Strangely enough I received a message from my ISP late this afternoon that my broadband connection was now active (today is a public holiday in Australia).
So much for it taking around 5 business days!
But hey... I'm not complaining.
So now I'm finally back to normal.
To test my new broadband connection I cranked up Google Earth and calculated the distance I travelled on Saturday - it ended up being 27km, which I was a little surprised at considering I was sooo buggered after it and yet I used to ride 50km 3-4 times a week!!).
Anyhoo I'm off to put this super fast connection through its paces.
