Spent all Saturday recovering from Friday, when we celebrated Daniel, Karl and some others finishing exams. I'm done Wednesday. I played "Civilization", the Avalon Hill boardgame, today with some friends. We got about halfway through before the place we were at closed (it's an 8 hour game, I'm told), but it was a ton of fun. Anybody I know played it before? selenite? Must find a copy, when I have money.

Last night, I read two and a half Alexander Kent books, "Enemy in Sight" and "Form Line of Battle". I'll finish "The Flag Captain" tonight. Which raises a question: I've heard this both ways: The Flag Captain was a post of honor, given to a senior captain likely to soon make admiral, and that Flag Captain was one of the most junior with the squadron, so the Admiral placed his flag where he could keep an eye on the inexperienced officer.
