the uk web archive is here:
previously to get your site added, you had to fill in a form to give permission.
I would think they would honour a removal request.
archive.org seems to not be really crawling regularly or very much,
robots directives (robots.txt, http header, html ) will stop webcrawlers.
It would be a nice feature of uk webarchive for the website operator that you could download the WARC (or other standard archive format) of the website snapshot.
I got an unwelcome cold call a week ago from google (india by the sounds of it) trying to push their Adwords credit card. (annoyance was increased since they provide zero support for google merchant center where they advertise the card recently).
The FSA regulated Google entity called 'google checkout' or something has offices in UK that are in same Building as AMEX. They do not have a phone number to call them - do not trust the google jokers.
ATT are merely remitting an incorrect invoice to the US Gov. pity that is not criminal.
I guess they did not break down the origin of the calls in a bill on a monthly basis to the us gov?
Re: Suggest people google....
not much to be found.
'scanning for viruses' and other bothersome bugs
Firefox downloads a file, and claims it is scanning for viruses, yet I have not antivirus installed, what gives there? Shit coding.
Fire freezes up, honestly why not have a thread for each tab, with the interface on a higher prioity?
(talking about ver 5 and before)
read in News Scientist (over 10 years ago?) a report on its link with car crash victims - indicating that responses were slowed(hence in part the cause for the crash).
why not put the price of guns up too, see if that stops more murders?
so is steam needed?
not even close to starting to be plausible.
surely there is a limit to the time in the month and the bandwidth available - therefore unlimited should effectively equal that sum and should be disclosed to customers (probably averaged down to account for lower speed areas).
url for release notes:
fairly sure in my guessing that their 'update' built in feature of firefox is a fairly robust download manager - yet still there is no effective download manger in ff4.
I am glad to see the bug whereby 'pdfs larger than 5mb not being viewable' is marked as being fixed.
cuil - seriously?
their website is not even online - how does this help your apologist argument?
cuil - you forgot to use a joke alert icon.
stirring it up wiki leaks
how many hosts have turned down your money for hosting - only amazon? thought so.
what of the otherside of the coin?
I used to play an mmo - it was riddled with bots, RMTers, dupe bugs and scammers. There was a bug that allowed duping and stat doubleing and the items would dissapear after logoff. Anyhow - this mmo was never fixed properly nor policed effectively.
If it had been a paid for service you'd think the users would have some sort of recourse due to the lack of customer service ? (as it was it was a Free to play, with an enhancment shop for real money)
