YAAY! In at last!
« on: 08 September 2017, 09:39:45 AM »
Big day yesterday, we moved into our new home.  Furniture arrived, minus 2 new sofas to be delivered on Saturday.... and the BT engineer came and we now have a landline and broadband!  It's a bit of a mess still, and lots of hard work will be needed to get straight... but we spent our first night here last night (went to the local pub for bangers and mash last night).  The house has many fantastic advantages, including halving our monthly bills, and a few down sides... e.g. The upstairs has shrunk dramatically with the introduction of furniture!  No, wardrobes or linen cupboard, but a little ingenuity should cure that... meantime clothes on the floor in piles and hanging racks cluttering the place.


 Broadband router is in the sitting room... my PC is in the study (3rd bedroom) and it needs to be plugged into the modem with an Ethernet cable as it's not Wifi enabled... might be time to give in and get a laptop as the iPad is fab but there are things I cannot do with it.

Congratulations. If wiring the PC up to the internet is an issue you could look at getting a wifi adaptor? I think you get ones that you pug into the usb drive to wifi enable the pc though i've never used one myself

Got a wifi adapter this afternoon so am back on line on my PC!  Cost £32.99 - every time we turn around since we moved we seem to have to shell out for something or other!  Julian is constantly running round to the Range to get bits of DIY stuff, doormat, toilet roll holders etc etc.

Yes, we have the sofas, but the screws provided to affix the legs were not long enough, so we have the sofas with the transit legs on until they can send out an upholsterer with correct screws.  Meantime after they were delivered I went back up to the "study" (aka bedroom 3) to discover that my PC had died.  Seems somewhat permanent.  So I am back on the iPad again. 


Still, on the bright side I won 2 lots of £25 in the premium bonds and some lovely friends sent us a case of wine as a housewarming pressie😀😀

So, we rang our tame IT expert who described something to try (take out all memory cards and then resite them) and lo and behold I am up and working again!
