arrived earlier in the week and there was much squeeing to be heard Chez Hesadevil. Pay no attention to the silly cow who was disappointed that it wasn't illustrated with cartoons but - shock! horror! stills
from the film that airs on Sky1 in December. The only disappointment I felt was with the picture of the hogs and the lack of a picture of Tony Robinson.Cast List

- NTL finally got round to fixing our cable TV service. It died on Thursday 12th at 6pm. The help line the following day listed our postcode as one of the areas that had a fault. When I returned from the Minimeet on Sunday, we were still without a signal. Monday's fault list didn't contain our area.
I then went through the
checking proceedure with the customer serice woman (who was somewhere in India, with an accent so thick even MWNN
couldn't understand 8 words in 10). She finaly agreed to 'send an engineer'.
Thursday afternoon, the engineer turned up, checked the signal, and pronounced it strong as an ox - the fault lay with the digibox. I gently reminded him (yes I can
do gentle) that we had an engineer out in April for exactly the same fault but by the time he arrived the box had cured
itself. I asked for a replacement box then and was told 'they're very difficult to get hold of, missus'
(the lying bastard). This new engineer 'just happened to have brought a new box with him'. So we now have a new, smaller, neater, but more powerful digibox.
Just as well, the thought of switching to Sky with all that entails for us (new holes in walls, re-routing the cable downstairs and
a new TV to replace the one that we salvaged from the Ark) was not top of our 'to do list'.
