Another train, another planet

without comments

I am on a train again- this time heading back to London. Just finished my meetings in Cardiff. Cardiff was a curious place. I would like to get back and check it out a bit more.

I am looking out my window now at a massive sprawling housing estate. The suburbs always upset me for some reason. I don’t know it is about them, but they just seem so oppressive. Actually, they are oppressive. I guess I don’t like being oppressed.

My new phone is going well. I bought a Sony Ericsson T68i a couple of months ago (through eBay) expressly for the purpose of this trip (and all subsequent trips). The main reason I chose it was the design and the Bluetooth support (it was a vanguard phone when it was released a couple of years ago) and so far it has been great. Syncing it with my Mac- and getting all my contacts onto it- was a cinch. And the great thing is that when I go to Thailand, or when I go to Australia, I will be able to use it there too. I haven’t had a chance to test out the GPRS, and to be honest I don’t even know if O2 offers GPRS or not, but it’s nice to know that I can dial up to the net using this phone as a Bluetooth modem on either GSM or GPRS. At the moment that isn’t necessary as some fool called Dan has set up an open wireless network near my office- so I use that to connect to the net. I sort of feel sorry for him- he is running all the Windows services like file and printer sharing. If I were malevolent (or perhaps just if I had more time) I could really have fun there.
