If that 16-year old owner of secondweb is so rich, surely he could afford to hire a better web designer. I spotted capitalised tags and improper use of tables all throughout the site.

Anyone not watching Gone In 60 Seconds on ITV2+1, I suggest you do. It's a grand film.

Yeah lighting.

Thing is if I take it work will be frequent (ie everyday) but I'll get paid less than I do freelancing. But, it'll be good experience and get my foot in the door, plus I'll get to know everyone at the company and so in a years time when my contract ends if I wanted to go into freelance I'd still get work off them etc. I'm most likely going to take it.

You have to buy a digital receiver as well though like Freeview or whatever don't you though?

Yeah, I do. Some people get vouchers for free converters if they bought a non-digital TV within the last year. My TV's over 10 years old... but I really don't care about the whole digital thing as I never watch TV.

To quote someone else here, Total fucking update (many congratulations, btw!).

This past week I've moved into my student accomodation. It's really sweet; huge room all to myself with a double bed. Most of the people are ace, I'm getting freelance work like no tomorrow and I finally made good on my threat to start learning Python.

So far: I've had an old folk-music type teach a ton of guitar stuff, I've had to split up an old scottish lady from smashing someone's face in (she deserved it mind), I've had a guy say he used to work as a hitman for the russian mafia and that he's going to stab me if I tell anyone (Hi Ben!) and I've drank more alcohol than Danny probably gets through in a month.

So yeah, ace room, interesting people (in all possible meanings of the phrase), plenty of good laughs. Life rules.

Downside though is that newgrounds is blocked on my internet connection at college. So I am going to be pretty damn scarce over the next year.

I'll still try and be on in the chatroom as much as possible though, but that isn't really that much at the moment. Once everything gets settled down and I don't keep getting dragged to various pubs and parties every night I'll probably be on more.

So to summarise "so long and thanks for all the fish!"


Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

Also can't you use Tor to browse Newgrounds (and other blocked places)?
Sure it is really slow and you need to make sure that your password is something completely different from your other passwords since NG doesn't use SSL for it's authentication, so anyone could listen to the connection and see your user/pass... but you can browse NG again :D

I could proxy round it but it pretty much says in the student guidelines etc. that if I do, I'll get shot with shit. Pretty sure they check your history as well.

Given how good everything is going, I'd rather not risk the wrath of the local BOFH.

Aye but here's the thing, apart from having to pay for something. I get a shitty reception where I live. I can watch the telly if it's a little fuzzy. But if I go with one of those digital boxes (I actually had one until it got borrowed) my reception is not good enough for digital. So instead of a little interference / crap signal. It either doesn't show the channel or it starts missing squares on the screen when something moves.

Part of me thinks this was done to make money, even though I know their are benefits to digital, like all the extra channels etc. But still. This is just like when they changed satellite from analog to digital. People I knew in Canada invested in a big dish for watching football games over their. But then Setanta changed and they were buggered.

Heres what out switchover things looked like, meybe they should have done switchover camps :p

I think it's funny that they block NG for internet connections going to a room where the person will have their OWN computer. I could see if it was the lab's & library's computers but to your own room, that sucks! We did all kinds of shit with our connections :x

I just dont get the layout of that site. Its no the most obvious to follow and use. Quite annoying if you ask me. I had one look at it then dismissed it. Just seems to be random with no point. Unless that is the point, and in that case a dont like stuff like that.
