[Saturday 18th February]
After a long wait (we had ordered it a month ago) today we finally got our phone line and internet connection setup. The engineers were here for a suspiciously short amount of time, which really made me wonder what the reason was behind the long waiting time. Still, we've got it now, and all is well with the world.

We also ordered a sofa today - so that is basically the last two items on the "to do" list checked off for the apartment, with the possible exception of some kind of spare sleeping arrangements for guests.

For me though of course, the significance of the furniture somewhat pales in comparison with the superb feeling of finally having a decent internet connection. Unfortunately there was just one weekend to make use of it though, before being whisked off to America for a two week business trip. However, on my return I have grand plans for some kind of always on server, and a new era of half baked ideas for gimmicky web apps.

WHEN I will have my ADSL set up, I most certainly re-wire the whole house and will have 4 (yes four) computer on the intranet PLUS a webserver/gateway/mail server to link them all. It's something that I really want to do, but so far the problem has been the Adsl... :(
