I certainly do. British Telecom (with their market near-monopoly in the UK)
are about the most profitable company on planet Earth, reportedly. I reckon
I spend 5-6% of my salary on Internet. But what the heck? I spend 3% on
/food/, for Pete's sake.

No, it's the coffee. Another of my anti-freewill arguments is that, dose me
up on 3+ espressos, and I'm a semi-intellectual kickboxer all night, but
keep me to herbal teas and I duck all arguments. For the last two days I've
drunk nothing but Camomile infusions, and I've spent my time just reading
everyone else's posts and saying "Oh, that's really clever, I'm so very sorry."

Warning: I've had 2 espressos today, and am borderline Ninja.

>BTW: What's Eudora?

Email package. Quite nice, too, except I've only got Eudora Lite, so I can't
do anaything clever like filter out Dan Plante's posts ('cos he said he
wanted his jar shifted away from mine). For this reason I'm going to look
for a downloadable version of Eudora Sumo.

If you mapped memespace onto a 2D plane, then made a 3-D graph with
Activation Level as the vertical axis, and animated shots of the graph over
time, it'd look like the progress of some crazy Hokusai ocean.
