Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - Devourer of Time

David and I were supposed to have had a network games weekend down in Horsham. Well, we spent the weekend playing PC games alright, just without the networking bit. Yep, we both got our copies of GTA: Vice City just before the weekend and we spent most of it playing Vice City separately but constantly swapping tips and discoveries.

By 'eck, Vice City's good. As brilliantly twisted, funny and amoral as its predecessors and well tweaked to remove some of GTA3's oddities ie rampages now remain and can be retried if you fail them. Also disturbed David somewhat with my knowledge of 80s music from the soundtrack ("no, that's Self Control by Laura Branigan").

Gah. Between this and Vietcong, I can see all my spare time being already spoken for for the forseeable future. And I'm supposed to start this new German project sometime this week and need to get ready for Silver Arrow...

And, just to finish off, a quiz nicked from Jackie, Kristen and others:
virgo
You should be a Virgo, Analytical, rational, fair,
methodical, talented, planner, hardworking,
discriminating, tasteful, motivated, reserved,
intelligent, creative, orderly, structured,
but can be critical, rigid, sarcastic,
snobbish, narrow-minded,

Someone at Toshiba needs a bloody good kicking...

ARGHHHH!!!!!



For the third time, my Toshiba e740 PocketPC having the following "design features" has caused me major aggro:
  • No backup battery
  • Battery disconnect switch similar in appearance and adjacent to the wireless LAN power switch


Yep, I disconnected the battery when I meant to turn off the WLAN yet again. Now, time to test my backups...

And then time, I think to start finding the names of the people on the team that designed this. Depressing thing is that this all-time dumbass design cockup aside, the e740 is actually a wonderful piece of kit.
