Superior google?

Why, yahoo offers pop3 & smtp, both over ssl - can't be more superior than that can it?

Global-warming scientist: It's worse than I thought

Jim

GW?

Anybody noticed that the media quietly moved to using term "Climate Change" instead of "Global Warming"? Morale is simple, pay your taxes whatever climate...

Red Green Ken v Porsche in battle of the polls

@David Tibbs: Still not Red

"He's trying to force everybody to drive crap cars"

Well, not everybody but your average Joe. The few privileged won't be affected at all - even more, the common folks will be paying for the privilege not to be able to drive, to have to use shitey profit-making "public" transport etc-etc-etc. This is more like oligarchism by definition, not communism

@Jonathan: Good for environment

"the end result is better for the environment"

The best for the environment would be if we just kill ourselves off - no carbon footprint at all. I guess that's what the greenies are advocating and Ken's implementing? Well, what can I say - they should lead by example (Blair likes this phrase so he should be among the first) and commit sepuku and save the world :)

"You like the environment, dont you?"

Definitely. I also hug trees :-) But I like to get there by car nevertheless...

"jesus give Ken a chance - his stated plan for using the money raised by this scheme is to promote cycling and other public transport"

The future (Ken's) image of London: http://www.velorution.biz/images/Velorution%20-%20Chinese%20commuters.jpg

Wait, I've seen it somewhere - 20-30 years ago in China??? Not exactly a way forward as far as my understanding of progress and development goes...

Red Ken???

I don't get why everybody calls Ken red, commie, socialist, liberal etc - what he does is purely capitalist approach - make money and more money regardless (using all means available). The real rich won't be affected, as one ABD poster (http://www.abd.org.uk/pr/609.htm) puts it "fiver won't even buy me a cigar". Squeezing working folks dry is nothing to do with socialism, he's a typical capitalist... or should i say fascist?
