John Hughes, Jr. (February 18, 1950 – August 6, 2009)
I post...they croak...what manner of hell hath i wrought?
the critically acclaimed director of National Lampoon's Vacation; Ferris Bueller's Day Off; Weird Science; The Breakfast Club; Some Kind of Wonderful; Sixteen Candles; Pretty in Pink; Planes, Trains and Automobiles; Uncle Buck; Home Alone and its sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. He was the teen movie director of a generation and in my humble opinion a genius of comedic timing and humour.
poor guy, he will be missed.

Ok so here we are again...
...interwebs enabled....er.....kinda,you see unbeknown to me BT requires a 10 day "line test" and "run up" before switching on my fancy new 8 mb/s broadband here at the new house.
this is what im currently getting (on a good day off peak)
this....is apparently what im supposed to be using for Internet access until my 10 day fuckabout is finished. Yes your reading that correctly thats 0.13mb/s download speed thats 0.43 mb/s SLOWER than dial up internet.
As im sure your aware...this is not going to cut the mustard so today at some stage (as this is day 10) im going to have to have a word with the fine chaps at BT tech support to try and get this resolved.
stay tuned for there answer as soon as i manage to get one.
