Early In The Morning

It’s coming up to 5am.

I’m still awake. As in I haven’t been to bed. As in I’ve now been up for 24 hours – this means that from here on out the blogs could get a lot less coherent… but here goes.

Obviously, as we expected, the wee small hours have been quiet on the online front. As I type this blog the team are burning with Darach – I’m wondering if he’s planning on staying online until 7:55, as these numbers seem to have some sort of significance, but we’ll have to wait and see.

As it’s been a quieter period in terms of gamer traffic and invites to games the team has really taken the opportunity to make the most of their break time. Everyone is taking more regular breaks now, as the challenge enters the final stages, having amassed some serious free minutes during the early stages of the event.

So there are five hours till the end, but will the concentration hold out until then? Dan’s admitted that he’s finding it harder to concentrate on the game now and there’s definate a hell of a lot more crashing going on than we saw earlier in the day but the spirits among the team seem high. Some team members (I’m looking at you, Martin) seem completely unaffected by the length of the gaming sessions. While everyone else is growing stiffer, or slouching further into their beanbags, Martin seems to be as full of beans now as he was at the beginning of the whole thing – possibly more so due to the strength of the coffee we can get here!

And as for Fran, she has moved once or twice and taken a break or two… but, if it wasn’t for the fact that I can see her thumbs moving from here, I would have to poke her with a stick to make sure she was still alive!

    I wouldn’t put it past him to stay up until 7:55. If he does, it may be prudent to spray the team with holy water.


    You have been warned.

    I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist a 7:55 if I put one in somewhere. Seriously, I could build a trap and catch you using numbers as bait. Like Mouse Trap but, you know, without the mice. Vice Trap I’d call it. Altho that may be something else entirely…

    Those numbers create a physical reaction in me. Since you posted that, bizarrely, my nose has been blocked and my eyes have been streaming. Popular opinion seems to suggest hay-fever. But I know better.

    Heed my warnings.

    I seem to be experiencing some sort of sympathy insomnia and cannot sleep. I’m with you guys in spirit! 😉
