A trip to the LBS today saw a set Light & Motion Seca 700 Race lights come home with me, I’d finally got bored with waiting for the Hope lights to arrive so bit the bullet. They’ve been charged, briefly tested in a dark house, and weather permitting will be christened on Wednesday evening.
I also fitted a slightly longer stem to the Unit to go with the H-Bars, and thanks to the summer flooding of Chain Reaction have ordered the parts to convert the Bontrager Race X-Lite wheel on the back of the 69er to 10mm RWS bolt-through which is rumoured to cure the annoying creaking.
The rest of the day was spent playing Lego Batman which is fantastic, almost as good as Lego Star Wars, and far far better than Lego Indiana Jones.
After another few hours work I’ve now collected all 160 gold bricks in Lego Star Wars. Technically I’ve still only done 88.5% of the game, but there’s nothing left to gain, only those last few percentage points.
Time for Lego Indiana Jones?
I spent a fair amount of time this weekend working my way through more of Lego Star Wars, I’ve just got the last two sections of Return of the Jedi to finish on free play, then most of the Bounty Hunter Challenges to complete. I’d nearly finished the last-but-one section and was down to the last cannister, when the PS3 decided to freeze meaning a reboot and a wasted 30-minutes of playing. I’ll try again one evening this week, then it’ll be time for Indiana Jones.
I worked my way thorough Episode IV tonight, and also had an online game with Steve for a short while using the Bluetooth headset which makes things a lot easier.
It’s GTA4 day tomorrow, hopefully mine will arrive in the post at some point during the day.
…and ordered Grand Theft Auto IV in advance of it’s release next week. Several people at work actually have the day booked off work so they can play it all day.
Steve and I did at least get an online game working, although it’s not much use until my Bluetooth headset turns up.
The RSPCA did their final cat visit this evening as well, Mulder and Scully behaved perfectly and even went up and asked to be stroked.
It’s viciously addictive. Shame Steve and I couldn’t get an online game going.
Update: 6 hours playing in the end. Classes C and B are cleared, and I’ve started on class A. The on-line racing is kind of fun as well, I even managed to win one race.
