Broadband interference ...Don’t Blame The Neighbours

by Community Manager Community Manager ‎30-06-2016 09:30 AM - edited ‎11-08-2016 09:54 AM 9,568 Views

Blogimage When thinking of issues people have with their neighbours you think loud music, neighbour hood watch, garden wars, footballs flying over the fence…that one might just be me, my fault for having a 6ft goal post in my back garden. You certainly don’t think that your neighbours broadband service could be the cause of many family arguments when the much relied on Sky broadband service loses signal or connection.

 

Just recently I experience issues with my Sky broadband service, the whole household came to a stop when it continued to lose connection. When looking in to this issue I discovered that the cause of our disruption lay with our broadband router.

FOX has it all this October

Cancel all your plans and stay indoors with FOX (channel 124) this October.

 

Not even a blood-stained, raspy-voiced zombie should stand in the way of you and the brand new season of THE WALKING DEAD. Series 6 launches on Monday 12th October 9pm, just 24 hours after the U.S. Last season Rick’s (Brit Andrew Lincoln) sanity and humanity were called into question after he bulldozed into Alexandria, shaking up the status quo and alerting residents to the impending danger outside the walls. But is Rick the answer to keeping this haven safe, or the source of its problem? Will Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride), Michonne (Danai Gurira), Glenn (Steven Yeun), or Morgan (Brit Lennie James) join forces with Rick or leave him to self-destruct? The surge is coming… And even more good news for Walking Dead fans, TALKING DEAD, Chris Hardwick’s companion chat show, is coming to FOX immediately after each episode of The Walking Dead.

Merv's Movie Memories

Going to the cinema. Going to the pictures. Going to the flicks. Going to the movies. Whatever you want to call it, it's a magical place to go. Why? Because as you relax into your seat and immerse yourself in the film, almost anything can happen.

 

Let's go back a few decades. Most people can remember the first film they saw. I'm not one of those people. I also don't remember the first record I bought or the first book I read. If I had to guess I would say the film was either Dr. Who and The Daleks or Daleks - Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.

You are never too old to learn new things.

Just stick in at what you’re doing and never stop learning.

It’s New Year! Well it was recently anyway….

So why not learn something new? I decided last year that I would. I didn’t want to learn anything vocational as I have been down that road before and a lot of it was pretty boring. OEICS, Unit Trusts, derivatives, futures, pensions <yawn>.
