Cold and Wet

We had the first frost last night; well the car was frozen anyway. And the rain has followed. I’m going to freeze cycling home! Apparently it is snowing in Ebbw Vale.


We took Jack up to the climbing wall for the first time today. He stayed interested in his Dad’s climbing for a couple of hours. It was a very sociable afternoon, with a fair few families and kids, plus a couple of mates.


Apologies for the infrequent updates. Winsock2 got corrupted on my server, knocking me off the internet. Despite fixing that, the rest of the network was still screwed. I.e. you could see my website, but I couldn’t see the rest of the internet. So I shelled out for a hardware router from Linksys which I have just installed. It took about 10 minutes, and with a bit of configuration for my website, all is well again.
That’ll teach me for scrimping!
It’s damned nice to have everything running properly again. I’ve been limited to dial up from my iBook for over a week. When stuff you rely on doesn’t work properly it gets damned stressful!
