Or it's validity. I think you need one to design a completely user hostile interface. The sort they seem to have in most shops if you complain they've overcharged and it has to be corrected.

Boring boring zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
A mutual reaction to each others posts then. Excellent. :)

Supporting leave is not racism. Don't let others suggest it is.

Wow! Still, for what I do, what I have is OK - when we were having the problems I mentiond, I tried (silly me) to download a programme onto BBC Iplayer. After about two hours of churing away, I gave up!

Oh, and reason I tried was because it was something I particularly wanted to watch, but had missed when it was broadcast

I don't understand what half the posts are saying, all I know is, I wouldn't be without the internet for anything. ;D ;D

I know the feeling, and the time marches on, the more indispensable it becomes. About 6 or 7 years ago the winter gales brought down our telephone line  and we were without a landline, and therefore internet for three days. Luckily we did have mobiles, but they were very basic - no cameras, no texts and no internet. Back then it didn't seem too serious -damn nuisance, but not game changing. Thinking about it I suppose a similar 3 day hiatus could be coped with , but not permanent loss
Mike - although having said that - if it was permanently lost, somehow I would have to cope

Thinking about it, it was probably nearer 10 years ago - time goes by so quickly

..There's a song in that...I was suddenly left with no internet last week for two days. Initial reaction was an overreaction..Finally settled to try to watch TV..Nope, still nothing of any interest without iPlayer..Still had radio 4 but only as aired..Re-discovered my books which helped greatly but it was a big lurch..
