A very quick update. I've been busy on several fronts over the past week; the arrival of the laptop has proved to be, so far, a good investment on my part. Work on the Dip. has increased; I'm editing A Guide to Reading; and I'm experimenting with some other stuff too. I also downloaded OpenOffice, which I'd recommend as a replacement for Windows Office.
Booze - wise: 34 units over the course of the week.
