Meanwhile, in other news, rwrylsin got a job! She starts on Dec 4th - our shipment from Glasgow is due to arrive on Dec 6th ! And apparently we're only going to have our landline and broadband connected at our new place on the 4th ... I forsee many more visits to rwrylsin's sister's place to "borrow" their Internet access before then :-)
... right, time to head off to MSFC !
 We're on a 6-month lease, and at the end of it, the owner plans to renovate the place before giving it to his daughter. Of course, he was apparently planning to do that a few months ago, and seems to have changed his mind. We're hoping to buy a place before the 6 months is up ... wish us luck !
