BT phone home

So it seems that BT is now promising, but firmly and sweetly promising, that I will have phone and internet service tomorrow. With the proviso of course that sve što su u stanju da brkaju najverovatnije i hoće, majke im kraljevske. But when that milestone is reached it is entirely possible that this blog may receive regular updates once more.

In the meantime, how does a poor boy remain in touch with the world? It is not easy, but one way is by sitting in my office, where today I received a quick lesson in the comparative culinary thrills of London and New York from a well-versed student. Another is by leaving to get a sandwich from the student takeout place, where another student introduced me to the works of his very charming heavy metal band.

London is sounding more East Bloc than the REAL East Bloc!

Naw, in the East bloc you could just bribe someone or find someone in the department where your cousin works. Here you cant do anything.

I'm amazed you chose BT - rightly trashed in the consumer sections most British newspapers on a pretty regular basis. There are plenty of other phone companies and many of BT's competitors are just fine. Cut all this London-is-worse-than-Balkans stuff. You just made a bad choice.

Hey Anonymous, hard to disagree with your last sentence there.
