Blinkin' internet connection!

Have watched a fair few older films recently.
The Dirty Dozen was film of choice last night. The wind was howling outside, the rain lashing down. We were huddled in bed with the TV and leccy blanket on. About 40 minutes into the film and the bleedin' internet went off, weather related we presumed. Pff!!

Luckily we know from experience that the film will ask if we want to carry on from where we left off. So it'll be Dirty Dozen (part 2) tonight Smile

Yes, it's strange, but the weather can do some odd things to broadband. Someone told me it was water getting into the the exchange cabinets. Don't know if that's true.

Is that what it was? Wet leads! However, did once have squirrels nibble through the cables. We've got old-fashioned, overhead ones, and they climb up the poles and bite through the wires. Varmits!
