So Near And Yet...

Grrr. Hours trying to install broadband and now find myself defeated by which bit of wire needs sticking in where? Is there a word (like dyslexia) for wire confusion? I wish I had an Ed or a Mr Bolan tucked away in the attic for times such as these.

The kneebone's connected to the... something.
The something's connected to the... red thing.
The red thing's connected to my wrist watch. ...

Uh oh.

Thanx guys. That's a lot of help. I still can't get it to work and will have to call on the very uncommon logman belonging to Zoe.

Mr Bolan said...

And tell him to tidy up, he looks uncommonly scruffy in those pics on flickr. And quite unlike the ten year old I recall most.

Is the attic airy, with sheets over Victorian furniture? Is the rent cheap?

The attic is very bright and airy and full of books. It's a bit on the low side tho'. No Victorian furniture. Rent a very affordable £90 p.w. plus computer maintenance and garden chores.
