Another lovely pre-spring day - sunny enough to put the washing out on the line, even if it wasn't quite warm enough to dry it all by half past five when I fetched it in as the sun dipped behind candy floss clouds.

Working at home was reasonably productive again. The usual pile of emails to trawl through, then a tech review on a specification to write up and finally putting back some bits of functionality that had been taken out in the last release. It does make me realise just how noisy it is in the office though, with phones ringing and general chatter going on.

In games news, I have been enjoying Uniwar which I picked up for free yesterday. It's a classic hex grid based strategy war game with an interesting mix of units to choose from. It's nothing revolutionary, but very well presented and perfect for playing on-line with time to think about what you want to do on each turn.

It's certainly a better implementation of an online game than the Assassin's Creed II multiplayer, which is a nice idea but it takes so long to match you up (even in so called quick play) that I have only played precisely one game so far. It would be fun if they could get this sort of stalking targets style of multiplayer in the xbox version though.

Anyhoo, tis Friday night - huzzah!
