Brit CompSci student faces extradition to US over link site

FAIL

Muppets!

The UK muppets who agreed to inconsistent extradition laws should be shot. If the US constitution blocks the extradition of US citizens to the UK then our UK to US extradition treaty should be equal. Then the **** (nice american people) can't complain. Grrr...

AOL Sucks / Muppets / AOL CDs

http://www.aolsucks.org/ - says it all

I still can't believe (well, I can) that they managed to convince so many muppets for so long that the normal internet was in fact AOL content!

AOL CDs were only good for drinks mats - I had quite a collection (turned upside-down) on my coffee table for many years.

AOL's demise can't come soon enough!

BT hikes call charges

I have a home phone and only use it for broadband (Plusnet) and the odd 0870 / 0845 call that isn't included in my mobile minutes. Fortunately I live close to my exchange and enjoy a 17Mb connection.

Every 6 months they call me up and tell me that they'd like me to come back to BT. Each time, I have to explain to them that I only really use my home phone for broadband, that I'm not using another provider, and that if they offered a broadband-only line rental tariff then they'd know this!

Bring on a broadband-only (possibly with IP-phone service) where the line rental is half that of the current line rental (or less).

Brighton NIMBYs complain over BT broadband upgrades

AlexPresland
WTF?

Don't put them in Brighton...

...put one at the end of my road. In fact, I'll even let you put it in my front garden. If people complain, the addresses should be identified and their broadband profiles should be downgraded to a fixed 0.5Mb - that'll teach the ungrateful *******s!
