After a year my dad finally got round to ripping up the floor boards to lay the phone line under them.
For the last year my internet access has come vier a 30M extension cable running from one side of the house to the other.
The phone link in my room only went from my PC to the door and stopped under the floor boards and has been coiled there for well over a year now.
Now it goes all they way and I can final wave bye bye to tripping on the extension in the middle of the night :)
Posting should return to normal soon.
