    why not send some stuff a couple of weeks before u go and then it should arrive when u do.
    Yeh that's actually a good idea
    But I won't do that now, especially since I don't know how long stuff takes to arrive an I don't trust the postal service here. Will do so when I actually get used to it.

    the postal service in england? it's fine. when i was travelling i posted stuff home from places like morrocco and turkey and the parcels tended to take about a fortnight but it would have been longer if i'd sent them by ship. u should really look into it now as there are only about five weeks til term starts and less for u as u will be coming early for the international fresher things

    Oh nono.. England is fine!

    It's Brunei I'm worried about. When people send stuff like birthday cards, they open them up to see if there is any money inside. And if anything says "Do not bend", the purposely crease it.

    the thing i was worried about is that suitcases are dificult to store due to their bulky nature so i might bring it all in cardboard boxes/bags which can be more easily stored or thrown away. at the end of term i can easily accumulate some more cardboard bowex from the supermarket or some plastic bags or something

    I've got an old trunk. It works well to hold all my stuff, and can then go back in the store room during term-time. My suitcase for clothes, fits under the bed.

    My roommate in the first year brought a trunk... imagine her delight when she discovered we were living on the top floor of the keep (120-odd stairs). I seem to remember she cajoled some helpful lads into carrying it...

    Yeh that's true. I'll probably bring one box, just for shoes etc. Being in a cold country is so troublesome

    But since I'm going back in December, I should remember to pack just enough for one term.

    I could only think of 16 things, and that is really pushing it. Not many students have mixing desks for their HiFi systems (although its not unheard of)
    That is what i have hooked up to the power supply in my room... no wonder the electricity bill is huge! :rolleyes:

    I've now bought a WinTV USB thingy-me-jig, which will save me space. It's not perfect, but it suits my needs. I'm gonna leave my TV at home for my first year to save some space up in Durham. Didn't bother with the FM radio add on, as I want to take my Hi-Fi up anyway for better sound whilst watching DVDs off my laptop.
