    I ended up having to reverse-engineer it all to work out what was going on. On the bright side, I also ended up re-implementing various bits of the game mechanics (not platform-dependent) in a tenth of the number of lines of spaghetti code they'd used for the same functionality, and sometimes even fewer

    Huge and delicious tea of roast gammon, chips, fried eggs, and beans

    Huge joint too: around 1.5kg which is A Good Size in imperial measurements, and should therefore furnish a few more meals in the future
