Hello All

FYI

Eutelsat announced the following :

"Please be adviced that communications provided by HOTBIRD 4 at 13 East were
interrupted at 07H:28 CET today due to a disturbance to the attitude control
system during a routine manouevre and the satellite entered the safe sun
pointing mode.
Eutelsat is in the process of reestablishing nominal operations and
communications are expected to be restored around 15:00 CET.
A recorded announcement is available on : +33153983424"

Last time I looked it was still poorly sick - but I can't check now as I am taping a bike race on TV Polonia on E07 because they are/were on HB IV.

Regards

W Hole

PS Spelling in message is not mine - not that I'm any good at spelling, but I noticed one at least in there.

Hello All

Understand it came back around 15h25 CET, but as bike race hasn't finished yet I haven't been able to verify this.

Aha.
That explains why we had no BBC-Prime over coffee this morning to tempt us into turning a perfectly good bookshelf into some useless psychedelic monstrosity (my wife's a big fan of "Change That"...).

LOL !

Until last week's outing of a similar 'lifestyle' programme - I had a perfectly decent looking villa in San Antonio; which, thanks to my friend in england and those BBC Bastards - has now turned into a land-reclaimation site/come bird refuge for indoneasian parrots.

Who's gonna support me for series two - and the cost of the bird-feed for the last series: I either need more birds or more repeat fees ?

Have Fun,

Mark.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I had some 'Friends' write in on behalf of my long suffering wife, and they were in the process of removing the windows and doors of my abode, when I came home last week, to convert it into a psychedelic mud hut for pagan worship.
