      Hahah I love that. Although carrier pigeon is high bandwidth, the latency leaves a lot to be desired, so only good for transferring static information / files, rather than any sort of live communication. Although by the sounds of it, the broadband isn't any good at anything.
      Well with the pigeon the upload speed is faster than the download Like I said things are somewhat better now though need to connect in some areas with line of sight microwave links

      1 centre I worked for had to get some branches cut off a tree to get connected

      Can't believe no one has mentioned this and I don't know what its' called, but the bit of string/ribbon thingy towards the end of a packet of biscuits that makes it SO much easier to open them. I recall it first being used in a dairylea cheese triangle which was absolutely amazing but then on the biscuits! Incredible.

      I remember many a session of our family ridiculing someones inability to open biscuits and then failing themselves before these bad boys came along.

      Edit: just mentioned to my children and can't fathom how a pack of biscuits would have been before. I've told them not to worry about it, just another example of how their snowflake lives are so much better as a result of our incredible generations advancements.

      How old are you, were you around at their discovery?
      Ever since I was a young boy, I've played the silver ball.
      From Soho down to Brighton, I must have played them all.

      Mobile text messaging. Couldn't live without it. Imagine going back to actually having to RING someone.

      1200s changed the game not 1210s
