Gaming floor email, spam, viruses etc...

After over 5 years online I still have my struggles with new Technology. Spam, Viruses, Network and hardware compatability all were problems in June.

You can read about some of the recent fun and games at:

My email. 
Right now I use editorial@gamingfloor.com ian@ info@ and webmaster@ now. Anything else will not get through.This is to stop me from being bombarded with viruses and dodgy computer generated messages.

Happy with your email account?

Yahoo raises stakes in e-mail war

Yahoo have now made the changes. http://mail.yahoo.com
100 meg's of storage and individual messages may be up to 10 meg's in size. They have taken out some of the Ad's as well. The premium service for $20 a year offers an amazing 2 Gig's of storage.

The storage factor is an important one. Particularily for those on the ships who may want to Keep their C.V.'s, photos and other stuff online until they can download it to their home P.C.

22nd May. WSOP - $10.000 final starts Today!
On the eve of the $10,000 No-Limit Final I have to mention Ram Vaswani from the Hendon Mob. He has made 3 final tables so far and came 3rd in event No.30 the $3,000 No Limit Tournament winning $143,740. An amazing performance.
Not forgetting other Europeans of course. In this particular competition 5 of the 9 on the final table were from Europe. Lets hope the grand final is the same :)

There will be 2,600 competitors in the Final (compared with 839 last year) and a big percentage of them are being sent by Internet Poker rooms. I have had a small punt on Ram at 250 to 1 on Betfair where they are betting in running on the event.
