That new-fangled technology

I've been back a few days from a wonderful family holiday involving waterskiing (my first time - I managed to stay up for maybe 30 seconds), scalloping, sea-biscuiting, wine, food, presents, games.

I tried to connect my new broadband internet connection the day I got home. It connects, but drops every 5 seconds and reconnects - no good for downloading or chatting, obviously. Portuguesa Nova appears to have had the same problem, but she solved it just by unplugging her phone - and my phone was already unplugged at the time. In fact, when I try to have them both plugged in I don't get dial tone on the phone - kind of defeats part of the purpose of broadband. Sigh.

Happy New Year everyone.
