So, I was expecting things to be back to normal, but they still are ohh so slow. I’ve been trying to keep up, but when it takes so long to open up a post, i’ve been very selective in picking posts to read.

Oldlady, i’ll try and check transport, but I think i’ll have to spend my time in hostels since i’m the lone mod there. Mim, maybe you can check that forum if you could, incase it takes me forever to get in.

Hopefully, things will pick up and i’ll be back more regularly.

Opera is a web browser. They just released their newest version (v.9) this week. Fast browsing, very nifty features.
