Tiscali coughs to spam blacklisting after a week without email

Don't use your ISP's mail service

Keeping your email with your ISP is a mug/newbie's game, you don't want to be prevented from leaving your lame duck ISP because all your contacts have that address.

I suggest setting up an account with fastmail.fm and buying a domain. That way you have control of your mail. Though I do have sympathy with all those who have found out the hard way.

English court cannot hear SanDisk MP3 patent case

Tim Abell

boo hoo, mp3 is patented, so support ogg vorbis

It's a sad state of affairs that the hardware manufacturers allow patent trolls to bully them.

They alone have the power to move everyone to ogg vorbis support, and out of the vicious circle of existing device support fuelling new device demand cycle.

Never mind the fact I think patents are just plain bad for our (uk) economy.
