I have been receiving spam from a particular freak.

Andrew Lloyd.... His unsubscribe link is non - existant or does not work in some cases; however there is a portal which you can supposedly report the spam to. 'compalintous.info' (Not a Typo - Was it not supposed to be Complain?)

I Don't Think So...

Hey Nate,

You would think that after 30 years they would learn to spell and use proper grammar and punctuation. I highly doubt they are legit...most likely it is a phishing scam to get your valid email address to ensure you get plenty of other SPAM.

I wouldn't trust it...My .02 anyways. ;)

BTW - Those emails are coming from TopGame casinos that have obviously sold our customer information to third parties...I know this as I use a different email address ([email protected]) for every casino I sign up with and I am getting the same emails sent to my TopGame email addresses.

I was not computer literate at that tender age and probably playing in the sand with my diapers on... :D

In the words of VWM (or very similar).....

The network gained a public face in the 1990s. On August 6, 1991, CERN, which straddles the border between France and Switzerland, publicized the new World Wide Web project, two years after British scientist Tim Berners-Lee had begun creating HTML, HTTP and the first few Web pages at CERN.

An early popular web browser was ViolaWWW based upon HyperCard. It was eventually replaced in popularity by the Mosaic web browser. In 1993 the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois released version 1.0 of Mosaic, and by late 1994 there was growing public interest in the previously academic/technical Internet. By 1996 usage of the word "Internet" had become commonplace, and consequently, so had its misuse as a reference to the World Wide Web.

Meanwhile, over the course of the decade, the Internet successfully accommodated the majority of previously existing public computer networks (although some networks, such as FidoNet, have remained separate). During the 1990s, it was estimated that the Internet grew by 100% per year, with a brief period of explosive growth in 1996 and 1997.[1] This growth is often attributed to the lack of central administration, which allows organic growth of the network, as well as the non-proprietary open nature of the Internet protocols, which encourages vendor interoperability and prevents any one company from exerting too much control over the network

I am sure I can spare an hour or three now that the weather has settled down to a more boring state for the weekend. Just let me put new Lithium batteries in my keyboard, do some finger excersises, and have a decent dinner before I begin.



.... forget it mate - I will be on strike again before you get past the first page of A4
