So, I've accepted a job with Prisym ID as a Senior Software Developer. Hurrah. That's one thing sorted. I start on the 19th, which gives the little lad some time to arrive. He'll be late so go knows when I will start.
While watching the superb Gameswipe from Charlie Brooker it occurred to me that all those nay saying reports of gaming ruining children and turning them into psychopaths is just bollocks. It's a bollocks now as it was then.
So, we've done our last National Childcare Trust (NCT) meeting and all the NHS healthcraft lessons, so we're 'ready'. Of course, no one is ready when the baby actually arrives but I'm ready enough. We know what we want when Kate goes into labour - did you know that there are lots of choices?
Arranging get-togethers can be a real pain. Spontaneity has gone out the window. I find myself only spending time with people to engage in a given activity. This is bad, this is wrong. I have a solution:

Bob Dylan sang:
Come gather 'round people

Or you'll sink like a stone
Fallout 3 can sap hours of your life. After doing all the hard labour required of me this weekend, I thought I'd treat myself to some Fallout 3. The Mrs was sparko on the sofa, so why not! This is my second time through, the first I played a goody-two-shoes and went off piste for hours at a time, blithering about. Now I'm playing a Pete at his most evil. It's a stretch, I know.
My list of 412 defects, issues, updates, graphics, improvements and modifications is now down to two:
- Add four more Operatives
- Operative Pictures
Except for performing the release, it's all I need to do before the next Beta game. I need 6 Operatives in total and I have three so far:
I want to be a writer. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. I've written a few things before. Most of you will know about Icar, a while back I wrote an unfinished story about a hit man called Tomorrow's Keeper. I tried to revisit it but my writing has moved on a long way since. Sorry to those that wanted to know how it finished. Buggered if I knew.
