Catching up...

I remember once reading a theory that domestic machinery converses, only we can't hear it...

just after the modem died, I picked up my digital camera.  It started, but then froze.  And a sinister rattle was evident...

Yes, said the lady in the shop, it will take three to four weeks to return to you after being repaired or replaced under warranty (thus cutting it very fine with Christmas in prospect).

So the modem died, and the camera, and it was all fun and games to get them sorted.  I especially appreciated Optus replacing the modem at no charge, and then charging me for it, and only admitting this after I asked them the second time... as I said, fun and games to get it sorted.

But now it's holidays, the modem's working, the camera's back (I missed it!) and I'll bung in a few posts here to catch up.

Did you miss me?  I kept reading your blogs and missed blogging.  It will be good to re-establish the habit.  The amusing thing is that the blog's stats haven't changed much - this blog seems to gather a bunch of traffic from googlers, more so than regular readers.   But Isabelle's nice comment on the modem's return (isn't it good to have term finished?????) reminded me that there are regular readers out there..
