I forgot to set my alarm last night, and as a result ended up sleeping in, which wouldn't have been too bad except I had to wait twenty minutes for a bus. I finally get in and nobody seems to care that it's nearly 10. Suddenly I gain a greater appreciation for the relaxed atmosphere in the office.

I'm back doing automation scripting again, now for more boxes than ever. It's fun, writing a script, then running it continuously while slowly wringing out all the bugs. Though occasionally I end up spending a while trying to figure out a problem, and eventually have it fixed by altering a single character, or modifying one command. Though even in these circumstances it's a damned sight better than doing nothing productive.

Lately I find myself longing for the old computer wargames I used to play. The old Total Wars, Total Annihilations and Dawn of Wars. I'll have to start playing a few friendly games with friends online when I get somewhere for my computer and some free time. I have a feeling that won't be for many months though.
