M1 around Leicester is almost always shut with accidents.

I'm no fan of motorway driving at the best of times. You have to take your life in your hands and hope for the best.

You have less chance dying from COVID, I reckon.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

very localised news for me.
Managed to get Medieval Total war working on my pc.0
downloaded and installed as instructed then watched a You tube tutorial on how to swap a few files ( have the gold edition which the you tube video states wont work on ) swapped a few .dll files ?? and blow me it started.

next is if it does the campaigns which is all I really like not the battles.

For many years I was unable to play Med because a roommate left with one of the discs. Eventually it hit $4 on Steam so I just bought it again. It's a fantastic game.

Oddly enough, I don't like the other titles from the same company. You're correct, that campaign is something magical. Like AOEII.

As to news, there's actually some good news for a change. The Uber law was struck down as unconstitutional. I walked away from that election dispirited, most of the initiatives I supported failed, and the bad ones passed. That Uber law was particularly stinky.

I was also glad to see that law struck down.

I try to avoid taking Uber, because the company's business model sucks.  It exploits its workers too much for me to feel right about taking one just because it's cheaper than a regular cab.
