My cowie has had to go to our office in Cardiff today because their network was totally down.
They'd spoken to 3 different people for "is it plugged in?" type troubleshooting before he was told to get new equipment and go replace the router or whatever was causing the problem.

He got there to find the router unplugged.

Then again, I do have a raging addiction to Ginster's pasties. I can't ever be more than 10 miles from motorways services.

i would have thought you'd reject the ginster's as some kind of londonised bastard child of a real pasty

Though I prefer the Cornish Bakehouse in town.

As well he should. So much negativity just isn't healthy.

hey that's the life of a service technician (like me).

It's called job security. You go find me an Indian living in India who can plug that router. in. :lol:. Yes I realize when they have full functioning robots, I'll be out of a job, but I don't see that happening any time soon.

They are, but they're still more addictive than crack. Let's face it- seeing as it's impossible to get a genuinely great pasty anywhere north of Truro, londonised bastard pasties are a vital lifeline to the beleagured masses.
