a really lovely chap from talk talk came to tell me all about their wonderful service, which, had i taken him up on it, would have resulted in upheaval of my currently stable established setup. it's these delightful people one has to resist. there may be a few irritating glitches in the service plus.net offers, but, compared with all the other providers, they do seem to keep on an even keel for most of us. furthermore, i have always found them unfailingly polite and their emails tend to be courteous. that'll do me.
