Hardware and stuff
Well, took my PC apart again. Removed the modem (hey, anybody want it? :o), and installed the TV card. As with everything else so far, it worked fine. Also installed my new USB modem - also works fine, and has handy indicator lights on the top to display its status. Yay. So anyhow, I can now go online, browse my network, and just hit a button on my remote control to bring up the TV or FM radio. Sadly, I can't quite get my antenna working - it's only a tiny thing, so I only get BBC2 and C4. However, hopefully when I get there I'll have a nice socket on the wall for it, or I can buy myself one, or something. Anyhow, it all rules :o)

Anyhow, just been thinking - it's very odd indeed to think that in three days I'm leaving home. It's just all so soon... Ho hum :o)

It's a "Diamond SupraMax 56k USB modem". That ought to account for what you asked :o)

Sorry, I'm stupid. Yes, my internal modem. Well I don't really know what make it was or anything - something about Motorola or Aries or something... I don't pay close attention :o)

External modems rock! .-)
