Did you really? Your choice of emoticon implied otherwise. Still not quite sure if you got it. But if you did then kudos to you as not many would realise what Miss A was alluding to.

I'm pretty sure I got it, unless it's a seriously thickly layered in-joke for gay men that goes far deeper than just the highlighted change to my post.

Perhaps the wrong emoticon. Maybe this one: ?

Either way, why is everything on this forum such hard ****ing work nowadays?

So back on topic, the blithering idiots at Du and Etisalat have managed to knock out all other live video feed technology emanating from the UAE. My security webcam and remote control doorbell no longer work

I cant keep an eye on the dog when I'm at work and can no longer interrogate or record visitors that come sniffing around my door during the day

Fortunately the door lock also has bluetooth (and a manual key back up) so I don't think they can knock that out, but I'm sure they'll try.

I'm sorry but I did chuckle at this.

Dubai just isn't ready for the futuristic style of living. The ideas are there, the desire, the funds, the willing customers, but somewhere along the line an idiot is involved and buggers everything up.

I had a business call with a company in Ukraine yesterday - on Skype. No problems and I was not using a VPN.

Ive not used Skype since they moved/taken over by Microsoft !


There are a lot of better alternatives - worst case there is IMO or even Whatsapp !

We have Skype for business on all machines in all our offices worldwide so we can chat, share screens, present etc.

When in the office it works fine. Connection isn't great on site when on wifi.
