It started at the end of last week. Or rather it didn’t start because our internet connection suddenly vanished.
I wasn’t too concerned at first because it does occasionally drop off. Unplugging and replugging the box usually puts it right, that and a swift kick in the modems, but not this time.
So I called someone in India who had me crawling around under the tv switching things on and off and checking lights until he told me there was some vague problem between us and the outside world.
An engineer would be required and he could make an appointment for Monday which displeased somewhat. An entire three days cut off from what passes for civilisation these days was not a happy prospect.
I complained to his manager who promised he would try to arrange an earlier call out and promised to ring me back. He didn’t, but the connection reappeared as mysteriously as it had vanished. Divine intervention I suppose.
And I’m still waiting for the engineer to arrive.
