Really racking up those airmiles

I've done a fair amount of flying this year. I've been round the world once on my own money with byrn and am doing pretty good on the company by almost immediately heading back to southern California after getting back from the world trip. Now on the theme of a bit beyond a joke I've got to fly out to the US again for at least a week and I only got back from the last trip a week ago.

Here's to the new job same as the old job

So I started in a new position at work today, I was supposed to start last week but due to having to fly out to the US on short notice I was doing other things instead. Ostensibly I will be working for sales as the companies new (and at the moment only) Software Applications Engineer (or self addressed envelope) for EMEA (which is Europe, the Middle East and Africa but mainly just Europe).

You will probably by now have been subjected to the huge number of paranoid ravings on the radio tv and now as part of a poster campaign (http://www.met.police.uk/campaigns/campaign_ct_2008.htm) about terrorism and how we must all spy on our neighbours and report them no mater what since we aren't to know what is suspect and what is not.

Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed is one of the most hyped games of the year right up there with Halo 3 and Bioshock. I got my copy of the 360 version yesterday. From the team that wrote the wonderful Prince of Persia:Sands of time this new game from Ubisoft Montreal puts you in the role of a assassin called Altaïr in the time of the third crusade.
