Internet Service Provider
I organise the ISP. All we need to get Judith's computer to connect to the internet is 3 items of information:
These are obtained. We elect to use the cheapy Eircom ISDN subscription, free access is not provided for ISDN customers!
"It should work in about a half to one hour's time," the Eircom sales person said optimistically.
It actually took an hour and a half and a phone call to ask what was happening!
Judith reminded me we were in Ireland. "Time runs slow! Don't try to think that you're in England."
Now we have a 64k connection!
I test it with a site in the States - 59.1 kbps. Not bad.
We organise furniture in the study and sitting room. I repair a bookcase - going over the top with wood planes and lots of glue. Judith continues with her boxes.
Judith now has a "Whirly Gig" clothes drier. 'Guess who' says he will concrete in the post hole! Well she is cooking dinner.
Shopping at the local town of Clonakilty is easy. There's a supermarket on the N71 bypass.
