  • How-Tos: How to fix a Yahoo Mail script error

    I access my Yahoo Mail account via a dialup internet connection on my Windows XP computer. When I try to log into the webmail interface, IE reports script errors '871' and '865' on the page.

    Despite sharing every banal aspect of my life in mind-numbing detail, I remain some way short of 150,000 Twitter followers. Even the mighty PC Advisor's informative feed remains a little shy. But UK design magazine Creative Review's Twitter feed has hit the magic number, off the back of a print circulation of 20,000 and a website that delivers around 1 million page impressions a month (compare that with PC Advisor's 4 million or so views, and you'll see just how impressive a stat that is).
