Under The Floorboards...

I was speaking to Paul earlier about various things (internet, computers, death, alien invasion, mouse corruption, tea, socks, bleach, floorboards, and lists that you talk about turning into tags etc, etc) ...

Can you remeber that song that Bruce Willis covered?

"Under the floorboards...
Down by the sea...
On a mousetrap with my baby...
that's where i wanna be".....

(all-though he was busy under the floorboards again looking for an old sock that had a bit of room for improvement!!!..Or was he chasing a mouse? or was it re-wiring the Black Isle ready for broadbean a new faster internet connection)

.... a little faster than an asthmatic hamster keeping the bellows going for those big downloads!!!

Anyway by the by, I'm in the process of switching ISP's and we all know the shite! I'm going through at the moment... The connection is great...I've moved from 2.2mbs on virgin to a steady 7.6mbs with orange/freeserve/wanadoo or whatever they want to call themselves...
...this only came about when I switched my mobile phone contract from 3 (greatest reception in Inverness and outlying areas) to orange just to incorperate mobile phone and internet access into one bill...


Apart from saving money, the service from the english speaking company based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire has been excellent and highly recommendable (and not a call centre in India to be found!!!) so... without pissing on anybody's fire, the move has been a good one except I'm still waiting for my wireless broadband modem that they have named a Livebox, I'm starting to think that by the time I recieve mine it will be a Deadbox.

Occasionally when I tell people (including my fathers mothers wife) what I do I get asked if I live in a shoe box. Perhaps its the where I learned about patents (not in shoe box), but I don’t really see the necessity. I can access all of the patents anywhere in the world via the my magic balls of fatty tissue.
