Orpheus Internet, the ISP headed by Argonet support guru Paul Vigay, says it has secured the use of the Argonet.co.uk domain. It's understood that its owner, Freedom2, plans to switch off the Argonet ISP next month.

Vantage fan and Qercus writer Richard Ashbery reports that dealer APDL allegedly attempted to "persuade [Cerilica boss] Simon Birtwistle to release the Vantage source code so that further development and bug fixes might be possible."
