Thank you @Oxonian 

pm with your answers received

I hope you have a good Bank Hol

 

As to the ongoing saga with my internet connection...

Although I thought there was a slight improvement a couple of weeks ago, that was short-lived with the problem returning a few days later.

The issue now is I sometime get service during the day [which I wasn`t before] but then will suddenly drop out. I then try relaunching connection - sometime it works [for a few minutes and then drops out] or no service.

So all in all it`s now a bit of a lottery when I can get on internet, which is why I post WRQ/quizzes and answers at clack of dawn, and reply to posts as and when I can get service.

Yes thank you @Mi-Amigo, a good BH albeit not doing too much ! 

 

Sorry to hear of you ongoing internet woes ; reminds me of short wave radio in the 1960s when the signal would come and go of its own accord. 👍

Funny you should say that @pgn 

Internet connection is worse/drops out when it`s raining; better, but unreliable, when it`s sunny.

My local mast is like Rishi - needs an umbrella 😂 .
