We Apologise for the Technical Difficulties

Our hotel is really beautiful. We scored an executive suite on the executive floor – which gave us all sorts of extras including free drinks (beer, wine, juice) in the bar from 6.30am – 11pm and free spirits from 6-7pm. We also get to use the spa/gym, the pool and the lounge free of charge. None of which we have actually had anytime to enjoy or even look like getting close to.  We also get free broadband in our room. 😀

It appears though, that our ancient dinosaur laptop doesn’t have a network port. It does have a wireless PCMCIA card which works perfectly well with our wireless broadband at home, but the system here first has to register your computer the old fashioned way by plugging the cable in. So no internet in our room.  😦 We have still been able to get all the photos off the camera etc, but getting them here onto the free computer in the lounge is a bit messy, so my posts have been a bit slack.

We will be returning to normal transmission shortly, in the meantime, please enjoy this pretty test pattern.

I’m networked!!

Todays entry:
Thanks to the marvels of technology, Ebay, a husband who is on holidays and a lot of luck, I now am the proud owner of a networked laptop. It took several attempts to get the network card working and neither of us is sure how it happened, but it suddenly started working when previous attempts had failed. Now I can IM my husband and tell him tea’s ready!!
