My modem gave up the ghost on Monday/Tuesday night. Worked one night and the next morning caput! Didn't realise how much I rely on the net, I was having real withdrawal symptoms. I must be an addict!
Anyway after two telephone calls to Virgin Media they have sent me a new modem and all is well, I can get my daily fix again. Deep breath. I was very surprised when the modem arrived this morning, it is tiny! My last one was a monster in comparison.
