People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*
 

Hallelujah!

We have broadband! We FINALLY got the wireless connection to work last night after having to reorganise the entire house to connect the ethernet cable (the reason we had to get wireless to begin with is that the location of phone point doesn't allow us to connect cables without major hassle). Once the ethernet cable was plugged in it did all sorts of fancy things and the wee wireless light came on, and Fiance and I did a slow-motion lap of honour round the spare room with the music from Chariots of Fire playing in the background.

Unfortunately, because all our virus checking thingies are out of date the pooter froze about 10 minutes later, and I was unable to write my triumphant 'hurrah it's working!' post from home as I had planned (complete with cheesetastic picture of me sitting at the PC, grinning). So instead I'm writing this from work while our systems are broken.*

Still, at least we're able to get on t'interweb to pick up viruses, which is definitely progress.


*I'm starting to think I have a strangely powerful magnetic field surrounding me, that has the ability to break electrical equipment from 20 paces.

yeah! weekend blogs!

Our connection is wireless as B and I both have laptops. However, strictly we haven't out own broadband connection and pick up our neighbour's. The thing is the signal strength comes and goes and I though this was to do with him downloading this, apparantly not as its the strength of this connection out-put. So since Boyfriend and I are sitting still while the signal strength changes we can only assume that neighbour is running around his flat with his router in his hand. p.s he's the strange one. p.p.s we get our own BB at weekend since we opted for Skype as our landline - TF!
