A quick word of warning that I may go off air rather suddenly, and not come back for a day or so. This is the week that we're finally swapping internet providers, and although it all sounds straightforward enough, my betting is it won't be. One, the new router needs to arrive. Two, Sky will switch off the old service... sometime... during the day... with no advance warning of when. Three, the old router needs to be unplugged and replaced with the new one, with all the right wires in all the right sockets. And four, BT will then switch on our shiny new service... sometime... during the day... with no advance warning of when.
And Dave's away.
I foresee difficulties - the router won't have turned up, or Sky will kill the old service at midnight and BT not set theirs up until 11pm, or I won't be able to get the new router to work.
So if I do suddenly vanish mid-post, it'll be because of that, and not because I've just been kidnapped by aliens. On balance, the aliens might be less trouble...
