Argh, I have a case of the snuffles coming on. And this next coming week is hand-in week for about four pieces of coursework, so lots of late nights and early rises in the mornings.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Me and my rotten luck. I do have a big blog post to make sometime during next week, that'll have to wait until I've gotten my Uni work done. I'm already procrasting enough as it is. :(

Hahahahaha room inspection hahahaha

So, Claire, the person from Campbell Property who manages the properties in the Birmingham area, just took a look round our house (as they do every three months to make sure that we haven't trashed the place)...

... And my room's an absolute STY! I was banking on her showing up tomorrow (her letter said either today or tomorrow) but she pulled a late shift today and is still going. 15 houses done today, apparently.

So, I warn her in advance, "it's not dirty... Just untidy."

She takes one look with her colleague (they always go round in twos)... And goes "you've blu-tacked those posters to the wall haven't you." THAT'S ALL SHE SAID! Oh, that and, "there's obviously too much stuff just on the floor to cause any damage to the carpet," which is fine by me :D She promised she'd be back in three months, as per regs - so I'll make it tidier for then to prove that there is actually a room underneath the crap... But I laughed so much when she looked at it!

I'll take a photo in a bit to show you all what she saw... You'll like, it I'm sure =D [edit: photo below!] Cleanliness may be next to Godliness, but I like messy - my room's a reflection of my mental state, and particularly how my brain works, so it's all good. Oh, and I'm not religious either, so I don't really give a monkeys about cleanliness when it comes to my own living spaces :D

Brace yourselves...

Taken from my door (sorry about the perspective being a bit all over the place at the bottom of the photo, I don't have a wide angle lens on my camera).

So today, whilst I was in a session in one of the Labs at Uni, I wanted to check my email (in Outlook on my PC at home) using RealVNC. So, I connect to my home machine's IP address... And I get my laptop responding. Argh. I forgot that I have the VNC rule set up on the firewall for the default port range, and both VNC servers on my desktop and laptop use the same ports, because I'm lazy.

So, I ended up using VNC on the laptop to connect to VNC on my desktop... And check my email.

VNC via VNC! Check ma bad self.

Yes, I'm THAT geeky that I actually found it amusing enough to take a screengrab of... It was a boring lecture.
