More fool me...
I just thought my ISP's spam filters had started to help out!
As a recipient of about 500 e-mails a day, I can't think of anything to say, but "Thank you!"

I had been without normal access to e-mail since Thursday and had looked at some of their advice as you referenced. Having taken their advice, ,my e-mail client (Eudora Pro 7) complains about a certificate in the SSL signer chain having expired and won't play any more.
I've had to go over to using Outlook, otherwise, I couldn't get at my e-mail.
On the plus side, there's less spam though.
Still, I'd rather not have had to go through the pain of the migration to a different e-mail client that doesn't have a working import tool to carry over my e-mail from the last 6 years.
I've seen some horrible programming mistakes made by people who have just come off Java training classes then being given the job of writing J2EE applications to the best of their ability.
Surely, it's down the the employers to ensure that their coders have adequate training and adhere to programming standards that they publish. (And possibly enforce by sensible use of tools like JUnit and Cactus)
As usual, if you think training/education is expensive, try ignorance.
The line about "I don’t actually believe there is any struggle to be had really,” he said. “It is almost no contest. We are an order of magnitude ahead. We have more than 200 semiconductor licensees"
I find rather distressing. I remember many years ago, when I worked for IBM (so that's over 10 years ago at least) the stories about the PC CPU choice.
Journalist to IBM - "Why did you chose the Intel part over the Motorola 68000 line?"
IBM - "Motorola didn't seem to want to sell it to us."
Journalist to Motorola - "Why didn't you market the 68000 line to IBM for the PC?"
Motorola - "We didn't think we had to."
The rest is history.
I like competition, I hope ARM do well. I also like the idea of using less power ( and that should be 'fewer' watts, not 'less ) since power does tend to imply release of CO2 somewhere along the line.
