Hello world, it's been a while since we spoke. It is 6:30am as I'm writing, but I have been awake and drifting since around 5am (having previously woken at 2am but gone back to sleep) so I am calling this "night" and "insomnia." Hot chocolate is in the making, and I will head back to bed after drinking and posting.

We are approaching the deadline for a competition aka the chance to have some work to do after the summer. The project looks pretty good: the plan is clean and simple, room layouts are efficient, it should even be fairly economical to build and operate. Next weekend will be tough, probably 30 hours' work.

Other than that, work on the still-current project is proceeding in fits and staggerings. Things are going wrong, many of them our fault. (It's always our fault, in the end: the architect is responsible for the errors and omissions of all other trades, including those of the experts who advised us. The situation is reminiscent of Josef K: "He's guilty! Now, what's the charge against him?")

I'm spending a lot of time in SL and WoW. I have recreated my more successful characters on a different server in order to game with some SL buddies who are there, and have got my favourite — a holy paladin named Woglinde — up to level 32. The game gets easier and more enjoyable as one rises through the levels.

Time is behaving oddly. I can't believe that it hasn't yet been a month since I returned from holiday! This feels like mid-March at least. I don't know whether to be glad or worried that the calendar is lagging so far behind my perception.

Welcome back. I hope work is enjoyable and not just time consuming and a place to wait between on line sessions.
