Despite the continued lethargy of my telephone numbers in organising themselves location-wise, Orange have been doing a good job of dealing with my queries. In my 4 support calls, I have spoken to an Indian call centre 3 times, and a nationally based one once. Nevertheless, all of the staff I have experienced were competent and helpful, after you apply a little patience.
My number IS porting, the process should be complete by 1600 today; a prospect which I am cautious to believe with any zeal.
Also, seems the whole world and his dog have heard of Minecraft now. That’s great for Notch! Even though it’s Indie (and Alpha build!) it is one of the top selling games internationally, meanwhile the forums and wiki combined get the same volume of traffic as does slashdot. Madness.
