I had a game of Civ the other night, first one in ages – and absolutely trounced Turnip, which is always gratifying. I do need to switch games, though, if I’m going to progress on the novel (or even just on this blog).

That said, HOMMV is out, and I did quite like its predecessors. Crap.

NB: People who think that 8 meg broadband is ridiculous should try downloading the 700 meg HOMM V demo – its taken over an hour, even with my ridiculous DSL-link. FYI I’ve upgraded to DoubleSpeed from Bulldog (hoping for more than the advertised 16 meg), and will no doubt let you all know what kind of difference it makes when it kicks in next month.
