Hi gang.

Just to let you know I'm still alive. Im currently living between my parent's place and my flat. The big stuff (t.v, bed, book case etc) is all there but i have a load of other crap to take over yet. I am also in the process of registering my car onto the German net - which is a real pain in the ass i might add.

After i get that sorted i need to apply for my tv and radio license and then after that I will be arranging to get a phone line and broadband set up in my flat smile.gif

I can see myself getting all sorted somewhere around the 17th and onwards.

Thanks for all understanding and as soon as i am able to i'll be posting (something i can hardly wait to do!)

Cheers, Keith

Yeah, what's up with this? Are you having to get licensed to watch TV and listen to the radio, or are you planning on starting your own media outlet? Details, please!

Yes, i know this is a strange concept to you guys. They have tv/radio licenses in germany (as they do in UK). The license is NOT to broadcast. It is for WATCHING. Im not 100% sure of the German side, but in the UK your money goes towards funding channels that dont show adverts. BBC 1 and BBC 2 are the guys that suck all your money away.

In Germany it is similar but it goes mainly towards the programs and movies that they show.

Its very odd concept I know, but if i decide to "skip it", then i will get in big trouble and fined a ridiculas amount of money!

Shocking, isnt it?

Cheers, Keith

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?

Thats a strange concept to me, how will they know if you don't have one?

Also quick question:

Flat = Apartment?

Yes, Flat = Apartment smile.gif

How will they know? Well im sure they dont have secret radar guns that can hunt for TV/Radio signals, but Im sure that if i were to have a party or the landlord came over to have a quick inspection and he/she discovers that I DONT have a tv/radio license then that is how id get caught...

Honestly, i think the whole license thing is a load of horse shit. The UK one is damned expensive. Last time i heard it was over 100 pounds. The German one will be around 20 - 50 euros.

But i need it if i want to be a law abiding citizen happy.gif

Internet is my addiction. I don't even play Halo anymore because I got the internet.

Halo has Godzilla sized popularity in America so thats saying something!
