Just after publishing my last blog post - a week today, I lost all internet access. Sat on the phone for hours with very helpful BT people in India, 4 different ones to be precise, to no avail. No internet for me, although the broadband signal was allegedly fine... no wireless access for Vin, no Bt vision TV for Carlo, or indeed anyone in the family. This went on for days. My pooter whizzkid buddy couldn't find anything wrong either, tho Bt insisted it must be a software issue. We checked everything. Tried re-installing windows over the top, but obviously couldn't connect to download anything useful. What a palaver! Eventually decided to order a new Windows disc but even had trouble there as I refuse to buy Vista because of all the probs people have had, and let's be honest, Windows 7 is too new to really know... so it was Windows pro sp3 I needed, and can you find that anywhere...?
Actually, you can. In germany of all places! Anyway, after all sorts of fannying around transferring everything to an external HD, suddenly it all decides to play nicely again!! Grr! I'll still install the new disc when it comes... but honestly - it probably WAS BT all along! How damned annoying. I wasted all sorts of time... blew several gaskets... I could go on, but you get the picture I'm sure.
Anyhow. I'm back. Back with a card for CPS #153
and a pic of the gorgeous (huge) bag of cream and white antique lace and broderie anglais I inherited yesterday! I feel a few LO and cards coming on using some of that!
Happy weekend everyone, thanks for popping in.
