Ever get one of those weekends where you get the nagging sensation you've forgotten something crucial, something you were supposed to do, but you can't for the life of you put your finger on it?
Well, amid all the flurry over Millsy's old trouble coming back (Bubonic Plague does take a while to shake off, but his consumption seems to be under control... though if he starts writing piano nocturnes, it's straight off to the emergency ward), and an intervention being planned by concerned friends over my slightly unhinged enthusiasm for a new skirmish game, it turns out that the old firm of C&G has completely forgotten that last Friday was the 7th Anniversary of our illustrious blog!
Amnesia is a terrible disease, so to increase awareness of this debilitating condition, we are declaring a week of celebration; Happy 7th Amnesiaversary!
And to think that that this juggernaut of the blogosphere began in a humble workshop nestled in the alpine forests of Australia's Blue Mountains...

Marvel at the detail! And just look at that patina...!
We've notched up over 200,000 page views, helped start an e-zine, and accumulated 243 faithful followers, so we thank you, our constant readers, for giving so generously of your time and attention. None of this would have been possible without you. For what is a blog without followers? It's a scrapbook in the bottom drawer of a forgotten filing cabinet. A rusty filing cabinet with no key, on its way to the tip.
"Yeah, right," I hear you say, "so what's the big deal?"
The deal, Dear Readers, is this; in recognition of this milestone, we'll be making up for lost time and hurriedly assembling
