Yesterday was shopping day ... went into town, mostly to get a single for J and reserved a copy of Civ4 in HMV while I was there. They think it's due out on Nov 18, but amazon think it's out on Oct 21. I hope amazon's right! I spent a large chunk of yesterday evening reading about it on CivFanatics, so now of course I want the game NOW, damnit ;) Bouncebouncebouncebouncebounce!

I did do improving things yesterday, too - read a bit of Programming Perl, for the first time in ages. Meant to be reading a chapter a day for a while, but I misjudged it last night and started too close to bedtime, so didn't get all the way through the chapter. Mostly that was because I stopped so we could watch something on BBC4 about Palaces - part of a series, this episode was about Signs of Life in the palaces, like witchmarks in Kew and graffiti in the Tower of London. Unfortunately, it was a bit like My First Documentary - there was very little that was actually interesting in what was said, it might've been that it needed to be better scripted, or just to get people who are good at telling people things rather than being the people with the actual job of doing the work. I don't think we'll bother with the rest of the series.

Also did iconny things, I've entered everything I'm bothering with this week - though iconartistic has a new competition up now.

And read about Civ4, did I mention that? ;)

I've got tokens for HMV though ... though I have a dilemma now - J found it's really cheap on Play (who have yet another release date down, too), and if I got it from Play then we would maybe use the tokens to pick up Quake 4 as we'll want two copies of that ...

I'm really looking forward to Quake 4. Having recently played through Half-Life and Half-Life 2 I need something new to get my teeth into.

Oh, that's a better price than amazon had *cancels and orders from play instead*:)

The whole icontest thingy really tries my patience! LOL! I like sharing my work, but not being able to until voting is closed and winners are announced gets to be rather tedious for me :) I guess it's good practice in the art of patience!

Good luck with the latest comps :)

As for that documentary you watched... the IDEA of it sounds really cool, but yeah... when things aren't well done, DEFINITELY decreases viewing pleasure :(

Yeah, I get fidgety about wanting to show people what I made :) The most annoying one for me currently is blendify__ coz it seems to have just vanished for a while, I guess the mod has either got a life, or life turned pear-shaped or something.
