In case anyone's missed our US shipmate Figtree, he just told me he's having some trouble with his WiFi Internet connection.
Actually I reckon he's gone chicken cos he still hasn't Sea Trialled his Brooklyn tug yet 😉😁 'spect he'll be back in full swing soon.
Cheers All, Doug 😎

On a slightly different note Doug, what is that you are eating?
I think it's either a brandy snap full of cream or a bratwurst in a roll?

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure?

Hi, All!

I'm doing good! I have a slight cold!
I think I gave it to the computer though!😜
My connection has been in and out for the past 24 hrs!
I'm sure I'll get it sorted out!

Cheers, Ed

Hi Steve,
Right the second time👍
It's half of a 1metre Semel-bratwurst (Giant Bavarian Hotdog)!
My GF Gisela is battling with the other half😉
Pic was taken some years ago at a Santana concert, or was it The Eagles!?, in the Munich Olympia Halle. Washed down with a pint of excellent Augustiner Helles. 😋😋 Concert weren't bad either (whoever it was😉)
Grüß, Doug 😎
PS Haven't seen Brandy Snaps for years - you've reawakened the withdrawal symptoms 🤔 Snap Cross parcels please to ...... Munich!😁

Hi Doug,

I'm thinking of connecting a six foot.
Yagi antenna to my computer!😜

I have to keep on saying!
Oh connection gaud "let there be a connection"......😁

Hi Ed,
Make it a 12 foot Log Periodic then you can cover a wider frequency range and sharpen the beam and antenna gain at the same time😉😁
Moral; don't trade antenna jokes with a COMMS engineer 😁😁
Sorry Ed, couldn't resist that, but can appreciate your annoyance with the WiFi. I got so fed up with WLAN drop outs I simply bought a router with more ports and hardwired all my LAN gear. I've also separated my Internet and HD TV feeds on separate systems so that I can't lose everything if one system goes down - power cuts excepted😲
Haven't got around to rigging up an auto back-up diesel genny yet😉
Since then no snags - fingers tightly crossed!
BTW: if the distributor in your block is a communal system have a moan to the house / facility management or whatever you call it over there.
Also check around if your neighbours are having similar problems.
Cheers, Doug 😎
