It was organized a little quickly, the main aim is to save myself a ton of money... with which I'll actually be able to afford to come out and play in London :-) I'm not really online at the moment yet, not sure if I will be for a while. Don't know if BT will extend their services to this neck of the literal woods, and can't build a receiver myself. Yet. Am undergoing training to do that very type of thing though :-)
A big thanks for those who have helped me get where I am. I'm going to keep in touch with as many people as possible and have reverted to writing snail mail!
