I'm taking advice from figments of my own imagination.

What's happened since the arse end of November?

Ok, first of all the name of the page has changed, to Mostly Fictional. I now own and and if you click on those, you'll see they point here. That's so shocking I nearly fell off my chair.

Mostly Fictional may or may not be a name I use permanently, but at the time it seemed good. I'm much too lazy now to spell out why so you'll have to take my word for it.

Other things that have been done... well, I've been creating a competition editor because doing it through the editor I coded earlier is a fucking nightmare, thanks to BlitzMax's inability to use multiple columns in its lists. Plus, I'd rather have a half decent graphical representation to guide me through the process instead of just keying in numbers.

Lastly, there's that thing which passes for some sort of evidence that I've been working on things. Granted, I've only got three federations in the game so far, but they're easy to put in. The NF-Board held their first proper tournament last month, the VIVA World Cup, though the name's a bit of a misnomer as it had only four teams, and only one of which came from outside Europe, the Southern Cameroons, a side I question the validity of in my ignorance. Oh, and they never showed up either, leaving the Sámi people (or Laplanders, if you prefer and they do not) to walk the tournament with a 7-0 win over Occitania, 14-0 against Monaco (the principality, not the Ligue 1 side) and, er, 21-1 over Monaco again in the final.

Rather impressive, but then Sápmi is a huge area and the players involved were drawn from the Norwegian, Swedish and Finnish leagues, some in the top flight. By comparison, Monaco's players are all pretty much restricted to Monaco itself.

Still, go Sápmi!
Better than fucking Ireland, anyway.
