Speaking off minusNet, have you see the new signatures going around the
plusnet forum :-)

There's one great thread full of people asking for their mac keys to be
oushed through quickly. Great impression for potential customers!

Short term problem. When the greedy guys have all gone it will soon be
forgotten.

Yeah i'm sure that Plusnet will never ever get any more customers who
download more than they deem acceptable.

This time their net scooped up 250 customers. Now from reading what has been
posted today by 'Ian' of Plusnet on the adslguide, it looks like the actual
usage level they deem acceptable is a LOT lower than the figure used this
time to get 250 customers.

Like you said though, short term problem. lol.

I'm just wondering if you're ever going to get a clue? And don't come
back with "got one", thats /not/ a clue, its a bogey.

musk and dropped in the middle of pack of horny clues, on clue prom
night during clue happy hour, they still couldn't get a clue."
