I'm back!

My Cultural Experience is back online!

Our new Virgin service was installed today, and while it sadly hasn't gone flawlessly (a duff V+ box means I can currently only watch the free channels; though there are phone sockets throughout the house they're mostly BT, so there's only one I can actually use), the Internet works just fine (and the installer man was very nice and helpful, and the installation process itself was painless... I just need a new box under my telly). Speed tests show it operates close to its 10Mb promise too, despite our new house being relatively distant and residential. Upload speeds are a tad pathetic though.

Anyway, what this means for you, dear reader, is that updates should be more or less back on track. Hurrah! And I may even get round to watching some more films...


Half-Blood Prince stars imagine post-Potter future by Breeanna Hare
(from CNN.com)
No big surprises, really, but it must be odd to have been doing something for the majority of your young life and then have it ending. It'll be interesting to see if they can make the leap into being Proper Actors (leaving Potter behind as something they did when they were young) or if they all flounder and end up only being known for this.
