A couple of week ago I was asked to be Kates nephews ( Conor ) god father, I gladly accepted this responsibility. The other day the baptism happened and these photos were taken.
When I go any where significant, I like to take my camera. Going down to my mums for my nieces Christening was going to be no exception. unfortunately as I was in the Christening I was going to be unable to grab any photos of the event, but I did get a load of photos of the train journey to and from there.
A while back now, my sister asked Kate and myself to be god parents to my niece, we gladly accepted. Here are some of the photos from that day.
As you already know I have had the BT engineer out, who cant find anything wrong any where with my line equiptment or other wise. He has reported back to AOL and I received a call from a second level tech support agent today who has given me the really wonderful news! Some news that I have beeb after for a very long time!
AOL are letting me cancel my contract with them on the grounds that they cannot provide a good enough service to me. The reason their service is not a good service for me, is the fact that they have way too many customers going through their leased hardware at the exchange to which I am currently using. There litterly isnt enough bandwidth for all of us!
I have been looking to switch to BE which so far sounds like a dream, they estimate that my line can reach 12.5MBps down and a minimum of 1.3MBps up which is damn good. There is a contract though, but its no where nearly as long as AOL at just 12 months long, or there is a 3 month contract, but you need to pay a £24 connection fee which is kind of annoying, especially when money is a bit crap at the moment. I might just go ahead and get the 3 month contract and pay the connection fee, at least that way, if i dont get on with BE then I am more than free to leave after the 3 months is up.
I have recently got right into politics at the moment, and im learning all about it as I go along. I met up with Phryn Dickens and Martin Tod who is the local Liberal Democrat who is hoping to be voted in, in the general election. I shall be giving him my vote as he seems to be the best candidate for the job. I asked to meet up with the Conservative guy Steve Brine and who actually said, that he would pop round my house and we could talk about the whats going on and I could ask him my questions, but in the end he never came round and had that all important chat with me. His loss though!
I have decided after a short little debate with myself about who im going to be voting for this year, and my loyalty lies with Martin Tod – Liberal Democrat. He gets my vote because hes very active in the community, he goes to one of the social gatherings I go to called Winchester Web Scene. He is also a big supporter of completely re-writing the Digital Economy Act 2010 which is a complete waste of time, money, resources and paper. He also believes that violent video games shouldnt be banned because it should be down to the individual user / parent ( if the user is under age ) wether they play the game or not!
I went to Katies Niece and Nephews christening yesterday too. It was nice. The ceremony took place in St Peters Church in Winchester.and lasted around 30 – 40 minutes or so. Afterwards we proceeded to the Royal Oak pub where a room was rented out which had a DJ.
We dressed the kids up aswell. Check it out, they look very nice, although Chloe looks like she is stoned!
