3rd party twitter clients have had this functionalitly for ages. It's extremely useful for muting hashtags that you've no interest in or, as a previous poster pointed out, muting someone for a short duration. I also use it to mute accounts I don't follow, that other people retweet into my timeline.

Re: 3 Meg?
In the Spring, BT are going to start rolling out 'Fibre on Demand' to those willing and able to pay. The caveat is that your cabinet already has a FTTC twin from which the fibre to your premises can be spliced. No actual pricing has been announced, but initial indications are £500 for the install plus an unknown amount for blowing fibre to your house (£1000 has been bandied about for premises 500m from the cabinet).
One possibility is that your exchange will never be upgrade to fibre. Instead, your FTTC cabinet will receive its fibre via a spine from the closer exchange (cheaper, and has been done before). Then, at some point in the distant future your exchange will be shut and all lines migrated to the other exchange as BT have already announced plans to close smaller exchanges.
Re: Two problems...
"Secondly (and this is something James May commented on when he built his LEGO house) too many of the pieces are single-use."
My 6 year old would disagree - he likes the kits (got a space shuttle last year), but once the kit is built, it gets dismantled and the parts are used for all sorts of crazy contraptions that he conjures in his imagination. :)
He also love paper jets, water balloons & cardboard boxes :)
Re: Never heard of Yammer - sounds useful though.....
Current site has just started using it - so far, it seems pretty useful for linking up their worldwide operations (IT, Engineering, etc)...
On a side note, it looks a LOT like Facebook (feeds, groups, etc), but has Twitter features like mentions (using @), the ability to 'follow' people & hash tags
