Today I moved house. I’m not longer at the geek.flat. The geek.flat has disbanded, and we’ve all gone our seperate ways. This is mostly due to SmileyChris getting married, and moving in with his wife Mel (who I was going out with way back). Mufasa and Kodiak decided to move out too. I was … hesitant… but after not being able to find 3 flatmates to share the geek.flat with.
But, I discovered that CubaLAN was looking for flatties. I came, I saw, I took a room… not cheap mind you. I’m paying NZD$145 a week just for the room. It’s a huge room. I’ve got a double bed sans matress and a single bed in here right now, with room to spare. And I’m just 30 seconds walk away from Manners Mall, which is an awesome location — smack bang in the middle of Wellington City — you can’t get much better than this 🙂
Not only is it an excellent location in meatspace, but it’s also an excellent location in cyberspace: CubaLAN has a 10Mbit Citylink connection… De-cent! It costs me NZD$30/month for to share in the fibre-optic love, but I love it already 🙂
Tonight I helped one of my fellow flatties with the MAME Cabinet in the lounge — we got screenshots appearing on the game menu 🙂 OK, maybe I didn’t help that much, but I did suggest the idea and supply the already-downloaded screen snaps.
I’m probably gonna have to set up the webcam back at the flat. Unfortunately, I don’t have a street-facing window, but I’ll sort something out.
