i suddenly can't check my hotmail, nor can i get onto msn.
maybe your ISP is fucking you about.
Who uses Hotmail anymore. Isn't it all about the Gmail nowadays? In fact, don't you have a Gmail? I seem to remember not being able to send you a file > 10MB once.
gmail picks up all of my mailing list mail-outs and hotmail is for the important stuff.
this is not good :(
Of course you'll need to be able to sign into Hotmail to validate that, which is a bit of a bugger.
could microsoft have stopped me accessing these sites because i don't have a genuine copy of windows?
My copy's not genuine either, I just avoid those "Genuine Windows Validation Tool" type updates from WU.
If it did they'd tell you on the basis that you're more likely to go out and buy a new OS because it'll be less effort for the average user than fucking around trying to get around the problem.
Logs in ok for me, shplums. :(
