Now quit playing mind games with me and make it work for them." I fear that Tiscali won't be the ones facing the problems. Instead we'll have "Hello, Telenor User Support" "My friend sent me a link to this really cool website, but your stupid system tells me it doesn't exist" "What's the website?" "www.really-cool.alt. Now fix your systems so I can access it" The poor guy/gal at the other end of the line will need a really good answer. Does anyone here have one? Not to mention the answers we need for the market droids... "Hey, I heard that Tiscali is offering more Internet than us at no extra cost, and they make a lot of money on it too. How soon can we start doing the same?" This puts a lot of pressure on other European ISPs, and eventually also North American ISPs (to make this on-topic :-) I hope the rest of us can stand together against it. A good start would be to come up with a common response to the two pressure groups outlined above. Bjørn
