Just when we had decided that we couldn't stand living in a country without a proper internet connection, and we had to move!
DSL has been progressing slowly in the richer areas of Athens but hadn't reached us. With both of us on line and a dodgy ISDN connection we spent a fortune on local phone calls to the internet. We have checked regularly on the web whether our number is allowed to connect, but always the answer has been to wait.
Suddenly this evening we got a phone call from the phone company, wanting to tell us about the joys of DSL. I cut her short: just tell us how much and when. Now it seems we are signed up and the kit will come in 3 days. Of course this is Greece, so there will be problems.
However J has just got DSL too, and so we can borrow her husband to help set it up.
And TV man thinks he might try to get Dutch TV again for us.
Tried to get the wireless card working again on my laptop, but no hardware support in Greece. Long pointless phone calls to Belgium and then probably it will have to go to France for repair for 10 days. We decided that it could wait till August as it might clash with trips to Kosovo in June.
But now important to sort it out. Will try again with wireless USB lurking somewhere.
