Internet Problems

Hi Friends and followers, just to update you with the computer saga.

I have lost my connection with my main PC, the one that has all my programs for camera, picture editing, upload, printer, you name it that's on there. So I go to my internet provider to ask for the code, which they generate, to be reconnected and they want to charge me, £25.00. Now they generate a new code each time I log on so I have no ability to keep a record of this code. The internet service failed, which they provide and has caused this but I have to pay. Plus they have changed ownership and changed all the contracts, without telling us customers at all. Just so you know the new owner is Talk Talk, now I have nothing against them, but the service is now dreadful, phones not answered for 2 hours, kept hanging on for 1 hour just being transferred through one department after another, then the member of staff hung up on me because I had to ask him to talk more clearly and slower. I think he took this as a racial slur, when I just could not understand his accent. So I then had to start all over again.

Enough already, I am changing internet providers, well you guessed that!!! So it's going to take a month. I can use the internet on the lap top but am not able to do anything else. I was amazed the lap top worked, its not been used for 6-8 months.

So I will not be blogging for at least a month, but will look at all your blogs and check messages on here too. I will really miss you guys, getting comments and blogging. Hope to have lots of news for you all when I am back on line.

  1. Having gone through a similar thing, as you will remember Joan, I do sympathise....very much, its all so frustrating.
    Interestingly, a friend recently had an awful time with talk talk,
    but I have no experience of them myself...I think they are quite low down on the Which list
