and this week I seemed to hit them all. Luckily none were too serious. I was going to leave the surveys up for a few days anyway but it went on much longer than intended.
First of all I was tied up at work on some business for the last two weeks with little time to do anything but I am getting paid and so I suspect I should give them some of my time in return. So I ended up with little time to do anything.
Next up was a conversion to BT broadband at my parents. What a disaster. The speed at the extension was 0.2Mbs, Yes. Zero point two. It kept timing out and it was impossible for me to download my mails, even browsing sites was a nightmare. So for all those I have not responded too it wasn’t that I was ignoring you. It seems that paying up front for an 18 month service is not a good idea. It seems that full speed can only be obtained at the first point, outside the door and where the BT engineer installed it because of convenience. Won’t cause a problem they were told. Didn’t cause a problem for BT who pocketed some cash for a poor service.
So in the next few days I need to catch up on my emails, post some radio files I believe and put some new posts up.
Just to keep you talking have a read of this at Lizzies. Hurricane Sandy, A Rehearsal For Global Cooling?. It is something that is being talked about more often and we have already discussed it here as a potential scenario. It seems to be moving up the list of potential events rapidly despite everything going on around the world. I’ll be coming back to this scenario over the next few days are it has major issues for us.
