At the end of last week I decided that trying to get Orange to reconnect my office line and WiFi service was proving well nigh impossible. Of course, I’ve still no idea how or why I was disconnected but we’ll get into that (and compensation) once I’ve been reconnected.
Having called in a few favours, reconnection is now scheduled, but by no means guaranteed, for Monday 28 June, some 34 days after our disconnection.
Freed from having to hover near the Livebox waiting like a lovesick teenager for Orange to call, I’m going to enjoy the forthcoming week where wall-to-wall sunshine is anticipated. I shall be out and about as much as possible.
In the meantime, Orange have lent us an Airbox but it has a very weak signal. A Zoom call, for example, takes up all its capacity. This has meant we’ve been unable to watch any television programmes via the internet, such as this weekend’s MotoGP at Sachsenring. Following the action on Twitter really doesn’t cut it. It’s the third race I’ve missed which will become four next weekend at Assen.
Plus I’ve been unable to publish any of my usual posts littered with photographs. I’ll also be using this week to try and find some new work arounds. The changes to WP mean I can no longer access my photos chronologically by month or use photos directly from Dropbox. Also the new editor refuses to recognise anything written using the old editor, again a bit of an issue for me. But I’m confident, I’ll come up with solutions.
Meanwhile, thank you so much for all your supportive messages.
