    Your 'short' url isn't found and you user group doesn't cover Telewest or
    NTL, it appears to be only for ADSL - not much of a 'broadband' user group
    is it?

    Hi Bill,

    I'm not sure what your problem is your end, but the 'snurl' works fine
    here - from two machines (one has not touched the referred to link
    previously - so its not cached or some such). From the stats, I can
    see others are reading the story - so presumably it must be a problem
    with Snurl at the time you tried to access the site. My appologies -
    but the service with Snurl is under review - and this is the first
    problem I've hit.

    Regarding coverage. Yes, indeed, we're not immeadiately listing the
    likes of Telewest and NTL. Why ? Because our strength is in xDSL
    technologies and ISPs. At the moment we have communication with a
    couple of ISPs and it is some of those that we list, and report news
    articles on - have section on the forum etc etc. The thought behind
    UK-Bug was not that we should 'willy nilly' cover all ISPs under one
    blanket - but assign someone the task of being the ISP representative
    (for want of a better word) - and work with the ISP in question, on
    behalf of the users that the representative speaks for.

    Over time, the number of ISPs 'covered' will increase - of that much I
    am sure. How much depends on users really. The guys behind UK-Bug
    can only belong to so many ISPs (one of the criteria for being a rep
    is subscribing to that ISP - a fairly logical assumption really).
