Well now, the deal is that if France Telecom don’t repair the line within 48 hours of them receiving the report of failure then they have to start paying compensation. Guess what – today about 47 hours after we reported the cable down they have made a temporary repair – 🙂 We know it is only temporary because it actually involves string! I kid you not. Anyway the main thing is that for the moment we are connected to the outside world and so I can catch up and post the next chapter. Who knows how long this will last.
