Please be patient with our postings here in Nepal, we are experiencing some difficulty uploading due to the sheer lack of bandwidth. For you semi-techies out there – especially those of you who have come to expect a decent internet connection at home – think of us here in Nepal where the fastest connection in town yesterday was 96kbps – wow!
It’s bonkers – there are two cafes, both say that the internet is fastest at 7am and 7pm – supposedly 128kbps but it varies considerably – but we know from experience that the town’s electricity goes off a 7pm most nights – that’s why it’s so fast – nobody is using the damn thing!
We have made some changes to the way we upload posts, previously we used Windows Live Writer and, when uploaded, provided users with the ability to expand the pictures. Like all Microsoft products, it has let us down badly (if you’re reading Bill or Bob or whoever the new guy is) and we’ve now switched to a programme called blogjet which does not provide a function to expand the photos when clicked.
FEEDBACK REQUIRED: Is this a real problem for you guys – do you expand the pictures or are you just happy to receive posts? I can manage with WLR, but it’s a pain in the ass uploading, it takes forever and mostly crashes or times out!
Finally, just a quick thank you again to all of you who have been commenting and e-mailing – we love receiving them – keep them coming. I’m sure you understand, we cannot reply to each comment, we’d be on the internet all day!
