    I'm sorry, but no opinions will be suppressed today.
    Not even your opinion of an opinion?
    Hmmm... I don't know what the hell happened there. In the race between old age and senility, it seems like senility is taking the lead,,,,

    Mike, how much to you pay? (Just out of interest - you don't have to answer).

    I pay 30 a month (standard rate really) which for some people even here in France is too expensive. So they do not pay and go to internet cafe. My wife's family live in Tunisia - the internet cost is the same as France but their income much lower.

    I'm a bit out of town and stuck with WiFi service, (cable sucks here) 12/3 Mbps for about 20 Euro. Got a 3G modem as spare and 3 cell phone cards limited to free talk between them. O, yeah IPTv with only 50 channels that they just started. So, for me to pay another 50 a or so a month for privilege to use Windows would make me an expert in Linux in a hurry.

    I forgot which one won the race, senility or what was that other one? No alcohol involved (i think) but wouldn't mind a shot right now.

    are you talking about amphetamine like that show (orange is the new black or whatever)?

    EDIT: I am an idiot. I meant not "orange is the new black". Clearly it was "bad boy" - you know the one with Kevin Spacey in the toiletGate. Hmm.
