Journal tags: moving



My little ausflug to Basel and Freiburg went well. It was nice to be back in the land of beer (cue Homer Simpson daydream). The pictures should be worth a few K of words.

Next week, I’ll be heading off to Amsterdam. No rest for the weekend. I’ll be attending XTech 2006. There’s an Ajax developers day at the start of the conference and I’ll be talking about Hijax.

Before that though, I have some important tasks to attend to here in Brighton. Namely, getting all my worldly belongings out of my current abode and into my new flat by the end of the week.

Jessica and I have spent the last three days going back and forth with boxes and cartons of our accumulated kipple. After hauling cardboard boxes full of CDs around, I’ve really come to appreciate the power of having an iPod. Compact Discs are just physical back-ups of my music. They take up far too much space.

So far, the move has been going okay. Happily, our new place is very close to our old place so there’s been no mucking about with vans or cars. Our phone line should get switched over tomorrow. Unfortunately, our broadband will take a while longer. That was my fault. I left it a bit late to inform my ISP of the move. Luckily for me, some kind neighbour has an unprotected wireless network that I can use to get online.

Between the hauling of boxes, preparing for my trip to the Netherlands, and having no guaranteed connection to the internet, I may appear to drop off the face of the earth for a while. Please forgive any unanswered emails and general lack of communication. Once I’m settled into my new place, things should return to something approaching normality.
