Update: Managed to upload this one at better quality, you can find it at the link below - I'll be putting up the other pieces as I can

Well I've been trying to upload every piece of this project, but thanks to Virgin Media deciding that dial-up speeds are better than the already overpriced broadband we're actually paying for (listen guys, retro is fine in some cases, but internet speeds ain't one of them)

But take that Virgin, we've got Sky now! And once the broadband's active, I'm gonna be able to actually upload an image larger than 300k, or download a file that's bigger than 1mb without the connection cutting out! Wow, technology these days, huh?

So yeah, the rest of this brief's gonna be uploaded within the next two weeks, but I said I'd upload this, so here it is!

Thanks everyone who participated in the survey to choose its name, especially you here on SmackJeeves!

And does that say 'by David Hasselhoff'? Why yes. Yes it does. Explanation will be posted with the rest of this stuff!

Ahh Virgin Media strikes again. I've not been aware of it much since I've been at university, but when I came home for christmas it was...better than it has been, but still a bit meh. Point being, they've at it for nigh on a year now...

Oh and nice cover design! Sorry I can't tell, is it a physical book, or computer wizardry?

Aye, for some reason it's striking us particularly hard the past few weeks - I tried to perform a connection test, but it actually timed out after 20 minutes of nothing even being detected ¬_¬ I'm not a fan!

And thanks! ^_^ Yeah the book itself is real (or at least the cover image folded/taped down over the Secret Diary of Adrian Mole), and that got cut and pasted digitally over a fake background! So it's kinda hard on the senses since neither the perspective nor the shadows are in any way accurate! :P

I like.

Though given the Hoff's behaviour around his own children, I doubt he'll be actually winning children's author of the year soon.
