Our ADSL connection developed a fault at 01.42 am on Saturday morning and neither curiouswombat nor I can access the Internet. The engineers don't work weekends and so we've been cut off from the civilised world since then. CW will have to miss her regular Sunday posting of pictures and the next chapter of 'Brotherhood', which is ready and beta-read, can't be posted either. I'm posting this from a dismal café with bad food but free Wi-fi. Hopefully the engineers will restore our access tomorrow.
