OH, THE HOKEY POKEY
Just got back from a walk to Jounieh.
If you see someone walking the streets of Lebanon at four in the morning just assume that they have a dial-up so-called internet connection and have nothing else to do because their connection is practically non-existent at that time (or at any other time for that matter).
I recommend Lebanese dial-up for any parent who doesn’t want their children spending too much time on the internet.
I’ve given up calling the ISP’s so-called consumer helpline (AKA twenty four hour consumer excuse line) to complain because that just makes it worse.
They’ll never admit that there’s a problem but will make all sorts of excuses and distract you with all sorts of tasks – restart your computer, check the connection socket, check the firewall… stand on your head, do the twist, do the Lambeth Walk (every evening, every day), put your left foot in and shake it all about, left foot on green ,right hand on red.
It’s like playing Twister – you end up all over the place.
