Our IT bloke, in his free time it must be said, has rigged up cables to the router on the satellite dish, and some of us have access to the internet at home for the first time in a couple of weeks. It's said to be a temporary measure, it looks a bit crap, the cable comes in through the window so I'm prey to mosquitoes at night... But I'm not complaining.
I've got a lot a film developed and unscanned because the Mustek Bearpaw 2400 Scanner I bought (cheaply) in Blighty won't run on Vista. There will be a way round this (the idea I linked to the other day doesn't work). But it's going to take an evening of googling. I can do that now.
