About half of the office is out today. Some are off at Who Do You Think You Are Live, others are in the United States for the BIG meeting.

By a strange co-incidence, everyone in the chain of command that I call \'boss\' is among the absent.

So what does this mean for me? A day of \'research\' on The Miniatures Page, Strike Hold, Warlord Games, Ambush Alley, and a number of my other favourite websites, mixed with plenty of relaxing work breaks, reading the soon to be released RAID 8 The Cockleshell Raid: Bordeaux 1942.

So what does this mean for you, dear reader? Well, drop me a note at [email protected] and tell me what you are doing at work today. I\'m going to be selecting a few winners throughout the day and giving away free Osprey books! Don\'t wait around long though - with my two-hour lunch and knocking off an hour early, I won\'t be here long.

P.S. if any of my bosses are reading this, I\'m actually putting the finishing touches on the new UK catalogue and sorting out some bookdata issues.
