Having returned home I am back to intermittent access to the internet, until BT connect my landline and broadband - due during the morning of 12th November.
In the interim posting will be light, as to obtain a signal involves a 5 mile drive into Witney. I will endeavour to post as often as I can but would ask readers to bear with me. Likewise, my apologies to those commenting for the lack of any response, on my part, to their comments.
Update: Problem solved have bought a temporary access pass from BT Openzone!
