My Extended Absence

Greetings all!

I just thought I should pop in and give a heads up over my extended absence.

This time surprisingly it is not down to family or work but a more annoying obstacle, my Internet provider.

As some of you know I moved recently and my IP screwed up the transfer, their engineers failing to turn up twice in a row. So I told them to screw their service (a bit politer than that xD), and went to get it from someone else......only to find the previous IP screwed up my records which until fixed means no one else can quote me. Finally got that done today, but it will take three days to replicate in the other IPs system!

So to say I'm annoyed is an understatement! I've been without Internet for nearly a month now and I am finding it difficult to get by without my regular por....ah....CN fix xD

I have very limited mobile data hence I have to ration it :(

So long story short, I am still here, and I will be back and posting regularly once my Internet is sorted.

Sorry to all those who I know are waiting on me, especially the TVC II players. I would have posted sooner but I really thought it would have been sorted by now..

So hopefully see you all soon!

Ok, I'm going to bounce you a PM.

I had the same problem with BT openreach screwing up a port to sky about a month and an hald back so I bought a Dongle to tide me over.
Cost me £30.
Came with 3 months usage and a terrible 1 gig fair usage but even once over fair usage it has unlimmited browsing so it works on facebook, ebay, Carpe etc, just won't play videos.

Anyway still got the dongle and my net is working now, has a decent speed on it so bounce me a message back and I will mail you it.

I'm glad to hear that it's nothing more serious than an internet issue, although that's annoying in its own right.
Sorry to hear that mate, we've been royally screwed over by one ISP or another over the years.
Most of my mate's have had bad experiences with BT, not turning up to do the jobs and the like.
But all of 'em seem to be into trying anything if they think they can get away with it.
