All change...

A quick scroll through the archives reveals that WhyNotSmile has been considerably less vociferous since her early release from work back in April. This is not because she has less to say; rather, she no longer spends all day sitting in front of a computer with very little else to do. The library has helped of course, but it tends to be quite busy so you can't really sit and compose these little works of genius while other people stand by waiting to go online so they can fill in job applications and so on.

But this is about to change. I have finally arranged for broadband to be installed at home. I've got this for the almost worringly low price of £7.50 per month, so exopect more posts on incompetent bandits soon. Anyway, it's being connected (or whatever they do - activated maybe) on Wednesday, and from then on, expect normal service to slowly resume.

Also, I hinted in a previous post that I had found gainful employment; you have all been waiting eagerly to find out more (well, espero has - clearly her life's not busy enough right now). So, I have been helping out a friend who has a web design business; he has more work than he can handle, so I've come on board to do a bit of work. He does the business/commercial sites; mainly I'm designing sites for churches (I say that in the plural to make it sound impressive: so far I've done one); so if you have a church (or anything really, like a community group or anything along those lines) and you'd like a website, get in touch. You know you want to.

No need for a website at present, however I do have a need for cheap broadband (and clearly some sleep). Who did you get your deal with?

I got it through O2. It's £7.50 per month if you have an O2 mobile (even if it's pay as you go, as long as you top up £10 every 3 months). Otherwise it's £12.50. That's unlimited downloads, not sure about the speed (not the fastest), and a free wireless modem. They were very helpful when I phoned them; I called on Saturday and the thing is arriving on Monday, and it's being activated on wednesday, so fairly fast. Like I say, they may yet turn out to be bandits, but so far the signs are good.

I also looked at Virgin, who have a deal for £7.50 per month, if you get a virgin line which is £11 per month. I think.

See you Monday, I hear...

Let me know if you change your mind about needing a website. You never know.
