It was pretty foggy last night and I have had a photograph to take in my mind all year in these conditions…this isn’t it 😉 This shot came out much better that the shot I have been thinking about all year, perhaps it was too foggy…still, I can always have another go at it later.
It’s not been a good day today.
I left for work at 8.30am only to discover both mine and my wife’s cars, along with 3 or 4 other cars had been painted with white emulsion paint…the sun was out and was drying the paint quickly. Fortunately some neighbours with a pressure washer came to my rescue and we got rid of almost all the paint…it took 2 and a half hours though ;-).
This is a shot of the car taken with my Samsung Galaxy SII…I haven’t used the camera on this for ages…
BT have been on at me to upgrade to their new Affinity broadband package which promises download speeds of up to 80 Mbs and upload speeds of up to 20 Mbs. BT installed it today, and boy, is it fast – I’m currently getting an actual upload speed of 63.52 Mbs (earlier today this was as high as 75 Mbs) and 17.76 Mbs upload. Bearing in mind I used to get around 4 Mbs and 0.5 Mbs respectively you’ll understand why this is such an improvement.
I see and hear plenty of BT bashing but I’ve had ISDN and then Broadband here for the last 12 years and have had a very reliable service…it’s been down, briefly, 5 or 6 times in that time (worst outage was for 3 hours, usually it’s just half an hour here or there) which I consider quite acceptable.
