Testing, testing...1, 2, 3....is this thing on?

20070402_netkey This will be one of the dullest, but most significant, posts published on 'A lemon tree of our own', because, for the first time since we moved in nearly a year ago, I'm actually posting directly from our home in Chania.

You might recall that just before Claire left for Salzburg, after a long struggle, OTE unexpectedly pitched up and finally put a phone line in the house. We'd been given to understand, though, that it would be a line that wouldn't support internet usage.

And we are not exactly on wireless broadband yet - this is dial-up with speeds pushing all of 31Kbps, and I can't move the laptop more than 2 feet away from the phone socket.

Still, thanks to a pre-paid internet access card from FORTHnet which I bought last year in preparation for the first day we were due to have a telephone installed, we are no longer in splendid isolation.
