Snailing Along Again

Apologies to everyone whose blogs I regularly visit leaving comments - there seems to be a major fault with the BT cables somewhere & having believed it sorted (we had brilliant connectivity for a couple of days) we are back to almost impossible speeds.

I've spent the morning on the phone to our ISP & eliminating any internal wiring or router faults (disconnecting all phones, testing the Primary BT socket, using a different router, using a new DSL filter........) so that a BT Senior Fault Engineer can be called out without a charge of at least £99.99 to us. I have to call back on Monday to receive a definitive time slot for the visit. In the meantime I shall endeavour to enter challenges & at least leave comments where I have Wordpress email subs although my email functions aren't great either. Plain text isn't too bad but anything with a photo/picture/link or suchlike is a problem.

Oh Dear, you are struggling aren't you Paula.
I hope it all gets fixed for you and soon.
I'm having some problems with blogger and leaving comments, but I've no idea why?

Take care
Love Elaine xx

Paula - it's such a bore when the internet goes so slowly (or not at all). I remember when we first moved to Wales and dropped from 8MB to ½MB download - we nearly cried!! So I know how you're feeling now! Take care, it will be sorted eventually. Sending hugs xx

Aww Paula - I reall feel for you on this! :(

I always refuse liability on BT phone lines and equipment, and argue profusely to the point they would give me a free repair visit ;)

Missing you tho!

take care
