Yesterday was a bit of a wash out, literally with the weather being so crap and wet. I was going to go out and do a bit more shopping, but decided instead to waste the day watching TV and playing Dwarven Fortress.
I've lost track of how many fortresses I've started now. I keep getting bored of them, cos apart from not having any of the right ore around, I don't seem to find any of it a challenge. So my latest attempt should last a bit longer as there's an aquafier - a layer of water logged sand - between me and all the rock. Or at least not all of it - I've managed to find a small amount, so it's just a matter of starting to build a load of pumps and start up a glassworks.
