US elections? No doubt the Presidency will continue to alternate between the Bush and Clinton families, as it has done since the 1980s.

Such is democracy.

in 2007, my UK ISP (Telewest) was taken over by Virgin Media

Telewest Blueyonder were ok, and i was happy to recommend them to friends

Virgin are not ok, and i don't recommend them -- most evenings they throttle back my internet access by 75% or more -- also the quality of technical support has droppped, and calls to them are no longer free, but are charged at a premium rate

so it looks like i'm going to have to get my BT line reconnected and find another ISP (sigh!)

my verdict on Virgin Media? - they are crap!

good men are turned into terrorists
those who oppose the government become enemies of the state
