1). A total of just under 12 hours I had to spend talking, mainly to Indian call centres after somebody phoned BT to say they were moving but their move request was attached to my account and I lost everything including my sanity at times
2). Being told I must have moved house because their screen says so
3). Being asked when will I be moving then if I haven't moved already.
4). Being told the problems were because I have moved back to my old address.
I haven't %$^!£ moved I've told you a dozens times, that's not me.
5). Being told I don't exist after having my account completely deleted so they can''t help
Worries of identity theft started creeping in.
6). Ending up with 2 accounts which apparently is impossible.
I have had at least 3, perhaps 4 during this fiasco
7). Being told by an account manager that they were looking into all my issues and NOT to phone BT anymore but they will contact me with updates.
8). Getting standard broadband back for 36 hours only for BT to pull the plug because ....
9). I received a bill for the person who had moved.
10). Being told that I cannot have broadband until I pay as I am a bad debt.
11). Getting Broadband back again but having to wait until a new order for infinity was issued and an engineer to call the following week
... to do what !!!
12. Getting Infinity back at 10:00 on Wednesday but for it to stop again on the stroke of midnight.
and 13). Lucky for some, I got my broadband back on Thursday night.
That's enough, I think. though there's more, an awful lot more, but back to the nature.
During all this it has not stopped me trying to see 1000 species a 1km square around Waldridge Fell.
I reached the 400 mark on 26th May with a Hoverfly Cheilosia bergenstammi, a widespread though rather localised species, this one preferring Ragwort.
Since then it's been hectic, but the moth trap only really started producing about a week ago.Here's a a listing and a couple of pictures since the last posting.
