Blog done

After the best part of a year getting around to it my blog is finally up and running. Most definitely a work in progress. But at least it doesn’t look like a bag of shit.

Not enough time

Currently staring at an ever-increasing pile of Xbox 360 games that I may/may not get to start/finish playing due to:

3. the fact that I am the praod owner of a 5 week old baby boy and a 2 year old lad.

4. the fact that I’ve return to play Eve Online after a six year absence and I’m spending to much time mining scordite.*

* I’m even mining scordite whilst writing this at 2am.
