Fast enough here but I only have a 1 Meg connection.

I wish BT would get moving and update the rubbish bits of wire they have around here.

OTOH my daughter just moved to Teeside and they have 0.6Mb :shock: (Village near Yarm)

Right im back again, made the BIG mistake of buying THE rustiest Beetle ever, so got shut of that and bought a ZX on a whim, which I love, also hoping to get my Hands on a GS too.

Xantia STILL continues to run terribly (well it is a Xantia after all).

Piccies to follow sometime.
