Back again, after a long (semi-enforced) absence. Just to explain, I decided before Christmas to give up my old DBC line and laptop - a small saving for the council there which will undoubtedly make my Cabinet colleague Cllr. McEwan happy, but which will also allow me to use the internet for campaigning purposes.
Characteristically, it's taken BT weeks to get a broadband line up-and-running, but we've made it at last. By the weekend, I should have pictures and videos running smoothly again.
