The reason I have been FORCED to switch Internet Provider is because I discovered something almost unbelievable...
My father(*)who spent 25 years with I.B.M. before retiring,
was working for I.B.M. in Saudi on a two year long contract.
He came home 'early' mid way through the second year,
claiming the contract had 'ended early'.
However, before he left the office he accessed the computer system and permanently locked out not only my computer identification number,
but also my name and my telephone number,
from being able to access the web site for S.B.M. (I.B.M. in Saudi).
I recently discovered this after trying to discover WHY,
he came home 'early'...
He then went to work for B.T. here in England.
(if you don't know, B.T. are as big a phone company and internet provider
as you will find in Europe.
I then discovered that once again my computer AND phone line had been locked out of accessing the internet for the same company,
but this time it was locked at using the main server for B.T.
(my former provider)
AND, every time I tried to 'search' for the companies details, I got a virus that deleted my search engine.
HOW'S THAT FOR BEING A CONTROL FREAK...!!!
Is it any wonder I ended up in therapy...???
* he is the one who voiced his opinion of my illness as...
"..you've had your fun with this illness nonsense - now pull yourself together..."
All I can say is, I'm glad I'm finally getting away from my parents and slowly getting better.
