Yeah – good luck with that

Actually, I am in two minds.


Because there is some real shite on TimesOnline.

Okay – maybe not me alone, but as this service struggles to get off the ground – with gits like me blogging screenshots of any bullshit behind their paywall and generally taking the piss – complaints about quality will carry much more weight.

So I’ve registered for the preview of the new site.

You can do the same here:
