Ever had to register to buy online - and been PELTED with SPAM?


Re: Master of your own domain

Swinton are also one of the pita spammers I can't shake off. Another is taxi.com Their T&C even state "You may opt out from receiving this information at any time". This is complete BS of course as I have tried many times. Fortunately my email hosting service provides the option of a blacklist and I take great delight in getting a daily spam report and reading who's been deleted at source. TAXI send at least one message *every day*, often four!

Like lots here I also use the company@mydomain email assignment.

Commodore founder Jack Tramiel dies at 83


Great Memories...

RIP Jack and thanks for everything... C64 to 128 to Amiga. It was a privilege to live through the most exciting days of computing, innovation and diversity. I still have a box with all my 1571 floppies in the cupboard upstairs.

I loved my C64 and even ended up writing my own assembler and BASIC toolkit as I couldn't afford the assembler cartridge! Cheers.

So, what IS the worst film ever made?


Leprechaun 4: In Space

Oh yes. I did wonder if it was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek as the budget was so small. It was so bad I almost enjoyed it.
