Today was spent mostly getting my Dad’s computer kit upgraded with the hand-me-downs from my machines at home (motherboard, Athlon XP 1800+, nVidia GeForce 4 Ti4200 graphics card, memory) and my old ADSL kit (modem & wireless router) ready for when he gets broadband. The Mullion exchange goes live with ADSL on the 20th (Wednesday) but stupidly BT won’t take pre-orders so they can’t install the first batch of lines with the hardware at the same time.

It also looks as though there’s a 2 week wait for Tiscali to get its finger out form the time of ordering as well, so I’ll not be able to help my Dad set things up.
