GENERAL INFORMATION

This information includes technical information related to your computer and the manner in which you are accessing our site and includes such information as the internet protocol (IP) address of your computer, what operating system your computer is using, what browser software (e.g., Explorer, Netscape or other) your computer is using, and who your Internet service provider is, the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the web site from which you just came and the URL to which you go next and certain operating statistics, such as the amount of time you use our Web site.

All of the above information is for our sole use and under no circumstances passed on to third parties.

EMAIL SOURCE ADDRESSES

The email addresses accompanying most stories are correct and tested to be working at the time of each issue. Our view is, that this is important, as it allows anyone to verify stories direct. Due to the nature of email, addresses constantly change due in the main to Telco business failures. We do attempt to revise changed addresses, but be aware that in many cases we are not advised of the new address. If you wish to contact a writer and get a mail Daemon please email us direct as we may have a newer address on file or have a snail mail address.

Sponsors and websitecustomers do not under any circumstances influence content.
