    I hope he's ok. Best wishes.
    I had to pick my neebs up yesterday he slipped round the back of his house
    fell backwards & ended up in the raised flower bed, he was there about 20mins & his
    wife seen him out the window an thought he was having a rest then opened the window
    to ask what he was doing. Bloody freezing outside too plus he's a big man so there was no
    way she could get him up. I ended up replacing a bathroom pull switch for them. :)

    It's bloomin' cold today. Just had the boys from Gigaclear arrive to install a new faster broadband line, 400Mb/s for £20/month. This will seem like warp speed compared to BT's broadband 7.3Mb/s download, 1.0Mb/s upload.

    That's a good throughput. Here BT latency on 15ms but was fed up with BT's cost-to-service. Between posts the Gigaclear boys knocked on the door, "We're going to have to come back another day, we can't find the connection point in the lane..." :rolleyes: Really, in this modern day and age one would have thought they'd know to within a few metres of where they installed the nearest connection point. Got them to call through to Gigaclear Central and get info' from their fat controller. Sorry Guv', we don't know...:confused:

    Logically, I suggested they use/carry GPS loggers in their vans to accurately pin point their already installed network take-off points...mmm, have I stumbled upon a business idea?

    I wouldnt know if they figures were good or not as its not my bag, I know when something isnt
    quite right when the router flashes red lol
    For the last few months they have been fitting new tinterweb cables here so I sure they figures will
    go up as well as the costs. We pay 35 sovs for the phone & web. (BT) we are in a small village with
    no piped gas so still a bit behind the times. o_O

    Today's noos.
    Bruv has had his op, they removed the lump on his liver and his gall bladder for good measure, as it was making stones and he has a stoma so, well, you get the picture.
    He gave us a "Good Hospital Guide" report on Leeds hosp. Apparently much better than Hull, with "panoramic view of Leeds" etc.:rolleyes:
    Anyway it "seems" he may not have C in his lungs but he hasn't really made this clear.
    He is very upbeat which totally beats the cr@p out of me as I'd be the opposite.
    More laters.
    Have a nice day!

    Good noos.
    Wifey's credit card co are taking up chasing Oaksh!tfurnitureland re the money owed, but I've already warned them to expect court action if they don't.
    So am currently waiting to speak to a yuman being to warn them the official legal email has been sent.
    (Their return email said they wouldn't answer emails in under 14 days, :rolleyes:)
    At least it is a freephone number and the music isn't annoying!;)

    Oh and the Frog embassy is open to accept visa applications. Wifey tells me that if you get a long term visa you can visit all the Schengen countries. But if you want to just go on holiday under 90 days to both Spain and France, for instance, you have to make separate applications for each country.
    What a feckin mess!:rolleyes:
    One does wonder if they still want our tourist Euros!
