News from home

I had a few interesting news from home in Greece today.

First, I spoke with an older friend of ours that I haven’t seen or spoken for about 10 years now. It was nice hearing her voice again.

Then, my brother is working night and day to get his new house ready with his wife (it’s on the second floor of my parent’s house). He estimates that the apartment will be… habitable in a week’s time. Can’t wait to see them move to their own private space, where my mother won’t have easy access to. ;-)

My bro also told me that DSL is now available in our hometown. Before last week, 56k dialup was the only solution for internet access. I told him to be careful and buy the Ethernet version of the OTE modem and not the USB one, as the USB ones have problems with alternative OSes and WiFi routers.

Lastly, my mother was telling me that my niece had her cellphone stolen while she was in a caffeteria. These things didn’t happen when I was living there. Louros Preveza is a small place where everyone knows everyone. My friends and I had never something stolen from us. But it seems it has become a bit too large when such terrible things are starting to happen.

God, I write too much on this blog… I need to clean up the house… my brother-in-law is visiting us from France tomorrow!

lol ok dsl is not that new, we have dsl access more than 2 years but it costs too much even low speed.
Fortunately, winter this year they are going to double dsl connections for free. xD I hope isp’s do the same >

This is the admin speaking...

You do, at the big cities! Preveza’s surrounding towns didn’t.
