As a kind of Christmas treat I now have fast internet delivered wirelessly to all parts of the house.
At present I’m sitting here blogging; simultaneously enjoying a glass of wine while we watch our videoed copy of the last episode of Angels in America. And the moment seems very civilised. There’s something quite transforming in the way you use the internet when you can wander over to the iBook, lift the lid, and start surfing.
And there is one other benefit. Before I had to sit in the other room tethered to the phone socket for dialup internet, totally ignoring Becky for hours on end in the evenings. Now, I can sit in the lounge with her, totally ignoring her for hours on end. That must count for an improvement of sorts.
