Everyone else had broadband whilst I was spending megabucks on Mochas in the bar of a local hotel with wi-fi.  So yesterday I installed its diddy black box with its three lovely blue eyes.  Then I read the booklet.  It seems that it takes ten days to settle down and achieve full speed.  Ten days! What is it doing meanwhile?  I picture it lying on a sofa like some Victorian spinster with the vapours waiting for a sniff of smelling salts to wake it up and get it going.  I feel such guilt about the poor thing's sickly health that I have drawn the curtains round it and will use it very gently and infrequently until it has completely recovered from its tumultuous journey. Off to the Three Salmons again!
