The mouse was buried yesterday. I now have a brand new Packard Bell optical mouse, that has done away with the need for a mousemat. What am I to do with the lovely Moving On from Spike one with that gorgeous picture of JM?

Prorgress has been made on the mobile communications via the laptop. Thanks to NetAway, I can connect using any landline, anywhere in the world; and when Orange het round to data enabling the Sim Card in the bluetooth phone, I expect to be able to collect emails even where there isn't a landline. Fingers crossed that the new French Sim card comes data enabled, I'd hate to have to go through what I've just experienced in the UK again - in French.

So, mes amis, the next time we go a-cruising, I should be able to keep in touch and update the old LJ via email. The only thing I won't be able to do is surf the boards.

Unless . . .

Do you think OnSpeed will work over the mobile.

Oh, and the dialup service for NTL is playing up again. MWNN gave the go-ahead to them for broadband and was promised a phone call (before 4pm) from the engineers to arrange installation - two days ago!

And, last but by no mean's least Happy Birthday onetwomany. May today be filled with whatever your heart desires - and more!

Good to see old NTL keeping up that standard. Hey the probably 'forgot', never mind, eh?

Should've put 'Moving On From Mousemaats' instead. Having said that, I still use a mat, and mine's optical.

Uh, how does NTL cable broadband help you dial up when abroad? It was supposed to be ADSL over BT and ditch NTL altogether.

It doesn't. HE decided that NTL broadband was the cheaper option as it allows us to ditch the expensive BT line. We'll be using NetAway (Roaming pay-as-you-go(sort of) ISP) to collect email, using the bluetooth phone with a French data-enabled Sim Card. (Once I've verified that the UK one works.)

This has been a steep learning curve but one that has proved fruitful.

That will be great if you can update from France :)

Congratulations - at last - broadband.

Is that the German singer Peter Gabrielle?????

No broadband yet. The engineer, still hasn't phoned. I think it might have gone the way of Orange's promise to data-enable the Sim Card for the bluetooth phone; i.e. it didn't get done yesterday, I had to phone again today.

Now the laptop is able to get our emails using the bluetooth to dial up the server. We can use it in France, once we get a French data-enabled Sim Card to use while we're over there.

How did that happen, I have just written my entry at 19.30 hrs on the 3rd Feb, and on the text it reads 4th Feb. 02.28 a.m. I am usually asleep at that time.

It doesn't register your local time, but rather the time on the server where your entry is logged. (somewhere in the US)

You might consider the Onspeed option of making the connection faster. It's all done with compression of the data, apparently.

Which reminds me, you never did update me about your news about the teaching job. Did I miss the LJ entry?
