G.O.T. An Announcement


It appears that I am being dicked around by somebody who would prefer that I didn't have any access to the internet at the moment. Fortunately I have now managed to rig up a temporary connection to Blogger, using 2 rusty old baked bean cans and a rather long length of piano wire just so that I can bring you this news.

I don't know what the fuck is going on but it's either BT or my ISP, both of whom say everything is fine, or it's something a little more sinister. Not that I'm paranoid.

Am I?

Phone lines have been red hot to the call centres, you know the ones, and all they are doing is fucking me around from pillar to post and back again. 

In the meantime though I'm one stroke short of being fucked although  thanks to a little bit of G.O.T. resolve I can now pick up emails and comments.

If anyone out there knows how I can try and tackle this then I would be grateful for your advice, as long as it doesn't involve a large rusty inanimate object and my arse!

Hope to be back soon but fuck knows when.

Oh fuckin hell your with BT. I don't envy you trying to get someone who knows what the fuck they are doing in that company.

virgin media are very good, but that's even more fucking around!

I wondered where you were! Glad you're back.

Try Zen. I've used them for over a decade and have not had a single second's downtime. Excellent, efficient service.

In the US, several people in both the West and East Coast areas whom I'm aware of were experiencing similar problems yesterday, nothing but dropped connections, "technical errors" and "glitches" galore - on a lot of sites and blogs, not just one or two.

Maybe CIA/KGB/FBI/DHS/MI5 were installing their new secret filtering/cenosring system yesterday and testing it out.

Internet Explorer says it can not open the website even though you can see the site before they try to block it.I just kept going back one page - they seem to give up after 3 attempts to block.So much for freedom of speech in this cunting Stalinist dystopia - if this isn't attempted censorship I'll be very fucking surprised!!

Shit! I wondered where you had disappeared to. I hope it all gets fixed soon.

G.O.T. said...

Thank you all.

Hopefully normal service will be resumed soon although I doubt whether the One Eyed Twat will quite see it that way.

I get that with a couple of other blogs but not this one.
Welcome back Grumpy, don't let the bastards get you down.
