Monday poem

Rain, rain, go away,
You bugger-up my internet.

Ok, it's not the best poem in the world, but I will still be very pleased when I get a new provider.

    1. Oh, and after a (nother) day spent indoors yesterday, I can now get into the old email accounts - just.

  2. I'm thinking there is no optimum solution. We have satellite. Extremely choosy about the weather it will tolerate.

  3. Have you tried BT? Or is that who you have now?

    1. BT is my next choice - they are responsible for EVERYTHING - including the copper wires outside.

  4. Over here in NYC, it's constant helicopter traffic cruising around above keeping an eye on us that seems to affect my internet connectivity. It's a bit spooky and doesn't necessarily make me feel safer.

    1. Nor me. You can shoot down a helicopter with a .38 pistol.

  5. Do you miss the old days of going to the library and hand writing letters?

    1. They can talk to people on the moon with easier, I think. In Rome, everyone has instantly fast fibre optic - at no extra cost. We are so ripped-off here, mainly because of so-called competition in the world of telecommunications - my arse!

    2. Move to Rome. When optic fibre is free in Bath, move back to Bath again. Greetings Maria x

    3. Just make sure you dont put your money in the bank in Rome, leave it in Bath.

    4. I wouldn't be able to leave my debts in Bath.

  9. How about popping in next door and asking them who they use (and if it works)?

    1. If they didn't have a password on their router wifi, then I would use whoever they are using! (No, not really).

  10. I have just discovered something else which is horrible about TalkTalk. If I type the name of a company into Google which is not registered with Yahoo, then I get an error message from TalkTalk saying that the page cannot be found - because TalkTalk have - without my permission - diverted my search over to Yahoo by reconfiguring the preferences on my router - MY router - remotely. Four-letter words cannot express my hatred for TalkTalk at the present.

    1. They have obviously got a deal going with Yahoo. A friend recently got as fed up with TalkTalk as I am, so changed providers. When it was up and running, she found that the new provider had just been bought out by TalkTalk and is run on their system. Great care needs to be taken when changing ISPs.

  11. I hope you find a solution soon,
    than you will be over the moon,
    and don't have to fret
    about Internet.
