One of the fun things you get to do every so often when you work in a library is to “weed” the collection – get rid of books that aren’t really pulling their weight any more. Which is fine, but never really having studied the subject matter of the section I’m weeding occasionally I’ll pick a book to go and wonder if I’m throwing out some long lauded classic of the field.
Today I went to play the new release of No Man’s Sky, after not having really got into it the first time around, only to discover that my PS4 has been powered off due to an brief blackout so it had 9gb of updates to download. So I started a new game of Fallout 4 instead because it’s never a bad time to play Fallout 4.

From what I can glean from the birdsite it looks like nothing will happen tonight. It’s hard to tell whether camp Dutton has the numbers of just wants people to think that they do. If there is another party room meeting tomorrow it’ll likely happen earlier in the day rather than later as tomorrow is the last sitting day of the week so parliamentarians will be planning on flying out of Canberra at the end of the day.
