I can see tumbleweeds blowing through here! Where is everyone?

Who are you calling a tumbleweed? ;) But you're right, I can hear a cold wind blowing through this place... Doom... Gloom... Is it the end? Is it?

Nah. Just quiet for a few weeks again. I'm just glad no one's mentioned Zzap!#108 in a while.

Oh shit...

Certainly is quiet alright! I've moved house a couple of weeks ago and I don't have broadband access at the moment :(( so I can't bear to use dail up all that often, but fear not, I am getting broadband reinstalled in a week or two so I can browse the internet 24/7 at a decent speed. gawd, dailup is reeeeally shit!

Tell me about it!
Just got ADSL last week, and that's indeed quite an experience after my 56k modem :shock: .

Got fed up with Kazaa after a week though. (after downloading my wish list of mp3's (Beach boys - Do it again, at laaast!) & all goals of Bergkamp.(against Newcastle, remember?)

I never-ever wanna go back to the ''beep-deep-deep-peep-tu-tuuu-glrghrghgrrllgrgrllrr-eh'' days.
Ta!

In some ways, I wish I'd have stayed with dial-up. Virgin's service is not good, and the hardware they recommend crashes my previously rock-solid iBook at least once every day. I'm hoping Zen will enable a transition, otherwise I may well lose my giraffe. I mean sanity.

Alright, but do you know what kind of phonebills we were getting!? :shock:
But indeed, I have to admit too that my dialup was also more stable then my adsl connection. But the advantage of finally being able to download a file of ,say 24 mb (like smila's retromag) is groooovy.

Well, I'm putting in a cease request today, as Virgin doesn't allow migration (bastards). Give it five weeks and hopefully I'll have a half-decent service.

With any luck I'll also get to write some broadband stuff for the press, so I can say what a terrible company for broadband Virgin is.

The Pixelsurgeon piece is currently on hold until I hear back from a few people. The final part (about z107) is done, but three other parts are still left to write.

I'd rather not remember, if it's all the same to you.... :cry:

Why does everyone score most of their class goals against Newcastle (Bergkamp, Le Tissier....) ?

Hey Paul, don't be sad. You should be proud that your favourite team actually cooperated in one of the most beautiful goals ever made! :D
Ni!
