Desktop Tower Defence

Lorna warned me off of this, but I didn't listen. The most simple of games, luring and addictive, give it a shot.

(hehe!! This feels like Halloween 3, with the silver shamrock egging everyone on to just try it. The consequences are horrific (but in a cheap sort of 80's horror way)).

Should you double unbracket when writing? I never know...

Off to Berlin

I'm at a conference for the next 3 days in Berlin, specifically at the Estrel Conference Centre to attend the Business Insight 2007 conference.

Looking forward to some of the content at the conference, but will miss the family... At least I get to buy a cool toy for them or something similar on the way back!!!

PS - Bryan Adams was awesome. Really good old skool rock concert. :-)

Bryan Adams

Off to see him at the SECC tomorrow night with Allie. Promises to be a really good gig I think!

New house, nearly...

So the survey came back on the house, and none of this I expected...

- £60000+ for wiring, heating, windows, slate and plastering
- £60000+ for rebuilding the bulging gable end wall
- dry rot in existing extension
- damp in 3 rooms
- a few windows which need replaced
- conservatory is rotten, needs pulled
- kitchen is harder to access for construction than I'd thought

Must have been the best £650 I've even spent! Nearly bought a disasterous house!

So we are back to the question of whether we extend the existing property or continue to look.
