    I haven't yet told them that I only fly Business Class to NY, yet, either.

    I wonder how high they will go

    If the extra 20% doesn't work, maybe that will

    There's ambition

    Depends where it started and we haven't discussed the actual figure yet.

    I have just been told the project has limitless funds.
    The guy who is engaging me knows me very well and what I have to offer, so I'm sure the offer won't be derisory.

    The "BA" has finally got the concept that you cannot aggregate data that has missing rows and orphans in different hierarchical levels.
    Then get the results to be fully additive

    Morning all Nice day out. The Dog (tw) enjoyed her walk earlier.
    I've just been on an anline chat with BT. My promised 44Mb broadband hasn't been above 4 for the last 2 days.
    He sends me a link to do a broadband test, but needs to be plugged in to the router (which is in a different room). I take my laptop in, find another network cable and run the test. 51Mb.
    I go to the first router on the chain of them around the house. 51Mb
    I go to the next one (in the office) now giving me 51Mb.

    I tell him that it's 51Mb, but that it definitely was 4Mb earlier.
    He says "yes, I refreshed your line while you were setting up the computer"

    :grr but at least it's working now!

    394M at the moment - only from the router or the garage - rest of the house is 200 due to wifi limits...

    When I first moved here 8 years ago, our house was one of only 4 to have "broadband". We got a whole 256k on a good day. Remarkable how much you can do with that speed if you're very careful.
    When the area moved to Infinity, we got up to 1Mb on normal broadband, then it jumped to 14Mb on Infinity. This then fell back as more people in the area came on board and was back down to about 5Mb.
    BT switched cabinets recently and we were promised 38Mb.
    Now we've got 51Mb. That means The Dog (tw) and The Chickens (tf) can now have their web access back. If The Wife (tm) behaves herself, I might release the throttle on her connection.

    I found out this morning that I'd eaten the last of the crisps though
