After a week here, I think I’m finally connected to the internet for good. Interestingly enough, I was able to just plug my computer in and connect to my email server. I’m not entirely sure how that works, but I guess the system must somehow distinguish pop from http servers and for some reason allow the former even without properly logging on. Anyway, I won’t go into all the details about how I finally manage to get connected, but just think about what it might be like if a millennium of tradition in a very large, very decentralized, very arcane place meets 21st century computing. For example, the several dozen IT centres on campus, all with their own little fiefdoms …

So perhaps I will occasionally post things now that I can. At the moment, though, I need to go back to translating Suarez. But here’s a picture of me in my room that Erin appears to have somehow smuggled onto the camera. I suppose it’s a good thing that she took a picture of the room while she was here, since the place is, shall we say, a bit less photogenic by now.

    Sydney, if you’ve managed to make that room messy by now, my hat is off to you. That is quite a feat. I mean, you only had a few articles of clothing and a few books in what was otherwise a very bare room. How could you possibly make a mess of that?? Wait. No. Please don’t answer that 🙂
