This post comes to you courtesy of the bathroom in my hotel room. In Belgrade there were days when I could only connect to the wireless by putting my laptop on the fridge. Here in Nicosia (or Lefkosia as we seem to call it this side of the Green Line) the internet and wireless work fine in the morning on my desk in the middle of the room, but by the evening to get a good signal, I have to retreat to my bathroom which has the advantage of a basin set in a worktop which makes a fine substitute desk. Please explain why, some techie reading this.
I also get an ear on the next door's conversation through the ventilation grille, but since it is in Turkish, I am not really entertained.
While we are on technical subjects could someone explain why an optical mouse won't work on a cream stone worktop? I can understand why it doesn't work on glass, but stone?
More random facts about life in North Cyprus:
like the rest of Cyprus they have those UK 3 pin plugs, which is really inconvenient for us continental types (even at home I use an adapter and a continental extension lead so I don't forget and leave an essential bit behind);
please don't write about Cyprus, or your blog will be blocked like Megan Case. Trying to read her blog I got this big notice:
Bu siteye erişim mahkeme kararıyla engellenmiştir.
T.C. Fatih 2.Asliye Hukuk Mahkemesi 2007/195 Nolu Kararı gereği bu siteye erişim engellenmiştir.
Access to this site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/195 of T.C. Fatih 2.Civil Court of First Instance.
Somehow I don't think it would be worth appealing, though it is kind of them to quote that it is only the Court of First Instance.
