Back in December I said how much difficulty I had with Scottish Power and how they should come and ask me why I was switching and try to be nice to me? Well I wonder if they read Advogato as two nice representatives came around to apologise and ask me if I'm sure I'd like to switch. Since I'll be saving £300 a year by switching and they can't match that the answer was no, but at least they now have some valuable data for their marketing department.

More work on Home Automation continues, and I've had a couple of builders in to estimate repairing the various faults in the house. I still need to find time to analyse the vibration in the southern rooms - the magnitude not only varies on temperature (which implies to me some problem with some of the road repairs which are different materials) but also seems to vary proportional to wind speed, wacky!
