A week later, and finally my stuff arrives. I don't think a week is normally required, but in this case the MS-Move folk were confused. It seems the boxes that were in my old office hadn't been labelled, so they left them there. They hadn't been labelled as they had never sent me the labels. Ah well, "my" fault.
At least now I can look at my family photos, my Ship-it Award, and most importantly, My microscope is working now! Back to my roots at last!
