Is it just me, or is anyone else having problems in the last few days with there PC and Internet.
I have noted that a few others who visit the site are reporting PC problems.

I have been having a few niggles all week, nothing serious but annoying.:mad:

Last night Internet connection vanished. The whole computer froze and had to log out and log in again. 20mins later Internet was back. Had been fine all day, and is fine now.
Is it just me. :confused:

Conspiracy theories come to mind.:) :)

Hi Steve,
No it"s not just you, Iv"e found everything really slow as well these past few days.
I"m with Sky on the free broadband & I wondered if as they are ging to stsrt charging £5 a month from March whether or not this was deliberate to encourage you to pay more for an even faster service. (Talk about Reds under the Bed) I think I"m getting paranoid in my Old Age.Also Iv"e heard something about The Queen setting up a Website this week, so maybe us mere mortals are not getting such a good service.Paranoia creeping in again!
Regarding your Common Courtesy Post Steve, if ever I have forgotten to say Thanks I"m sorry because as far as I"m concerned you have been a Great Help to me.
Well Happy Hunting All
Regards Littlemo

Hey Mo,
Don't get me started on "conspiracies" and "paranoia".
My wife had a text message intercepted and it was edited. She spoke to the sender as she did not understand the text after it was edited. The sender relayed what she had sent and it was confirmed that it had been interfered with.
Anything that 'flies' through the air, can be read and messed with.:eek:

Better go now, someone could be watching.

Hi Steve,

It was the same in Aus! Outage for about 3 hours or so, we blamed my Granddaughter for knocking the modem, but the URL you posted absolutely makes sense. She'll be happy to have an apology!!!

Cheers,
Jill
