Good grief! I wonder what convinced them to add such a feature! In all honesty, I only really singed up to Gmail in the first place so I'd have a vaguely recognisable name ready for the time in the future when I really wanted one but all the names were taken. I'm an Oddpost user meself, and I guess one of these days Yahoo will actually release their new service on the world, at which point Ill be switched over to them for a few years free premium service.

However, I did find the Gmail account quite handy when it came to installing Google Talk and the desktop search facility. Maybe I'll try actually using the email service for a bit and see if that delete button is all it's cracked up to be!

One for Chillicheese. Warning: it's a horrible site, design wise.

Thanks for that W. You know how to push my buttons

If only Lotus / IBM had made the features more accessible and allowed users greater control over the design and if in-duh-viduals weren't so addicted to the sugar coated vapour-ware from Murky-soft, and if we lived in a perfect world of quality software then we wouldn't even be talking about this. OK, I wouldn't be talking about this, to myself, sat here at 00:18 when I'm starting werk again at 07:00.

I've said it before and I'll say it again (even though no-one's listening). It really is a great but totally misunderstood product combining mail-ing, database-ing, and web-ing all under one app. If it had been evolutionised with us in mind instead of selling corporate seats, you'd be using it to run the big P right now.

enuff, let us never speak of this again.

Well, the cat thread disappeared, and I know I'm probably running the risk of at least some hefty discipline from the Palimplords, but I did think that this was worth mention. It's all about how to make helmets for your cat out of fruit! Obviously it's from the web, and I thought it had a sort of curious wonder to it, perhaps perchance maybe? What surprised me most of all is that the cat in question seems to take it all as a rather everyday practice...



I was unaware, but apparently it's nothing new. Here's 'the original'.

...And I promise I won't post anything more to do with cat's unless given written permission in advance. Honest!

Cats are one thing, Daveybot, errant apostrophes quite another!

Possibly. But I think that says something about its doozy of an owner, don't you? I'd say that cat's expression is one of resigned malevolent contempt - and who can blame it.

Many of you may have seen this already but I still re-visit it from time to time. Angelfire Chernobyl is a profound and moving story and you won’t forget it in a hurry.

Very good. It's like a set of illustrations to Martin Cruz Smith's Wolves Eat Dogs.
