ok... i havent posted for a while and i'm feeling a little depressed, so this will inevitably be a long ramble of nothingness...... plus i was supposed to be working this week, but some other person stole my job - so i have no money this week :-(

house stuff.... my builder who was supposed to be knocking my chimney down to make my living room bigger has disappeared of the face of the earth - so no luck getting that done, which has pissed me off.... plus I've had to pull out of buying the flat in london, since the agent messed up and told me the house was privately owned, but turns out it is ex-local authority and was going to cost more than i wnated to pay for ex-local.... so thats all shit.

holiday..... i really need to get away now.... i've had enough! only two weeks to go, but feels likel a lifetime.


ok.... i'm going to finish this post later

Today has been another long day. I hate FOXTONS. I've been looking for a flat in London for a good few months now, and have seen a fiar few flats, none of which were perfect but there were one or two that would have been fine for now. I've made 3 offers, all of which have be turned down, and whenver I try to look for new places to view, the flat on the web are already under offer or sold. Foxtons really are the agent you love to hate, they dominate the london property market - so you can't buy without them, yet they are useless!!

This was all made worse by the fact my grandma (82) who has to move house since she lives with my dad who is selling the family home soon, made an offer on a flat after one day of viewings which was accepted today. So she has managed to get a 2 bed flat for £100k in the most central location (all-be-it in the south west, not south east) and in massively quick time! Depsite being please for her it just makes me more cross!

Oh well.... back to looking

I got my Practice of Politics potfolio result back today, managed to get a 68, which should make my avergae a very annoying 69. But thankfully, someone obviosuly likes me, and on second marking of my essay (the other part) I got 72, which gives me the oh so nice 70 average. YAY!!!!! I finally have a whole module that is a first! beofre now I had only got a part first, and then alwats averaged to a 2:1 (oh except for entreprenuership in first year - which so so piss easy i got 89, but i dont think I should count that).

In other news.... degree results are out today - so good luck to all those finalists!!!

In my total solitude here in Keele I've found myself exploring a much wider variety of the internet than normal.... so here is todays waste of time a website called weblo that I still don't really understand exactly what the point of it is or how it works but it has helped pass the time of day



In other good news... I managed to land myself a nice new job today - and it even appears to be a management role, some nutcase decided it would be a good idea to leave me in charge of a few staff and a few grand of takings - in birmingham!! And whats more they are going to pay me to drive there, pay me to eat and pay for a bed for me each night - yay!!

OMG!!

Today started so well... good plans to get some ides down on paer for my dissertation and gets some books out the library to start some reading and then... SHOCK HORROR... I find out Tom Lundberg is leaving Keele!!! Got offered some fancy new job in Glasgow and has jumped ship from the sinking SPIRE department in Keele. Keele's loss is Glasgows gain, but my fears are the department will continue to slip down the slippery slope to disrepair.

so the search goes on for a new dissertation supervisor and more stuff to read... oh the fun!

I'm one of those people who knows that the good and proper thing to do in life is back-up your computer files on a regular basis - but sadly like most I never get round to doing it - plus the hassle of ZIP drives or buring a backup DVD every week never enthsed me. A couple of times tho I have fallen foul of this and lost a lot of stuff, or had to pay hundreds of ppunds to 'IT experts' to recover my hard drive. But today, I have found the most impressive solution - Mozy (http://www.tkqlhce.com/g3103dlurlt8BDFEIDF8A9DDA9EC) It gives you 2GB of free memory to back up too - which is fine for the average person without masses of media files - or for less than £25 a year you can store unlimited data (encrypted for security) on thier central computer thingy.

Best of all it backs-up automatically every week whilst you are online anyway - so you never forget!! How great is that??!?!?

Anyway, I thought this was a greay idea - try it for yourself and get 2GB free (great even if you only use it as extra space for music files!!!

All this has made me very happy (and I don't care if that makes me sound like a geek!) 

Think of it as an insurance policy for your hard d
