I'd forgotten just how bad it is to have no broadband. Note the past tense. I had forgotten. For various sad and bureaucratic reasons involving Vodaphone, iHug and the other users of my network, I'm now being reminded -- and for another two weeks will continue to be reminded.
That's one reason posts here have been short in recent days; it's hard to point you to great stories and articles on the internet when I can't read them myself.
