Er! Think it does affect a lot more than you may think!
Having worked in more than a few pubs in my time, I think this problem will affect more than 1 or 2 Register readers.
In fact, any one who has Ice in their drinks, or has beer from a pump or tap.
I've found a fungus in many ice makers, check to see if there are black spots in your ice - and No, I am not joking.
Also, the pipes delivering your beer from the barrel or keg should be cleaned each week using a recommended chemicals, plus there should be, as in the best bars, a wash with clean water after every barrel change.
The yeast from the beer can mutate into interesting variations if left un-attended, and can lead to victims calling on the Great God Huey on the Cosmic Telephone.
A pub with a regular cleaning regime is a good pub - they will probably look after the beer better as well. Ask the bar person when was the last time the pipes were cleaned - if they don't know, drink elsewhere.
Personally speaking, I prefer my beer to pass through my kidneys and not pass my tonsils on a return journey.
First Phishing email Facebook Down
Just received a phishing email requesting me to download a letter giving details.
Looks very good - but doesn't address me by name as the real emails do;

Thank you for your attention,
PS: hidden my email address as email@example.com as I don't want any more spam
OK, OK, so I am a type of geek with AOL, as I have found AOL reasonably easy to work with on my mobile phones as I get them as my main access - up until recently - when due to all the fiddling around with the email by AOL, it has been becoming a complete PIA trying to connect.
I'm using Android at the moment, but I have to use the Opera mini browser to access email, but that doesn't guarantee being able to actually read them.
I'm giving them 1 more week, then if it doesn't resolve, I'm off to gmail full time.
