Let's give a big round of applause for Elysium and his fine work of keeping the site rolling along while I was out of town on business. I was expecting to find things in shambles but to my surprise I haven't found anything broken... yet. Being out of town put a crimp in my game time but I did manage to sneak in a few hours of Sim City 4. As expected, my first town was a total flop thanks to some whiney school teachers who wouldn't quit striking when the city needed to buckle down and cut some costs. The giant robot attack was a harsh lesson but let me tell you, the teaching force in New Hoochieville is very understanding when the city has budget concerns.
I'm pretty pooped so I think I'll cut this Coffee Grind short and hit the news. Have a great day!
