Phil, so frustrating, I 've been lucky, been with Pipex 6 years without any trouble whatsoever.
Well here's my last job of 2010, the shield is 5 feet in height and will be screwed to the outside wall of the Kings along with a smaller version as a hanging sign.
Will deliver these today, have a drink with Angie, and then down to the Waggon, catch up on the gossip and scoff free bar snacks, it's a hard life.

Good Morning Y'all.

Phil
In my experience Virgin are excellent when it comes to making claims, signing you up, taking your money and providing a good working service. But when it goes wrong they are totally useless and almost uncontactable.
As it turns out the Virgin broadband was quite good when it worked but toward the end the speeds were getting lower and it was off and on too much. Then when it it went down for a week and they wouldn't do anything about it until I had jumped through enough hoops to start a three ring circus, I decided to move to BT. Virgin then got really nasty, they took a months money, sent some unpleasantly terse emails and then cancelled my email address 3 weeks before my contract ended.
The BT service, I am happy to report, is better than a 56k dial up connection, but at least if it goes wrong there is only BT to blame.

Morning all,

I'm still having problems with Virgin Broadband, their status page says my service is OK now, but I'm still having the same intermittent problems. I think I will be looking for a new provider shortly.

Phil


Phil, that staus page says everything is OK even when the service website reports a total outage. I think it was the NTL service site I used to check on to see the truth.
They even disagree with themselves sometimes. Ringing Service Announcements on 08000 524 329 at the moment will also tell you that everything is OK, I don't think I have ever heard it say anthing else.

This is the first time I have managed to log on since I last posted. I nearly gave up for the day, I am getting quite annoyed as these are the only ISP I have ever been with and I first signed on when it was Birmingham Cable. The status page still reads no problems for this area. I am definitely looking for a new provider now. It will be their loss as my average combined bill Broadband TV & Phone is always in excess of £100 per month.

Evening all,
Just got in from 11. 30 this morning, still bored out of my brains after spending all day in the Kings, after dropping of the signs, don't know what's wrong with me, can't seem to settle down, need to travel, going to have something to eat now and go to bed, bet I'm wide awake by 1 o'clock, it's a nightmare, what do I do in the morning.

Morning all.
Lyn I even thought of that a few weeks ago, and was knocked out by the price of the ticket nearly £200 return, coach is only £20 but takes so long to get there (4 hours) not worth it for the time I would have in Brum.
I went into Morrisons yesterday for a can of corned beef, and picked up about 7 cans before I found one with a key attached, spoke to the girl on the checkout and was told people are stealing them because someone has found that you can use them to get a trolley without having to use a pound coin.
