Bah. Logjam just lost my entry and I'm not sure why it died - I just pushed the mouse back over the window, hit return twice and started to type ... and it hung. Oh well.

Anyway, most of what I was saying was that I'd sorted out our bookshelves and managed to find homes for all the books we'd bought in the last year or so. There's about 30 or so that I need to box up, and 9 that we're getting rid of - we'll be taking them off to one of the charity shops, but if anyone wants one (I wouldn't recommend any of them) here's a list:
  • Ian Irvine "The View From the Mirror" quartet
  • Robert Heinlein "I Will Fear No Evil"
  • Chris Grant "The X files: Goblins"
  • Helen Dunmore "Burning Bright"
  • Chris Bunch "Seer King" (book 1 of the Seer King trilogy)
  • Paul Barnett "Strider's Galaxy"

I think I also said how it was finally too hot for me - I like the heat and I like summery weather, but a day where it's in the mid-30s celsius is just a little too much for me. I've even had to wear my hair up, it's been too hot. I think the temperature is supposed to drop somewhat tomorrow, still be sunny and hot but below 30°C again.

And that was where I'd got to when it ate my post.

I've kinda lost my train of thought though - I think I intended a whinge about how I don't like Western Quake, but I cba to whinge now, so just imagine it, OK?

To be fair, I think I'd recommend the Chris Bunch book - I just don't think I'm likely to re-read it.

Why don't you like Western Quake?

I saw the end of The Magnificent Seven on Saturday, that kind of fitted.

Oh, it's all the bits of Q3A I'm pants at ... you know, aiming weapons and stuff ... with that limited ammo one can't just run through guns blazing and hope to kill someone with sheer firepower alone, so everyone sits and snipes (obviously) and I'm pathetic at that ;)

My problem with it was my inadequacies, not the game's ;)

I would say "me too" to all of that, as that's how I felt after the first time I played. I've played a few games against bots since then, and now I kinda enjoy it.

The worst part of my game is aiming - I can do the sneaking and the firing bit, but while I manage to hit people's legs, they've shot me in the head and won ;) Still can't stop playing though, sucked in now ;)

That LogJam lockup bug drives me nuts, but it really isn't my fault! They (reportedly) fixed it in GTK 2.2.3, so it shouldn't happen again if you upgrade...
