Do Not Want

Phorm and co are not wanted in the UK. Even my "normal" friends that think the best thing in life is facebook understand what Phorm is and would be prepared to change ISP to avoid it if necessary.

France says 'Oui!' to three strikes for music pirates

Human rights act please save us from this shit yet again.

T-Mobile getting out of blighty?



T-Mobile have been faultless for me over the last 4 years.

If 3 buy them I would advise every customer to run a mile, their customer service is horrific.

The only other decent mobile operator in the UK is Orange IMO.

Voda call quality is cr@p, Virgin is on T-Mobiles network, and O2 I had big issues with.

The good book: How to bet better online


Pitfalls are many

1.The bookie can cancel a bet siting "palpable error"

2. Rule differences can mean a winning bet is voided.

3. UK bookies only want mugs and will limit any knowledgeable punter to a max stake of pennies

4. Risk of error is high. All it takes is one misclick on a betting exchange to lose big!!

5. Risk of a bookie going bust with your money in there, never to be seen again.
