Update: Businees Trips and Gaming

Alright, so I haven't posted in a while. I've been up to my tonsils with my current projects in work and busy with things at home. Things have gone quiet momentarily which I like for the moment. I've changed the look of the Blog Page, I really didn't like the old look, it was too dark and had a bit of a 90's webpage look about it. I still don't like this one too much, I'll eventually have to make my own bitmaps.

Last week I was away on a business trip to Venice. My first business trip ever, I was so happy and excited. I was also mad anxious and worried about being good enough for the task in hand. Basically I was sent to oversee the manufacturing tests for the boards that I helped to design. The test plan was written by yours truly so I was anxious to see how accurate and correct my tests would be. It all went well, I successfully aided the bring-up and I was very successful. One week all expenses paid, huge meals of amazing Italian food and wine, long days of working and I was knackered but very satisfied. I celebrated with a bottle of Venetian Bellini with my lovely girlfriend upon arriving home and proceeded to sleep for as much of the weekend as possible.

Games I've been playing lately. Since last time I updated here, I bought, played and finished Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Starcraft. I just started playing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 and I'm very excited to see what the sequel has in store for me. I'm building up for the release of Star Wars: The Old Republic game coming out sometime in 2010.

I've also gone and bought, Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon. I played the first two and enjoyed them. But that was back in the day of the point and click adventure. Am I beyond that now? Will it still be enjoyable? I'll let you know as soon as I start.
