I've not really been doing stuff that feels worth talking about recently - playing quake4, doing genealogy research, doing housework, hanging out online talking to people. Things that are useful or interesting to me or fun, but not so much to post about. So I've not really been posting (as has probably been obvious ;) ). Tho if I was in the habit of posting more often then I'd have little things to talk about that I forget when I save everything up ...

I'm gradually teaching myself to strafe-jump in quake4. This'd go a lot faster if I could be bothered to sit down & practice, but that bores me, so I've not been doing that, just trying to get the hang of it while I'm playing. In other tangentially-quake4-related stuff, the drama llama paid a visit to one of the irc channels I hang out on the other week, but it thankfully didn't actually involve me (other than tangentially with someone getting offended on my behalf *sigh*), and it seems to have gone away now ;)

We finally got round to getting some of the house-stuff sorted out that we've been meaning to do for ages - got builders coming in on Tuesday to sort out the loft (more insulation, more roof supports, boarding). And got a painter coming at the end of August to paint the windowsills etc on the outside of the house (which is long overdue :/).
