Yesterday, 5 groups in 2 man-teams navigated their way across London’s sights of attraction. But it wasn’t simply using Ovi Maps and locating point X. We were only ever given coordinates, which meant one wrong digit placement could lead us anywhere but where we had to go to. Once getting to the correct destination there […]

My broadband just stopped working. After getting past the frustration, I’d normally attempt to fix it (myself or get a mate to do it). Instead, I decided to try using the N97 as a modem.
