It’s finally fixed! (Go Sky!)
Rang Sky on Friday (using a direct to their CST department) and got in touch with a superb bloke who, after trying every single thing he could to fix the problems there and then, eventually realised it was either a problem at our end (which we were pretty certain it wasn’t) or a problem at the Exchange (which we were pretty certain it was).
So he sent off an order to BT Openreach to send an Engineer to our local exchange to yank our connection from whatever computer/server/thing it was hooked up to, and connect it to a different computer/server/thing to see if that would help.
(I should mention here that, although I’m a geek/nerd when it comes to computers, laptops, websites & so on, how ADSL works completely baffles me)
BT Openreach don’t work on weekends, so we had to wait until today (Monday the 9th of July 2012) before the connection change was done. When I got back from work, the Router showed that the ADSL connection had died a couple of hours ago, as the current connection’s uptime was 2-3 hours ago. However, it was connected at 4096kbps down & 512kbps up – a low slower than the 8MB we were getting before.
So I rang them up, and after changing a few settings, the router reconnected and a few seconds later, connected to the internet! Not after 2-3 like before! It’s all fixed! w00t!
In other news, full access has finally been restored to my Minecraft Server, but the old rule still applies – you only get access if I know you! If you know me & want access to my Minecraft Server, just send me a message & Ill give you access to it.
The British Grand Prix happened over the weekend, apparently the Qualifying was a bit of a washout, oops, damn you British weather. 😛 I’m gonna watch it later, or tomorrow. Whenever the missis is out, or I’ll never hear the last of it. She hates F1.
Well done to Murray btw – he didn’t win, but he did damn good to get 2nd place and played a fine game against Federer – the only problem is, Federer was in his element and pretty much unbeatable.
Had my HTC One S replaced again – it was having Wifi troubles. The replacement is a different model though, so hopefully they one will fair better.
That’s about it really.
