I got lost.
Temporarily, Temporally and "Internetally".
All of a suddenly-like I went offline. A swift "dash down the lobby" (Hall to you posh folk, and Furriners). This revealed an evil red glow in the eye of the Router. I tried the time-honoured "Off-and-on-again". NO JOY!
A call resulted in an appointment with "The Man" who, apparently, isn't expected to work weekends - OR - had a full Calendar.
In consequence a slot was booked either a.m. or p.m. Tue or Wed.
As good luck would have it, I ended up with a Tue a.m slot = 08:00-12:00 which it wasn't, he rolled up at about 12:20. All they way from Why-AYE-Hinny Land. Nice lad too.
Did you know there were two numbers involved?
It seems there's a "number" for the Router, which differs from the phone number. As near as layman's terminology will do. He tested, and declared both, hale and hearty - tested the Router and didn't!
"If you phone before 13:00 you'll get next day delivery, give me time to post my report, I'll give you a TOOT; give it 5-10 mins for it to get through, then phone them."
I did, at about 12:45-12:50. At 13: 25 they answered. However, the nice lass at the other end said she'd try to get next day delivery - She MANAGED.
While I was offline I shot the daily Blip - BUT - by the time I got back online today, I'd lost track of what I'd shot when - SO - there'll be a repeat of a similar shot in a few days time. This doesn't really give a true pictured of the degree of Rain-Shadow this area is subject to. If it wasn't for the temperatures I could grow Cacti in this area it's that arid.
