Well, I thought I felt better on Tuesday evening but as soon as I tried to get to sleep I started feeling feverish, yo-yoing between hot and cold and on several occasions thinking that morning had come although it was still only 3 in the morning (like some kind of mini Groundhog Day loop). Now, because I’m technically still on a temporary contract where I work, if I had phoned in and taken a sick day off of work I would have been put in for an investigation as I’ve already taken three sickies the last six months, so I dragged myself out of bed, got to work, sat there shivering for a couple of hours before I decided ‘sod it’ and told my manager I was to ill to stay. Spent the rest of the day tucked up in bed recovering and catching up on much needed sleep. Anyway, I feel right as rain now.
Also, I just heard the news today that BT is upgrading all BT Yahoo! and BT Business Broadband accounts to 2 meg. There was a briefing about the BT Yahoo change a few days back but I don’t read those, and the Business division change was just made public today. Even though BT provide a really shit service, hopefully this will force other providers to start providing the same minimum speed. ATM the top BT Wholesale based account speed is 2 meg, but as cable providers and alternative ADSL wholesale providers are starting to supply 4 and 8 meg downstream connections this should force them to wise up and up their packages as well. Things are beginning to look good for broadband in the UK! Whee!
