Back in October 2007, I mentioned that a new Star Wars MMORPG was in the works.
This is what many Star Wars Galaxies fans (past and present) have been waiting for. Finally, the Star Wars universe will be conveyed in a decent MMORPG experience. Roll on beta/release...
If you've not already heard the news, then my apologies - Lily Elizabeth was born 02:32 on the 07/07/08.
I've now been a father for a week and I can safely say it's great! Physically I'm the same (albeit tired), mentally I've gone through a lot to get where I am now. I thought I was prepared for the big day, after reading books and internet articles on the subject; shopping for essentials many times - but it's a pleasant surprise once it all falls into place.
For those of you looking to become a father, I'll let you know that the first few nights will be sleepless, or heavily reduced in terms of shut eye. But once Baby has settled into a routine you begin to claw back some of those precious hours. We're getting about 6 hours of interrupted sleep, whereas I previously enjoyed a full 8 or 9 hours.
I'm now into my second week of paternity leave and the three of us have had plenty of time together, to enjoy being a proper family. I've got nappy changing down to a T, with it often taking less than a minute. However, I've had plenty of practice, with Lily getting through lots of nappies, on one occassion requiring 4 changes within the hour!
I'll be writing more articles soon, as I've been experimenting with WSUS, backup configurations, FreeNAS and other geeky things during the past few weeks.
I knew it was coming, but didn't know exactly when...
Virgin Media are in the process of transferring the account to myself, part of which involves temporarily switching off the broadband connection, whilst they then setup a new connection in the new account holder's name.
Fortunately their Customer Services are very helpful and knowledgeable - who during the first call confirmed that the broadband had been disconnected. The second call involved them updating the information for the cable modem, which required the MAC address.
So, everything is up and running again and the back-log of my emails are slowly creeping in. We're going to upgrade the account soon to the triple XL, which includes 20MB broadband amongst others. I'll let you know if doubling the speed makes any noticable difference.
