FreeNetName's web servers are being infuriating at the moment. When I first go to a page on my website I get a 404, but when I hit F5 up the page pops. I do intend to get better hosting at some point, but I just haven't got the time to organize it. I'd quite like hosting with PHP and MySQL but I doubt that's going to happen any time soon... too expensive. Rebecca has persuaded me to become a member of the Royal Institution - now that I have Monday and Thursday afternoons free hopefully I'll be able to go along to some lectures. There's a very interesting one on the 24th October about the development of flight over the last hundred years, and I'm going to try and get to that. I've decided to apply for the IEE Faraday Scholarship, but I think I'll be lucky to get it. There's only 12 available... but it would be cool if I could, because it would really help to subsidise the meagre student loan I'm likely to get.
