I am beginning to feel like the woman in Up Pompeii who runs around saying 'Woe, woe and thrice woe!
I took my laptop to the library today and it picked up the internet signal.
I came home and tried here - nothing.
After a while of doing other things I phoned to the ISP to talk to them again and .... I got an internet signal.
I came downstairs and started doing things and 10 mins later lost the internet.
It is a very intermittent fault, so off it goes back to the shop on Saturday.
I'm trying to think of some brighter news but its all a bit gloomy at the moment.
At least I am not in Pakistan or down a mine in Chile. All pretty trivial by comparison.
