It's the Today programme. It most definitely is NOT a "show". hmm

This is not pedantry. It could make the powers behind Gransnet look slightly daft. And we wouldn't want that, would we?

What are you talking about j08? Was GN featured on the Today programme, or on Radio4 at the time of your posting?
If on the Today programme, what time approx?

The box above the advert to the right. Where they put a little round-up of some of the current threads.

janeainsworth Sat 12-Oct-13 10:08:30

I never look at those thingsgrin
But yes I agree with you j08
Makes the programme sound like a cheap TV show instead of the high-minded, intellectually stimulating programme we know and lovegrin

Although I'm not sure about "love".

JessM Sat 12-Oct-13 10:33:01

if it was me I stand corrected. Must slow down and re-read my posts more carefully so as not to upset other members. blush

janeainsworth Sat 12-Oct-13 11:02:48

Um... are you on the right thread Jess? smile

j08 Sat 12-Oct-13 11:11:16

I seem to be creating confusion - again. hmm

Not down to you Jess - you referred to it as 'The Today programme'.

Anne58 Sat 12-Oct-13 11:20:40

JessM , you definitely did not use the word "show" ! I think HQ might have chosen to use that word, but could be wrong.

<holds hands up in surrender> you are absolutely right. It will be changed <adopts stern tone> Right. Now.

j08 Sat 12-Oct-13 11:42:00

They've changed it! They've changed it!

Cari has changed it now. That is good. smile

Have you had these superpowers all your life jingl? Do they work anywhere? If so, could you please use them to get BT to provide me with a wi-fi connection that doesn't keep crashing ten time each day? grin

j08 Sat 12-Oct-13 12:53:55

Cari probably could! smile

j08 Sat 12-Oct-13 12:54:27

She would put it on Twitter.

CariGransnet (GNHQ) Sat 12-Oct-13 13:05:03

I'm not saying a word. Though this week OH complained to a company (rightly) and got a quick and satisfactory response/apology and said he had learned from the master grin

(Actually granyactivist - we had the same problem and BT sent us a new router and it's never happened since)

janeainsworth Sat 12-Oct-13 14:21:07

We had the same problem solved also with a new free router - by not before BT had insisted it was something to do with the cables getting wet in heavy rain and dug up a large length our road shock
We came back from the States to find a large trench had been excavated across our driveway preventing access in or out of our drive! shock

JessM Sat 12-Oct-13 18:42:23

Oh well I've got a pre-emptive apology in the GN bank then. Useful.

Galen Sat 12-Oct-13 18:56:38

Mine is still crashing!
Have GNHQ got any response to Heathrow enquiry?
I haven't!angry

thatbags Sat 12-Oct-13 18:59:12

Get onto them again, galen.
