work found myself giving a webcast about Stronghold which brought back memories of actually coding Stronghold back in 1995 or 1996. For the last 6 months or so I've been trying to resist coding on Stronghold, and for the most part I've managed it, although its tempting to dive in - it's so much easier to measure productivity when you're actually coding. After a couple of years in production it will be great to see it finally released. I'm probably off to N+I in Las Vegas in May which should be fun.

house nothing new from the builder or lawyers, so the house continues to have problems that don't get fixed. All the home automation stuff is working now, except the cute timer and dimmer touch-switches in the bathrooms which have a habit of dropping back to turning themselves off after one minute (which is quite annoying if you've just stepped into the shower). Found a cute wireless RF temperature sensor and timer for my heating system, contemplating getting that (US$150) or alternatively just hooking up a relay and temperature sensors in some rooms and having the PC do it.
