Watched Eurovision tonight, which was fun (and not exactly… - John C. Kirk

Watched Eurovision tonight, which was fun (and not exactly intellectually demanding). However, I was a bit surprised when we came last (the only country to get 0 points) - while our song was pretty bad, it wasn't the worst, so I suspect that the voting has more to do with recent events in Iraq. I.e. the rest of Europe hates us for siding with America. Oh well. The slightly embarrassing aspect is that we don't get relegated next year, due to putting large amounts of money into the contest... On a more positive note, I personally liked the entry from the Netherlands (which I actually voted for), as well as Iceland and Croatia.

you did hear the austrian entry didn't you? i think that stretched the definition of 'sing' somewhat, though the lyrics were complete and utter nonsense which made up for it somewhat:)

Austria was pure brilliance, in a sanity-challenged sort of way :) How could anyone not vote for them? :D

As a first-time viewer, i was quite struck by the political nature of the voting, and the winning song was so bah !!

Btw, which ISP(s) would you recommend for dial-up & broadband connections?

ISPs

When I was using a modem, I had a Demon account. (Actually, I still have it, but I'll be closing it soon.) Now that we have ADSL here, we use Mailbox. However, as always, it depends what you want from your connection. E.g. I run a mailserver here, which you can't do with BT Openworld. But if you don't want to do anything fancy, then their package is cheaper.

The whole first half of the UK song was sung a tone higher than the backing track...
