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. :)

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...

Graduation Ceremony

After having to wake up at 6:30am(!) to get to the morning graduation ceremony at the Festival Theatre, I'm now back home.

The waiting for the results is finally over... I'll graduate with a First-Class Honours degree in Computer Science :)
