We have been unceremoniously kicked from the Information Super highway to the Information Footpath. As news tells it our ISP was illegally giving cable internet connections using a leased line from BSNL, their offices were raided by CBI yesterday and all the equipment seized.
So we are back to using dial-up and very high telephone bills… thankfully though the dial-up is very stable and gives a decent 56kbps. Hopefully there will be some alternative soon.
In other news the book “Building Custom PHP Extensions” arrived from Amazon. Yeah I know it is available in electronic format for free BUT I wanted a dead tree version which I can read to the point where I know everything even without looking at it I somehow cannot do that with texts on CRT….
