And all that chit-chat and pedantry/accuracy was off-topic anyway.

Peace and love to all.  ;D  Play nicely.

It took me 2 hours to write it.

I do not know why I bother, it's just a mess now, thanks.


I enjoyed reading your positive experience.

As did I. With some jealousy. My mind can hardly cope with the thought of a connection that is lightning-proof, cheap, and 90 [1] times faster downstream, 900 [!!] times faster upstream. It would be like the change from dial-up to DSL all over again, but much much larger in fact.

@Mike, apols if you were offended, as clearly you were offended.

Itís sometimes frustrating to start, or contribute to, a thread, then see it head off in unintended directions. I have experienced same myself, I am sure we all have.

I suppose my own view tends to be that if there is an outstanding question, either in the original post or recent contributions, then it is rude to ignore or dismiss it, which does annoy me.    Otherwise my perception is...  itís an internet forum, going off topic is not a crime, or not yet anyway.

Not much different to chatting to friends in the pub (if only, ever again).  If I ask a question, Iíd expect it to be acknowledged.  But if I merely express a point of view then chances are it might simply act as a spur to further conversation.   Iíll still be happy to engage in that conversation, even if irrelevant to my earlier contribution.

In this case there was no question posted and no question outstanding, hence I perceived no rudeness.   I personally had nothing to add to your excellent post, and especially since since it was posted in a Ďchatí area of the forum,  I engaged Licquorice and Burakkucat in off-topic debate.  Apologies again as clearly on this instance,  my perception was flawed, offence has been caused. :-[

Ha ha ..... I was looking forward to a good read about a positive OR experience. I've put mi' popcorn back on the shelf for next time ... in the eternal hope there will be a next time.  ;) ;D

I did see your comments in another post about 'it would be nice to see some positive OR experience', so I tried hard to do a post with some positive news but it all went 'Pete Tong' .

That's very kind of you tickmike .... i'm guessing my other post mentioned the many thousands of faults and provisions that we perform daily, in all weathers, in all terrain ... that generally go un-noticed, cos' nobody thanks the proverbial milkman for delivering their milk everyday ... but they'd have something to say the day that it wasn't.

Hey-ho, such is life, such is folk.  :)

I can thank Openreach engineers more; I forget but Iíve had about five or six callouts this year as I have four lines not one, so four times as many faults plus they are very long and also I keep getting lightning strikes once or twice a year, bad one in Feb which caused real damage to the lines and a near miss a few weeks back which required two call outs and two engineers on the first one for some daft reason - one chap could have done two lines in one visit. When I get a polite and knowledgeable engineer who does not frighten Mrs Weaver  ;) I use this website to thank them :

- Iím not sure about that link, it looks as if it has perhaps been individualised and decorated. You might need to edit it.
