We've been without internet for most of today which is unusual because we’ve had very good uptime since we’ve been here but it comes as a bit of a blow because the study is my refuge from the hurly burly of life and in particular from Jan’s never ending list of instructions.
Having worked long hours over the weekend, getting up in the dark and cold, and getting to work before you’ve even had time to eat your crumpets in bed, the sometimes real/unreal world of the internet is a welcome respite.
I reported the problem to my service provider and some nice chap in India talked me through a list of things to check, all of which I’d already tried. Promising to check the line, within the hour he called back and told me that there was a ‘network problem’ (the bleeding obvious) and that their engineers were on the case.
So now we wait.
