costs 24 PA and is said to "make browsing much faster"
Has anyone used or has a friend that uses either of these programmes or
would like to comment if these add-ons are worthwhile

Save your money, in general it's all bull****. Like the penis

of us are cursed with 16inches and that's all we're going to ghet.

Newsgroup ettiquette

1) Tell everyone the Trolls don't bother you.
2) Say you've killfiled them, yet continue to respond.
3) Tell other people off who repsond despite doing so yourself.
4) Continually talk about Trolls while maintaining
they're having no effect.
5) Publicly post killfile rules so the Trolls know
how to avoid them.
6) Make lame legal threats and other barrel scraping
manoeuvres when your abuse reports are ignored.
7) Eat vast quantities of pies.
8) Forget to brush your teeth for several decades.
9) Help a demon.local poster with their email while
secretly reading it.
10) Pretend you're a hard ******* when in fact you're
as bent as a roundabout.
11) Become the laughing stock of Usenet like Mabbet
12) Die of old age
13) Keep paying Dr Chartham his fees and hope one day you
will have a penis the girls can see.

Well, for general Internet purposes such as browsing and mail it is
definitely worthwhile if you feel that broadband is too expensive. ONSPEED
uses various techniques the principal one being compression on the fly which
means that websites get sent to your connection at a fifth of the size and
hence is much faster. So depending on what you use the Internet for, ONSPEED
is a definite alternative to broadband.

Don't cheer too loudly or you'll wake Bill Gates - service packs
were banned from cover disks in the UK some months ago and show
no signs of returning :-((
