Thank heavens for laptop and wifi!

I'm confined to the sofa with a broken foot ... crutches, cast, the whole inconvenient bit. And I'm blessing the days I bought my laptop (an iBook) and set up my wireless network - it means despite being stuck indoors I'm in touch with my friends, the rest of the world and can even slaughter monsters in World of Warcraft ... all from the sofa!

So if you think a sofa-friendly set-up is too extravagant - believe me, it's not.

I believe that Winston Churchill and Leonardo Da Vinci managed OK without a laptop.

Chris - I slipped on the super-shiny marble floor at Canary Wharf ... sigh. And Gandalf ... they didn't have the option!

In the meantime, we'll try to keep you reasonably amused.

Hey Kate,

dont mean to be nosie, but do u work in Canary Wharf? If so what do u do?

I'm quite interested as I'd like to work there (not specifically Canary Wharf, but around the city) when I finish uni. If u think i'm asking too a personal question (i.e. givin details out to random strangers on the web) sorry and just say so!

Accident Line, ready for the next TV ad?

Sorry probably not funny but you could research them from the couch and may be the Owner would come up with bigger compo.

Are you reading the online computer magazine? click here

Sapins, thanks very much for the link - very much appreciated! and thank you all for your concern. BigMan24, I'm a journalist - I was freelancing at the Telegraph (which is on the 11th floor of the tower). If you rush out and buy the Telegraph today you'll see that (Saturday) I did manage to write all the previews of the digital channels in the telly supplement before I came crashing to earth, so to speak.

My goodness you were lucky to have only broken your foot falling from that height;-)
