Whoosh. I was left out in the cold today. My ADSL line was down since 8am until past 3:30pm. Apparently, it was related to a Network-Outage BBCS/ADSL - what ever that means. Local providers are never very explicit, nor willing to give to much details. There was a 15 minutes wait for the phone support line, so I didn't insist.
The whole of Geneva (022) was down. (check out www.allo.ch ADSL forum for live reactions).
So I managed my way through the day with my cellular GPRS connection. The modem script was a fiddle to customise, but it eventually worked - until I lost the DNS settings, or rather until they weren't set automatically anymore during the connection init. Then I gave up and reverted to tidying up Tara (Mac OS X Server) and sorting out my project files while watching the "Italian Job" in DivX.
While digging online for more info once back online, I fell on this press release from Sunrise:
The prices and details can be found on Sunrise's website <http://internet.sunrise.ch/fr/adsl/ads_pro_info.asp>. That announce made it up a little. I'll be surfing at 2400/200 in February for CHF 98.-/month ;)
