The guy at work emailed me the linux version of the Nortel VPN client, I just downloaded it, and put it on my laptop, I didn't get around to trying to compile or install it.

I went out to lunch, and I decided to close one of my bank accounts, since I don't use it, and I haven't know for the last couple of years what the PIN for my card was, so I couldn't withdraw money from it anyway.

It was far too easy to close the account I thought. I just went into the bank, went to the information desk, told the woman I wanted to close my account, and gave her the keycard.

She asked what sort of account it was, and I couldn't even remember, so I gave her some confusing answer, changing my mind about it.

She typed something in on the computer, then got me to sign a slip of paper. I signed it, but my signature has changed a bit since I signed the back of the card a few years ago, so it didn't look anything like the one on the card.

The woman didn't say anything, didn't care, and didn't ask to see any other ID or anything. After that, we went over to one of the teller windows, and they gave me the balance of my account, in cash, and I left.

I found the whole thing to be a joke. I could have lost my wallet, and someone could have just picked out the card, gone in, asked to close the account, scribbled a signature on the slip, and been given all my money.

I'm glad I closed my other account with that bank a while ago, and now don't have anything to do with them.

I bought a couple of DVDs, since I spotted Kill Bill volumes 1 and 2 on special in the music shop. I haven't got around to watching them.

On the way home, I looked for open wireless networks again. This time I sat on the other side of the train, and I saw about 110 networks.

Here's a list of the SSIDs again:

Oh, the way I get the above list, is with the following command:

cat Kismet-[date]-1.csv |cut -f3 -d";"|sed "s/</[/g"|sed "s/>/]/g"

When I got home, the digital STB I ordered had turned up. I opened it, and looked at it, but didn't get around to setting it up.

I decided to check in the captured spam folder on my email server, to check it wasn't accidently flagging emails as spam.

It wasn't, but I was quite surprised to find that the mail folder contained over 43000 spam, and had collected them in less than a year.
