Goodbye BT

June 13, 2012 at 12:00 pm (internet, odds) (, , , )

Well, BT have been quite annoying recently – we had an unexpected large phone bill so rang them to pay it off, so as not to up our monthly payments … then it happened again during the next billing period too.  The cause of the exception has hopefully been sorted now, but I’m still annoyed that BT didn’t do anything proactive to help.  I’ve found out that I could have created some alerts against excessive usage, but at no point has anyone in their support told me that – I had to find it out myself!

Anyway, from today we are now trying PlusNet for phone.  We’ve been with them for ages for Internet and their customer support has always been excellent for that – so we’ll see how we go.

If you want to try them too, feel free to use my referral link below!

Modern Day Fossils

July 26, 2009 at 7:48 pm (art, interesting) (, , , , , , )

This is an interesting idea, from artist Christopher Locke – create a false fossil, but using items of (fairly) modern technology – see the website here.  They look really good!  See this picture of the ‘fossil’ of a PlayStation games controller for an example.  I also liked the walkman and rotary (bakalite) telephone.

For an interesting twist, the artist has added latinesque descriptions to them too (I’m now off to see if Google can translate from Latin), for example:

Ludustatarium temperosony- Commonly referred to as (“Playstation controller” or “Dual Shock”)

Well, made me smile anyway (as did one of the sites that featured this chaps work – – the official movement to bring ‘sexy’ back to archaeology apparently – see their facebook group here).
