Today is the day. It's the longest night of the year and from tomorrow on the days will become longer again. Sitting at home and recovering from a few operations, this is going to be one sad christmas, so I need something to do.
So it had to be something old. Something trhat I had skipped and that has enough content to last a while. After a perverse download of updates (about 20 Gig), I have this now ready to go: Fallout 4[^]. They actually have a suit of power armor (with almost dead batteries), a minigun and a Deathclaw to get a level 2 character to get started and have some fun.

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
