Our internet and phone line has been down all today. I have therefore had to tether off my phone to get any kind of connection, and it is slow. In a sense, it is a walk down memory lane, to the days when the main broadband was this slow.
I had to Google the likely speeds for my 3G, and to be honest it is faster than I thought at 6-7Mbps. I was not sure if that was a real bandwidth possibility or just pie in the sky, so I loaded a Speedtest app, and can confirm that it is actually delivering me 5.46Mbps just at the moment, which I have to say is pretty amazing considering. It certainly blows out the water my first broadband, which ran at the nose-bleeding speed of 0.5Mbps but which was, nevertheless, awesome compared to the 64Kbps of my dial-up modem (younger readers may need to ask an oldie about this).
I have been able to get on with bits and pieces, but all at a much slower speed than normal.
Tomorrow I am on my travels to near Bath to visit my client, a one and a half hour meeting that will basically take me all day, with a two and a half hour drive each way. I am therefore unlikely to blog, but I will be able to get through a shed-load of podcasts.
LO is away Saturday night at a fiftieth girlie night away, so it is just us lads for most of the weekend. Maggot 2 has a match Saturday and Sunday, and Maggot 1 wants to go over to Pompey to a five-a-side football place with his mates Saturday afternoon, so Sunday evening is likely to be lazy time, as we all get to know each other again.
Have a great weekend, and speak next week.
