Why I Like Microsoft October 8, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in life, Marseille.
So, last Friday Paula went to Orange to order Internet. They said 10 days at most. Having heard the same thing from Free we thought “yeah, right.” Boy were we wrong – Internet arrived today at about 10am! It took them 4 days, two of them weekend days! Holy cow! That is why a monopoly is so good! 🙂
Of course, into every silver lining there must be a cloud or two: they port-block! So far I’ve only stumbled one one: my email program doesn’t correctly connect up. I’ve spent no time investigating where this port-blocking occurs yet so perhaps there is a way to turn it off (doubtful). Darn monopolies thinking they know better than I do!
At any rate, it is good to be back!
