You betcha! (but 125 a month is a bit hefty still)...
Maybe if we do this, we can get a few more folks to chip in, and we could
do it reasonably cheaply? 10 people means 25 quid/month each ;) Whaddyis
Unfortunately Justin Hall (Wired.com web pioneer) got justin.org in about
1993, so I'm settling for jmason.org.
PPS: Nick, regarding UUCP, I remember trying to set this up a LONG time
ago and giving up in extreme frustration. It's easier nowadays now that
the old UUCP impl's that came with SunOS etc. are obsolete, and new
(presumably friendlier) Linux impls are available; but I'd imagine it's
still a lot less trivial to set up than fetchmail. I bet you don't agree
but then you've probably set up more UUCP installs than had hot
PPPS: Apparently esat.net no longer do that ISDN callback thing where
they call you when data arrives, and later bill you for the ISDN charges.
