I've not seen 15 mins of TV yet due to buffering. And you want to tell me that my internal wiring is dodgy, (I removed my face plate such a long time ago and hacked my wires in - search on 'carpet' for photos). Or mebbe it's my laptop. Or sproglet's. Or my PCs and Minimac - probably all of them, eh? 6 digitally connected devices, plus 2 phones, won't let me view even 15 mins of uninterrupted soap.
My Apple Tv, over a wired connection...that doesn't work either. Despite my best efforts of playing dumb to see if it was just me. Nope, when you break it down, it's pretty darned simple - you have nothing that anyone elsewhere in the world would call 21st century connectivity. Even in the 1980s, this would not have counted.
But apparently I know sweet nothing about broadband, or computers, or punch cards, or Fortran, or Acorn Atoms, or what the Net could be used for, or how the tech works, or ...well, anything about broadband, compared to a county councillor who gets his secretary to print out his emails as computers are too new fangled.
If Big Society keeps accusing me of lying, then what are we aiming for? The 82 year old that Libby took a photo of on Saturday at Warcop Exchange. Is Pat who you want to connect? Or are you going to finally let me, with all my ideas, and all those like me, connect? Because, do you know what, I have absolutely no chance over this unbelievably corroded piece of copper you try to tell me is sufficient for my needs;
However many openretch engineers you stick between me and the exchange over the coming months, however much of MY money, whether from my BBC licence fee or my income tax, you spend.....
this is not IT.
