True mumblings, from a junior doctor...

Braid - completed

FInished. Worth it.

Still not sure I get the resolution, but still well worth the effort.

Beautifully done.


Just picked up Braid for the mac.

Oh my god it's awesome.

It's also damn annoying, but for about £7 - so so worth it.

If you haven't tried/heard about it, it's originally an XBox 360 Live Arcade Game, then ported to the PS3 and the PC/Mac. In it you play a guy called Tim who's rescuing a Princess he lost through a mistake. The gameplay is essentially platforming puzzle-tastic, but crucially each level is a puzzle where you manipulate time to achieve the result and each world has a different mechanism. I'm yet to finish it, and I've been playing pretty hard over the last few days. Often the puzzle answers are clear but how to effect them is not!

Probably the best game I've played in ages, including things like Modern Warfare 2 and GTA 4...

Buy it, you will definitely NOT regret it.


Sometimes you finally realise what you miss most...

Your friends.

Much love everybody!

Xmas... Time of giving

Would love to. If only could find the time to do so!

Companion to Specialist Surgery

What On Earth? The 8 book mega-set of the 4th edition is MORE expensive than buying them individually! By £70ish! What do elsevier and their WB Saunders imprint think they're doing? I know the print price is £75, but no one is selling it or that - £60 is about standard on Amazon. Still even if you do buy from their site at £75 per book you're unlikely to lose much cash compared to the boxset!

Lambeth Council are idiots

Sometimes you just have to wonder...

To park in Lambeth you need a permit. Fair enough. To get this permit you essentially have to provide DNA evidence of who you are and where you live. Again understandable if over zealous, especially for renewals (when they have the tenants details and so on).

However, to get said permit you have to do battle. Not with the poor (very friendly and helpful) staff in your local council office but with 'the network' which is always down. This means the only place to reliably get a parking permit is Brixton, which is a battlefield both due to busyness of the office and understandable staff frustration.

Why there is no other way I do not know. Why the network appears to be a problem I don't know but maybe they just don't like their residents. Or they don't care!

No sleep for the wicked

Apparently wards in hospital are noisy busy places - BBC News

No shit sherlock.

This is possibly the most obvious piece of information I have ever learnt!
