Panic and chaos in the Cotwolds



Imagine the scene…house full of guests, BBQ cooking away, sun shining and a football game, England versus Ecuador. All we need is a win…so temperature is rising, flag is hoisted (The Cross of St George of course). The crowd draws into the living room, admiring my new Samsung HD LCD and my new Telewest TV Drive, on which I have watched the World Cup in High Definition. Switch on TV, then TV Drive and…nothing…nada…not a pipsqueak…dead as a dodo…

Time to panic, what does one do in this new media environment, well you log onto the web and get the game on a pc…fat chance mate…the web is alos supplied by Telewest so its down….

Call Telewest, ask them what is going on? “No answer at Telewest, there is a high volume of callers.” Well what do you think dipstick…England is about to clear the Guniea Pig eaters, in their quest to conquer the World Cup and you decide to shut down shop"…of course there will be a high volume of callers, and they won't just call to ask if they can help out but to tell you what they think about you and your company.

It appears that two main frame fibre optic cable had been severed in the Bristol area, leaving 100,000 customers in Bath, Bristol and the Cotswolds without as much as a test picture to look at. Apparently the police are looking for some culprits wearing “I Love Sky HD” t-shirts…

I know what you are thinking, listen to the wireless…Well I am sorry it is like telling someone, go and see a movie where a bloke is hammering his piano, throughout the film as it did not have sound…it won’t do…

Well I was prepared having a couple of Freeview boxes attached to some other tellies, so now we watched it in the kitchen on my 21” analogue Samsung…It taught me that I should run a cable from the loft down in the living room as the big screen has a Freeview decoder built in, we cannot operate on one system alone…and the score…well you know but it is so nice to say that Beckham delivered so the Guinea Pig eaters had to go home flatten some Guinea Pigs and we are taking on the Sardine Eaters…
