I’ve just heard that we won’t have the internet until next Wednesday (25th). That’s a bit longer than I’d hoped for really… can anyone explain to me exactly what it is that takes so long about provisioning ADSL? I mean, seriously, it takes absolutely bloomin’ ages to get a DSL line enabled… what are they doing for all that time? I reckon ADSL start dates work in the same way that software deadlines work – pick an arbitrary date sometime in the future provided that it’s about ten times the amount of time you actually need…

*ahem* sorry, did I just say that out loud?

I think it’s probably just BT who are the slow link in the chain – they always seem to be. We asked for our phone line to be activated on Saturday – they only managed to get it done yesterday!

Anyway. Alex mentioned on his blog last week about a film currently being made which is only known as “Cloverfield” – it’s a JJ Abrams production. I watched the trailer once and thought, “hmmm, that looked pretty good. I’d like to see that when it comes out.” I’ve watched the trailer again (several times) since then, and I have to say… I’m hooked! I think I’m going to be glued to the net for developments on this one, and I’m going to have to go and see it when it comes out…

    My company opened a new warehouse a few weeks ago. We ordered the ADSL link about two weeks before opening, it’s still not installed over six weeks later! The poor sods there have been using remote desktop over GPRS to get their stock data…

  2. Cloverfield is actually a covername… theres a bit more found here… http://www.1-18-08.com/ – they seem to keep adding photos. Also watch http://www.aintitcool.com for more news on it.

  3. Six weeks sounds like an awfully long time not to have ADSL – I can just imagine using remote desktop over GPRS… not nice! Still, less than a week for us now, not too bad 🙂
