I've claimed Resogun and Contrast via PS+ and I have to admit, Resogun is pretty damn good. It *is* only a Defender clone though, underneath the admittedly extremely pretty graphics.

The Vita link-up thing works amazingly though. Last night I went to visit the missus who's now living on the other side of the county from me - she was surprised to see me when she knew I had a new toy at home to play with. So I allayed her fears that I was perhaps growing up or something similar by producing my Vita from my bag and continuing to play Resogun via the Internet.

Truly, it is the future.

The weather is utter crap, I'm soaked and I have a song by Craig David stuck in my head.

Kill me now.

Almost finished wrapping my presents but I'm really stuck on the finishing touches. If only I had a bow selecter.

And as a consequence, we now have severe flooding warnings in Leatherhead.

Bloody Craig David. Bo Selecta.

I worry that Google thinks I am stupid as I search for things like "How do snakes get to islands".

Snakes can swim. I knew that - you should have asked me. Of course, many island snake species would have been there since the land was still joined to the mainland and evolved somewhat or remained close to if not the same as those on the mainland in accordance with both timescale and survival pressures.

But anyway, next time you can bypass Google and ask me instead, and then I will think you are stupid :kiss:

Craig David is a problem wherever he goes, not just 1st world.

Looking at the car park ticket you're about to leave on your dashboard and realising you entered an incorrect digit when you keyed in your registration number and that if you don't pay for another one you'll receive a charge from the pirates who run the parking company, demanding £100 for not purchasing a ticket.

Snakes can swim, but I'm not sure they're up to crossing the sort of distances that separate some islands from the mainland.

SOME islands, yes, of course, but as above there were several methods given including population before land mass depression, etc, then there is also introduction (purposeful or otherwise) by humans.

But I have seen a snake swim to an island. For real. David Attenborough was there explaining it to me. Kind of hazy memory now, uh-hm!

1. I went to the shops yesterday to buy chocolate covered raisins, they didn't have any so I got some yogurt covered ones instead.
2. When I opened the raisins, it turned out they were nuts.
3. There are no not-raisins left.

I'm in a Travelodge in Glasgow. I'll probably be here every week until Foojitsu can find a permanent engineer to replace one who's just resigned, which could be a couple of months or longer.

Travelodge offer 30 mins free wifi per 24 hours, or you can pay £3 per day for 24 hour access. Foojitsu won't pay for wifi as we use iPass on our laptops, which allows us free wifi access in many places that charge for wifi. This used to work perfectly well when I joined the company in 2013, then Travelodge decided not to allow iPass access for a while, and then they started again. But now I have to re-enable iPass every 30 mins because Travelodge somehow manages disconnect it every 30 mins.

I could pay for uninterrupted wifi, but I'm on an economy drive, so I'm putting up with fiddling with iPass every 30 mins.

I spent far too long yesterday looking for a new kitchen radio that neither looked cheap and plasticy nor was expensive and, frankly, ugly. It's just a speaker, a display, and some controls but it seems this is sufficient to defeat modern designers.

Eventually settled on an expensive brush metal thing that was the least offensive to the eye but still feel I'm paying more than I should for something that's going to be on an average of twice a day. At least it has Bluetooth so I can listen to podcasts when cooking if there's nothing else on.

Not sure what you paid of if you can take it back but..

Have you thought about an Echo? They are £99 now, you can access pretty much any radio via Tunein. It will also support Bluetooth from your phone.

Only thing I'm not sure off is if you need a Prime account for this to work, I have one so never checked what you get with Echo using a standard Amazon account.
