New flat UK plug

I saw this video recently of a designer's attempt at a new style of UK 3-pin plug.

See the video here

The UK plug is acknowledged as one of the most sturdy and safe electrical plugs in use in the world today, but this new flat-style plug is very interesting - especially useful for travellers, and also for use in the home.

My last plug count for the computer desk was 18 plugs!

My new ISP - much better

Here's the test results from

Same line speed of 2Mbps, but it only costs 1/4 as much and the latency is 37ms as opposed to 337ms! That's nearly 10 times better than ANTEL.

My Virgin cable internet is due to be upgraded from 2Mbps to 10Mbps at no cost during June 2009.
