Google: So powerful, even their jokes generate bandwidth

Google joke: TISP broadbandOkay, if you aren't familiar with Google's original joke ("TISP: Going with the flow"), it's here:
http://www.google.com/tisp/install.html

.. don't bother doing a double-take after visiting the link: yes, that's Google's URL: this is a joke from Google awhile back.

And yes, they're suggesting you flush your bandwidth down the toilet for best results.

Fast forward to the present:

This is now actually happening.

H2O Networks Ltd (love the name!) has found a city that their CEO Elfed Thomas says has "360,000 miles worth of sewers" that they hope to use to bring "next generation connectivity" to the residents at speeds approaching 100Mbps.

Yes, this is really happening--the city is Bournemouth in the UK.

Now they just need to come up with a name for the service. Suggestions?

  1. I have a virus which disables safemode theirs a program that forces the computer into safe mode I ran it and my computer is trying to go into safe mode but the virus is disabling it and causing y computer to endlessly loop and not turn on, ever! I tried recovery consol and everything just had to make an account to ask this because no one knows the answer. I have been tryign to remove a couple of viruses that disable my taskmanager and my safe mode boot. So to force my computer into safe mode, i used bootsafe. Now my computer is stuck in an infinite loop attempting to go into safe mode but it restarts into the first page. I went into recovery consol and typed DEL boot.bat that seemed convincing so i retryed and it didnt work. So im desperate for help. Theirs years worth of pictures in their.
