Will you pay to hang on to your Web e-mail address? Hotmail, Yahoo, and others apparently aim to find out.

Wouldn't be too fussed, I just wouldn't use it anymore, rarely use my hotmail account anyway, as I have several pop email accounts - all of which could be used with Messenger anyway!

Helmer : can you reduce your image size a bit please :D its a killer on 56K and is also to wide for the forums ....


I only use hotmail as its free ... otherwise ill just use my ISP one ...... i think the internet will see alot of FREE things dissapear over the next year, the costs to provide free is just to high....

People dont understand how much bandwith and space cost for a guy running a website or providing email to people. They just think everything is FREE ... lol

Also companies are sick of paying for other peoples pleasures and getting nothing in return :p

These free email services are great for spam catching. Only close friends and family get my email address that is from my ISP. I let hotmail/MS take care of the spam/viruses for me

That's not a Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, in a way it is and in a way it isn't - we tell the difference between wether the world is always online.

Like Ever Quest or Ultima Online, when you log out - only YOU character is removed from the world, the rest continues.

In diablo 2, you create the world when you create a game, when you end it, the world dies(metaphorically(sp?) speaking) :)

Me too.. If you read about WoW, you'll learn that it's being developed by Blizzard(http://www.blizzard.com/wow) and it's not even in beta yet - so I hardly play any games these days - except for Ghost Recon, but I finished that yesterday :D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
