Dongling

Shep is finally in Scotland for good (actually just for a month) and decided to get a mobile internet dongle. Now I'm impressed, not so much with the dongle but more the fact I have found myself 'up' on modern technology. This 'ere dongle involves me and laptop heading in the car for a lay bye with mobile reception.

It reminds me of the good old days when we used to have dial up internet as opposed to broadband. However it does give me contact with the outside world, can catch up with e-mails and check the weather forecast (the radio tends to forget about anyone not in the south of the country)

These postings may well become fewer as I no longer have to try and keep myself awake at night by typing away on the computer - I can go to bed like 'normal' people. I have however stacked some postings up to be published as and when so you might not even notice I'm missing for a while.

I do believe there are great celebrations going on in Tarset - a month of peace and quiet from Shep! Can't blame them can you?

I never thought I'd see the day when you could use the internet quite literally out on the hill - what is life coming to?
