Having succesfully had an error detected on the line by BT, the entire line has now died. That's no phone service, never mind DSL! We're still waiting on the engineer on Wednesday, and in the meantime, they're redirected calls to our landline to my mobile, and are refunding us for the line rental.
Have had curry and risk with Dave & Catherine this evening (and am now using their DSL), it's been a great evening. Regular readers of my regular (hosted on the DSL alas) blog will know Dave as the owner of the Binatone DSL500. Have been ironing out a few issues with my insserv headers to bring up the line, and will now get around to publishing it real soon on Rubber Turnip.
