Xbox Live is great. It's like Web 2.0 with guns. You get to meet people from many different countries and cultures and then engage them in battle. Or, and this is my favourite bit, team up and fight alongside them against complete strangers.
And it's only £5 a month. A fiver to kick whiney, American teenagers' asses for hours on end*. What's not to like?
It's a terrible distraction tho' and I can only apologise for the lack of any activity on the blogging front. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
Coming soon, "Pitlochry Redux - A tale of hills unclimbed, pies and killer ducks".
*Or, by turns, have your ass kicked by little girls with too much time on their hands.
