It doesn't get much better

Me & Nina's film Bata-ville has been accepted for the Edinburgh Film Festival AND broadband has arrived at my mountain top!
A few minutes fiddling with a router and I was almost disappointed to find myself wireless too - such ease. I recall my first ever home dial-up in 1994 I think it was - lines and lines of code I had to type in to a Mac Classic, invariably followed by failure, mysterious error messages, expensive help phonecalls (though at least you were only one of 11 other subscribers) and that endless endless furry modem trill. Actually, I might rather miss that now. Something about the audible frailty is so articulate of the miracle of the Web, especially so when you live as literally remotely as I do.
