The Internet April Fool?
"From the beginning of June you will need to buy a licence to access the Internet or risk facing a fine of up to £1,000. Computers with their monitors set to a resolution of 1024x768 and above will cost £121 a year to license, while resolutions of 640x480 and below will cost £40.50 a year....

The new charges will be enforced by Internet detector vans which will scan neighbourhoods for the telltale signs of Internet use. "We'll be on the lookout for closed curtains and the phosphorous glow of a computer monitor in the dead of night," said Harrow. "Subscriptions to computer magazines, a penchant for take away Pizza and Linux T-Shirts are also dead giveaways that you're using the Internet."
Does that mean because my monitor is 800x600 I'll be exempt?
