I have lost my broadband connection at home! Eeek!

So, it looks like I shall spend a few days in the local Starbucks working from there. I may be a tad hyper as well, as the local branch has run out of decaf coffee and there is only so much of the real stuff I can cope with per day. They have also run out of the the usual paper napkins as well – I hope they can’t run out of internet!

Anyhow, the internet died almost to the minute at 10am yesterday (suspicious?) and it took until 5pm for BT to accept that there was a fault outside my control – and will look into it within 48 hours.

So, a few days in the coffee shops in Canary Wharf trying to work and not oggle the handsome chaps in suits wandering around the place. I prefer Starbucks as their T-Mobile WiFi is more reliable that the Sip ‘n Surf from the Cafe Nero – and frankly, I find Cafe Nero coffee too bitter for my palette anyway.


The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.

Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.

Thank you
