Yeup. I tend to be in The Royal Oak on Tuesdays - Quiz Night :)

I went to Uni in Bradford and...well...came back as quickly as I could ;-p

Yeah. You'd think 10x bandwidth for 2x cost would be easy to sell. I just
haven't gotten around to broaching the subject. Last time I mentioned
cable Dad started on a tangent about how he'd seen what they did to the
pavement ('the tarmac wasn't even the same colour'...although I see no
difference personally) and how they're not going to do that to his drive
etc etc etc. I guess it might be time to try again...
