On the 27th I start my journey to Univeristy. I'm studying at the University of Exeter for those who are interested.

Unfortunately, I have been told the Internet may not be connected to my room until as late as mid October :):D:( So, in the mean time I'll be relying on Internet cafes, the library and whatever other sources of free Internet I can find. Being in a city, I might actually find some free WiFi for once :)

I just thought you guys might like to know why I might suddenly disappear, or not come on as regularly as usual, while I yell at the builders and get them to fix my Internet!

What are you studying, out of interest?


rvalkass

I'm studying for a Masters degree in Physics (4 years).

Kl. I don't know why but I always thought you were only one year above me (I've just started AS). I don't really know what I want to study yet, probably Maths.

Hope you enjoy uni...

edit: Totally unrelated (well not totally) but our school's made national news :lol:

I know my room has a bed, a desk and a chair... That's about it :D I guess I will have lots of boxes scattered around for quite a while.

No idea, but I hope it does! If not, I've got to rely on the PCs in the library til they fix my Internet :D

Well, I'm off first thing tomorrow morning for the 5 hour drive across the country to my new home. I'll come back on as soon as I can to let you know I've found some working Internet :lol:

That reminds me: didn't we have a posted topic where it deals with all funiture made out of FedEx shipping boxes? It's either posted by sang (former mod) or I saw it on the YouTube...

It was ingenious how a guy even made a computer desk out of FedEx boxes and FedEx tapes lol

Finally! It's taken them ages, but they've finally connected us to the Internet! 50mbps connection too ^_^My furniture comprises of a desk and bed provided, accompanied by the box for my printer, some carrier bags and an effectively huge box (2 foot by 2 foot by 1 foot) that my USB Bluetooth adapter (about 1 inch long...) was delivered in :lol:


BuffaloHelp
