No internet!!

Sorry I've been off line this week. Stupid computers!!!! or rather stupid 'Orange' our internet provider. They changed the DNS server (whatever one of those is?) and didn't tell us so we've been off line all week.

This week I've been working and knitting. The post would be far more interesting with photos so keep tuned!

Welcome back to blog land. I feel your pain. I too am on Orange and keep getting disconnected at regular intervals during the day. I did have pc problems but once they were sorted I still kept getting problems and realised it was the wonderful Orange! Have you ever tried ringing customer service? Not to be recommended unless you have an hour to spare and plenty of patience while someone reads from a script. They can only answer queries if it's on their script, providing of course if they actually understood the question. I am in no way a racist but I would like someone who understands and speaks basic English to answer my query. Why do they think if they tell you what kind of weather you are having in Manchester it helps with a pc problem?

I can empathize with you. We were having off-again/on-again internet a month or so ago. It was so frustrating, especially since our phone service is through the internet and we had to use the cell (ka-ching) phone for tech calls.

In the end it was outages on their part so we wasted all that time and money when they could have told us from the beginning.

Glad you're back.

I know you are into card making so thought I would send you this link I found. Cute card that incorporates crochet into it
