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

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...

Subj: Welcome back

Really good to see you back, Bruce. A big hug to Ihug!

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.

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 :)

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

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.
