Well, even more shelves have gone up. The two connected units in the back bedroom are now fully populated with paperbacks. The 50cm unit in the front room has the two PC’s and various other bits of
hardware on it. The 30cm unit in the front room has all the CD’s and some of bits of stuff on it. Another 30cm unit on the other side of the front room has all the RPG stuff on it, and all our photographs. We bought another one of the £16 boxes from B&Q and have put all our LRP kit into it (and one other we already had). Although the LRP kit is building up elsewhere!

We seem to be finally getting the rooms sorted – only 9months after moving in.


Another weekend, another geeking session. This time I spent it building a very basic news server on the linux machine. The main aim was to ensure that myself and Grete could read news regardless of
which ISP we were connected to. So, it connects news every hour from a list of ISP’s (and if we’re not online, it doesn’t do anything), and then we use it to read our news using Agent.

Seems to work ok, although I’m not sure how much disk space it’s going to need …

Used a linux product called Leafnode .. doesn’t scale but works well with a small number of users.
