Mobile Broadband is pissing me off tonight

Post by Carl D on June 11th 2008, 8:17 am

Sheesh, I'm at work and my mobile broadband is freakin worse than dial up tonight.

I don't know if they're having technical problems or too many people are online with mobile broadband and/or using cell phones in this area (it uses the cellphone towers).

Pages quarter/half load and I come back 5 minutes later and its still the same. I'm fed up with looking at that stupid hourglass. Laughing

This is only the second time its been this bad in the 6 months that I've had it.

Taken me ages to browse through the threads here, there's a couple of video threads I wanted to look at but I'll have to wait until I get home and I'm on my 'normal' broadband. Rolling Eyes

Thanks, Marti. Laughing

Been like that for 3 nights in a row now. I'm off work till next Wednesday so I don't need to use it again till then. I'm going to try it out on one of my laptops here at home later to find out if its just a problem they're having with their cellphone towers or whatever in the area where I work or if its a problem with the little USB modem.

Well, it works perfectly fine at home so it must be a problem in the Craigie area where I work. If its still playing up when I go to work next Wednesday I'll give them a call. (4 days off for me at the moment). yippee

I'm using it along with my regular home broadband to download an 8 part file from RapidShare. By having 2 ISP's and 2 IP address ranges I can halve the time it takes to download the whole thing since they make you wait an hour and a half (they say one hour but that's BS) between downloads unless you have a paid account. That's on top of the stupid 2 minute wait each time before you can actually start downloading unless its 'Happy Hour'. rolleyes

Don't tell anyone I'm here. I'm supposed to be working. Laughing

Everytime I see the Heading "What Cheeses Me Off" I have to remind meself that I have never heard this saying before. I know what it means but I have never heard the word "cheese" used in it before. Is this a new way of substituting another word in place of cheese? If it a local saying? Just wondering.

I thought it was a pretty common expression?

Oh, well, while I think about for a while, here's something funny:

Been caught in a 5 month time warp or something have you, Doreen? tongue1 biggrin

Spying on everyone (and taking pictures, if needed) is The Observer's job. Laughing
