Internet Issues

Aside from the usual work related dramas I have also been struggling with a very poor internet service from our friends at BT. After some nine phonecalls to the wilds of Bangalore or wherever else in India the Broadband technical support team are located they have finally discovered that the problem is in fact a line fault that an engineer will be fixing next Tuesday. At least I think is what he meant when he said he would 'see you next Tuesday'....

It has been really frustrating but to be fair we have never really had any problems with BT over the years. It does make it doubly frustrating when you are also trying to set up a new PC as well!

I hope to be posting on a more regular basis after Tuesday with not only a battle report, details of a couple of new additions to the collection but also a very important meeting tomorrow taking place between yours truly and a well known member of the blogosphere.

I will say no more at this point so as not to spoil the surprise....;-)

I hope everything goes well with the line repair and your meeting tomorrow. (I really wish I could join you.)

All the best,

Hi Bob,

It will be good to be back on line at full capacity once again - I just hope that we don't have any other problems with it! Sorry you cannot make it tomorrow and I hope that all goes as well as can be expected - rest assured a glass or two will be hoisted!

All the best,

Hi Paul,

It will be great to catch up again after what is it - 6 or 7 years? Lots to talk about and of course the small matter of retail therapy, beer and food.

See you tomorrow old chap and we shall hoist a glass to absent friends aka Bob!

All the best,
