serious

The phone's out again.

I can't get at the connections at the moment, so it'll stay out for a while. Conceivably until this evening.

Incidentally, can I point out that even at the best of times leaving a message on the BT answer thing is a very bad way to get through to me? I don't pick up the phone often, so there's no guarantee I'll get it soon, or even necessarily at all.
Will you be making an appearence at portie tonight?

I am headin down just before 7 if you fancy a lift. Should be home just after 6.

Hopefully catch up soon.
