Arab States make play for greater government control of the internet


On the one hand, doesn't a legitimate government have a mandate to at least try to decide on what content is available in its country ?

On the other hand which of these Arab governments is legitimate

On the third hand, the great Arab spring didn't/hasn't turned out exactly as we hoped has it ?

Sky falling: 119,000 Brits flee O2, Be after Murdoch broadband gobble


i phoned o2 to get my mac code cos my £20pm home phone and broadband offer had finished and they had put the price up by 8 quid, so they offed to drop it again by 7 quid which still i thought was ok.

Then they offered to put me through to sky to see if they had any offers reluctantly i agreed & the sales guy said he would make me an offer i couldnt refuse !

He said home phone and broadband for £14pm and free sky HD tv for a year & free dish install included. & then he said if i pay upfront its 120 for the year so a tenner a month

being a cheapskate i accepted & my torrent downloads now come down at full speed rather than seemingly being throttled by o2 & my internet access seems fine for gaming etc

I dont watch the sky tv much, cos i think its a bit crap. But i'm not paying for it so....

I recon i got lucky for a change

3.11 A proper minimal OS that didnt get in the way of what you actually wanted to do with YOUR computer, providing you knew about alt-tab.
