It seems more like like three months rather than the three weeks that we have been without our Internet connection at the new house. Good old Manx Telecom. They used to be a well respected company, known for their efficiency and innovation, however, after being bought and sold between various private equity companies a few times, standards appear to have dropped. I am told that the broadband/ internet division has now been outsourced to a third party, hence, when we requested the transfer of our service to the new address the landline was done on the day of the move but we have had to wait three weeks for our Internet connection.
My mobile 'phone is a basic pay-as-you-go with very limited data allowance, which I was carefully saving for important emails and messages only, so casual browsing has been foresworn.
Mind you, we have been so busy with the house move that there was little time left over for the luxury of online chats and suchlike.
I have missed Blogland and am now trying to catch up with some of your blogs. I may take some photos soon and share them on here. You have been warned!
