Hotmail fulfills the needful apparently..No more..As is appropriate in India.

Danger Avoid Death: berylman: sendtodave:Because fark doesn't attract any fresh blood. The demographic just keeps aging.
it's the internet news aggregator equivalent of a classic rock station.

Astute analogy and too true.  I can hear the yacht rock playing as I post this.

I'll make the boat drinks.


PLAY SOME SKYNYRD!

Nothing ever gets old here.

That is incredibly apt.

I thought Hotmail got renamed at some point.

Hotmail is like the Hyundai of webmail.  Used to be really shiatty, now is actually pretty OK but there is a huge portion of the population that won't touch because of the history.

Seriously if Hyundai just changed their name I bet their sales would double.

They already have a larger share of the US market than Subaru, Nissan, Volkswagen, and Mazda, and they are knocking on the back door of Honda.

Resident Muslim: maxheck: Phil Clinton:

*sigh* I know I'm setting myself up for a beating here, but what is wrong with hotmail? I have my name[nospam-﹫-backwards]liamtoh*com because my name[nospam-﹫-backwards]liamg*com isn't available. Seems to work just fine for me.

Nothing at all wrong with it, other than perception and snobbery. It's not like Gmail actually does anything better. I have half a dozen hotmail accounts.

Resident Muslim:

So the Indian Minister outsourced his IT requirement to the US?!

/HaHa.jpg

India outsources their travel visas to a US company. I wanted so much to call their support line just so I could find out if the phone was answered by some guy with a heavy Texan drawl claiming he was Ramesh from Dehli.

Heh!
The world is becoming such a confusing place.

When I get confused, I watch TV. Television is never confusing. It's all so simple somehow.

Hmm.
So that's why I hate movies where the good guy dies in the end.

:D

I actually like them, as a counter-balance to the ones where the good guy always wins *AND* survives.

Sometimes the good people die.  See:  Alien3, perfect capstone to what should have remained a trilogy*, even though it's widely hated.


*Though Alien Resurrection is interesting as a sort of proto-Firefly.

Which history?  The part where they ran a decent service on FreeBSD, or when MS bought it and ran it into the ground?

About 2 years ago I worked InfoSec for a fortune 500 company who was looking to transition off Notes.  MS's proposal (for hosted email) included a 4 hour weekly maintenance window - non-negotiable.
I understand CYA, but that's just ridiculous.

Jument: Coolfusis: I don't know about anyone else's reasons, but it's not remotely secure. It can be broken into by anyone with access to your facebook page, if they care enough.

Citation needed.


Recovery questions. Same way Palin's email got "hacked"

Or just call a support hotline and pretend to be an old person for long enough.

That might work for an idiot, but anyone with half a brain isn't giving away recovery question responses on Facebook.

I'm guessing you didn't like the depth and first-rate storytelling that was Predators Vs. Aliens.

Not really, no.

I like the second AvP film better.  That's not to say it was *GOOD*, but I liked the idea of it, and the ending was decent.

Recovery questions, sure. Is gmail better?

Social engineering of support: citation needed.

Now I'm intrigued.
I was joking, but I value your opinion (among another 6-7 people here). So I might look it up.
