Web sites should stop using email for signups

Posted 09-27-2012 at 11:31 AM by Skaperen

Email is so last century. Sure, many people still use it. I do to communicate with family and friends. But this is really out of place for so much other stuff. It just gets polluted with all the signups people have to do. People are now creating alternate email addresses, usually anonymous, for all these signup sites. This is so the real email, if they even have one, does not get polluted.

Multiple flavours of Linux- what to opt for?

Posted 09-23-2012 at 04:26 PM by leosubhadeep

I must admit, I am so confused!

Say you are a kid (you always were a kid once! ) and go to a mall with parents for shopping. You see an icecream parlour in there, and couldn't resist running towards it.
