Matt Jones (who has a nice article in EDGE this month on games and design) just showed me this picture:
That’s my country. See that swirly bit in the bottom right? That’s where I live. This shit is deeply incorrect.
Been offline five hours, due to my ISP assuming my upgrade purchase was actually a request to completely bollocks up my broadband provision. Back online now, but no faster than before. But spending an hour on the phone to tech support has blown out my voice, so fuck it, I’ll save that argument for tomorrow.
Having lost the first third of the day to all this, I’m about to go in search of coffee and food before trying to rescue the rest of it. I need to write some SUPERGOD today, as we’re in the last leg of that project. I also need to write a short teaser-style page for a TV project, and look over a shedload of material I’ve just been sent on a new and very strange project I was contacted about at the start of the week. In addition to that, this flu-type bug is still hanging on, and tonight I think I need to kill it with alcohol.
And it seems I have five vast emails from Ariana to look at. She’s been Scheming again, it seems. Which always makes me nervous. She’s handy with a spanner, you know.
