..with no comment on quality of Talk Talk's service, so let me provide one.

It's shit.

Constantly dropped connections, impossible to understand the "help" desk, frustration in just trying to get to speak to someone, letters to management ignored.

I'm sitting here at my in-laws on their Talk Talk trying to download a 3Mb file from gmail, and getting constant "Interrupted" errors, which I never see anywhere else.

Incredibly, I've spent the morning researching switching to BT, Virgin and Sky for my in-laws to switch. Got my work done (had to send instructions to customer on how to edit the code themselves rather than upload a patched application), thought I'd read a little slashdot, and wow.. this article is top of the list. I disagree with assessment of Virgin's cable service (my provider at home; they were worse than shit as NTL), FWIW; they're WAAY better than this ... this... cack.

Halo 2 Online Preservation Effort Ends 201

Posted by Soulskill
from the good-show dept.
A couple weeks ago, we discussed news that some dedicated Halo 2 fans were keeping the game's multiplayer alive after support for online play was dropped. Now, a few days shy of a month after support ended, the last users have been knocked off the server. "[A user named] Apache N4SIR outlasted everyone. 'May 11th @ 0158hrs I was FORCEFULLY REMOVED!!' he wrote on the forums at Bungie.net. 'I thought I'd be the one turning off the lights but that was done for me. Good night everyone, my Elite needs a rest.' His last comrade in arms, Agent Windex, was still signed on, as spotted by Kotaku at 4 p.m. US Pacific Time on May 10, but their adventure, which began on April 15, ended after Windex announced 21 minutes later that he had been removed from play and Apache N4SIR suffered a similar fate hours later, as he described in his post."
