General drivel.

Nightmare!! Getting on to AOL took 3 hours today! I've tried Internet Explorer,(AOL not responding,or network unavailable),switching the whole lot off, so as to re-boot the router, then all of a sudden, i'm on-line! THREE hours!

My computer guru is coming over to take a look. I think it maybe the router.

Oh, and my printer is firing blanks, except when you print the test page!?

It never rains. I wish it would though, my garden is dying!

Sure it wasn't AOL or your provider? The number of times I've assumed it's my computer or router and it's turned out to be a fault beyond my ability to deal with it.

We've had a shower or two for each of the last three days. Barely laid the dust, but it's actual rain!

Dump Bill Gates and his effing Windows. THAT'S the cause of your problems, believe me! I used to get SO bloody frustrated with mine I uninstalled (no such a word?) it and put in Linux Ubuntu (It's free).

I haven't had any trouble since and everything loads so fast it's unbelievable.

Heavy water forecast for tomorrow? Nah!

John I think it is pretty general at present - difficulty in getting on like. About twice a week I have to unplug - go away - and try again later.
And then there's trouble in the comment boxes. Drives you dotty.

I was complaining to my aunt in Florida how the Internet here has been quite slow. And she said it's the same there.

Maybe The Machine is going to stop as
E M Forster predicted.
