Looks like I'll be phasing out my Hotmail account. GMail seems to have some pretty cool features. 1GB of storage for a start! Then the way messages are stored and organised so that emails are more like an instant message conversation, backed up by Google's powerful search facilities. Shame I'm not getting any mail there yet, since I've scored myself a great address while its still so new, (I don't want to post it so that I can defend myself from Spam for at least a few weeks.)
I just remembered something that happened to me on the Tube while coming back to Plymouth. I was wearing a t-shirt from around the World Cup 2002 in Japan that had England written across the chest with some Japanese characters beneath it. I had no idea what they said, but I liked it anyway. So I'm standing on the platform and this stereotypical Japanese kid gets off, GBA in hand, stands right infront of me, stares at my shirt and starts saying "Ing... Eng... Enger..." before his mum carted him off. So, at least I know that I wasn't walking around with dickhead written across my shirt!

Just got back to Plymouth this evening. Had a good time in Nottingham belatedly celebrating Nick's 21st birthday with the boys, even if I only got 2 hours sleep, (but hey, the kebab and casino were worth it.)
I've got a lot to be getting on with now for my project, as well as sorting stuff out like how I'm gonna move out in 3 weeks and getting some food into the house in the meantime ;o)
Google are beta testing a new email service, called Gmail. I'm signing up and will let you know how it goes.

Got my C++ coding done before I went to Portugal for an Easter break. Had a good time in the sun. Got back and started to do the paper based work only to worry that I haven't done the coding the way they want it done, potentially wasting a week and a half. I've emailed the tutor to see if it is ok, but no responce as yet. In the meantime I've been getting on with my final project. Got a bit done. Tidied up some graphics, added a new paper, got a new ROM done (but not uploaded that yet.) Also looking for some more opinions, so posted this in a forum: Rllmuk Development Forum (the new and unofficial Edge magazine forum.)
