New hybrid storage solutions

In a shock overnight development a reader has contacted The Register to say she has received a password and user ID from British-based unmetered ISP, AltaVista.

Although she hasn't used these to sign up to the service, she believes she was sent them.

"I'm not actually 'using' it, but they did send me an invite," said the reader.

"It's kind of lost in the mists of time, or at least in my unfeasibly large inbox, but I can forward it if you like," she said.

This is the first piece of evidence offered so far that AltaVista actually has any users of its unmetered service and it's an exciting development.

The Register waits with delicious anticipation to see whether this lead develops into the discovery of an AltaVista unmetered Net user.

Fingers crossed, eh? ®
