Outage

Because of an ongoing1 split between two networks: that of my ISP and the one belonging to my server hosts, I can only send messages out of and receive them into my main email account by extremely convoluted means today. Apologies to anyone trying to reach me. I wanted to use “current” rather than the […]

Yet Another Apology

As I’ve mentioned before, I won’t have Net access from home until the end of November and neither will I have a landline. I am now down to 20 minutes of talk time with Orange and they won’t let me upgrade (even temporarily) until the 19th. According to the advertised tariff, every minute I’m on […]

Plugged In Again

Reader, I sent an email this morning, from my email account. If you have been corresponding with me via Gmail recently you can now revert to the counsell.com address. Not only that, but UKSolutions came back up again yesterday after disappearing some time in the morning. Being able to send email from your email account, […]

Annoying

Cut Off

Sorry, folks. I’ve not had Internet access from home for most of the weekend so I have some catching up to do. I’ve published a couple of posts I didn’t get to release on Saturday (under 07Aug04 below).

Email Glitches

I'm having problems sending out email from my main email account. Apologies if any of you are not getting messages from me or getting multiple copies of the same message from multiple sources. NTL claims to be working on the problem.
