Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

One in ten women who use the Internet end up shagging someone they met on the Web, or so says a survey by newomanonline.co.uk. A quarter of the click-chicks have also used the Net to build a "romantic friendship" - which is probably a euphemism for only sleeping with them on the third date.

This is good news for, say, a single, male online journalist. Although, sadly, we don't believe a bleedin word of it. Are people really using the Internet to find carnal encounters? Sounds a bit dodgy to us. Plus, what's the likelihood of finding someone who lives close enough to do the wild monkey dance with you? A far better option would be to go to a bar in town, drink too much and drag some poor soul home.

Still, nice thought. Now where are those newsgroups? ®
