Journal Journal: My being used for spam too

I feel my account at is being used for this but I have no way of getting in
contact and can't login to fix it!

Anyone know how to get in contact?! It's especially annoying as I paid for the service.

Journal Journal: Qued posts since disable

Subject: Focus on accessibility and killer apps

For me:

- never cheap enough; any price is a liability to carry round
- size/weight (I decided to go for a p800 phone to cut on size)


- ABILITY TO STORE AND RECALL NOTES quickly and efficiently. Writing to a txt file is fine but should be able to search it quickly. Automatic tagging of date is nice too. Easy input and easy to see display!!
- maybe a calender
- maybe a calculator
- if it was very cheap GPS or similar / maps / similar

What I don't need:

- media features; it's a luxury not needed
- colour screen
- more gumpf

All I really need is a digital piece of paper. But to do this it comes back to those basics of:

- battery life
- easy input
- clear output (display)
- size
- price

They should concentrate on getting these basics right! I feel people really aren't interested in anything but the

'killer apps' like:

- reading/writing
- map viewing
- translation (the universal translator is feasible; speech rec -> txt -> translation -> speech?)
- diary

^ but these are all I an think of

Journal Journal: Comment posting disabled 2/9/2004 - subnet?

Oh dear, someone on my ISP has been a git. I'm pretty sure it's not my brother. Checking my posts I can see that someone doesn't seem to be using my account as expected.

Was able to post:

Not able to post:
