As I mentioned the other day, we've just had our bathroom done. It was, I must confess, something we'd put off for some time. That and the kitchen too. Both really needed doing when we moved in back in 2004, however we didn't have the money at the time and over the months and years we just got too used to the way everything was. Eventually I put my foot down and decided that we just had to get at least one - and preferably both - done. I decided on the bathroom as technically it should be a simpler project (well one where there was less for us to decide�)

Launched in 1999 as freebeeb.net, and later renamed beeb.net, BBC Worldwide's ISP slowly and quietly kept chugging along. By 2001 it had entered profitability with 140,000 users. And it's been around ever since. But this year will be its last - on the 30 June 2008, Beeb will close down and be no more.
Now I must say I do like the visual look and feel of the new BBC homepage, but it gives me yet again, another infuriating problem. It's the browser window size. I just don't want my browser window set that wide.
Here's one for you. Have a think about how many people you know who do not have an internet connection in their house.
