Tuesday, 23 November 2004


Well, that's another Tuesday, packed to the gunnels with things dealt with... I can't say I finished everything that I'd intended to do, but I made it to the end with nerves still (just about) intact. I've yet to write up some meeting minutes, although they can wait.

I daresay everybody's aware of my penchant for free stuff. It would appear, though, that one of my favourite freebies is about to come to an end; for a long while, I was fortunate enough to take up an offer from Orange called "Out Here" where, for a flat fee of £20, I receive five free texts for life. Beth told me of an internet contact who was charged after their third message a couple of days ago; I only received one this evening.

My intention, as one might imagine, is to lay my evening at the mercy of some homogenous call centre in order to receive a substandard explanation for their actions. Actually, after being charged 25p for a call, I received a little encouragement by the man at the other end of the phone, who claimed there were 'network problems' and that there was nothing they could do now. Apparently, if I wait for four days and call them back, they'll refund the calls and the text costs that will have been displayed on the screen by then. Something to look forward to.

I'm off to SBES tomorrow, and looking forward to meeting up with my mate Ed, broadening my horizons through immersion in the newest technology and trying to snaffle free stuff.

I popped up to third floor of BH for a half-hour break earlier to take a look around the BBC Radio and Music festival - a celebration of everything BBC Radio. It was most enjoyable, although I'd intended to attend a seminar on digital music as well, which I missed because of meetings this afternoon. On the up side, though, I was rather inspired by a very listenable-to band called stoneylacuna, who played an acoustic set for 6music.

They also, rather amusingly, featured the world's smallest nightclub - the Miniscule Of Sound. It was closed, unfortunately, but it truly was rather small, from what I could see of it (2m x 1m).
