Since our Suberhub was unfortunate enough to receive the new BUS_V2.37.13 firmware around the 21/10/14 our whole experience with Virgin Media Business Broadband has been terrible, totally a joke would sum it up quite well. Now in all fairness to NTL / Virgin Media Business, the company I work for has been with them since around 2003 / 2004 for business broadband, i’m told the company has never had any major problems in the past. I’ve worked here for over 3 years and the only issue with the internet until recently 30mins of downtime one morning. However earlier this year we upgraded from the legacy 10mbit package to fastest package available to Virgin Media Business Broadband connection available at the time, 50mbit. Part of this upgrade included our old modem been swapped for a Superhub, which is essentially a modem / router combo. In our setup the Superhub is essentially used as a modem, we have five static IP addresses which are assigned to our own router. The only thing the Superhub is doing is providing the internet connection. Wireless and any additional functionality is disabled on the Superhub. The Superhub in this configuration has worked great in our office from…

It’s pretty obvious I have never been a massive blogger, using my amazing maths skills… (also known as the calculator on Windows 7 that calculates differences between dates) I have worked out its been 1 year, 7 months, 1 week and 3 days since I last posted anything on this blog. 589 days is a pretty long time, I have never really been big on blogging or even status updates on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. I do however find it intresting looking back over stuff i have wrote, and done many years ago which is why i keep telling myself I should blog more… which never usually happens. A lot has changed since i last posted in 2010, I have graduated from University which is the achievement i’m most proud of so far in life. I remember back to when i started in September 2007, the first few weeks were a massive shock to me… everything i was taught on the first day just went streight over my head and i remember thinking i had made the biggest mistake of my life going to Uni. At the time i was 21 and had not been in education since i finished college when i was 18, so i dont think…

My Wisdom Teeth have slowly been growing for a couple of years now, I really do wish they would hurry up and finish… they appear to grow a bit, then do nothing for 6-8 months then grow a bit more. Usually they don’t bother me much at all when they grow, a slight discomfort but nothing more. However these last few days it feels like a bomb has gone off in the back of my mouth, one minute my mouth will be fine then the next it will feel like someone is trying to drill in to my mouth for hours at a time. Not great at all, Ive not been able to concentrate on much and have found it really hard to stay asleep without waking up every hour. I never really understood how a tooth growing could cause so much pain, but now I really do understand. Anyway rant over! I hear the pain of them growing is nothing compared to having them taken out, so ill be quiet and hope it never comes to that! Talking of removing Wisdom Teeth, thats something you probably should not Google when there giving you pain… I posted this post two…

The speed at work at caries massively i have noticed during my time at University, in less than 24 hours i’ve managed to type 2903 words, do a loads of screen shots and even go though and check the document ive been working on. For me thats great, in other assignments at University where ive had to write 3000 words i must have spent well over a month researching, struggling to understand what i’m supposed to be doing, deleting stuff ive done or simply just re wording half of it and generally feel like ive wasted a lot of time. Wouldn’t it be nice if it was possible to work at that speed all the time? that would mean the majority of essays ive had this year would be out the way in less than a week, leaving months to work on my final year peoject. Maybe im just a slow worker? the majority of the time i just find it hard to work at a decent speed. Then again if i look at tutorials I have done for Digiex like the: How to hack a 250gb sata drive to work in the 360 tutorial i have typed 1400+ words, taken many…
