Growing local

My pc died tonight.  I'm not going to post much until it is fixed.  I have access by the phone but it is painful. 

Keep growing.  Don't worry, I can seek solace in my Kumquatcello.  LOL.

So my pc looks exactly the same as before it left home.  Not much remains of the original insides though.  New motherboard, processor, network card, ram, operating system and solid state boot drive. A lot of work has been done here in the last week or two.  Expect some video spam.

LOL. Stevo, you know me too well.  Installing a new path across the big girls' yard, making the odd video and generally suffering from digitial withdrawal.  However, I am also trying a new approach to making rum.

Hmmmmm. Phil. Hmmmmm. Have just had a conversation with my provider about this. Not that they themselves claimed the modem fixed the landline but it didn't start working until I plugged in the new modem and one of their techs worked their magic. Hmmm.  I give up. Done now and all working - I'm not game to touch anything.

And yes, god forbid Andy should be silenced. BLF would go into withdrawal.

If it's only a phone filter you need, I've some spare. They are cheap at around $10 to buy off the shelf.

More response to Andy's reliance on his Kumquatcello … God forbid Andy should be silenced ;-)

Maybe its just my sense of humour but when Elaine first 'favorited' this blog straight after Andy posted it I took it that she did so because of Andy's enforced silence....

Lissa - a new modem doesn't fix a landline. More likely the phone filter than the modem itself. Beware of ISPs just wanting you to buy their over priced modems.

Don't you hate that.

I finally have a landline again after perhaps months without it (my Mum likes to call it and work used it to contact me, especially when the mobile fell apart in my hands!).

I have just read the letter that came with the new Modem though (the one that fixed the landline) and it's a loaner, they expect it back in 14 days :/ How does that solve my problem?

Love technology. Hate technology.
