Claws Of Doom writes: The users of EveryDNS have been updated with more information about the DynDNS takeover by email. The email says that if you donated to EveryDNS, you will get what is apparently the same service for free from DynDNS.
... anyone who has donated to David and EveryDNS since 2001 will be
grandfathered into free Custom DNS hosting with DynDNS.com. Back in 2001 we
made an announcement to our 19,000 free Custom DNS users that they would
have service for life because of their early adopter loyalty. We promise to
honor that same commitment to you. Have no fear.
Claws Of Doom writes: The BBC are reporting that Swindon Borough Council is to offer free public wi-fi internet access to all the town's residents. Subscribers to the service — to be called Signal — will have limited access but could pay for enhancements to the service, such as 20Mb/s speed upgrades. This fee would be "significantly less" than current broadband suppliers, scheme bosses estimate. The £1m project will be run by Digital City UK Ltd, in which Swindon Borough Council has a 35% share.
