2015-09-16 : Pebble Steel Time Arrives

Pebble Time Steel vs Pebble Steel

I think that this is worth mentioning in its own news posting... I've just received my Pebble Time Steel which was a Kickstarter campaign that broke many records! I've been waiting [not very] patiently as I was an earlybird backer.

I think that you'll agree, that Pebble LCARS looks way better in colour!

I'm presently still waiting on my steel strap arriving (it'll come in a later shipment due to manufacturing problems), but side-by-side with my Pebble Steel it looks pretty cool.

2015-01-07 : Flashy Lights

Some major (or minor / irrelevant depending on your geekiness level) news... I now have all of the lights on my DSL WiFi router flashing again!

After just over two years of participating in the SamKnows / Ofcom monitoring survey to see how good FTTC broadband connections around the country are, I've now disconnected the "white box" and put all of my network connections back to how they used to be.

A lot of useful information gathered over that time - my downstream data rate has been pretty constant at about 27Mbits/s (although the 38Mbits/s that I got for the first few months was more to my liking) and upstream is hovering around 5Mbits/s.
