So, my internet connection died just before 5pm today, I tried a soft reboot of the router after watching it connect and drop the connection every other second for about 10 minutes; when a hard reset also failed to establish a connection I tried to call tech support - only to be told that the phone lines are only open 9am - 6pm; all fine and good BUT IT WAS TEN PAST FIVE!!!!

Connection successfully re-established at 5:20, no obvious reason for the problem, and no Open Reach monkeys fiddling at the box (I went and looked).

kinda reminds me of the time back down in hampshire when not only did l loose my connection for 24hours but also lost 3meg of download speed, l started with nearly 7meg download and was left with little more than 3meg, even when the connection did come back it wouldnt stay connected for more than 5mins.

l eventually called my ISP, which l believe was EurISP at the time, took weeks to get them to send out an engineer, tho from what l was told there was a back log, it seemed that there was a rather major outage which happened to me be on the day l had issues. and when the engineer did visit he played with my filters cutting me off.. and caused more problems. eventually l was let out of my contract early and and moved ISP, tho l never got my the speed back l wasnt suffering disconnections any more.

I watch RT news and one item in particular. Forgot the Russian Government abandoned all this business about playing around with clocks. I had missed a few days (programme only on twice a week) when doing a programme check I found it was on 1 hour earlier. "rhubarb" It is definately time all this clock changing was STOPPED.

IF RUSSIA CAN DO IT WHY CAN'T WE?
