Brick House, Day 9.

Woe is me, woe is my dongle.

It matters not what anyone says, central heating is not a patch on this.

We returned the hire car on the wettest day we have seen for a long, long while.
Walking -yes walking - through the downpour we made our way into the city to the shop that is "Orange", a new super fast dongle was then acquired and pocketed. Buying shares in the bus company (by way of a ticket) we took our new prize back to the house.

Needless to say....... it didn't work!

Phoning a help line is akin to wading through mud up to your neck, you know you are in deep when they ask if you have turned it off and then back on again.
An hour on there got us nowhere other than it must be a signal problem in our area.
Five bars on 3G is not a problem.

It turns out their software doesn't work but I can still connect through windows, sorted!

Until next time..................

OK, now is the time to take it from your (local) experts. Grinning from ear to ear.

This is a very comical take on our technology problems. ATB!

Hi Rusty,

I have left the speakers on the boat, but we will be looking forward to hearing the dialogue when we get back.
