It would be nice to have O2 speeded up. I have noticed that the more links and images displayed on any web site the slower O2 takes to complete downloading. Google seems to be a clever web page design, hiding most of the adverts and links and this seems to be why the front web page of Google is quick to appear. Quite different to the clogged up MSN site. Do the web pages poorly designed contribute to the speed, or could O2 overcome this by better development?

As for the spammers, what are some of the best measures to take to avoid them? I have not experienced any attacks or had to worry about such a problem yet. When you get spammed, do the spams have any sender email addresses attached? I was thinking of sending heaps and heaps of useless "No Thanks" replies to overwhelm the spammers Inbox, is this worth doing or not? A friend of mine who runs a water pump business would get spammed occaisionally in the middle of the night on his home fax machine with advertising from companies selling beauty products, furniture, and many products that have nothing to his pump business. When he wakes up the next day he replies to each one with 50 pages of the same 2 BIG words on each page "No Thanks" to their fax machine just to waste their paper in return for wasting his time. Cheers, Steve.

  • RISC OS artist wows public with digital artwork
    A RISC OS-using artist has described exhibiting his digitally-created work in a public gallery as a "rewarding experience". Richard Ashbery, who used ArtWorks and Photodesk to create his images, showed off patterns and colourful illustrations to punters, who told him his work made a change from the oils and watercolour masterpieces usually exhibited.
