MEMBERS [ ] Protein Mail Problems II 
Protein° Mail is still not a happy. Some punk has found
a way into the server and using it as a relay. Twat.
The fine folk at (mt) are working to get it fixed, but in
the meantime you might experience a delay in sending
mail [receiving is fine], and for those using Outlook/Entourage,
you might want to switch your outgoing [SMTP] server
details to those of your ISP's i.e. smtp.ntlworld.com etc.

decade old, bankrolled from the bottomless reserves

forum than loud music," says Fuad Nahdi, publisher
of Q-News, a British Muslim magazine. "Hip-hop can
harness the rage of young Muslims, and turn it into
EVOLVE [ ] CatwalkCity 
I promised Alistair I'd post something about his new
site, CatwalkCity, weeks ago so here we go, better

inspires Londons fashion, from the ghetto-bling-kids
to the tweed-pensioners and hoxton-fashionastas.
