    Room 101

    ISPs. Way back in the dim and distant past when life was normal (February) my ISP (SKY) wrote to me with notice of a price increase (best part of 10%), so I decided to switch to BT (I worked out for another couple of quid per month I could also get BT Sport - that turned out well !). BT duly sent me the kit; come the appointed day I disconnected the old gear, connected up the new, switched on only to find IT DIDN'T WORK! Having spent a good couple of hours on hold (listening to fucking Adele) I finally spoke to someone (several someones actually) to be told that everything appears normal at their end so they have to send out an engineer who will arrive IN THREE WEEKS! I'm currently limited to using my mobile data so everything internetty (apart from Netflix) is being rationed.

    What are you doing to kill the boredom.

    I've been catching up with the accumulated filing that I've neglected over the past few years when I didn't have the time couldn't be arsed and also done some spring cleaning. Quentin crisp was wrong about the dust. I've also watched a few DVDs that have been sitting on the shelf for a while. I'll get back to reading soon no doubt if it drags on much longer (Whaddya mean, its only been a week?)

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I'm currently watching Hugh Laurie (Amazon Prime Video) in House. A little formulaic, but entertaining enough nonetheless. I'm approaching the end of season 3, at which point the core team breaks up, so let's see if the replacements can maintain the standard.
