You get what you pay for, if you buy a telephone line then that is what you get. If you need resilience then you install a system with an independent backup connection, perhaps a small mobile phone module built into the unit.

Many commercial systems specify two independent circuits that never come near each other even when they enter the user’s premises. But it costs a lot more.

    It seems very likely, a friend of mine moved out of Scotland within the last couple of years because of the SNP and possibility of independence. Many more would probably do so also but cannot afford it so quite likely it is also putting people off coming here to live and work.

    That report on pay levels of news reporters sounded very dubious from the few details I saw. I was not convinced they were comparing like with like.

    I don’t have a lot of faith in Sturgeon’s claims of a Scottish independence ‘listening exercise’. I suspect that it is going to be very selective ‘listening’ to just the party faithful.

    I am remember complaining years ago about the number of cars that I saw off the road with nothing to indicate whether they had been there for days or recently happened and someone possibly inside (of course with the Police Service of Scotland both could be the case).

    Elsewhere it was normal to see a ‘POLICE AWARE’ sticker on the car. At least now it is more common to see some police incident tape or a cone but after the Police Service of Scotland blunder I might have expected them to have a policy of clearly marking accidents that had been dealt with.

    Yes that is the usual advice.

    You can use Recall on the phone to get dial tone back but few people are familiar with that.

    BT are said have shortened the time-out period but I don’t think other companies have.
