HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROB, YOU OLD BASTARD!
You must have played it. There must be someone on here that has.
I was just idly dreaming and wandering along the route my mind was apt to take when I remembered a game that peaked my imagination many years ago.
Just found out I've been promoted.
This means a chunk more money, no more overtime pay but a healthcare package instead.
Far more importantly, it means I'm not longer an Intermediate Engineer. I've never liked that job title. Senior Engineer is much better.
Right. Matt and I are currently sat in a hotel in San Francisco. In order to allow to follow our progress we've (well, Matt has, I just pestered him) set up a section of the main Badger website to take our updates and also our Picasa feeds.
These have also been added to the RPB RSS feed ;)
I am getting stuck into that game that none of you had played before and never will (TGTNOYHPBANW). I'm writing this entry really as a public announcement such that I will bloody well get TGTNOYHPBANW up and running and into a Beta game. Please feel free to use this post as a reason to hassle me.
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.
The outlaws left Lower Earley this morning to be en-route to Cambodia. Two years in Cambodia working for the VSO. They were all very excited this morning, trying to screw every last kilo out of their luggage allowance. we'll see them again in August when they return for a wedding, so it's not going to be too long. They do have a Blogger account but I can't find the damn thing at the moment.
Like a complete idiot I ran the Reading Half again yesterday. as you may remember last year I just missed my target time of 1 hour 30, by a measley 12 seconds. I know it doesn't sound like much, but there is a big mental thing about the 90 minute barrier on half-marathons
