Warmer today, with black clouds, the threat of rain and spotty internet. But the technical gurus who know about these things will say that wind, rain and black clouds have no effect upon the speed of an internet connection. Then, quite smugly they will add, it's more likely a fault at our end of the telephone line.
I know there was a time when the connection to the world beyond was managed less instantly. And I understand the blessings of technical progress. But in moments of frustration there is comfort from hoping that one day the internet will belong to an archeological mystery.
