So it was suddenly free again.
Just got home from a draining weekend, got an evil cold/flu - bright yellow snot, slight fever, aches...
Bunged it on with a cup of chamomile and some codeine and despite nearly zonking out a couple of times I thoroughly enjoyed that. Lots to think about, with plenty of time to think about it. The 'hyperspace' section put me in mind of the Acid Accident Incident - that's more or less where I was for a few hours.
The monkey-men were a bit silly, but once I'd got over that it was a smooth ride into infinity.
