Little Rocket Man / Get Some Grub

A6BQXSMBXD9S [for Technorati, please ignore] If, like me, you are looking to round off your Half Life 2 Episode 2 achievements, you’ll want to have a look at the following two guides: Get Some Grub Not tricky, just time consuming. Have a look at Nibbles’ guide on GameFAQs (link), which painstakingly walks you through all […]

Linux Saves The Day

For those of you who don;t follow my other blog, I’m in Barcelona at the moment. I’m here to learn Spanish and chew bubblegum. And I’m all out of bubblegum, etc. Anyway, Linux let me get in touch with my dad. The short story is (if you want long walls of text, read my bit […]

One Week

So, as of yesterday evening, I’ve been here for a week. Since my last post I have moved out of the guest house. I’m grateful for this, the room was dark all day around (or light, if you put the single flourescent light on). It was adequate, but no more. I am currently staying with […]

Second Day

Another after-the-fact post. This is written at about 1420 on the 9th of November. Right. So after sleeping in this morning (my room has no external light and my phone had no charge) I went down to the nearest movistar shop to get a SIM card. Once again, I found the place mostly through luck […]

Arrival

This post is retroactively posted as there’s no wifi at the place I’m staying. It’s 2242 local time (so 2142 UK time), and by now I’ve arrived, checked in (kinda, more on that later) and eaten. Getting here was, well, interesting. Firstly, I saw Eddie Izzard at the MEN arena last night. He was pretty […]

Leaving Today…

Well, I’m actually leaving tomorrow… which is technically today. Actually, Sunday if you mean the country. But still the strains of the Divine Comedy’s mournful leaving song echo in my ears. My work got me a going away card + cake(s) + present, which was jolly nice of them. The card was especially lovely: Aww. […]

More Fail from the DM

I’m referring chiefly to this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1224858/Yes-scientists-good-But-country-run-arrogant-gods-certainty-truly-hell-earth.html, which even had a picture of Hitler (now removed, but not forgotten) to go along with the comparison of Prof Nutt to Nazi scientists. I’m also referring to this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-1224578/MELANIE-PHILLIPS-Fatuous-dangerous-utterly-irresponsible–Nutty-professor-whos-distorting-truth-drugs.html, in which Confused Spice Mel P (Melanie Phillips) says Prof Nutt is being unscientific. So you know what? I’m […]

Finally, A Real Pin

The title of this post conveniently ignores all the other pins I’ve earned, which must be at least…. for certain… that I know of… to be sure… 1 other. If not more. Maybe. Anyway, having earned pins in games such as the Battlefield series, it was interesting to actually get one. What’s more fun is […]
