This is the final installment of this soap-style, badly written diary of my broadband woes, fights and mishaps. It's been nearly two weeks without broadband at my new house, battling my way online through the means of dial-up Internet.

Sorry: hit "post" instead of "save"; this backend system will be the death of me.I first came across Adeona last year when I was doing some external research, and it's only really just come to light.
An update to the YouTube blog yesterday has calmed fears that Viacom would be able to pick out identifiable user information about every video ever watched on YouTube. As answered before in my Q'n'A post, there was a possibility that recriminations could be filed against each individual who watched something which was copyrighted.
I'm continuing my diary of the troubles I'm having with getting broadband into my new house. I never thought it would be this difficult, but indeed these posts prove it really can be.
As you know from my previous post, it has been an absolute battle to try and get broadband connectivity to my new house in Canterbury. All the other seemingly complicated "hardware based" products like electricity, gas and water supplies have been easy to set up and continue flowing.
Here at ZDNet, we all get on (most of the time) and I'm lucky to be working with some absolutely lovely people. Behind the scenes, we have a discussion group, and I've been bitching about my lack of Internet the last week or so.
University places are increasing more and more as the years go by, whilst e-learning and "in-house training" becomes the norm within business.

Privacy International have said that Google's new Street View tool could breach data protection laws if people's faces are shown, according to the BBC, whereas the creator of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, has made it clear that the success of the web has been because it's open for everybody, and that it needs to stay that way to continue growing in technological development and size.
Note: re-posted after withdrawing post a few days ago; no changes made since then.I would put this very much on par with a past Scoble moment, as I’ve been lucky enough to see something which actually impresses me.
Note: I just want to quickly apologise for the lack of posts recently; moved into a new house and broadband won't be set up for a while, so had to resort to dial-up which is proving troublesome. I'll do my best, considering this is essentially my income, as lack of posts means I can't pay the rent.
