I have a friend called Clive. Like me, he is a gamer but I hate playing games with him. He is not a sore loser nor difficult to play with, he just takes a long time. This is because he works out the numbers. Years ago we were in a PBM game about American Fo...

I've not had the will to do much gaming stuff to day. In fact if I actually put down a post about what was going on it would probably read like a page from Bridget Jones' Diary.

No Real Clear Plan
At the moment I am struggling a bit. There was a plan but at the moment I am struggling with it all round. It doesn't help that I have jobs that I don't want to do so I end up putting everything off. Today I managed to get one of those jobs done. Most of my...
