Bloody router…

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

The Harvester has free WiFi, but we’re not getting anything. I’m having to resort to 3G for internet at the moment until we get it online. We’ve tried everything to get it going. Well, I say everything, mainly turning it off and back on again several times.

I’m surprised 3G is working. I hope my provider aren’t still forcing data caps!

We’re debating firing up some of the grills so we can have a proper meal. But then it’d make to much noise. Looking at the menus sure as hell aren’t helping either.

Hello from Birmingham

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

​Hi Henry, Leo and Tom. Thanks for letting me post on here. My name’s Jim, and I’m from Harborne, just a few miles from Birmingham City Centre. Things here are bad.

Really bad.

I’m holed up in The Harvester on the Hagley Road at the moment with a handful of others. I was here when the panic started. My house is only a mile away, so I kept thinking I’ll go when everyone else had left.

​That was the plan anyway. Outside, everywhere is just road blocked from abandoned cars and road wrecks from collisions There’s no chance I can drive back home. I’m just glad I had my smart phone on me.

​We’ve barricaded the doors with what we could, mainly heavy wooden tables and chairs. It seems to have done the trick for now, but I honestly don’t know how long it will hold up against all those…things….outside. (Are we using the Z word?)

​I know I’ll have to make a move sooner or later. My house is only a 40 minute walk away. It’s just so tempting to go for it.
