Broadband

Step 1 : Re-boot set top box (or cable modem)
Step 2 : Allow to start
Step 3 : Kick myself for not trying this before

Now on 4MB cable broadband, and wondering why I didn't think to try a re-boot of the cable box before this, after all re-boot to fix it should have been the first thing a techie thought of. How long could I have had 4MB? at the most a month, depends when they upgraded.

And yes, it is a hellufa lot faster, OpenOffice.org 2.0.3 (latest version) a 120MB file, downloaded at over 440KB/s in under 5 minutes.
