    You have to make an appointment. I didn't, so they scowled at me, but they still sent a friendly Indian gentleman who was on his lunchbreak to show me my room and the conveniences.

    Photos in roughy 10 minutes. I have photos of the exterior, the entrance, the inner courtyard, the corridors, the stairwells, showers, toilets, pantries and a room (my room).

    Setting up a lan would be quite a lot of hassle to whoever did it, as although setting up the actual wireless network would probably be quite easy, it's probably quite stressfull trying to arrange BT to install the phoneline into the room (How would they get the phoneline to the halls and then to a room?). There seems to be a £75 installation fee for the phone line, followed by £10.50 line rental a month (for a minimum 12 months). Then ontop of that (although this bit would be rather easily setup) you need to pay your ISP the ~£30 a month for an unmetered bandwidth 2mb service (or a cheaper slower version, but with a lot of people sharing it would get rather slow), and then £50+ for a wireless router powerful enough to allow people to receive the signal (I don't know how thick the walls are in Williamson).

    I have no idea what setting up a phoneline involves, but i doubt the uni would be very cooperative. It must sound like i'm putting down the idea a lot but I thought i'd mention what would need to be done (as far as i know anyway, there may be cheaper options like cable or something, but other than that most options require a phoneline of somesort).

    I'm hoping that, as a previous year of Williamsonians set up a LAN there, there may still be remnants of the phone line. As for the costs, we'd divide them between all those who want the service, which should mean that we'd have to pay considerabley less than the frankly scary total cost. I am worried by the walls, though, as they seem quite thick and made of large bricks (look at the photos I took of the room and corridors), however setting up a LAN based around the inner courtyard may work.

    I really hope this works.

    Wow guys, we need to jazz things up in here a little! I can feel the dust settling on my computer screen. So, how is the preparation going for everyone? Are you getting increasingly excited, or just bored of waiting and want to hurry up and go already?

    I still haven't bought anything for the start of uni. Nor have I adjusted to an sleeping, eating and crapping routine. I CRAVE ROUTINE.

    My doctor cancelled my jabs today, as she had run out of MMR vaccine. So I've got to go there tomorrow - knowing the local surgery and its buggered waiting room, I'm going to make a day of it (not by choice of course) and bring a hamper with me with jam sandwiches. Woop.

    I've been having dreams about RHUL aswell. I dreamt I was saying 'yes' to everything that I had no more time for work. Hah.

    Oooh I am getting my jabs on Monday and very much not looking forward to it; I find them worse than piercings and even tattoos, possibly for some weird psychological reason like you don't get any material gain out of them, or any satisfaction at being able to show it off afterwards ('hey look, do you like my puss-weeping jab spot?'). Hmmm... not very endearing... sorry if you were eating then guys.

    Just keep your arm relaxed! I had my MMR in my right arm and Diptheria, Tetanus and Polio in the other. If your arm is relaxed it won't hurt as much. Good Luck!

    Well all I can explain it as is a 'thingy', not quite tribal, because its thicker. It's at the base of my spine, I like it there because I forget about it and don't get bored of it! Only got the one though, but I am thinking of extending it upwards... Got an arty friend working on that (everything I draw looks like a christmas tree).

    Wow that was a lot of jabs all in one go Hayley Kim :eek: ! Ok, I will be calm :cool: , thanks for the advice.
