW for an evening.

The Boss (EMW) invites you, no matter where you are across town. Here I am in a stolen Vigaro. You become his associate. Associate is not an employee - there's no National Insurance, no medical insurance. You are his bitch. But you do get 6 grand every so often.

Quadcopters - getting started with a nano/Tiny Whoop

I met up with Byrn and Aggro last night for a spot of quad flying on campus. Aggro got pretty good with the Inductrix but sadly Byrn was seeing blurry-vision through the goggles. Aggro was interested in what needed to be got, so here's the list of some tried and tested kit. I've grouped the stuff together. I'm stealing a bit from this great post here. Prices after the link.
