|06:33 pm - No-one reads posts on Sunday anyway, right ?|
Whew. I think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend (plus the past week). Very busy week at work - it was my turn to do all the various manual processes for our data warehouse feeds and things, and there are zillions of them. I was also on call, although that was mercifully quiet during the week. Didn't escape so lightly over the weekend, with a DR test at one of our data centres, so I've been called and/or doing stuff on and off until around 4ish today, when finally all of our jobs were caught up and it was time for the backups to kick off. That was the cue for rwrylsin and I to wander off to the gym for an hour, attempting to stay in shape for upcoming fencing events.
Meanwhile I've been playing Oblivion
obsessively for hours on end a bit, and I think I'm enjoying it more on the new laptop - it makes combat much easier if it doesn't turn into a slow slideshow, and the pretty moments (e.g. views from the mountains) are very very pretty.
The next few weeks are going to stay busy - rwrylsin and I are going to a Sonata Arctica concert next week, then off to London for rwrylsin's birthday on the weekend. The weekend after that we have the GWEFC 48er (an all-pools foil tournament) and possibly a visit to The Garden of Cosmic Speculation if we can fit it in. After that, we're off to Paris, where I'm competing in the Challenge Monal, an FIE A-grade epee tourament (eek ! whee !).
After that, hopefully we'll have a quiet week or two to recover !
Current Mood: busy
No-one reads posts on Sunday anyway, right ?
Phew - sounds like fun, but you're going to *need* some recovery time after that lot!

Speaking of Oblivion, did you see my comment to your previous post about it?
I did ... and then failed to reply, sorry !
I've ended up with a selection of mods, from recommendations here and there, and browsing mod sites.
Some for better appearance (Qarl's textures, some other vegetation and weather changes, a few small things for gold and soul gems, etc), some functional (Kobu's character advancement, extra hotkeys, BTmod), and ... random others. Droppable torches, auto-harvesting ring, a couple of houses, clocks, and so on.
Also tried including Francesco's various mods (leveled creatures, new creatures/items, various changes to level of encounters), but the game was crashing when I tried to leave the initial sewers, and stopped crashing after I disabled that (and a couple of others).
