A couple of big things to mention:
- My job is going very well. I finished the three weeks of training and have been taking calls for a week and a half now. If you can’t remember, it’s working as a technical support agent for BT Business Broadband (situated in Dundee’s 80s futurist themed Technology Park).
works in the building right next to mine (Visual Sciences) and sometimes gets on the same bus. Taking calls seems to be getting easier by the day as we take in all the possible solutions for the problems that come up and as we learn our way around all the different systems we use. The best part of the job is some of the weird calls you get, but I’ll save those for a later post.
- I’ve moved into a flat of my own. It’s a fair sized room with quite a high ceiling in a bed-sit, which has two other guys in it already. It’s £150 a month which is pretty cool, and my parents were kind enough to help me by painting it pure white so it’s got a nice clean feel to it now. I’m planning to have a small flat warming do next Saturday evening, but as I’ve never thrown any kind of gathering before, I’m not entirely sure how I to organise it, especially as there isn’t really anywhere else people can go in the flat other than the room. Ah well.
A couple of smaller things to mention
- If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve set-up a Movable Type blog (here). It utilizes a plug-in to crosspost all the entries I make there to my LiveJournal account. Benefits are that I now have full entry RSS 1, RSS 2 and Atom post syndication (not available to free users on LiveJournal), access to site stats and referrers, and total control over the blog layout (sod LiveJournal’s overly complex S2 theme system).
