Re: The easy way to get around this* (*most of the time)

It was either https://propellerads.com or amazon aws becuase they both serve these really bad adverts.

Ads! What a pain...

The fact of the matter is that internet traffic has increased by 60-70% due to adverts so if I want to block adverts then yes, I will, and I will find any means necessary to block adverts even if it mean s blocking the cdn websites because ADS ARE A FKN PAIN. If you want me to browse the internet and watch your ads then start paying me otherwise I'll block them.

Your using my bandwidth slowing down my browsing and if you don't like me blocking your ads the STFU.

Criminal records checks 'unlawful' and 'arbitrary' rules High Court

re. Credit check

This should also apply to credit checks as some employers now look at credit checks and with 6 years of bad credit flagged against you can be bad. This is an invasion of privacy and an unjustifiable way for the courts etc to make money.

Ban credit checks. People are not criminals because they failed to make a payment!!

Craig 31

I was with Bethere for years before leaving and going to sky. I left early to jump on a deal and what a mistake. Sky Broadband is worser than having your eyes replaced with hot toffee apples. I spent two months complaining about a poor service only to get a phone call from sky and listen to a guy explain to me for 15 minutes how my bill worked. My batteries then ran out thank god.

No Gingerbread snack for Desire owners, says HTC

Craig 31

re: HTC Desire HD

I've had the htc desire hd for 2 months now and have rooted it and loaded leedroid and tried several other mods and i have to say it's awesome, except for the fact that I can't access the internet through a secured proxy and this bug has been oustanding for over 2 years. Are the advantages of gingerbread over froyo significant? has gingerbread been tried? If there isn't enough memory in the phone can we ship it back for an update? are they going to fix the afformentioned proxy bug because if not i'm soon switching.

questions questions questions and they will need to be answered.
