freitasm: "Courtesy"? Is it free?


No no, its not free but it is just common courtesy of Telecons competition to offer better than they do and be able to ACTUALLY DELIVER IT. Never again will any member of this household return to Telecom or XTRA Internet.
Even XTRAs webmail is pathetic in my strong and sometimes overbearing opinion :D
I said how much it cost in another thread somewhere but it was a fairly large difference in price so really I get MORE FOR LESS.

JAMMAN2110: hopefully the new 1.38Kb signature wont bug you all as much

We recently and informally agreed to an unenforced moratorium on pics in sigs on GZ.

So, like the Telecom ad says....

The Telecom ad version I recall said much worse things like "I've been ripped off" Coz wer're telling Telecom.... We're leaving...... and as I do not watch TV, does anyone have the original ad and other from Telecom to download? I'l love some of spot and the meerkats!

I am curious to know how the DigiTV works.

one image like that is not a problem, some people used two, and thats not a huge problem, but sometimes we got a page full of posts where just about everyone had a pic or two in their sig, it looked awful, and within 2days everyone had pulled their sig pics.

If it gets enough public outcry I'll remove the pic but as a note it is just 1.38KB and can be adblocked by all those that dont want it :D
