F**k You! Amigo
One of the most intrusive and offensive popups on the Latvian web is the thing that the mobile phone card company Amigo has put up on www.one.lv. It blocks you from signing into you e-mail account with some flashing picture of Amigo's evil little mutant dwarf. The little m**therf**ker has shown up every time I try to access a one.lv account here in Cannes (where I am on "vacation" with my filmmaker wife, hence almost no posts until after May 20). I have a regular LMT subscription, but this piece of shit has totally put me off from buying an Amigo card should one of my grown sons come to Latvia and need a local phone card. I'll get them a Golden Fish (Tele 2) or an Okarte instead.
