The Royal Bank Street Party

Was cancelled...

One week later...

[Full recycling boxes]

I didn't expect them to fill up so fast.

[Recycling boxes]

The left one is for my blue bin, the right one is for the local recycling centre. At some time in the next decade I might have recycled enough to offset the amount of sellotape used to make the boxes...

Runaway bin

Now my bin is trying to run away - perhaps I've not been feeding it enough?

Broken fence

The wind has knocked part of my fence over :(

Internet connection

Since wednesday (the 22nd) I've been able to use my ADSL connection, so I now have IPv4, (native) IPv6 and multicast IPv4 at the fastest possible speeds. :)

ADSL active!

My ticket has arrived :)

Dalgety Bay

After moving into a flat in Dalgety Bay on Saturday, I'm now waiting for a proper internet connection. The speed of dialup is really annoying me. It takes BT 14 hours to reconnect a phone line but 3 days to notice it exists and a further 7 days to activate ADSL on it...

New mouse


For a long time my old mouse has been registering two left clicks if pressed a certain way - which is really annoying. I've finally got around to replacing it with a Logitech LX3.
