From comments posted in Windows forum website this morning it would appear that practically the whole world has had spasmodic problems. I could not get e-mail or the INTERNET at all for a period this morning on NTL. I wonder if all the spam that is flying about has contributed to the problems. I change my e-mail address last night to something which is more obscure, in the hope that auto diallers will not find me. This morning I have NO spam compared with anything up to a hundred.
