UK fibre broadband availability

I'm moving flats and want to bring my fibre optic broadband service with me. The exchange is fibre-enabled, but I can't seem to find a straight answer on whether the specific flat I'm moving into is. How can I clear this up? [more inside]

Should I join the UK genome project?

I'm interested in joining the UK personal genome project (PGP), as I like big science and think that the project looks interesting and has some admirable aims. However, I'm not so sure about having my genetic information freely available on the internet, and I don't fully understand what the risks of this could be. I found this article on the gurdian, but any more information, resources or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'd like to buy 6 months of unlimited Internet in England.

I'm moving house next weekend and new place does not have WiFi. It's a six month lease and I'll probably be moving out of the country after that. I use a lot of internet (streaming music, downloading podcasts, films, sending large files, using cloud services, etc.) and so I need something unlimited or pretty near it. Everything I'm seeing online so far is either too much £ for too little internet (£20 for 2GB per month, seriously??) or too much commitment (12-18 month contracts for phone, broadband and TV). I only need internet. What are my options, if any? Thanks!

Looking for information on the dotcom boom

I'm looking for good books, articles, documentaries etc. about the dot-com boom of the late 1990s, in particular anything about the experiences of people working for tech companies while it was happening. I'm also interested in how the boom manifested itself in the UK (and to what extent it did).

bbc iplayer in usa

how can I watch BBC's iPlayer in the US? A one-step solution is ideal, without having to install and configure a system-wide proxy (which is the current way I can think of doing it). Some software or plugin custom-setup for iPlayer?
