Time of Day traffic and the Patterns of Life by Colin Duffy

This is a Time of Day telephony traffic graph – I’ve been looking at them for most of my working life. For a normal business day they pretty much always look like this: This is how business people use telephones on a normal working day. They generally get into the office and start making calls […]

The Christmas tree season is upon us

As my express speeds trundles at a modest pace in a Southerly direction, laden with the additional passengers of two earlier broken down trains (or simlar) I note a conversation on Twitter turning to Christmas trees and decorations. At this juncture it would be remiss of me not to draw your attention to a post from one […]

Tickets available for ITSPA Christmas Dinner

The build up for Christmas has begun. Well it starts to build up in our house in January as Anne buys up cheap Christmas cards and wrapping paper in the sales. Nevertheless it really is building up now. With that in mind ITSPA is for the first time having a Christmas lunch sponsored by Magrathea. […]

Christmas shopping was never fun

Our daughter, who is away at university, has very thoughtfully taken the pain away from our Christmas shopping by sending us (or her mum at least) a number of links to items she wants for Christmas. Easy peasy – we just have to forward the emails to Santa with endorsements – yes pair of jeans/no […]

The technical business of Christmas trees & the art of netting a boy

It’s a great opportunity to network with people in the VoIP/Internet Telephony space and we have Peter Dawe, founder of Pipex1 coming along to do a […]

2 days til Santa comes yay

This is undoubtedly one of my favourite times of the year. When you are a believer like me the run up to Christmas Eve is very exciting. I start going to bed early and being a good boy so that there can be no question in Santa’s mind that he should be making that important […]

Holiday (Broadband Browsing) Traffic – Internet Style

Holiday broadband browsing traffic, nice and fluid. Thought you might be interested to see the traffic patterns for holiday broadband browsing habits.  Bear in mind that Timico is a primarily B2B ISP so when offices are closed or almost empty it is reasonable to think that internet usage will drop off.  This is quite possibly […]

Duck Suicide Rate Rises In Run Up To Christmas

Apparently suicide amongst ducks is on the rise in the run up to Christmas. This latest victim was clearly unable to cope with the pressures that come at this time of year. Speculation is rife amongst the Timico Network Operations Team as to what made this particular individual “go over the edge”. On the surface […]
