Yes, internet is not always available and despairingly slow. To post this message will sometimes take 2-3 minutes...if it goes!  :D  It's a real thriller!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

We are supposed to have a pretty high bandwidth, but I've tested it and can tell you we are getting ripped off.  I lose connectivity a lot, and this is in our home.  Not much of an option where we live, but we deal with what we got. 

Hope you can continue :painting: soon.  I miss seeing your progress.

Oh Val... I feel for you and with you  :1hug:

Me on the the other hand might have to concider to either move up to the next data package (currently have 8Gig data allocation p/m) and alternatively go for  16Gigs a month (which is quite a bit more price wise)...and I will have more than sufficient data to do all my stuff and watch the videos as I need to...or I might have to opt for another option with a different provider... not quite sure yet what to do at this very moment. :crazy2:

Nolan  :faint: I am sooo  :envy: now... you are so lucky :heeha:.  I am with doBroadband... so did a little investigation tonite... it seems that I can do top-up as needed, but obviously works out more expensive per Gig... so time will tell...  :whistle:

60G ... I'm still stumbling... imagine what I can do with that  :heeha:

Eish!!!  But I can truly image the amount you need for everything you need to do here on PaintBasket.  Mmm, you might have to start your own service provider company soon  :whistle: >:D  :jk:  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Val, thank :flowers: you for the Flowers.  By the by, in my Scots family "It's no bad" was high praise indeed!

I find your tulips very impressive.

Leana:  Here in my small section of the world, the local public library s offer free internet and with a "Thumb drive or SD card, my friends down load stuff and then take it home to their computers.  it would not help with the Videos, but the PDF files could be gotten that way to save bandwidth. Might also be able to upload  pictures  to the form
Regards to all

Brian ... that is fabulous... and what a great idea  O0  Our library here also offers internet... I think it is free...however you are limited to 45 minutes access to the computer.  Not sure if they 'allow' flash-drives etc at our Library (because of virus infection)... worth checking it out though  :thankyou:
