Enjoy the convenient
No, this isn't a follow up to yesterday's story about public toilets. However, I have often described the shitty service provided by my ISP Indosat.
I only had 21 spam messages in my inbox this morning ~ happily deleted on the server by my use of Avirmail
. There were also 2 emails from Indosat, one of which is my monthly bill.
For the past month I've been able to log on to Indosat with relative ease; initially I thought it was because businessfolk were away for the Idul Fitri mass exodus, but the happy state has continued.
I was about to gift Indosat another wodge of rupiah but with the intention of changing my email address to fool the spammers for a short while. Now I have the chance to see if Indosat really can offer customer service, with all due regard to their crap English.

Casting my net
a bit wider, I'm going to give Firefox
another plug, or rather give a link to a review
which says it all much better and in greater depth than I possibly could.
If browsers were baseball, Mozilla's Firefox would be the Boston Red Sox (and if browsers were football they'd be Chelsea?). For years, Mozilla (and Netscape before it) has been the underdog that success has eluded. But looking at Firefox now, a little over a week since it bowed in final form, the word that comes to mind is believe.
So, if you want to view Jakartass musings as I'd like you to, then you know what to do.
Finally, don't forget that nominations close today for the Asian blogs of 2004
This one is in the Indonesian category
, thank you. Do check out the others.
