lots of new info for you guys (ok, so this may make me look ignorant, but that's life!)
I really wouldn't worry about accomodation. Weir and Derwent all have network connections AND (this is the good bit) middleton is being refurbished over the summer (atleast, I was told by a reliable source that it was). So, assuming that is right, by the time you get here everyone will have a network connection and there will be no really awfull rooms.
And as for the open day program 'ken...ken', I wouldn't have a clue, but I'm sure it will be easy to find out.
I'll get back to you (providing I remember ofcourse!)
