From: Jonathan Dodd For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: I hug Ihug! Congratulations on the last minute reprieve Bruce, and a big thumbs up to the wood bros for their support. With their Russel Brown media commentaries also on their site, Ihug is certainly showing a better personality than the other big isp options, esp now Paradise is just Telstra in drag. From: Allister For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: DSL and caps Ho hum. Paradise. 10Gb. No problems. As usual. Let's have a by-election for communications providers. Let's everyone vote with your wallet and DITCH Telecom. I know I'm stuck with DSL belonging to Telecom, but at least Paradise will talk to me like a customer. I'd switch to IHUG in the light of the announcement about Aardvark, but the fact is Paradise have done absolutely nothing wrong (and everything right) to deserve my leaving them. All you XTRA users, you know what to do... From: Lindsay Williams For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Welcome back Really good to see you back, Bruce. A big hug to Ihug! From: Alan For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Political spam Spam is spam. The issue is consent, not content. It does not matter if I receive electronic junkmail to tell me that I can make my penis grow longer, buy viagra online, buy child porn out of russia, that the end of the world is looming and I must repent, or to vote for the candidate from the "reunified church of the globe artichoke" in the upcoming election. It is all unwanted, I pay for all inbound email, both in ISP fees, time and electricity, as does every other email user in New Zealand. The only positive thing about political spam is that it clearly shows who the more blatent thieves are among our politicians. From: Peter Jenkins For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: DSL Usage... In reponse to your request about Telecoms DSL usage - I am with PARADISE on a cable modem, and their usage page is up to the second and works very well, I have never had any downtime with it. I can surf to a site and then watch my Mb usage go up instantly, so I dont know why Telecom couldnt do the same. I would make the assumption that Paradises ADSL usage count would work in the same way. BTW: Big thanks to IHUG for sponsoring this column, and good to see you back again :) From: GeriatricGeek For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Bravo Ihug Journalistic Integrity deserves recognition. Sheesh 5000 regulars?...100 offers for subscriptions? Anyway, 10 outta 10 for the Wood Bros. Bruce is one more statistic who wont be collecting the dole plus $5.58 per hour for writing the *TRUTH*. Onward and upward for BROADBAND. For what it's worth, Ihug will get my customer loyalty at some future time when I become grumpy with my present ISPs From: James For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Ihug What happens when you want to publish an expose of Ihug, does the money stop you? Aardvark Responds: Hey, IHUG are the sponsor -- but I'm still the editor and, as I said in today's column, the hard-nosed editorial style will remain unchanged.Hit Reload For Latest Comments
