I have just returned from The Independent Regional Sudoku Tournament held in a hotel on the seafront of Brighton. Unfortunately, I only managed to complete the first two puzzles in the 45 minutes given. The third puzzle had an annoying error somewhere and the fourth puzzle (probably the hardest) was only half complete when time was called.
Yesterday, Leah told me more about her day out (literally) at IKEA. At the checkout, she had a problem with the price of the dog basket and caused a huge queue in one of the three tills open that day. She let a couple people with only a few items ahead of her, but this made things worse as one spent 15 minutes getting all of their cards declined one after the other.
Leah called up today to say she was coming down to Brighton with Will. She mentioned that they were going to do a little shopping at IKEA on the way down.
Another day attempting to contact Bulldog support over the phone. The new 8Mbit broadband gave out before its first day!
As I cook some spaghetti, it may be a good time to update a blog that hasn’t seen much action recently. Those heady days of daily updates… ahh well, never mind.
Over the past few days I have transferred my broadband from NTL to, the four times faster, Bulldog. It hasn’t been a walk in the park.
I have just finished a new design for my blog. I based it on the "blackboard" CSS, adding quite a few new border and colour styles and my own banner design with some small photos.
I am trying to improve my badminton skills so that I can pinpoint the far corners. I think I played better last week when I did manage to get the shuttle cock in the target area for most of my match against Lydia.
I am continually receiving authorizations on my ICQ from two different users with a URL as their alias. I could ignore the user from the authorization window, but that would make no difference as there is a new ICQ number each time.
