I'm typing this in the Upper Class lounge that Virgin borrow from Delta, (pretty swish huh?)
In the past few days my Dad and I have managed to find out about buying a car, drivers licenses, insurance, where to get furniture, actually rented a flat and all sorts of other bits in preparation for my move in September to Full Sail. Got a nice flat in Whisper Lakes which is within walking distance of the Uni which is handy, and will probably get a Ford Focus as our car. Oh, and if you weren't jealous enough ;o) DAMN it was hot!

So thats it! My degree is over! All hail Ashley Bennett BSc (Hons) :o)
In other related news, I move out of Plymouth tomorrow, I'm off to Florida on Friday to find somewhere to live and I may be attending, (and indeed presenting at,) Submerge in Bristol this year (1st and 2nd July.) More on that as it comes.

My project presentation went pretty terribly. So, guess I can hope for a 2:1 then. ¦o(

Bit the bullet today and bought myself a new host and a new URL. Say hello to!
The question now is whether to keep this blog going, or write a new one without Blogger, which has just had a tasty redesign, (even if I think it has been made more difficult to update due to more clicks being involved.) We'll have to see as I've only just started making the design for the new site, but couldn't wait to reserve my domain name (and save myself wasting more time looking at hosting options!) So, changes are coming. Stay tuned good people!

I've been looking at sorting myself out with a new website. And I mean the whole shebang; URL, host, technology, design and content. I think I've found all of those, (obviously the content needs work) and hope to work on it after I get back from Florida at the end of the month. Its got a long way to go, but I'll post when I have something I want to show.
I handed in my final project on Friday. I think it turned out ok, so now its down to the presentation, which has been pushed back to Thursday. Hosting the project website on CreateUK has filled up my server space, so the other examples of my work have had to be removed temporarily, just one of the reasons prompting me to move on to a new server. My work is still being hosted on my Blueyonder mirror at but that will be going soon too, since I'll be disconnecting from Telewest when I move out of Plymouth.
Last night I went to Destiny nightclub for the first time. Not a bad place I have to say, but bloody hot! What was weird though was looking in a mirror and seeing no reflection of myself :o) We went to Heroes for a drink first and the toilet cubicles there have one way glass in the doors facing the wash basin mirror, so I couldn't see my own refection. A crappy story, but weird when you've been drinking since 12!

I just switched the news on and it was talking about the postal service and how its pretty crap. Right at the end it says its not all their fault when they get letters addressed to "House with 2 boys and lots of pets" or "House with the blue car" with maybe a few details like a street and a town on there too. The world is full of f'ing morons. *sigh* (goes back to typing project report.)

More ROMs and things on the GBA Project page, which has to be handed in this Friday. But in doing so, I've maxed out my webspace. Well, I was looking at remaking the site anyway (but I think that Radioactive style will just stay as a demo.) Things need a bit of trimming down and updating anyway, so a new style with an easier way of updating would be good. I've been inspired by Chris O'Shea's site which uses PHP, mySQL and a load of CSS. But if I were going to use that, I might have to *gasp/shock* PAY for a new webhost.
