I don't know if any of the tin boxen down on the main road at Harrapul near the Claymore restaurant might be anything to do with me. Janet has seen such. I have not.

BT now coming on Tue.

The most recent Google Street View images for that section of the A87 are dated July 2011. So too old for me to examine any recent infrastructure. If Mrs Weaver would be able to take a few photographs, when next passing the target area, we might be able to identify the gubbins.

A few simple tests that you could do would be to enter each of the telephone numbers that are associated with each of your lines into the BT Broadband Availability Checker and see what those pages display. If your EO lines have been migrated to route through a primary cross-connection point (PCP) it would display the cabinet number.

To misquote the maestros --

Quote from: Flanders & Swann
'Twas on the Tuesday morning,
The Openreach technician came.
He called me Mr Sanderson,
Which isn't quite my name.

I can't come up with another four further lines, detailing a further misfortune, to finished off that verse . . .

No mention of such from that page.

I have used that telecom-tariff thing, very good.

The BT thingummy checker says something about  Bridge Tap: Status U
What does the U mean? Unknown maybe?

Yes, I believe it is "U" for unknown.

Am trying to get Tue appointment shifted as I realised that they said am and am never good so asked AA sales if BT could be moved to the 17th pm, but nothing heard yet and I have possibly blown it. Sales never responded to my email which was sent at weekend, so I successfully IRC'ed them today and they said they would try, but no confirmation yet.

Sales did come back to me. The BT man is now set to come back on the 22nd in the afternoon to install new line cwcc@a.2, and so then we try again.

BT man should be coming this afternoon. Due to serious illness I would be ready at my end, so the plugging in of the small switch and plugging in of all modems will have to be done later in the week. I have done the small switch config ready, also the Firebrick config with vlans is written, ready, but untested. I can't remember where I have got to with programming a modem ready to fulfill its role as modem #4 listening to admin i/f on 192.168.4.1. I have finished testing the tool that I have put together to customise XML config files for modems to set them to be modem #n, so I can just use that on a suitable modem.

Mrs Weaver is too busy in the morning to help me with modems anyway, but we planned things so that she would be free in the afternoon to see the BT man. It is just a matter of testing the line at the time, that is all that really matters; making sure it works; and also ensuring nothing else gets broken in the process.

BT man has been and gone. Very young chap from the North End.

Looks like there is no PPP possibly and the line entry in clueless for the new line cwcc@a.2 is light grey. Briefly said a hello to one of the support guys from AA in IRC but no one got back to me and time was getting on. So no luck at all. Will talk to AA in the morning.

Modem synced this morning, following chat with AA support. It had been 'training' possibly all the time for umpteen hours.

Stats are utterly horrible, u/s sync is 43kbps !! downstream is 1.515M. So the upstream is slightly better than dialup at 33k.

Nightmare. Asked RevK if he would help the guys out.

I can't remember the magic incantation for bits-per-bin listing.

Was incredibly ill yesterday, paralysed and burning, then burning cramping innards at night, now just legs burning a bit. All caused because the Fentanyl patch was running out. Memory is completely gone.
