Intension, my church based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter starts it’s first Alpha course on Monday evening.
For those of you who don’t know what Alpha is:
“Alpha is an opportunity for anyone to explore the Christian faith in a relaxed, non-threatening setting over ten thought-provoking weekly sessions, with a day or weekend away.” (uk.alpha.org)
The Intension alpha course will be at Sweet Mandarin in the Nothern Quarter staring at 7pm for food 7.30pm for the talks and group discussions. The food and the course are both free. If you want more info check out alpha.intension.org.uk

I have been back in good old Manchester for two weeks now and am settling in well to my new flat in Ancoats. I will take a picture and upload it at some point but I’m without the internet at the moment which is a bit of a pain.
BT are installing a line next Tuesday which is going to cost me Â£130 pounds for them to flick a switch! Maybe it to pay for the ‘switch flicking’ qualification they had to send their engineers on, but it still seems a little steep! I’d understand it if they had to drill a hole through the walls and physically put a line in, but no, thatâ€™s all done! Oh well!
I started back at Uni yesterday with my first lecture on Distributed Systems and the Internet. It seemed quite interesting! It is an optional module, but I think I’ll stick with it. I havenâ€™t actually managed to select my optional modules yet, has anybody else found the new University of Manchester self registration and module selection a bit stupid? Duncan made a very valid point yesterday that the financial registration was extremely easy, wonder why!?

I was just sitting in my room, slowly packing up my stuff ahead of the move back to Manchester on Saturday and overheard an advert in the background.
AOL were talking about broadband, not surprising really but they were talking about wireless broadband, and their tag line was “Wireless Broadband the same price as Regular broadband” …”make the switch back to wireless”.
Um… wireless broadband? They are clearly trying to take advantage of people not knowing the technicalities of broadband.
After reading their website, the offer is actually a free wireless router with their packages.

I know, its amazing but the words “intelligent undergraduate” and my name have been used in the same newspaper article.
As some of you may know, I have been working for a company called Senokian Solutions this summer as part of the Shell STEP program. Last week I featured in the Birmingham Post.
You can read the article here: newspaper
I know I’m not the best person to talk about spelling but there are a fair few typos in the article. Look out for Senokian ‘expending’ their workforce!
