I'm also glad to hear that everything is ok over there with you and everyone else. Good to see that everyone goes back to their daily routines. I also like when I see people come out and help others when these things happen. It makes me think of this quote I heard once, but I can't remember it word for word, but goes something like; people are at their best when things are at their worse.

There were genuine scenes of people trying to help, but armed response units shut everything off. The emergency services pretty much took over so the average Joe could only stand back and watch.

One thing I did witness was a group of angry commuters, verbally abusing the police as they needed to use the public transport to get to important meetings! Umm... like, hello? I think those waiting for you will be pretty understanding!

But hey, thanks Corp! I've finally sorted out the dodgy keyboard/mouse/RAM issue, and have succesfully reinstalled the game. I've just played a few sessions of the server and everything seems to be fine.

I'm back, baby!

Last time I played the server was around April, possibly March, so it really has been quite some time.

Basically, the computer hassles mentioned above combined with the evils of job hunting and auditioning were taking their toll, so I completely uninstalled the game from my system. Thankfully, things are rather stable now.

But yes, let's get back on topic...

As I said before, the actual day of the bombings caused a lot of confusion. We all thought initially it was a series of power failures, that was until the BBC decided to anaylse the patterns and broadcast that it was most certainly a deliberate event. But here's the funny thing - the local nutters here weren't putting the blame on everyone who wears a turban (sadly, that seems to be the way of the world at the moment), but were in fact blaming it on the French! They claimed it was a retalliation to the news the day before that the UK was getting the 2012 Olympics instead of France! Honestly.... it just beggars belief how some people react to things.
