So yesterday the site disappeared for about 2 hours, it was all the leased line providers fault, still at least it came back, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much, it also meant I got my notebook mobile connection working. I guess I have to admit I have one of those evil mobiles in fact I actually average well over an hour a day in calls on it. Still the solution to hixie’s problem is to simply get a phone, and disable the microphone on it, then you can’t talk, but can use the modem - the one I’ve got like this is only GSM modem though, not GPRS.
