I was very thankful in my urban area when, during the 10-day December storm broadband outtage, that there were plenty of unsecured wireless networks in the area that I could use.

Everyone is secured around me.

On a very self indulgent note, I listen to this station (The Eagle) and they're having a listener request weekend where you can submit a 5 song set. They liked mine (wheee) and are playing it on Sunday around 1 pm.

I picked: Only Time Will Tell (Asia), Just What I Needed (Cars), Lonely Is The Night (Billy Squier), Bicycle Race (Queen) and Roundabout (Yes).

I'm excited

I'm about to go and do some rehearsal accompaniment for a new musical entitled Kiddy-Fiddler On The Roof. One could say that the subject matter is slightly controversial.

Sounds like the best subject matter ever!!

There used to be a few unsecured wireless networks around about, but now they've mostly been supplanted by secure ones named "BTHomeHub-F54D" and the like. Damn you BT and your secure-by-default, easy-to-use products!

The thread has many storylines.
Some are more obvious than others.

I thought this seemed familiar, so I did a search and found I was right. Turns out it was Robert that started it last time, too:

Ring composition. The Thread™ has now reached its natural conclusion.

But it hasn't come Full Circle yet.


That said, I am now going to recommend "Mind's Eye" which really is a truly outstanding Adventure game, and deserving of the AGS Awards it got (Best Animation in an AGS game, and Best Character Art in an AGS game, but I also think the story is great. I seem to have a thing for games in an asylum where you play one of the inmates. Hmmm...I should get back to playing Sanitarium one day...). Also, I like the look of the main character, as well as his character. I generally seem to like characters that seem to have shaggy black hair that hardly lets you see their eyes, and a beard. Really, if there's a character like that around, they're often some of my favourite characters, for some uncertain reason. I guess I just like that design.

So go play it already! (If the insanity scenes are too slow on your computer, you might want to change the settings so that you use 16 bit instead of 32 bit graphics.).
