AltaVista in missing persons manhunt

They're out there... somewhere

The Register has launched a desperate attempt to find users of AltaVista's headline-grabbing unmetered Net access service.

An attempt yesterday to woo these elusive users - there are allegedly some 120,000 of them out there - with a lonely hearts ad failed to draw a single bona fide response.

Britain's Net users - and the Reg - are now getting worried.

"How can 100,000 people disappear like that?" asked one concerned Register reader.

"It's spooky," said another.

Which is why The Register is calling on all Net users to be on the look out for anyone who may have been formally invited asked to sign up to Britain's best-hyped Net access service.

If you catch a sight of anyone, even the sneakiest of glimpses, then please post your findings over at The Reg Forum.

Thanks, and happy hunting. ®
