      Yes the connection will drop for a while, then it should all kick in to life. Your router should then report the new faster connection speeds if you check out the connection stats page.

      Did you send form AQ57/14B in triplicate to the heads of each department?

      Sometimes people forget to include the mandatory blood sample too. I believe it got increased to two pints last year.

      so far so good, will give it the ten days to settle down then start testing it
      love the avitar Scubbie i have my plans all drawn up to build a shed in the garden based on the Tardis,
      the trick will be getting it build painted done and dusted between the wife heading out to work and getting back

      Nice to hear that it has finally happened. No doubt you'll be playing around to see what speeds you are getting now.

      The pic was taken in Portsmouth Dockyard, in the Historic Dock area. Rather than give a detailed list of directions, I think that this should be 'lock around and you'll find it' thing . Something for the kids to find perhaps? A great point for a family photo call at the end of what could be a long day for everyone.

      Now as for the garden shed, that's easy...


      ...just let her use your Credit Card for a day.
