      Thats OK -- I'm not fussed about footy -- although there were more than a few black armbands (and sore heads) this morning in Aberdeen....

            Football, is that the game where you hit the ball with your head? The real name of the game is called Sucker or something that sounds like that. Yawn!

            2 2 was 1 2.

              Reminds me of the one place that has the absolutely highest bandwidth of any other company out there. The Post Office.
              Latency sucks however.

                        Camel, when you take your extended holiday / sight-seeing trip to England, use Orange as your ISP. I hear their service is just stellar!!
