    I wouldn't mind trying it. My Yahoo account has 2gb plus I have 500gb more in my briefcase and "unlimited pictures" whatever that mean. Gotta love Yahoo DSL. <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /> I can't believe all the internet email space I have now. Back when I used Fidonet.....well, anyway.<br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.

    I think this is getting too out of the way from SQL Server and definately from MICROSOFT (hotmail in case you are wondering)

    I think it is high time this topic is locked.

  31. derrickleggett New Member

    ? Guarav, isn't that the idea of this being a "lighter side" area of the forum. I don't think everything in here needs to be SQL Server and Microsoft related, although I can definitely think of some "lighter side" jokes for that. <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /><br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.

    Thanks for this post.

    I was kinda afraid if I did not break any rules.

    By the way, are there any?
    Like topics that cannot be posted or something like that.

    Well, there is a FAQ link at the top you might want to read.
    I don't know of any other written rules of conduct, so I'd say the usual for posting apply here.

    Nearest match:
    The Forum does censor certain words that may be posted; however, this censoring is not an exact science, and is being done based on the words that are being screened, so certain words may be censored out of context. By default, words that are censored are replaced with asterisks.


    ... as long as the individual/group is not offended by the post, we can keep them otherwise this section is for fun.

    There is no end for such marketing tricks...

    Luis
    If one feel that information is confidential why would they put that on web or store in email, there are other means of storage for such things.

    Don't you like this idea?
    The ability to access all your files from anywhere. Anytime.
    I think it's great. Yet I know that security will always be a problem here.
