By Way Of An Apology

Just to apologise to anyone who may have answered one of my questions and received no feedback from me, only we’re experiencing extreme difficulty with our computer at the moment. We think possibly our modem is ill. Unfortunately this part of the world is a no-go area for Broadband, unless you happen to be a millionaire and can afford satellite Broadband, so we have to tangle with dial-up – “tangle” being the operative word! We’ve already lost two modems to storms as the lightning affects our telephone line and fatally knocks out the modem so, if there’s a storm brewing – which is often for this time of year, it’s a mad dash to reach and unplug the modem before it dies. I’ve been lucky to get on this site today and have no idea how long it will allow me to remain until it decides to throw me off. We tried to see our local computer man but it appears he’s on holiday, so I may be away from the site for some time until we can get the problem fixed. Please try not to do too many interesting things while I’m away – I hate to miss all that goes on! :o)

Regards and Happy Gardening to all.

My whole computer went up in smoke in Jan 2008 because it didn't mix with lightning and faulty cables. Actually a good thing as I had been resisting the internet which my old computer couldn't have handled anyway, confining my internet usage to cafes and the public library. Now I had to get a new computer which now manages the internet very nicely. And I am living in a place with better cables.
