    Tucows Rating

    About to show my age, but what rating should we give Tucows - maybe a half cow?

    For those who don't understand, Tucows started out in the 1990's as a rating service for, and provider of, shareware and freeware. Their rating was shown by cow pictures - so a 2 rating, for example, would show 2 cows, a 2 1/2 would show 2 cows and half of another, etc.

      Wow, Tucows has changed since the last time I looked at their site, which would have been 2000?

      I'm pretty sure when I installed Internet Explorer 5 (?) from a CD supplied by my ISP Tucows was one of the favourites it installed.

        I’m surprised David Attenborough has not discovered them in a beached Whales stomach they were so prevalent.

      Sounds like UK2 have outsourced their ‘Professional Mail Services’ and appear to be a reseller.

        More like the company that purchased them thought they could save money by bunging their whole email platform in one location.
