The Ghost has been unable to post.... since lightning struck our internet connection last week in a storm at the tail end of the North London Tornado (!).
As we speak, a crack team of highly-trained engineers are working round the clock to resolve the problem/a few muppets from BT are thinking about getting round to it (delete as applicable).
Meanwhile this comes commando-like from 'the field' (well, a public library PC).
Morale is not good. No music downloads, no email, no blogging. Isolation.
We hope normal service will be resumed soon, but we're not counting on it.
Wishing you Merry Christmas now, just in case....
