Weekly Journal June 6-12 2011

This week is best described as hot. Unfortunately the air-condition at work leaves a lot to be wished for. Programming is better done cold, not in 28-29 °C.

I enjoyed the cold of space instead reading this weeks highlight Dreadnaught by Jack Campbell. He continues the story of Black Jack Geary now on a mission beyond the borders into the heartland of the secretive aliens behind the war he won in the previous six books. It was a good read but is mostly more of the same.

That was all for this week, keep making suggestions for books to read or things to write about. /Ove
