Hai, we has SQL

Yes, this blog has been a bit neglected of late (more on that later). That also means that it accumulated _a lot_ of junk comments (8477 or so) which would have meant a lot of point and clicking to remove it.

Luckily, [Dreamhost]( gives one command line access to everything, including the mysql database behind TTM, so I went in and took out all of the comments after the latest legit one in one fell swoop. A few seconds work instead of a few days. Sometimes, being a bit of a geek is fun.

As to the reason there's not much happening around here (apart from Phil, thank god for that) is that I've been in a bit of a wargaming funk since Easter or so. I haven't painted or done anything wargame related, except play a few games. It's one of those phases. Trust me, it will pick up again.

Miniature Wargaming Podcast

Recently, I have been looking for a podcast related to miniature wargaming. The advantage is that one can listen to wargaming-related news and stories while driving the car, or even when painting.

After some search, I found the following, which I think is very good. The hosts have a pleasant style of presenting, and the topics are varied and well-researched. Their sense of humour is also to my liking, so that's a bonus!

Wargaming in style

Below is a clip from a British tv-series from the early 70s (I assume), "Callan". Watch the whole sequence: 2 gentlemen playing a wargame in a spacious wargaming room.
